TataSky complains to TDSAT about carrying all channels of Zee Turner

DTH operator TataSky has complained to the Telecom Disputes Settlement and Appellate Tribunal (TDSAT) that it cannot carry all channels of private broadcaster Zee-Turner as some of them were region specific and all subscribers were not interested in viewing the channel.

A TataSky official said, “Zee-Turner has five bouquets with a total 51 channels. Zee was imposing that all channels to be carried by TataSky.”

TataSky’s counsel, Ramji Srinivasan, said that channels such as Zee Alfa and ETC Punjabi were region-based channels and should not be imposed on the viewers of other regions.

The DTH operator had dragged Zee-Turner to TDSAT in July 2006, alleging refusal of signals. In an interim order, TDSAT had directed the broadcaster to provide its feed to TataSky at the rate of Rs 75, which is half the price of cable rate for its two bouquets.

However, TataSky wants to pick and choose from their bouquets on a la carte basis. The hearing of the Tribunal will be on March 8, wherein TataSky and Zee-Turner would present their arguments.
