Honchos of broadcasting world to attend the dinner meet on March 14

The media and the entertainment sector is abuzz with activity. On March 14, honchos of the broadcasting world, including News Corporation chairman Rupert Murdoch and AOL Time Warner CEO Gerald Levin will be meeting the information and broadcasting minister Ms. Sushma Swaraj. She’ll be inaugurating the mega media event Frames 2002 in Mumbai.

Among other what raises interest would be the fact that dad-son duo (Rupert and James) would be present at the March 14 dinner together in Mumbai. Among other media biggies who have been invited to attend this do include BBC’s Patrick Cross, Mark Young and Manisha Shah; Japan-based NHK’s Yoshirnori Imai; History Channel’s Carl Meyer; and Tech TV’s Tom Grams. Many of these visiting media personalities are said to have specific Indian interests. And Ms Swaraj’s presence at this dinner meeting may lead to some fruitful deliberations.

According to sources, Star Group CEO and Chairman James Murdoch is visiting India mainly for Frames 2002. Where as Rupert Murdoch, will be in the country to oversee the workings of the Star channel. Is DTH high on his agenda? If you remember last time he met Star officials in India was when KBC was introduced and it changed the fortunes of Star in India.Are we going to see any major policy announcements ? Is he going to announce the foray of STAR into DTH?

The broad issues like service-tax on broadcasters, Communication Convergence Bill, conditional access system to TV channels, cable piracy, Digital Terrestrial Transmission (DTT) and museum related to broadcasting and promotion of Indian programmes globally are expected to figure prominently during the dinner meeting.

According to sources, broadcasters would once again try to impress upon the minister on the need for a revision in DTH guidelines.
