A large segment of India cannot afford paid television channels or platforms owned by private broadcasters. With a view to provide access to live broadcast of certain sporting events to a large number of viewers and listeners, the
Sports Broadcasting Signals
(Mandatory Sharing with Prasar Bharati) Act, 2007, (“Sports Act”) was enacted in 2007.

The Act mandated the rights owners to share the live broadcast signals of “sporting events of national importance” with Prasar Bharati; and allowed Prasar Bharati to further retransmit these live signals on a free-to-air basis on its own terrestrial network (transmission through antenna) and DTH network (through its open-access DTH service DD FreeDish).
