etc gets licence to set up an uplinking centre

ETC Networks is the first company to obtain licence from the government to set up an uplinking centre in Mumbai, the centre of several broadcasting channels. ETC plans to commission the earth station by October at Andheri . The estimated cost will be around Rs 5.5 crore. Besides, the cost on digital encoders per channel will be Rs 40 lakh. It will be using the 7.5 metre dish.

ETC will be uplinking its two channels from Mumbai and also plans to offer the services to third party channels based in Mumbai and are currently uplinking from Thaicom.

Zee Telefilms is awaiting government clearance to uplink its broadcasting channels from its earth station set up at Noida.

Channels using this service will have to cough out Rs 6 lakh a month, similar to what they pay to Thaicom. But they will save on costs as channels will not have to send the tapes across to the cities where their uplinking centres are located.
