MSOs, Broadcasters forms apex committee to frame rules for settlement of dues

Multi System Operators (MSOs) and broadcasters have formed an apex committee to frame rules to settle disputes and ensure discipline in the industry.

The committee, which will have representatives from the MSOs and the broadcasters, is being named Indian Cable TV and Broadcasters Federation.

The apex committee of the MSOs will consist of Ram Hingorani from INCablenet, K Jayaraman from Hathway Cable & Datacom, Jawar Goel from SitiCable, Jagjit Kohli from Win Cable, Asim Dutta from RPG and Jaggi Panda from Ortel in Orissa. Sunil Khanna will represent Zee Telefilms. The joint committee will also have representatives from Sony-Discovery and ESPN Star Sports.

Broadcasters were asked to cooperate with the MSOs rather than take advantage of the competition prevailing in the industry. According to sources, MSOs should also sit with broadcasters to work on pricing, increase in the declaration of paid connectivity and other related issues.

The MSOs are also setting up state committees in each of the four regions. The state committee will refer the issues to the central body for coordination. The Mumbai regional state committee will have among others Neeraj Bhatia from Hathway Cable & Datacom, Ravi Singh from SitiCable and Suvarna from Win Cable as its members. They will take up issues like service and entertainment tax.
