Cable Operators Tariff: According to the information, broadcasters have stopped providing feed to cable operators who have not signed new agreements with higher prices under the NTO 3.0, which went into effect in February 2023.

As the battle between cable operators and broadcasters continues, at least four large cable operators have signed interconnection agreements in accordance with the provisions of NTO 3.0.

According to industry sources, following Siti Cable, a member of the All India Digital Cable Federation (AIDCF), another cable operator, UCN Cable, has sent communications to broadcasters stating that it will comply with NTO 3.0.

The names Siti Cable and its JV ICNCL vanished from the AIDCF press release on Sunday.

 

In accordance with a new order issued by the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI), known as NTO 3.0, broadcasters increased channel offerings by 10-15%, which irritated a group of cable operators, who claimed that this would negatively impact consumers as well as their own business.

According to reports, broadcasters have stopped providing services to cable operators who have not signed up for a new contract with the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) in order to comply with the law (TRAI).

The Indian Broadcasting and Digital Foundation (IBDF) accused All India Digital Cable Federation (AIDCF) members of making “inaccurate remarks regarding the new price regime” and invoking “consumer sentiment” in a statement last week.
However, the IBDF later stated that most DTH and cable operators have already begun implementing the new prices, which will result in a 5% increase in consumer prices after four years.
