IPTV Roundup: Aksh – Sony Pictures Content; Colors – The New Media Group; BSNL

Aksh Optifibre Gets Sony Pictures Content For VoD
Aksh Optifibre, one of the IPTV franchisees for India (alongwith Smart Broadband, Time Broadband and IOL Netcom) has signed a 3 year deal with Sony Pictures Entertainment for Hollywood movies for their Aksh’s video on demand platform iControl. Aksh powers BSNL services in 20 cities across north India, and IPTV in Delhi and Mumbai. The problem that we’ve identified is, that the other IPTV service providers are also operational in the broadly the same zones. [via TelevisionPoint]

Colors On IPTV In Japan, Korea, Taiwan And Australia
This landmark carriage agreement represents the first ever global launch of a major entertainment channel on IPTV as customers across the globe shall be able to preview COLORS for 1 week at no cost, courtesy Viacom 18 and World On-Demand. The channel will be free for a week, and will be distributed across TNMGs network in Japan, Korea, Taiwan and Australia. TNMG had launched UTV channels in the same markets a couple of months ago. [via release]

BSNL continues with announcing rollouts in separate cities – in Lucknow on October 15, Nagpur by November, and Nashik by Diwali. The service has recently been launched in Pune. Why can’t they prepare the infra in each city for a launch, and do a national rollout, instead of launches city-by-city?
