The Telecommunication (Broadcasting and Cable Services) Interconnection (Fourth Amendment) Regulation, 2007 addresses the regulatory provisions on interconnection issues relating to DTH services. In 2001 the Govt. of India issued the DTH guidelines and licensing conditions. Free-to-air DTH services are being offered by Doordarshan. The pay DTH services have been started by two DTH operators. More pay DTH operators are in the process of rolling out their services. The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India, TRAI has issued a new regulation for Direct to Home Broadcasting Services for the welfare of DTH subscribers. By virtue of this new regulation, the DTH Operator now cannot disable the set-top boxes of the subscribers who want to discontinue the DTH service. This regulation will ensure the welfare of the DTH subscribers against the cable operators who charges their clients on the behalf of several schemes and plans without giving them prior information.
