DTH likely to see only one or two players, says Sushma

According to the Information and broadcasting minister Sushma Swaraj, there’s a possibility of moving towards a duopoly or even a monopoly in setting up the Direct-to-home platform, even thought it’s been opened up as a multi-player forum. On the foreign media entry, the score is 20:80, with 20 per cent in favour of foreign media participation, while 80 per cent is against it. She also said that a new chairman of the Prasar Bharati board is likely to be appointed soon along with three part time members. She added that the government has requested the four member high level committee, headed by Vice-President, Krishan Kat, to start the process of selection as early as possible. On the controversial FM radio issue, Ms. Sawaraj said that the government would invite bids for 70 cities listed under Phase B, only after the Delhi high court issues its verdict on the petitions filed by the defaulting parties of the first phase.
