Mumbai TV audience suffering

Tuesday, August 22, 2006

It's the second day since Cable operators from Mumbai and and other cities of Maharshtra left TV screens on blink. Cable channels across the city went on the blink, leaving millions of Mumbaikars staring aghast at snow on their TV sets.

It's said that the blackout is to protest raids by the Social Service branch on cable operators in which they sealed the decoders of nine television channels including that. The raids were conducted because cops said cable operators were showing adult films on TV.

But who are suffering between this war, it is the audience. Because Police banned only nine or something channels but cable operators closed broadcasting of all satellite channels living only Doordarshan's channels on live. It is the harassment of viewers who pay regularly to cable operators. By my opinion viewers should not pay whole fees of this month to operators, what you think?
