MUMBAI: Star India’s incentives on its various channels on RIO has not gone down well with several MSOs in the country, who feel that this will actually raise consumer bills rather than make it easier, despite being on a-la-carte. However, the DTH industry sees a prized opportunity in the whole matter.

Videocon d2h has taken out ads in several markets, concentrating in the east of the country, asking consumers to shift from cable to DTH. The ad asks consumers if they are ‘missing their favourite Star channels on your cable connection’ and if so then they should switch to Videocon d2h. The ad also lists the channels that the viewers can watch uninterrupted - Star Jalsha, Jalsha Movies, Star Plus, Life Ok, Star Sports, Star Gold, NGC, Star Movies, Star World etc.

The ad also points out that viewers can avail 24 Bengali channels on the platform.

Last week, Star India had come up with a new RIO agreement that it will be enforcing with MSOs across the country. According to Telecom Disputes Settlement Appellate Tribunal (TDSAT), the last date for undertaking the RIO will be 10 November after which the broadcaster can disconnect signals to MSOs.

The network claims that up to now, nearly 33 per cent of independent MSOs have come forward to sign the RIO.
