IndiaCast switches off signals to Siti Cable

MUMBAI: IndiaCast Media Distribution
has switched off signals of the
channels that it distributes to multi-
system operator (MSO) Siti Cable
across India.
The signals were switched off in both
digital addressable system (DAS) and
analogue areas.
IndiaCast disconnected the signals on
three grounds—non-renewal of
agreement, outstanding dues, and
non-submission of subscriber reports.
“We have disconnected signals to Siti
Cable in DAS and analogue markets.
They have not renewed agreements
which ended in March. They have not
paid outstanding dues to the tune of
Rs 8–9 crore [Rs 80–90 million]. They
have also failed to submit subscriber
reports. This prompted us to
disconnect the signals of our channels
to them,” an IndiaCast official said on
condition of anonymity.
When contacted, Siti Cable CEO VD
Wadhwa said that the content
distributor was asking for a very high
increase in subscription fee. He also
claimed that it does not owe anything
to the content distributor.
IndiaCast distributes a bouquet of 49
channels from TV18, Viacom18, Disney
India, Eenadu Television and Epic TV.
