Indian watchdog proposes IPTV shake-up

India's telecommunications regulator has recommended that internet
protocol television (IPTV) should not fall under cable TV legislation,
clearing the way for telecoms operators to launch IPTV services.

Under India's Cable Television Networks (Regulation) Act of 1995 cable
operators have to adhere to certain technology standards.

The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) said it wanted to
remove that obligation for IPTV operators, as well as the need to ensure
that IPTV set-top boxes can receive free-to-air television channels.
IPTV services will be regulated via telecommunications licences and

Trai's proposal is likely to be resisted by Indian cable operators who
have lobbied to keep IPTV services within the remit of the 1995 Act.
