DTH policy is too divergent: Experts The government may have opened up direct-to-home services in the spirit of convergence, but the popular impression in the broadcasting industry and among cable operators and media experts is that the policy is “divergent” in many aspects. First is the condition that makes the licence valid only for DTH broadcast facility. Other modes of communication, including voice fax, data, communication and the net requires specific and additional licences from authorities. Value added services being one of the USPs of DTH, this condition is seen as divergent. Another term that set off the alarm bell is that the DTH licensee will be bond to carry channels of Prasar Bharati on the “most favourable financial terms offered to any other channel.”
