Activate signals of ETV channels to Den Networks: TDSAT to Ushodaya Enterprises

The Telecom Disputes Settlement and Appellate Tribunal (TDSAT) has directed Ushodaya Enterprises to activate the signals of its ETV group of channels to Den Networks.

This order is in response to a petition submitted by Den, which stated that Ushodaya had not activated the signals despite the orders of the Tribunal on September 30. The reconnection was supposed to be carried out within 24 hours.

TDSAT Chairperson Justice Arun Kumar said, “We accordingly direct the respondent, Ushodaya Enterprises, on its responsibility, to ensure that the signals are received by Den Networks to its complete satisfaction by 4 pm today. Wherever the signals are in MPEG-4 and decoder’s boxes and SIM cards are in MPEG-4 technology, the petitioner, Den Networks, should be able to receive the signals such that it can retransmit the same.”

The counsel for Ushodaya argued that Den had MPEG-2 decoders of ETV Marathi, ETV Gujarati and ETV Bangla, and that the decoders should be changed to MPEG-4 so as to receive uninterrupted signals.

The counsel for Den contested this argument and produced the MPEG-4 decoder box.
