Tamil Nadu is the only state where cable digitisation has still not been completed. Tamil Nadu’s state-owned multi system operator (MSO) has been losing market share to private cable and direct to home (DTH) players.
GTPL Hathway is eyeing analogue homes which are yet to make the transition to digital cable. In South India, the company already has a presence in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh markets. It provides cable TV as well as broadband services in the two markets. GTPL Hathway has a footprint in 750+ towns across 12 States.
This is another expansion as in August 2019 GTPL Hathway had expanded its footprint in Maharashtra and entered the Mumbai market through the acquisition of Scod18 Networking.
