IMCL restores signals of Star channels to Telangana cable ops

MUMBAI: Multi-system operator (MSO) IndusInd Media and Communications (IMCL) has restored signals of Star India channels to local cable operators (LCOs) affiliated to Telangana Cable Operators Federation (TCOF).

Accordingly, the Telecom Disputes Settlement and Appellate Tribunal (TDSAT) has disposed of the TCOF’s petition against the MSO.

TCOF had moved the TDSAT against IMCL for unauthorised deactivation of Star India channels. The federation had written a grievance letter to the tribunal, which was treated as a petition.

Vadivelu Deenadayalan, who was previously directed to appear as amicus curiae on behalf of the TCOF, told the tribunal that he had been informed that the respondent (IMCL) had restored the supply of its signals to the member LCOs of that federation.

“The grievance of the federation, thus, stands redressed and it no longer wishes to press this petition. It is accordingly disposed of,” the tribunal said in a brief order.

IMCL had informed the tribunal that the channels were disconnected in view of an audit of its system.
