Media Pro slaps legal notice on GTPL link operator for illegal transmission

MUMBAI: Media Pro Enterprise India, the joint venture distribution company between Star Den and Zee Turner, has filed an FIR against Ahmedabad-based Gujarat Telelinks Private Ltd (GTPL) affiliated operator for providing unauthorised analogue signals of its channels.

The company had recently conducted a raid on ‘The Fern’ hotel and discovered that the GTPL affiliated operator was providing unauthorised signals of Media Pro channels at the hotel in Ahmedabad.

As per the terms and conditions of the analogue agreement signed between the GTPL and Media Pro, the MSO and their local cable operators (LCOs) are not authorised to provide analogue signals to commercial establishments unless the broadcaster (Media Pro) provides them with the authorisation.

An FIR has been registered against ‘The Fern‘ hotel manager and LCO Vinod Bhai along with the staff of GTPL at Sola High Court police Station.

Despite legal action, the CEO of ‘The Fern’ has ignored the request from the Media Pro officials to obtain proper authorisation for retransmission of signals in the hotel, the company said in a statement.

A senior official of Media Pro commented, “The increase in piracy of TV signals in Gujarat has increased tremendously. By raising a flag against what GTPL is doing in Ahmedabad, we intent to make the state realise how big the issue of signal piracy in Gujarat actually is. We have been negotiating with the operators to sign the subscription agreement."
