The row was triggered by the decision of ESPN to increase the tariff from Rs. 32 to Rs.39. A press note issued by Asianet Satcom here today said ESPN had imposed a 346 per cent increase in tariff over the last three years.
Our Staff Reporter adds from Kochi: The ESPN Software India Pvt. Ltd (ESPN) had cut off signals of both the channels, asserting that the cable operator owed it dues amounting to Rs. 4 crores. However, during discussions between the company and Asianet representatives, an agreement had been reached regarding the new contract between the two. Asianet's last annual contract with ESPN had come to an end on November 30. Following this, transmission of the two channels would be resumed on Thursday night itself, Mr. Rajesh Kaul, director, Affiliate Sales, ESPN Software India Pvt. Ltd, told The Hindu.
