New Delhi, Feb 17:
Cricket fans across the country will continue to view the World Cup matches involving India on public broadcaster Doordarshan’s national channel as the Supreme Court Tuesday extended its interim order for telecast of the matches on the channel.
The court also asked Prasar Bharati to respond to Star TV’s suggestion to create a separate channel to carry the live feed of cricket matches provided by it.
The court earlier stayed the Delhi High Court order that barred Doordarshan from sharing the live feed of the Cup matches with the cable operators, provided to it by Star TV, Feb 10.
The Delhi High Court Feb 4 had barred Doordarshan from sharing the live feed.
The apex court bench, headed by Justice Ranjan Gogoi, while directing a further hearing of the matter Thursday, asked Star to indicate the quantum of advertisement revenue it was losing on account of Doordarshan relaying its live feed on the Cup matches through cable operators. IANS
