Jain Studios Ltd chairman Dr J.K. Jain is keen on setting up a DTH platform and would do so, within three months of finding a partner. He disclosed this to CNBC India during an interview.



In a chat with moneycontrol.com, he said that: "Our DTH strategy as we see today is not to serve the interests of satelite channels but for the audiences who need an alternative to the present cable networks both in terms of a better quality and quantity of content. Moreover instead of monopolising the DTH opportunity we wish to act only as a facilitator for everybody who wants to be in the DTH business whether one is a Ku-band transponder owner or one is a satellite channel or a content provider or a member of the audience."



He added that his company would welcome "a 20% foreign partner in our DTH venture. Even in our other projects we keep all our options open."



Jain is believed to be close to the powers that be in the BJP. Additionally, he has in the past talked about setting up an earth station in Delhi. He runs a general entertainment and news channel, is bidding to set up several portals, and is also keen on offering free net access and bandwidth to Indian ISPs.
