Bombay High Court refuses to grant any order against operations of Sun18

Sun18, the strategic alliance between the Sun Group and Network18, has officially commenced operations. In the recent petition filed by MSM Discovery against Viacom18, the Bombay High Court has refused to grant any order in favour of MSM Discovery and, therefore, Sun18 operations remain unaffected. The matter has been posted for hearing on August 17, 2010.

Viacom18 has also initiated legal action against MSM Discovery before the TDSAT, claiming damages, material breaches, misrepresentation and under-reporting of subscriber base.

Sun18 commences operations to distribute a total of 33 channels from Viacom18, Sun TV Network, Disney India Network and Network 18.

Commenting on the development, a Sun18 spokesperson said, “Contrary to some news reports, the Sun18 operations have not been disrupted and we continue business as usual.”

Viacom18 has also initiated legal action against MSM Discovery before the TDSAT claiming damages, material breaches, misrepresentation and under-reporting of subscriber base. In the petition, Viacom18 also sought various other interim reliefs and disclosure. The interim application has been kept for hearing before the TDSAT on Wednesday, July 21, 2010.
