CAS coming to more cities including Gurgaon and Noida
Consumers in the metro cities are still facing issues with the recently introduced CAS mechanism for cable television. It seems like the government is unconcerned with these issues and are planning to expand this coverage to other cities in the country.

A firm decision as Dasmunshi said is expected by the first week of february. CAS is a must and the sooner this happens the better. But it has to be done in a systematic way ensuring that CAS implementation in the first phase is atleast 80%. Imo a time period of 2 months is a must before implementation of CAS begins in the next phase.

I'm pretty much holding out for Airtel's IPTV (or something else) to come along too. TV is recreation for me, and I would consider it a personal tragedy if I couldn't deal without for a couple of months.I'm not sure why people like maahkaal has such a soft spot for CAS as is clear in various threads. I do think that things like EPG and better quality picture is a step in the right direction, but as things have turned out it's been pretty disappointing. The only demographic of people it has helped is middle-class 1-TV households. For poorer people (e.g. servants) who would get cable at concessional rates from cablewallahs (because I think they got a poor signal, but viewbale nevertheless) now they are screwed. From Rs. 100 they will have to pay Rs. 250+. And for people like me who have 3 TVs in their house, my cable bill jumps from Rs. 300 a month to Rs. 1,000 without a proportionate increase in quality or service. DTH in that sense is much cheaper, except for the fact that you have to buy the STBs and can't rent them. And all the talk about "DVD quality picture and CD qaulity audio" and "up-to-date EPG" and other 'cool' services are all glib.Anyway what I really wanted to say is that why the hell is this thread in "Broadband in India" and not "Conditional Access System"?!?!?
