TataSky, Discovery carriage spat

October 14, 2015

India’s Tata-Sky DTH pay-TV broadcaster has issued an ultimatum to Discovery Communications India over the failure to renew a carriage agreement which expired on August 1st.

Discovery, and Tata-Sky’s viewers, has been warned that most of Discovery’s portfolio of channels will go dark within 21 days unless the two re-agree terms.  Evidently the warning does not include Discovery Channel itself.

Meanwhile, Discovery itself has complained that four MSO’s in and around Mumbai have not paid outstanding carriage fees to Discovery.
