Issuing of public notices by companies, be it broadcasters or distribution platform (DTH operator or MSO), is getting common. In a fresh spat, a public notice has been issued by Star India which informs its viewers that they will not be able to watch the network’s channels on Hathway Cable and Datacom.
In the notice published in leading newspapers of Delhi NCR, the broadcaster has said that the consumers in the DAS notified areas of Delhi, Faridabad, Ghaziabad and Agra will not get the signals of the Star India channels.“The signals are likely to be disconnected after three weeks from today by Star India to Hathway New Delhi, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh,” states the notice.
The reasons for deactivation as cited in the notice are: non-signing of subscription agreement; non-submission of subscriber report and non-payment of outstanding subscription fees.
With this, all the DAS areas serviced by Hathway and its franchisees will get affected.
