Telecast Ordinance: HC to hear Nimbus petition today

Nimbus Communications has dragged the I&B ministry to the Delhi High Court, calling for a judicial review of the Sports Broadcast Signal (Mandatory Sharing with Prasar Bharati) Ordinance 2007, which will come up for hearing today. The Ordinance was promulgated last week soon after Nimbus refused to share its live feed with Prasar Bharati and challenged the existing uplinking guidelines that made it mandatory for private telecast right holders to share feed with the national broadcaster.

In its interim order, the court had asked Nimbus that runs Neo Sports to share live feed with Doordarshan after seven-and-a-half minutes. It moved the court during the just-concluded Indo-West Indies one-day matches.

When contacted Nimbus CEO Harish Thawani said, “We are waiting for the final hearing from the Delhi High Court. The marketing arrangement that Nimbus and DD signed on a 75:25 revenue sharing model, under which Nimbus gets 75 percent of the revenues and DD the rest, is also likely to continue till the end of the ongoing Indo-Lanka series.”

Meanwhile, Prasar Bharati has already written to the Information and Broadcasting Ministry complaining that the Nimbus’ refusal to share live-feed with it was a violation of the Ordinance.
