You don't need to subscribe to
expensive sport packages to watch
ICC World Cup matches on TV.
According to a Supreme Court order
on Tuesday, World Cup matches will
be telecast free on public
broadcaster channel, Doordarshan.
That means the India versus
Pakistan match in Adelaide on
February 15 can be seen on DD. The
World Cup starts February 14.
The Supreme Court on Tuesday
stayed a Delhi High Court order
restraining Doordarshan from
sharing the feed free with cable
operators. "This arrangement that DD
showing free feed had been there for
the last seven years. Let it
continue," a Supreme Court bench
comprising Justice Ranjan Gogoi
and Justice Pinaki Chandra Ghose
said in an interim order.
While the Delhi High Court had
barred Doordarshan from sharing the
World Cup live feed with cable
operators, it had declined the plea
to quash Prasar Bharti's 2000
notification making it mandatory for
cable operators to carry DD National
and DD News channels.
The order was passed on the plea of
the Board of Control for Cricket in
India, ESPN and STAR who had
contended that cable TV operators
were getting live feeds through DD
channels free of cost, resulting in
loss of revenue for them.
The Supreme Court has asked ESPN
and STAR Sports to submit their
suggestions and will take up the
case on February 17.

its virtually blackmailing by the supreme court. If the govt wants to show to the public for free why dont they win the rights and do it.

will never bid for any event around the world... will file case against broadcasters for not sharing the feed... will again file a case for revenue distribution.. will telecast their own advertisements... poor pre n post match shows... eagerly waits for wicket fall so they can run poor advertisements before action replay... poor commentry.... moreover It is a Government Agency. :(

their motto is WHY TO WASTE MONEY WHEN YOU WILL GET IT FOR FREE.

Ek to chori... uprr se seena chori...!!!

Here in Pakistan people's can watch all the world cup matches free to Air on ptv sports but they buy the rights and do it the proper way. If the government wants it's people's to watch it free to air they should get the broadcasting rights and then give it to Dd

Rural areas can watch via antenna it was allowed but now all India can watch it for free on cable. Why will they pay star. If you want to show it then bid for it and pay those many crores

Ten Sports has the rights for world cup in Pakistan. Ptv sports i guess is taking feed from ten sports and paying the money.
