Telecast on! Ten Sports to give feed to DD

TV channel Ten Sports on Friday agreed to provide live telecast feed to Doordarshan and all cable TV operators free of cost for the one-day international cricket match between India and Pakistan on Saturday.

Ten Sports gave an undertaking to the Supreme Court saying that it will provide the television feed to Doordarshan, but only for Saturday's game.

A three-judge bench headed by Supreme Court Chief Justice V N Khare heard the matter at his residence and recorded the undertaking of Ten Sports.

The matter will come up for hearing before a full bench of the Supreme Court on Monday.

Kapil Sibal was the counsel for Ten Sports.

The Supreme Court restrained all other courts in the country from entertaining any petition on the issue. The court took the petition for hearing and issued notice to Prasar Bharati.

For Prasar Bharati, Attorney General Soli Sorabjee and Solicitor General Kirit Rawal appeared before the court and said non-distribution of live telecast of the one-day international match on Saturday through Doordarshan would deprive millions of people from watching the match live.
