Satellite company Globecast, is in talks with Indian private broadcasters for offering tele-port services for uplinking and downlinking from India. Tele-port, refers to satellite infrastructure, which allows broadcasters to beam the channels. At present, Jain networks is the only private tele-port operator, which can uplink for other channels including Indian and foreign. While Eenadu TV also has a tele-port facility, it is exclusively used for uplinking its own channels.
Zee TV is waiting for government approval for its tele-port facility while in government sector, VSNL has a tele-port, which is used for uplinking Doordarshan channels.
Globecast, which is the broadcasting arm of France Telecom, is also launching its "MCAST connect" services in the next 15 days and is also negotiating with many internet service providers to deliver multi-cast solutions for supporting internet backbone to areas lacking such infrastructure.
