TRAI proposes to facilitate and incentivise the cable TV operators who are implementing DAS before the cut-off dates notified by the govt. For those switching over to DAS before the sunset date, the tariff order applicable for DAS will apply for them. Other salient points of the draft tariff order, proposed for the analogue cable TV systems, remain the same.
TRAI has recommended imposing penalty on MSOs and LCOs who fail to implement consumer billing as specified by the QoS regulation for DAS in the draft amendment.
TRAI has extended the deadline for comments on its consultation paper on regulatory framework for platform services to 29 September after its open-house discussion with stakeholders in Delhi was disrupted.
While there is a need to have a strong regulatory framework for platform services offered by distribution platform operators, there should be no restriction on the kind of content that can be offered and the number of platform services that can be launched. This was the general consensus among the participants at the recently held open-house discussion, organised in Mumbai by TRAI.
