MSOs upload their RIO and details as per new tariff norms
Multi System Operator’s (MSOs) under the aegis of All India Digital Cable Federation (AIDCF), yesterday night uploaded their RIO, channel carrying capacity and interconnect agreement on their respective websites. AIDCF, few days back, had advised its member MSOs to upload the same before the deadline set by TRAI. In this digital era, MSOs are now ready to pass on the benefits of the new tariff order to 120 million viewers of TV channels.
The new set of Tariff and Interconnect Regulations issued by TRAI will help in creating a level playing field for all the stakeholders, specially the end viewers who will now have complete freedom at their disposal. It will also help in bringing more transparency and fuel growth by regulating and balancing the entire broadcasting eco-system.
AIDCF, once again requests all the Broadcasters to upload their RIO on their websites without any further ado, as the deadline for the same has already expired.
Mr TS Panesar – President AIDCF, said, “To honour TRAIs deadline and pass on the benefits of new regulations to end viewers, MSOs are fully ready as they have already uploaded their RIO, Channel Carrying Capacity and Interconnect Agreement on their websites. We hope that esteemed Broadcasters would join hands with us and upload their RIO rates ASAP in true spirit of collaboration and indulgence.”
