Zee to offer Internet on DTH platform
NEW DELHI, Nov 6 (PTI) — Zee Network today announced a joint venture with Sivasankaran’s Sterling group for establishing its Direct to Home (DTH) operations in the country.
"We are happy to welcome Sterling group as our partner since they will add value in terms of the technology they have developed. And we have a versatile set-top box with features like interactivity, DVD and CD player all in one," Chief Operating Officer of Zee Network Dev Naganand said in a statement here.
He, however, did not disclose any further details about the JV company’s structure.
Naganand said a simple version of the set-top box would be available to the households at less than Rs 5,000 adding that the higher end of the box will also be able to provide Internet services on the proposed DTH platform.
"We are happy to join forces with the country’s leading content provider Zee Network," promoter of the Sterling group Sivasankaran said.
He said the company had already signed similar agreements with other channels including Sun Network, Udaya and Asianet and also had an in-principle understanding with established foreign and Indian channels to be on this DTH platform.
"We believe that there will be nine million computers in India and all computers will be served by DTH with a DTV card, which will cost Rs 995," Sivasankaran added.
