TRAI chairman Nripendra Misra confirmed: “Several telecom operators providing IPTV services or planning to do so have approached us on this issue. They have said that since IPTV is an addressable platform to deliver content just like DTH, we should have similar regulations here too with regard to fixing of channel prices.”
