IBF to discuss Content Regulation and CNBC-InCablenet row

IBF is holding its 3rd Annual General Meeting in Mumbai on September 27, 02. The issue likely to dominate the proceedings is the current row between broadcaster CNBC and cable distribution company InCablenet. The member Broadcasters will also discuss the self-regulation measures on Content.

Several other issues are also on the agenda, television media research being one. According to sources, member Broadcasters are expected to argue for an expanded household panel size of 12,000 homes. This is significantly higher than the current size of over 5,000 homes.

But it might be the CNBC - Incable that gets discussed vociferously. Last week CNBC had reported that the CBI had framed charges against Hindujas in a Delhi court.

InCablenet, owned by Hindujas, reacted by pulling the channel off air. CNBC called this reaction as meddling in its content and has reportedly stopped all coverage of Hinduja companies and also pulled off all advertising from the group. This episode had raised some eyebrows - 'can a distribution system censor editorial content.' Sources say, that in the AGM, InCablenet might get a strong censure from the Broadcasters.

The meeting is expected to also address the election of new President, Vice President, Treasurer and Directors of Indian Broadcasting Foundation.

First run on the site at 1:00 PM on Tuesday, September 24, 2002
