Many cable TV operators arrested

Ever since Kalaignar TV launched over a week back, there’s a debate in every tea shop in the city over what kind of impact it will have on politics, TV viewership, Sun TV and media in general. There’s also debate over whether it’s right for the government to enter the cable TV business. To make matters exciting Sun TV also launched its DTH service, amidst much protest. At 75 bucks, the service is cheap for sure, but does not have many good TV channels. The issue is becoming controversial. Many of the major leaders have reacted against the government entering the cable TV business.
Meanwhile, many cable TV operators across the state have been arrested. Vaiko, the DMDK leader, has condemned the arrest. (More)

    I fail to understand Why few cities including chennai are treated as guinea pigs for tying out new ways of broadcasting television. If a guy in perungalathur can watch all channels….a guy from tambaram cannot.. just coz tabaram falls in limit…
    Why cant these so called parties call a strike. or stage a dharna.. how long can we digest this
