Reliance Jio Infocomm has applied for pan India Cable MSO (Multi-System Operator) license. It is expected to receive a pan India MSO license this financial year (2014-15). MSO stands for Multiple System Operator. MSO is the industry term for “Cable Company”.
Each cable TV installation serving a community is known as a “cable system”, and the operator of the system is called the “system operator”. Most system operators run cable systems in more than one community. Therefore, the vast majority of them are Multiple System Operators.
