RPG, Tara drop plans to launch cable channel

Calcutta-based multiservice operator RPG Netcom and Rathikant Basu-promoted Broadcast Worldwide have dropped plans to come out with a city-specific cable channel. Confirming that both the companies have dropped plans of launching the cable channel, RPG Netcom chief executive Probir K Bose said that the companies found the project not very viable in the light of launch of several Bengali channels in the last one year. Doordarshan has been running its terrestrial, DD 7. Zee had launched Alpha Bangla while Tara runs a Bengali channel and plans are afoot to come out with a Bangla movie channel. Broadcast Worldwide currently runs four regional language channels in Marathi, Punjabi, Bangla and Gujarati. The company has recently tied up with BBC to dub programmes in regional languages.
