A new digital cable TV federation to replace MSO Alliance, a good move?

By October 24th, 2014 AT 4:41 PM

Leading national and state level cable operators have merged to form an union federation, All India Digital Cable Federation (AIDCF). Leading cable operators who had users more than a lakh were invited at this meeting where they introduced this Federation. With the formation of AIDCF, the Multi-System Operators (MSO) Alliance comprising the five national MSOs has been dissolved. VD Wadhwa, CEO of Siti Cable was unanimously elected as the president of AIDCF.

All MSOs who have a digital cable TV subscriber base of one lakh and who are following TRAI quality of service (QoS) were invited to this meeting where the industry would speak in common and work together.The main purpose of this federation was the growth and digitisation of Cable TV along with interest in both Broadband and other value added services.

As a united federation, they will be the voice of Indian Cable Industry and will discuss the issues and the meetings with other ministers, service providers and other financial institutions.

It has to be implemented immediately. When set top box were introduced the Government said it will provide beat quality with reasonable price but the cost has gone up without much increase in quality. Earlier the monthly bill was 250 to 300 rupees for over 100 channels, including all popular channels. But now for the same you need to pay over 400 to 500 rupees per month. Further it was promised that for Rs. 100 per month we can watch 70 free channels. But no service provider gives you this tariff. So introduce portability immediately.


A gang of thieves is the more accurate description. Far from adhering to any quality of service standards, for which TRAI releases no real valuable data, MSOs are a bunch of scum that need to be given a kick on their behinds and some competition ignited.
