Any update on NDTV Imagine? Now that april has come...



NDTV Imagine on HindiDirect Ch. 20xx....oh wait a minute, still up there :nono2:

NEW DELHI: The US has asked India to ease its television downlink policy for international content providers, who need to set up an office in the country or operate through a local agent -- a process which makes their operations taxable here.

The US has been raising the issue with the Indian Government through different channels, including the high level bilateral Trade Policy Forum, saying the present downlink policy in India is "overly burdensome and results in a taxable presence" to foreign content providers.

It said the India can oversee the programming content, if it so desires, through its licensed entities like cable operators or direct-to-home providers without requiring them to open office in the country.

"The United States continues to raise this issue with the Indian Government and the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting," an official said.

In November 2005, the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting had issued a 'Downlink Policy' which applies to international content providers wanting to downlink programming to India. Despite opposition from the global firms, the ministry ruled out any change in the policy in February this year asking them to amend their agreements with the Indian customers making the tax liabilities retrospective in nature from November 11, 2005.

This has upset the US which has started exerting pressure on the government to change the policy, the official said.

None I have given up. I was thinking Dishnetwork is advertising the mega pack for 15 dollars for first three months. Do you think they would add any south asian channels now.?
Ndtv told me the platforms are really giving them a hard time to carry the channels.

Digital transition? contract dispute? signal problems due to the Monsoon returning? I guess DD India should remain FTA on DirecTV. In my opinon The two channels 9X should go to DISH Network and NDTV Imagine should go to DirecTV.

Concrap hasn't distribute the STAR channels. Enough news from Concrap. :nono:
