James Murdoch in India to review Star’s India operations

James Murdoch, chairman and CEO of the Hong Kong-based Star Group Ltd., is in India to review Star’s operations and the proposed KU-band direct-to-home TV service. Murdoch’s visit gains significance as Star India recently said it was not interested in distributing NDTV’s proposed infotainment channel, NDTV World, as part of the Star bouquet.

Sometime back, Star made a presentation to NDTV, contracted to produce programmes for Star News channel, seeking a review of existing programmes and ways to spruce up the news channel with Hindi programming in order to take on competition.

Though Star India has never confirmed developments on the Star News channel front, industry sources indicate that the company is planning to rope in a high-profile news coordinator to liaise between NDTV and Star in order to infuse more synergy in news operations.
