State-owned Arasu Cable TV Corporation has switched on mediapro channels after reaching an agreement with mediapro, the details of which are yet to be disclosed. Earlier they had disconnected the channels due to breach of letter of acceptance and non-conclusion of price negotiation. Arasu had demanded a 50 per cent reduction in subscription fee from Media Pro, which they had denied earlier.
Meanwhile Arasu has switched off Ten Sports and all the Sony channels falling under Sony bouquet.
Arasu provides cable TV services at Rs. 70 per month and enjoys a subscriber base of 6.21 million across Tamilnadu. It has an operator base of 24,619 spread across the state. Arasu provides around 100 channels that include free-to-air (FTA) channels, pay channels and local cable channels.
