Following TDSAT’s directive, Zee Turner shares feed with Tata Sky

After the Telecom Disputes Settlement & Appellate Tribunal (TDSAT) came down heavily on Monday against Zee Turner for not abiding by its earlier order to share its channels with the other DTH service provider, Tata Sky, and ordered it to share the same by 5 pm, Zee has been forced to share the feed with Tata Sky.

“…Without prejudice to the rights and contentions of the respondents and without insisting on any condition whatsoever, the respondents will supply the signals to the petitioner today itself before 5 ’O clock,” TDSAT had ordered.

The telecom Tribunal had on September 20 asked Zee Turner, distributors of Zee and other channels, to provide signals of all its 32 channels to Tata Sky at a price of Rs 75. Under the DTH licensing agreement, sharing of channels with all DTH platforms have been made compulsory, denying any exclusivity in this regard.

When contacted Tata Sky officials confirmed that they had received the decoders from Zee Turner. “The price of our bouquet won’t go up till four months of our launch, which ends in December,” said an official.
