IBF to request government to allow Ku band uplinking for broadcasting purposes
The Indian Broadcasting Foundation (IBF) plans to give a representation to the government sometime next week to allow uplinking on Ku band. Recently, the government had lifted the ban on Ku band, but this high-power band could be used only for Direct-to-Home (DTH) TV operations. For other broadcasting services, however, uplinking is allowed only on C band frequency, which is much weaker than Ku band.
The meeting held in Mumbai was scheduled to take a decision on the uniform rating system for TV channels, broadcasters have sought a clarification on the matter. A few months ago, IBF members had expressed their intention of evolving a uniform rating system for TV channels, but there hasn‚Äôt been any headway in that regard.
At present, in the absence of any uniform guidelines, independent agencies rate programmes on various TV channels based on proprietary parameters. Therefore, the need for a proper, fair and genuine system of rating TV programmes. In line with that objective, IBF is putting together a technical committee.
