Till 1996 star movies used to show totally uncensored movies with ratings beside the logo. after that bit by bit censorship has totally destroyed the viewing experience
like in abroad channels premium cable channels which are unbound with tv censorship regulations like showtime, hbo we too should have similar like those on STB's. but i don't think it would ever come atleast in our lifetimes :D

We all have to thank a certain lady named Pratibha Naithani for protecting our minds from getting corrupted by watching nudity and / or violence on tv. She is the self-appointed keeper of our morals! :sarcastic:
She is best known for her Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed in the Bombay High Court against the broadcast of all Adult films and programmes on cable television. Due to her efforts, even the international channels had to adhere to the programming code of India.Since the law provides that no Adult content can be shown on television 24 hours, the Bombay High Court passed various orders in her PIL. Though she has been given the title of moral police, it is actually legal policing.

This lady single-handedly ruined watching english content on tv.

Some movie channels have gone beyond censorship. They have started cutting movies according to whatever suits them so they can insert more ads. This happens especially with Hindi ones. Soldier movie was shown twice both times without any song. Sarfarosh movie was cut brutually. All the songs and huge number of scenes - all trimmed. Baazigar on DD national was reduced to a mere 1 hour 30 minutes with some ads thrown here and there. Important portions missing
Ab piracy na kare toh kya kare? You censor english movies because they are explicit according to you. You censor hindi movies because you think they are too long and that space can be better utilised with ads. You show us retarded Indian shows with zero sense and logic.
What to watch then?

Well its not about stopping any body, its about ones choice, adult content should be a matter of choice, some sawant or sheravat, kiling or rape scene should not enter my bedroom without me choosing the same.

I am guessing there is no internet access allowed in her home as well.
Pratiba Naitthani is an Indian professor She is best known for her Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed in the Bombay High Court against the broadcast of all Adult films and programs. My whole effort is to make media safe for children and to get the law of the land implemented. The law says no Adult content on TV because we need to be sensitive to the sensibility of all the viewers including children.

Yeah. Was just going through its schedule. Seems they do have content to show. I used to think its all about the lok sabha proceedings.

Possible. Who knows, a bill is passed several years from now saying that doggie style is banned because it hurts dog's sentiments.

I know two journalists that were part of the team assigned the job of fixing Lok Sabha TV and making it more than just a streaming tool of LS proceedings. It was headed by a very respectable media personality who was given a very tight budget and the end result was very good based on what I saw. They have sane debates and lots of other programming. Very similar to regular news channels without the bullshit :)
