Star channels are back in Delhi

Star channels are back in almost all the cable homes in Delhi and surrounding areas as cable operators and Star called upon a temporary truce with the latter switching on the decoders of those cable operators who paid up today.

Star will be hiking the subscription of its channels soon to about Rs 30 from the current Rs 25 per house per month. About nine cable operators paid up yesterday, a couple more are expected to sign up over the next one day.

Few days back SitiCable had said it was weighing the option of moving MRTPC in case Star continued to block the feed of its bouquet of channel to SitiCable operators, specially in Delhi.

Since January 24 last, SitiCable networks in Delhi and some other states have not been beaming the Star channels, including Star Plus, Star News, Star gold, Star Movies, Star Sports, ESPN, National Geographic, Channel V and Star World. Star had also denied that it was forcing cable operators to carry movie pay channel star gold or that it had hiked the subscription rates recently.
