Doordarshan to be available on all India’s DTH & cable platforms

The carriage of channels from India’s public television broadcaster Doordarshan (DD) will become mandatory on every direct-to-home (DTH) satellite and cable network, according to Information and Broadcasting Minister Prakash Javadekar.

Javadekar told journalists in Ahmedabad: “We are taking steps to make Doordarshan channels available in all cable TV as well as direct to home platforms.”

He said he had held a meeting with officials and “asked them to come with ideas to improve the content of DD and AIR” [All India Radio].

“To do that, we have decided to invite suggestions from people about what they would like to watch and listen,” the Jagran Post reported.
