As on 30 April, the total registered MSOs stood at 1,384, with Arasu Cable being the only MSO with a provisional registration.

The MIB had granted 193 MSO licences on 10 March and 20 April. Tamil Nadu government-owned Arasu Cable TV Corporation received provisional registration with the condition that they would digitise their network within three months.

Besides, Arasu’s registration is subject to the MIB taking a final call on the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India’s (TRAI) recommendations on the entry of government entities in TV broadcasting.
