TDSAT directs Zee Turner to give channels to Tata Sky on interim basis

The Telecom Disputes Settlement and Appellate Tribunal (TDSAT) has directed Zee Turner, the distribution arm of Zee group of channels, to share the signals of two South-based channels – Zee Telugu and Zee Kannada – with DTH service provider Tata Sky.

The interim order was passed after the broadcast Tribunal admitted a petition by Tata Sky dated December 19, 2008, in this regard. TDSAT has directed the DTH service provider to sign the reference interconnect offer (RIO) with Zee Turner for sharing signals of the two channels.

Passing the order, Justice Arun Kumar, Chairperson, TDSAT, said, “As an interim measure and without prejudice to the rights and contentions of the parties, we direct the petitioner (Tata Sky) to sign the RIO on without prejudice basis and on the RIO being signed, the respondent (Zee Turner) will start supply of signals of the two channels – Zee Telugu and Zee Kannada – to the respondent, for which the respondent will pay in accordance with the RIO.”

Tata Sky had approached TDSAT on the dispute over terms and conditions of Zee Turner given in its RIO, wherein the latter had contended Tata Sky should take all channels of the Zee Group instead of two, as it had done earlier.

The Tribunal also issued notice to Zee Turner, which was accepted by its counsel, advocate Yoginder Handoo, and said the matter would be heard on February 13, 2009.
