Hindustan Times (Lucknow) - - Spotlight -

LUC­KNOW: A lead­ing TV ca­ble op­er­a­tor has said those in the trade are se­ri­ously think­ing of a statewide black­out of ca­ble TV pro­grammes on Fe­bru­ary 21 and 22 dur­ing the in­vestors sum­mit in the state cap­i­tal if they are not al­lowed to use elec­tric­ity and street light poles for their wires. Su­nil Jolly of Den net­work says, “We humbly want to say that pulling down of ca­bles by the dis­trict ad­min­is­tra­tion has hurt the ca­ble busi­ness. We have in­curred a loss of Rs 10 crore. Be­sides, one lakh house­holds will not pay us be­cause they will not re­ceive the ca­ble trans­mis­sion till the lines are re­stored.”

There is a ca­ble TV black­out in over one lakh houses of the city. Ca­ble trans­mis­sion is also dis­turbed in 22 other cities of the state be­cause our wires have been cut by the dis­trict ad­min­is­tra­tion with­out any prior no­tice SU­NIL JOLLY, di­rec­tor of the Den net­work
