TDSAT orders stay on ESPN-STAR Sports’ notice to disconnect MSOs in CAS areas of Delhi & Mumbai

The Telecom Disputes Settlement Appellate Tribunal’s (TDSAT) stay on the notice issued by ESPN-STAR Sports to disconnect the multi-system operators (MSO) in the CAS areas of Delhi and Mumbai has come as a respite for cricket lovers. This is because the first cricket test match between India and England is a week away. The stay was ordered on July 12.

TDSAT has ordered ESPN-STAR Sports to reply to the stay within a fortnight. The petitioners, Wire and Wireless India Ltd and Hathway, had filed the petitions on July 10. They have been asked to file their rejoinder two weeks after ESPN’s reply, and the matter will up for the next hearing on August 27.

ESPN-STAR Sports had issued the notice in the CAS areas on grounds of non-payment and non-disclosure of subscriber details. The television network insisted that the MSOs had merely given the total number of households, whereas the interconnect regulation requires them to file details of names and addresses of subscribers.
