IndusInd Media & Communication Ltd (IMCL), a Hinduja Group subsidiary, continues to make inroads into India’s rural areas through its head-end-in-the-sky (HITS) platform. IMCL is the only digital platform operator (DPO) to cover all 29 states and 4 union territories. This is due to major penetration in the past 12 months utilising NXT Digital’s HITS platform.

The company feels that there is scope for deployment for DPO to an additional 30 million homes in the rural universe of 99 million homes. Another 20 million homes await power to households and will begin to watch television in the next three years.
