Tata Sky still gets no feed from Sun TV

The Sun TV-Tata Sky spat over channel sharing is set to intensify. The Kalanidhi Maran-promoted Sun TV yet again failed to comply with the Telecom Disputes Settlement Appellate Tribunal’s (TDSAT) March 19 directive to provide its channels to DTH operator Tata Sky on an a la carte basis. Last week, Tata Sky approached TDSAT, after which Sun TV was ordered to provide feeds within three days. That deadline expired on Friday morning. Sun TV now faces TDSAT’s wrath, a penalty and possible ban on all platforms, including CAS and DTH, at the next TDSAT hearing.

Seems like Kalanidhi Maran is now using his power to delay tataksy from getting SUN channels... But then... wht else one can expect from these dirty politicians...

Any how Sun group of channels are not available on Tata Sky. Do you have any idea on Sun network's strategy on this issue.

I read somehwere - maybe Indiantelevision.com - That the Sun is defending its decision by saying that by giving the signals it will violate the terms that it has some production houses which contains a clause that the program can only be shown on cable television & that they may face legal action if they do go ahead & provide it. For details , you can refer the link of indiantelevision.com given in some other topic in this subforum

I read that too. SUN tv are just bullshitting and simply don't want to provide Tata Sky with their channels till they launch their own venture as it will result in tatasky getting more subscribers and sun losing them. I hope that SUN Direct is a massive failure and have no doubt that Mr Maran will make use of his power to save SUN channels from being banned on various platforms.

Today SunTV informed TDSAT that "Justice Mohan Ram of the Madras High Court last Thursday (5 April) stayed the order of the sector tribunal asking Sun TV to stream its signals on an a la carte basis to Tata Sky, at 50 per cent of the cable charges." The next hearing is on 16 April. Let's be sure that Sun TV will not provide signals to TataSky atleast till their DTH service launch. "Oye PAPA they are in ruling power...atleast for this......" :)

Is never happening mate. Sun TV earns close to 500 crores a day, and its never gonna share its feed with anyone other than its own sumangali TV Network.

Tata Sky will not get any share of 500 crores tht SUN Tv earns... They just want to have the feed so tht they can show SUN channels for the south indian subscribers... SUN will be in profit in tataksy show their channels...The only reason SUN is delaying this cos they too will be launching their DTH soon and they want the larger share on market from south...
