Indian channels like Star blacked out in Bangladesh

Tuesday, 10 Nov, 5.29 pm

Indian pay channels, specially those belonging to the Star group, have been blacked out by cable operators in Bangladesh since Nov 4.

Users complain that they have paid for these channels but not received their signal because of the boycott by Bangladesh cable operators spearheaded by Anwar Parvez.

The cable operators have been refusing to pay their huge dues to the pay channel provider Jadoo Vision Ltd, but they have already collected full payment from the clients nationwide.

Parvez has also threatened Kunal Deshmukhya, an Indian national and the chief executive officer (CEO) of Jadoo Vision, which provides more than 280 channels in the country.
