Netflix, iFlix, Hooq, Disney, and Fox, among others, announced that they had created a self-regulatory content code in June. Casbaa, a union of Asian video companies (including broadcasters and streaming companies), said that this code would make sure that content on these platforms would be “authentic, free from hate speech, hate crimes, pornography, and other forms of inappropriate content”. Casbaa said that this would “serve to distinguish legitimate services from pirate sites”. Even so, a bonus that this code gives streaming services more grounds in arguing against further regulations. This is especially important in a conservative content market like Asia.
The code is not available publicly.

However, Irani was replaced by Rajyavardhan Rathore, her deputy, in May. Over a month after the committee created under Irani was notified, it hadn’t met.
