Conditional Access System (CAS) has been temporarily stalled

The introduction of cable-controlled Conditional Access System (CAS) has been temporarily stalled. The Law Ministry has told I&B that an amendment to the existing Cable Act is necessary for introducing the new system of carrying private channels into TV homes.

Information & Broadcasting Minister Sushma Swaraj mooted the CAS idea to reassure the cable lobby feeling threatened by the advent of Direct-to-Home (DTH) services. The expectation is that CAS would work to the benefit of cable operators and their subscribers.

The CAS technology will enable viewers to receive the channels they want as against the across the board standard package now being provided.
