ESPN-Star Sports restore signals to INCablenet

In an interim order, the Mumbai High Court (HC) has ordered the ESPN-Star Sports to restore the signals to INCablenet. The ESPN-Star Sports had switched off the signal to INCablenet after reaching a deadlock on the increased subscription rate hikes for the India-Zimbabwe cricket match. INCablenet has also agreed to deposit any disputed revenue to the court pending the final order.

Star India has also switched off the signals for its entire bouquet of channels to INCablenet attributing the action to discrepancies in the numbers of the subscriber base.

NCablenet has also alleged that the introduction of pay channels into the domestic market during the last few years without necessary facilities has created problems for cable operators and multi system operators (MSOs).

According to INCablenet, the local cable operators are not able to get benefits from the subscription revenues with channels ganging up and demanding a price hike before an important show or cricket match. The cable operators are also brought under pressure to increase payments for the recent flood of pay channels without any rationale.

This is the second time that the Bombay High Court has passed an order to ESPN for restoring the signals, the first incident took place on the eve of the 1999 World Cup.
