The Indian telecom regulator TRAI has initiated a consultation process to seek operators' views before issuing guidelines for mobile TV services. The Government will also issue a regulatory framework for mobile TV.
Based on comments from the industry, Trai will issue recommendations on issues relating to mobile television services. The guidelines will be on international practice, eligibility criteria, net worth requirement, foreign direct and indirect investment levels, technology, revenue sharing, entry fees, bank guarantee, spectrum and facilities to be offered by service providers. A joint group of ministers will study the recommendations before releasing the final set of regulations.
