Finally on 31st March, Digitisation has been declared completed in the country on 31st March 2017. MIB has already issued a notice for all stakeholders to switch off analogue signals and has warned strict action against any violation. It is a different issue that as per the minutes of the latest Task Force Meeting held on 14th March, only 64% of STB seeding has been achieved in Phase-III and IV. This is only the official report based on MIS data received from a few MSOs out of a total of 1150. Also, all these statistics are based on 2011 census.

TRAI reviews all DAS Regulations

The TRAI had gone to the Apex Court against the status quo order of the Madras High Court on notifying any content pricing.

Demonetisation adds to Industry woes

The year 2016 will be remembered as a bad year for the industry. Major upheavals were related to forcing a new technology on the masses, particularly the low income  rural people who are mostly illiterate and cannot afford to spend on high technology.

Pain of Demonetisation may last very long

Although Mr  Modi as well his Ministers have been assuring the people that problems in implementing demonetization due to withdrawal of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes from circulation, are only shortlived, yet the impact of the serious cash crunch in the country may lead to adverse impact on the economy. I don’t think even the people who planned the biggest demonetization exercise in the world would ever had thought of the chaos it would create by declaring 86%  of the currency value as zero overnight.

DAS Court Cases to be heard this month

Court cases filed by small MSOs in various high courts for extension of DAS deadline are coming up in the Delhi High Court after they were transferred there on the orders of the Supreme Court. It is the Ministry who is trying to get them quashed at the earliest so as to finish its task of implementing mandatory digitization of Cable TV by the deadline of 31st December 2016, set by the TRAI and the Ministry itself.

Regulations undergoing an Overhaul

Result of the recently held Assembly Elections in four states namely Assam, Tamil Nadu and Kerala and in Union Territory Puducherry has made the ruling BJP jubilant as it has won a majority in Assam and made some in roads in the unchartered territories. Rumour is that it has made BJP confident of finding a solution to pass the GST Bill in the Parliament as well as bring other changes in the business environment of the country.

TRAI, the sector regulator, is in the process of viewing all the tariff and interconnection regulations in the broadcasting regulations in the broadcasting industry. After due consultation the regulator, had held an open house discussion in New Delhi on the Tariff issues, for TV services. All broadcasters are demanding forbearance of Tariff whereas distribution operators like MSOs and DTH operators, are demanding a regulated tariff, where it is RIO based or cost base. Now the industry awaits the regulators final recommendation on the subject as growth of the industry depends on this. Basically it is not a question of ARPUs, it is more the need for transparency, accountability and non-discrimination.

Slowdown in Digitisation

Phase IV implementation is fast approaching its deadline of December 2016 but after the last MSO list issued on 26th February, only 39 more MSOs have been registered by the MIB. All these MSOs are provisional. The whole process does not seem to be transparent as the MIB does not upload the details of all the applicants on its website, with the status of the application and security clearance. Many MSOs are waiting to even get a proper status report about their application for more than a year when according to the citizen charter of MIB, complete registration process should finish in four months after receipt of the security clearance.

The Ministry of Information and Broadcasting has finally decided to approach the apex court to club all the High Court cases, where stay orders have been given on switching off the analog cable and get all these stays vacated. IBF had also filed a petition in the Supreme Court for the same purpose but it was dismissed. In the mean while Allahabad High Court has also given a stay for next three months and the Hyderabad HC has extended the stay for another four weeks. It appears that the Ministry is more worried about the broadcasters rather than the consumers whose TV sets are being blanked out.

Phase III Completed in Government Books

The month of January started with a commotion in the Industry as the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting declared switching off the analog signals in  Phase-III areas,  putting hundreds of Cable Operators in a quandary, wondering how to survive their business. Industry did not anticipate this kind of harsh move by the Ministry as the set-top-box shortage is very serious in the Country and also many regions did not have a Digital MSO feed  for cable  operators who have been earning their livelihood through business for decades.

The MIB has finally decided to close the Phase III of mandatory Digitisation on 31 December, declaring it a great success providing digital connections to 75% television homes in the urban areas of all states. The Ministry held a Task Force meeting on 30th itself and made the declaration giving figures of success without mentioning that the process has been stayed by High Courts in three states of Telangana, Andhra Pradesh and Sikkim and Tamil Nadu has also managed a stay as ARASU cable has not been given a DAS licence by the Ministry.

Not much to cheer about at the Year End

The year 2015 is ending and with it will end the first three phases of mandatory digitization; whether they are successful or not is ofcourse a matter of debate. However, one thing is sure that after 4 years of digitization, consumers are yet to get their choice of content and itemised billing. None of the stakeholders except the government, is happy with the outcome of the process and disputes in the courts have increased manifold.

MIB in a hurry to close Phase III

The Telecom Regulatory Authority (TRAI) has issued a draft order which specifies twin conditions for relationship between a-la-carte price of a ‘Pay’ channel and its proportionate price in a bouquet. This is the second amendment to these conditions, to simplify the calculations for distributing pay channels.

PM Narendra Modi’s visit to the US last month gave a fillip to the New Media industry in the country. He made many media and technology giants like Google, Apple, Facebook, Microsoft, Qualcom and Cisco promise to invest heavily in projects in the country. It is a good sign for the Nation that has been facing numerous economic and political problem in the past. Let us hope Modi can make his Ministers and bureaucrats follow it up to see results on the ground as early as possible.

Impossible to meet Phase III deadline

As the time to end Phase-III of Digitisation is coming closer the regulator as well as the Ministry appears to be getting jittery over a very slow progress in the whole process. It is known to everyone that even Phase- I and II have not gone beyond seeding of set-top-boxes, that too of low quality. There are 7500 cities to be covered in Phase-III mostly far flung areas where even the network infrastructure does not exist.
