TV services in Urban centres to go digital from Jan. 2016 - TRAI

Consumers of 4 metros & 38 cities who were covered under phase-I & II of digitalization will get the benefits of Digital Cable TV services according to TRAI.

The cut-off date of phase-III, which covers remaining urban areas, has been set for 31st December 2015, after which no analog signal transmission or re-transmission of TV channels will be permitted. The list of urban areas covered under phase-III of digitalisation is available on the website of the Ministry of Information & Broadcasting.

TRAI held a meeting with major stakeholders of the broadcasting and cable TV sector on 1st December 2015 to take stock of the implementation of DAS in phase III areas. TRAI noted that progress of seeding STBs in DAS Phase-III notified areas is satisfactory and customers are getting the benefits of digitalisation.

The Broadcasters, DTH operators and MSOs were asked to carryout exhaustive consumer awareness programmes about digitisation of cable TV services so that remaining customers in the urban areas are able to install STBs before December 2015. Broadcasters of TV channels have been asked to send advance intimation to the cable operators about non availability of TV channels for retransmission in analog mode from 1st January 2016.
