Turner seeks exemption from TDSAT defaulter’s list in Tata Sky case

Turner International (India) last week approached the Telecom Disputes Settlement and Appellate Tribunal (TDSAT) seeking deletion of its name from the tribunal’s order on broadcasters which had failed to provide signals to direct-to-home operator Tata Sky.

Turner’s plea follows the TDSAT order of March 31, 2007, that observed that all the respondents -- Turner International (India), Zee Telefilms, ASC Enterprises and Zee-Turner -- had defaulted in providing signals to Tata Sky on non-discriminatory basis.

Tata Sky had earlier objected to a plea by Turner to excuse it from a case related to signal sharing that involved Turner’s partner Zee and Tata Sky, a Tata-Star joint venture. During proceedings before TDSAT in the signal sharing case, Tata Sky’s counsel had argued, “Turner officials were actively involved in the negotiation with Tata Sky, and never once offered to share their feed such as CNN and HBO with the DTH operator.”

Zee-Turner is a 74:26 joint venture between Zee Telefilms and Turner International to distribute their channels in South Asia.
