Monthly TV viewing bill set to fall: Trai chairman RS Sharma | Latest News & Updates at Daily News & Analysis

Under the new rules, a broadcaster cannot discriminate against any distributor and RIO offer has to be uniform to all distributors. These rules apply to all broadcasting sectors, including direct-to-home (DTH) segment, cable industry and Internet Protocol television (IPTV).

This will also reduce litigations in the sector as most the issues are related to interconnect agreements between stakeholders, Sharma said.

The new tariff order by Trai mandates broadcasters to declare the MRP within 60 days and distribution platform operators to declare network capacity fee and distribution retail price (DRP) within 180 days.
