HC defers Cable TV digitization till 5th Nov in Chennai

The Madras high court has put on hold the process of digitization of television signals in Chennai till 5 November.

Chennai cable operators filed a case in the Madras high court for an extension of the 31 October digitization deadline because of non-availability of set-top boxes.
The Union government had insisted on the October deadline for Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata and Chennai after the earlier deadline of 30 June was extended as the cities were unprepared.
Madras high court judge Paul Vasantha Kumar in an interim order on Wednesday directed the information and broadcasting ministry to extend the digitization deadline in Chennai till 5 November, said J. Srinivasa Mohan, counsel for the cable operators.
“In a hearing today, the court has put on hold the digitization till the next hearing,” said M.R. Srinivasan, general secretary of the Chennai Metro Cable TV Operators Association (CMCOA). The group has 1,800 cable operators under its fold.
“The next hearing is on 5 November; this comes as a relief to us,” Srinivasan said.
