DD Freedish Auction Called Off, Private TV Channels To Lose Huge Ad Revenue

Following the decision of the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting (MIB) to withdraw TV channel slot auction process from platform DD-Freedish, private TV channels are bound to lose huge advertisement revenue. It must be mentioned here that most of the big private TV channels have become FTA channels due to the availability of DD-Freedish reach at a nominal fee and as a result there was a sudden increase of their TRPs, directly also boosting their ad revenue. In fact few of private TV channels which are still a pay channel for private DTH platforms and cable operators have become FTA for DD-Freedish.

The last e-auction took place in July, in which DD-Freedish had earned Rs. 85.10 crore and awarded slots to 11 private broadcasters. Another auction scheduled for August was cancelled by the broadcaster, citing “administrative reasons” as per the notice dated 18.8.2017 (see letter).

DD can't share sports feed with private dth or cable:SC

The Supreme Court has said that shared feed of sporting events can only be carried on the terrestrial network of Doordarshan or DD FreeDish.

The judgement would help private broadcasters like Star India from possible losses in subscription and advertising revenues due to sharing of signals with Prasar Bharati which were eventually carried by private DTH and cable operators. Immediately after the judgment became known, DD and PB officials went into a huddle to study the ramifications. A DD official declined to comment.
DD can't share sports feed with private dth or cable:SC

In a significant judgment, a division bench headed by Justice Ranjan Gogoi said that, though the Sports Broadcasting Signals (Mandatory Sharing with Prasar Bharati) Act, 2007, allows the feed of a sporting event of national importance to be shared mandatorily with Prasar Bharati, the public broadcaster cannot utilise it on a notified channel which has to be compulsorily carried by private distribution platforms.
While the judgement enables Prasar Bharati to expropriate the feed, the private sports channels will not be competing against Prasar Bharati on a commercial basis for the same content.
