Siti Cable claims damages against Eenadu Television for signal switch-off
MUMBAI: Moving the TDSAT, Siti Cable has made claims of damages against Eenadu Television for switching off signals of its channels.
The multi-system operator (MSO) has told the Telecom Disputes Settlement and Appellate Tribunal (TDSAT) that this has resulted in a loss of business.
Responding to Siti Cable’s allegations, Eenadu Television counsel Balaji Srinivasan argued that the signals were not disconnected but were disrupted due to technical glitch and the same were restored on 17 November at around 2 pm.
The broadcaster was in the process of launching four new channels due to which the technical glitch arose, Srinivasan stated.
While admitting that the signals were restored on 17 November, Siti Cable counsel U Thakur argued that the disconnection was deliberate. The MSO had suffered loss of business on account of that.
Admitting the petition, the tribunal directed Eenadu counsel Vaishnavi Subramanyam to file the reply within three weeks from 20 November. Rejoinder, if any, may be filed within two weeks from the date of receipt of the reply.
The matter has been put up before the Registrar’s Court on 7 January 2016 for getting the pleadings completed, framing of issues and taking evidences.
