TRAI issues regulations for content aggregators

TRAI issues regulations for content aggregators
NEW DELHI: TRAI has today notified amendments to the existing regulatory framework with regard to distribution of TV channels from broadcasters to Distribution Platform Operators (DPOs) viz. Cable, DTH, HITS and IPTV operators.
This has been done to address the market distortions caused because of the present role assumed by the authorised agents (aggregators) of the broadcasters, which were also amply reflected during the Phase I and Phase II of digitisation of cable TV sector. 

The Ministry of Information and Broadcasting (MIB)had also sent a reference to TRAI in this regard, requesting for review of the regulatory framework with regard to the aggregators. These amendments will also contribute to the orderly growth and overall development of the sector by streamlining the distribution of TV channels from broadcasters to DPOs.
