Chennai: Thousands of cable television operators from across the State observed a fast in the city on Tuesday asking the government to end the monopoly of Sun Network and revamp Arasu Cable TV Corporation at the earliest.
In a memorandum, the Thamizhaga Cable TV Operators General Welfare Association (TCOA) has asked the government to reinstall the four digital head-ends set up by the previous government in Tirunelveli, Thanjavur, Coimbatore and Vellore immediately.
The operators urged the government to use the existing cable TV operators network to roll out Arasu Cable TV services at the earliest and start a discussion with pay channels without which the scheme of providing quality content could not be successful as the end users would not be satisfied with free-to-air channels alone.
Asking the government to act as a Multi System Operator (MSO) in the rest of the State immediately, the cable operators asked the government to apply for MSO licence with the Centre for Chennai which was under the CAS area if the previous government had not already obtained it.
