MUMBAI: Viacom18 and TV18’s distribution arm IndiaCast has issued a disconnection notice to direct-to-home operator (DTH) Independent TV (Reliance Big TV) over non-payment of subscription fees.

IndiaCast, which also distributes Eenadu Television channels in India barring the states of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, intends to yank off all its channels from the operator within three weeks of the notice, which has been published in a Hindi daily.

“This is to inform all the subscribers of Reliance Big TV/Independent TV that some or all channels of Viacom18 and ETV Network will be shut down after 3 weeks starting from the issue date of public notice because of unpaid dues,” the notice says.

In case the two parties fail to resolve the dispute, Independent TV consumers could miss out on channels like ETV, ETV Plus, ETV, Life, ETV Cinema, ETV Abhiruchi, ETV Telangana and ETV Andhra Pradesh, CNBC TV18, CNBC Awaaz, CNN News18, News18 India, News18 Tamil Nadu, News18 Lokmat, History channel, FYI TV18, News18 Kerala, MTV, Colors, Rishtey, Nick, Vh1, Sonic, Comedy Central, Colors Infinity, MTV Beats, Rishtey Cineplex, Colors Super, Colors HD, MTV Beats HD, Colors Gujarati, Colors Marathi, Colors Bangla, Colors Kannada, Colors Odia, News18 Uttar Pradesh Uttaranchal, News18 MP Chhattisgarh, News18 Rajasthan, News18 Urdu, News18 Bihar Jharkhand, News18 Kannada and Colors Tamil.

In accordance with the TRAI’s tariff order, IndiaCast recently bundled the networks’ 57 channels (42 SD and 15 HD) in three packs - budget, value and family. The networks have also introduced 10 channel bundles, in SD and HD versions, mapped to its markets (Hindi, North East, Kerala, Karnataka, Gujarat, Bengal, Maharashtra, Orissa, Telugu and Tamil) to allow the consumer to choose from.
