AIR plans to provide its services over the net

All India Radio (AIR) plans to provide its services over the worldwide web. Prasar Bharati has invited global bids from Internet facility providers to upgrade AIR’s Internet service to a multi-channel, multi-lingual Internet radio station providing streaming audio.

The ambitious AIR is also intends to extend its digital service to Europe. It is negotiating with WorldSpace, which would sell the service in the continent. For this to happen, AIR will have to hire greater space on AfriStar.

According to sources the proposal is still in a nascent stage, but officials do not foresee any difficulty in the pay service being cleared, since it would mean a commercial or revenue sharing arrangement between WorldSpace and AIR.

The AIR signal, at present, is available only on one beam of AfriStar and two of AsiaStar. Once AIR gets another beam of AfriStar, the service will be available in the continent.
