India - IPTV policy

Indian IPTV policy cleared by the government

The Indian government has now cleared the policy framework for the IPTV which would now enable the companies to launch commercial services.

The government also today announced changes to the current downlinking guidelines for television channels.

Channels would now be allowed to share their feeds with the IPTV service providers.

BSNL and MTNL are two telecom service providers which are already offering IPTV services in the country on a limited scale.

Airtel is also testing IPTV services since a long time now. Reliance is also expected to reveal their plans for IPTV services in the future.

TV viewers would soon have several options to pick from. CAS, Cable and DTH are already widely available in the country.
