STAR to hike cable rates

STAR has restored feed of its channel bouquet to Zee TV's SitiCable operators to end a fortnight long imbroglio, but cable operators apprehend an imminent annual subscription rate hike within a few months of the last hike, triggering fresh dispute.

Cable industry sources said the annual hike was imminent and would most likely trigger another cable operators vs STAR feud. The STAR bouquet in India includes STAR Plus, STAR News, STAR Gold, STAR Sports, ESPN, Channel V, National Geographic and STAR World.

At present, the STAR bouquet of channels costs Rs 24.50 per house per month, including payment for the Hindi movie channel STAR Gold.
