IndiaCast UTV withdraws application against Dish TV in TDSAT

The application was filed by IndiaCast UTV on the apprehension that the order passed on December 19, 2013 by the Tribunal will not be complied with

dish-tv-indiacastIndiaCast UTV filed a contempt application before TDSAT against Dish TV on the apprehension that the order passed on December 19, 2013 by the Tribunal will not be complied with and that 22 channels will continue to be available in the packages even after 31.12.2013.

During the course of the hearing, the Tribunal observed that the application was premature since the provisioning of IndiaCast channels on ala carte basis would be done by Dish TV only on 01.01.2014 and the scroll of Dish TV was clear in this regard.

Upon the observation made by the Tribunal, IndiaCast voluntarily withdrew the application filed by it.

In its order passed on December 31, 2013, TDSAT said that the application was filed by IndiaCast UTV on the apprehension that the order passed on December 19, 2013 by this Tribunal will not be complied with and that 22 channels will continue to be available in the packages even after 31.12.2013. “During the course of hearing the counsels, Gopal Jain, counsel appearing for the IndiaCast UTV, stated that he does not wish to press the application at this stage and is accordingly allowed to withdraw the same. This application is dismissed as withdrawn,” ruled the Tribunal.

TDSAT had earlier said in its order on December 19, 2013, “Dish TV will have to offer IndiaCast UTV channels on reference interconnect offer (RIO) terms and on a la carte basis. Dish TV was ordered to modify the scroll advertising its ‘on request’ offer saying the IndiaCast UTV channels are available on a la carte basis. At the same time, the tribunal ordered IndiaCast UTV to stop running the advertisement against Dish TV.”
