MediaNama invites subscribers to attend its briefing call on the Broadcasting Bill and online streaming. Subscribers will receive an invite. Subscribe here to be eligible to attend. On November 10, the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting (MIB) released a draft for the Broadcasting Services Regulation Bill, 2023. This bill is set to replace the Cable Television Networks (Regulation) Act of 1995 which has been in place for the past three decades. With the new bill, over-the-top (OTT) broadcasting services (like Disney+ Hotstar, Netflix, JioCinema, etc.) will also be brought under regulation. They will be required to ensure that their content is certified by a content evaluation committee, and will have to comply with a multi-layered regulatory system. In this MediaNama Briefing, we will delve deep into the bill, how it affects streaming services, and the concerns surrounding it.
