Doordarshan to continue telecasting cricket World Cup matches involving India

The Supreme Court also asked Star TV to indicate the quantum of advertisement revenue it was losing on account of Doordarshan relaying its live feed on the World Cup cricket matches through cable operators

 

Cricket fans across India will continue to view the Cricket World Cup matches involving the country on state-run Doordarshan's national channel. The Supreme Court on Tuesday extended its interim order for telecast of the matches on DD National.
 
The apex court also asked Prasar Bharati to respond to Star TV's suggestion to create a separate channel to carry the live feed of cricket matches provided by it.
 
The court earlier stayed the Delhi High Court order that barred Doordarshan from sharing the live feed of the cricket matches with the cable operators, provided to it by Star TV.
 
The Delhi High Court 4th February had barred Doordarshan from sharing the live feed.
 
The apex court bench, headed by Justice Ranjan Gogoi, while directing a further hearing of the matter Thursday, asked Star to indicate the quantum of advertisement revenue it was losing on account of Doordarshan relaying its live feed on the Cup matches through cable operators.

If we were to think that our cricket teams sponsorship has gone into safe hands we are very wrong. Among the conditions for sponsorship are Star retaining all rights to publishing cricket scores in any digital medium. This means a monopoly for ESPNCricinfo.

Doordarshan should be give an ad free feed not just for India matches but for the entire world cup given the cricket craze. Telecast of Star is not actually live, it is a few seconds behind comapred to DD's feed.

We are listening!
