MTNL plans to enter cable TV business

According to Tapan Sikdar, the minister of state for telecoms, Mahanagar Telephone Nigam is planning to enter the cable television business along with a government-owned broadcaster.

Tapan Sikdar told parliament that MTNL -- a provider of fixed-line, cellular and internet access services in Bombay and New Delhi -- could meet customers' needs of entertainment, information and education with such an alliance. Another feature of the proposed alliance included granting a licence to MTNL to start a cable network using its optic fibre and copper cable network in the two cities.

MTNL, in which the government holds a 56 per cent stake, could use content provided by the broadcaster, Prasar Bharti, to offer multimedia services and give customers access to streaming video.
