SABe TV has served a legal notice on Turner International India on charges of non-performance and breach of confidentiality of the agreement. The company had appointed Turner to distribute its Hindi entertainment channel in the country for a period of two years.
According to industry sources the notice was issued on Saturday. Sri Adhikari Brothers Television Network vice chairman and managing director Markand Adhikari confirmed that the company had served legal notice to Turner.
SABe TV has accused Turner of not making proper efforts to distribute the channel. The company has asked for an explanation from Turner for not seeding the desired number of decoder boxes which, they feel, would have further enhanced the already growing viewership of the Hindi entertainment channel.
