Prasar Bharati denies reports of DD India going off air

Prasar Bharati today denied the reports in a section of the media that DD India is going off air. The report is unfounded and baseless, said Member (Personnel) of Prasar Bharati, SC Panda. On the contrary, he said informed that the Broadcast major is planning to expand its footprint to several new areas of the Globe.

DD India is currently available in Insat 4B and will continue the same. Currently DD India channel is being distributed in Canada, USA, Mauritius and a few other places through separate arrangement and is presently being distributed in Europe via HotBird 13B ‎through a legal agreement with Deutsche Welle which will expire on September 30, 2015. However, Prasar Bharati and Doordarshan have been trying to renew the agreement for the HotBird 13 B satellite space either through Deutsche Welle or directly through HotBird.

Furthermore, the Prasar Bharati Board is also taking measures to increase the distribution of DD India channels in other parts of the Globe and for that a proposal has already been circulated among the Board members and the process will be initiated after the approval.
