MIB warns TV channels, DPOs on multiple uplinking

The Ministry of Information & Broadcasting has cautioned permitted satellite TV channels and teleport operators against using the ‘unfair practise’ of multiple uplinking.

MIB issued an advisory to refrain from unfair practice of multiple uplinking of the permitted channels on multiple frequencies without approval of the government.

“It has been brought to the notice of the Ministry that in order to make their channel to be the most watched channel, some news broadcasters follow unfair practices of uplinking their channels on multiple feed as a result of which it becomes available on multiple LCNs across various distribution platforms,” the advisory said.

It added these malpractises gives an “undue advantage” to TV channels in increasing their viewership.

“In order to ensure that such a scenario do not arise and also to ensure a level playing field, all permitted private satellite TV channels/ broadcasters are hereby advised to refrain from adopting such practices of unauthorized uplinking of their TV channels on multiple frequency without approval of the Ministry” the advisory said.

MIB also exhorted all DPOs to ensure placement of a channel uniquely in the electronic programme guide as per existing rules and regulations.
