In September, the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting (MIB) granted a single new license to Mybharat Net Pvt. Ltd bringing the total registered MSOs to 1,478 as of September 30, 2023.
Mybharat Net Pvt. Ltd secured the new license on September 13.
In the same period, a notable development saw nine MSOs voluntarily surrendering their registrations. Among them were Maury Diginet Pvt. Ltd, Paavani Digital Communications, Devi Cable TV Network, Jagiroad Cable Communication, Best TV Digital Network, Ekta Cable Network, Sristi, Vishwadarshan Cable, and Shubh Cable Network. This reshuffling reflects the evolving landscape within the MSO sector. Storyboard18
