Prasar Bharati moves SC over Delhi HC’s order asking it to carry 3 Zee channels

Prasar Bharati has moved Supreme Court challenging Delhi High Court’s order asking it to carry Zee Group’s three channels – Zee Smile, Zee Jagran and ETC Music – and Total TV and Chardhikala Time TV on its DD Direct Plus DTH platform.

Prasar Bharati has been opposing carrying these channels on its DTH platform for sometime. A bench headed by Chief Justice KG Balakrishnan recently stayed the Delhi High Court order and directed the Telecom Dispute Settlement and Appellate Tribunal (TDSAT), whose order had been upheld by the High Court, to hear the matter.

Earlier on September 23, though the High Court had asked Prasar Bharati to air the TV channels under question, it had allowed the public broadcaster to charge Rs 60 lakh, up from Rs 25 lakh charged earlier, as carriage amount, a move contested by various broadcasters.
