Prasar Bharati challenges HC order on India-WI series

January 24, 2007 13:03 IST

Prasar Bharati on Wednesday challenged Delhi High Court single bench order of telecasting live the Indo-West Indies cricket series deferred by seven minutes from that being shown on rights holder Nimbus.

The matter was mentioned by Prasar Bharati's counsel Vijay Hansaria before a bench comprising Chief Justice M K Sharma and Justice Sanjive Khanna, seeking simultaneous telecast of the matches.

The counsel pressed for an urgent sharing for today, but the court fixed the matter for hearing on Thursday saying that there is no urgency.

The court had passed the interim order on Tuesday on a petition filed by Nimbus Communication Ltd, suggesting deferred telecast as an interim arrangement to end the fighting between the two broadcasters, which had deprived millions of non-cable viewers of the match action.
