Home Cable Network loses case against ESPN

Delhi lower court today ruled in favour of ESPN Software India Limited in a case filed by Home Cable Network Ltd directing the latter to stop unauthorised distribution of ESPN and STAR Sports signals to hotels.

The court summoned the managing director of Home Cable Network Limited, and ordered him to give an undertaking that he would stop the unauthorised distribution of the sports channels with immediate effect

ESPN Software India had switched off the ESPN and STAR Sports services to the Delhi-based Home Cable Network last Friday on account of unauthorised distribution of the channels by Home Cable to hotels and non-payment of monthly dues to ESPN Software.

Home Cable Network also cleared all outstanding dues to ESPN Software India in presence of the judge.

Home Cable Network has an estimated subscriber base of over 8,000 homes in up market localities such as New Friends Colony, Ishwar Nagar, Maharani Bagh, Sukhdev Vihar, etc. However, the cable network pays ESPN Software for only 2,500 homes, which is less than 30 per cent of actual homes serviced.
