VSNL to offer OFC to US for Indian TV channels

VSNL will offer broadcasters a fibre optic path for transmission of television channels from India to New York in the US, making this option available for the first time in the country. This will be drastically cheaper than the normal satellite mode.

Broadcasters will be paying Rs 12 lakh per channel per month for the transmission service. This is far lower than the amount they would have paid for using transponder space.

VSNL will transmit the TV channels to New York, where broadcasters will have to make their own arrangements to distribute to other territories in the US, either through cable or direct-to-home. VSNL will be installing line terminal equipment at the two ends.

VSNL plans to bundle 20-30 channels into one pipe. The STM-1 link will be used to facilitate the service. The company will use the ATM-based (asynchronous transfer mode) platform
