TRAI Digitized TV Deadline Ends Today

The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) deadline for changing to digitized TV ends on Tuesday. All those with cable connections might face a blackout after Tuesday. Cable operators were believed to file customer details and their selection of television channels with the TRAI board by Tuesday. However, cable operators have required an extension from the government. Digitization of the cable services in the whole nation by December 2014 was one of the tasks that the Information and Broadcasting Ministry had set for itself and the first step towards attaining this goal was its completion in Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata and Chennai by June 30, 2012. Installing set-top boxes (STBs) in every cable viewing household is a prerequisite for digitization. While in some cities installation of STBs was less than preferred, official sources had said that they anticipated the figure to get better as it was observed during the first phase of digitization. Following the completion of the second phase of digitization, I&B Ministry would now focus on the third phase. The third phase of digitization has to be executed in all other urban areas (municipal corporations/municipalities) except cities or towns or areas incorporated in the Phase I and II by September 30, 2014. Under Phase IV, the digitization procedure will cover rest of the nation by end of 2014.
