Government Moves To Block ABS Free Dish DTH Service Soon

As you know ABS satellite is broadcasting free-to-air TV channels from ABS2 satellite at 74.9 east position. ABS2 is broadcasting high numbers of regional TV channels then DD free dish.

Now Government of India has decided to block its signals in India because it is not applied for DTH license from MIB. Yes it is okay, ABS2 should apply for DTH license before distributing its signals and TV contents in India.

But now thousands of rural area household are using it because ABS satellite is broadcasting mainly regional TV channel from South and East India which is unavailable in DD Freedish dth.

Did you think why regional TV channels not participating in DD Freedish e-auction?? I think due its yearly subscription fees because regional TV channels are limited to state borders or on its local language. These TV channels are not earning too much as national channels so maybe they are not able to pay DD Free dish annual subscription; which is growing every year and in every e-auctions. Now its bidding price has been reached from 1 Crore to 8 Crore per annually.
Government Moves To Block ABS Free Dish DTH Service Soon

And in other side lots of C-Band satellites coverage available in Indian beam and all are broadcasting many foreign TV channels.
In recent years Government has banned Madani Channel, Peace TV, Saudi TV, QTV, P TV, Geo TV because these channels are broadcasting hate speeches in Indian beams. Here banned means no any cable / DTH operators allow to distribute these channels over the cable network. But still lots of Indian families are watching these channels by using internet & C-Band dish antenna.
It was also not clear whether anyone found watching these channels using a C-Band dish antenna or internet could be prosecuted under Indian laws.

So I think blocking the signal of ABS2 signals across India, it may be difficult for DoS (Department of Space) as it would require very advanced technology. Government should find a middle way for extra option in FTA TV.

So if ABS2 satellite agrees to take license from MIB then it is better options for rural India because they may have options in FTA TV. At this time only public broadcaster DD Freedish are available for FTA broadcasting. But DD Freedish not has good numbers in regional TV channels.

so let’s see what happens but I think there should be an extra option for FTA TV channels for rural and poor families because if PAY TV have 6 DTH operators then why FTA TV only one ? And everybody knows that FTA TV (DTH) has lots of views then Pay TV (DTH).

ABS Satellite partners PT Sarana Media to launch Indonesian FreeViews DTH platform

MACAU – Tuesday 8th Nov 2016 : Leading satellite operator ABS has announced today that it will partner with PT Sarana Media Vision (SMV), using SMV’s DTH license to launch a consumer FreeView satellite service – FreeViewSat – across Indonesia in January 2017.  The service will be called SMV FreeViewSat and will initially broadcast over 60 television channels via the ABS-2, ABS-2A and ABS-6 satellites in both Ku and C-band.

For the first time in Indonesia, a free-to-view platform will be available throughout the entire country, allowing advertisers the opportunity to reach the full potential of the Indonesian audience.

The FreeViewSat model will promote maximum distribution and the cost of the STB & dish will be less than US$35.  Customer will only need to make this one-time purchase to enjoy all the TV channels on the platform (with no monthly recurring subscription fees).

Tom Choi, CEO of ABS commented that “SMV’s FreeViewSat will be very attractive for Indonesia by providing great quality international and unique domestic programming to the entire country.  The goal is to deliver high quality entertainment and educational content affordably to all.  For the first time, everybody, not only the affluent or those in the urban areas, will be able to receive high quality programming for free, with just a one-time purchase of a set-top box and dish.  FreeViewSat will also give advertisers the first real opportunity to reach the whole population of Indonesia, even in rural areas. ABS is delighted to be partnering and supporting this worthwhile venture.’’

At launch in January, FreeViewSat will carry at least 30 local Free-to-Air channels and more than 30 high quality international channels.   The number of channels will continue to grow to over 100 channels in the first 6 to 12 months as new and interesting content is added.

FreeViewSat will be available via 75cm Ku band dishes from 75E on ABS-2 and ABS-2A, and via 1.6m C-band antennas from 159E on ABS-6 simultaneously, so that consumers have the choice of small dishes, or larger ones with better rain protection. Since Indonesia already has over 10 million C-band antennas installed, the adoption rate is expected to be rapid.

ABS has selected the ABV conditional access and middleware system, along with Ali chips for its Set-Top Boxes.

Confirmed channels for launch include:
TV9 Nusantara, TVRI Nasional, DAAI TV, TV One, ANTV, Metro TV, Trans 7, Trans TV, SCTV, Indosair, Kompas TV, Net TV, Bali TV.

H2, Bloomberg TV, France 24, Fix and Foxi Channel, Action Hollywood Movies, Pulse TV, Al Jazeera English, CCTV-News, CCTV-4, CCTV-9, Russia Today, MediaCorp Channel, Landscape HD, TRACE Urban and TRACE Sports Stars, B4U Music, B4U Movies, NDTV 247 and NDTV Good Times, and many more.
