Zee Sports back on InCableNet after TDSAT’s intervention

The Telecom Disputes Settlement and Appellate Tribunal (TDSAT) has asked InCableNet to deposit a sum of Rs 20 lakh with the Registrar and also directed Zee Turner, the distribution arm for Zee and Turner channels, to restore the signal of Zee Sports to the MSO. Zee Sports is currently telecasting the DLF Cup Tri-Series involving India for which it has the exclusive rights.

TDSAT ordered Zee Turner to restore the sports channel from the evening of September 19, 2006 as IndusInd Media’s Executive Director for Corporate Services, Ashok Mansukhani gave an undertaking to the Tribunal that it would deposit the amount as ordered by the Tribunal by the evening of September 20, 2006.

When queried, Arun Poddar, CEO, Zee Turner, said, “Post-TDSAT order, we have restored Zee Sports with InCableNet.”

He further said, “InCableNet had gone to the Tribunal seeking a notice period for deactivation and claiming that Zee Sports was an FTA channel. We have countered both claims saying that as there was no agreement signed for Zee Sports, the question of a notice period did not arise and that Zee Sports had been a sports channel since 2005.”

When contacted, Mansukhani refused to comment on the interim order, saying the matter was sub-judice.

Recently, Zee Turner and Hathway reached an agreement after which Zee Sports was made available to Hathway.
