NEW DELHI: The scepticism surrounding digitisation figures
notwithstanding, the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting
Friday claimed that the digital cable penetration has increased
to 81 per cent up from 77 per cent that it had announced earlier
MIB said that the digitisation penetration will be 87 per
cent if the progress made by DTH is also taken into account.
The DTH operators have informed MIB that 2.7 million set-top
boxes (STBs) have been installed in the four metro cities
of Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata and Chennai.
