AIR offers its infrastructure for WorldSpace radio players

All India Radio (AIR) is planning to share its infrastructure for the WorldSpace radio players. Although the AIR channel will start with uplinking from Singapore, to be able to beam its signal through the WorldSpace platform’s AsiaStar satellite, it is likely to be allowed shortly to uplink from the country itself.

AIR is also planning to offer the facility of uplinking from the country to other broadcasters on the WorldSpace platform as well.

Once the uplinking from the country is allowed, AIR would have two separate programming line-ups—one for India and another for the rest of the South Asian region covered by AsiaStar. Among the countries to be covered by this beam are India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Burma, Nepal, UAE and Afghanistan.

The AIR service on the WorldSpace platform will start on February 27, with programming coming from the existing FM1 and FM2 channels. AIR will broadcast a news-cum-entertainment programme from the platform. Currently, there are only about 25,000 digital sets present in the country
