Hinduja Ventures receives operating licence to offer HITS service
MUMBAI: Grant Investrade Ltd (GIL), a subsidiary of Hinduja Ventures, has received the wireless operating licence (WOL) from the Wireless Planning & Coordination Wing of the Ministry of Communications & Information Technology.
The WOL is the final regulatory step before making HITS operational, in accordance with the terms and conditions stipulated in the letter of intent (LOI) issued by the Ministry of Information & Broadcasting (MIB) to GIL last year. GIL will offer its headend-in-the-sky (HITS) service under NXT Digital brand.
“We are delighted to confirm receipt of the WOL for us to commence HITS service in India. The launch of NXT Digital is in line with the government’s objective of making India ‘digital’ and we’re proud to be a part of this national initiative,” said GIL chairman AK Das.
“NXT Digital has received overwhelming response from the distribution fraternity in Phase III & IV markets in India. Our broadcast centre and backend systems are fully operational; our broadcaster relationships have been formalised. We’ve already rolled out our COPE mini-headend systems and STBs and we’re ready to go ‘live’ shortly,” added GIL managing director Tony D’Silva.
