"Remove dead cables or face action" City Mayor Firhad Hakim warns while inaugurating Cable TV Show 2020

Kolkata, Jan 6 (UNI) The 23rd CABLE TV SHOW 2020 Kolkata, one of the largest trade shows on digital cable television & broadband in India, was inaugurated by city mayor Firhad Hakim in presence of numerous representatives of the cable television sector from across India and Saarc countries.

The three-day event is organized by Kolkata-based Cable TV Equipment Traders & Manufacturers Association (CTMA).

“It is my earnest request to all the cable operators, MSOs and CTMA that serious steps must be taken to remove the jungle of dead cables all over the city," Mr Hakim, who also states urban development minister said.
" The state government is spending so much to beautify the city and these cables, which are an eyesore, are spoiling the image of the city and causing trouble to the citizens.
The initiative must be taken by all stakeholders, otherwise Kolkata
Municipal Corporation will take action to remove these dead cables,” said Mr Hakim,

“We fully support the Mayor’s concern. All dead cables must be removed and this would be possible when all the stakeholders – cable operators, MSOs, telecom companies come together to work out a solution in consultation with Kolkata Municipal Corporation,” said Suresh Sethia, a member of the executive committee, Cable Television Equipment & Manufacturer’s Association (CTMA).

“CTMA will extend full support to the Mayor’s concern and reach out to the MSOs and cable operators. The CABLE TV SHOW 2020 is the 23rd Annual B2B Show organized by CTMA. There are 20 pavilions and 100 stalls put up this year for showcasing
a wide range of state-of-the-art products and services related to the cable television industry,” said Pawan Jajodia, Treasurer & Chairman Exhibition, CTMA.

“The Cable TV sector has now completed three decades of operations and there have been rapid strides in technological upgrade and cable television network penetration across India. CATV is now an important aspect of the Internet of Things (IOT). Content is now king and there are many options for its medium of delivery. Cable TV is one such very important medium,” according to CTMS secretary KK Binani.
More than 10,000 cable operators and representatives, traders,
manufacturers, channel partners, distributors, broadcasters and
Multi-System Operators (MSOs) from across India and overseas are expected to visit the CABLE TV SHOW 2020.

The cable television (CATV) sector has reached 150 million homes
across India and West Bengal is estimated to cover 11 million cable homes with 25,000 cable operators.

Currently, of the over 1000 channels, more than 500 television
channels are provided by broadcasters on free to air basis.
“Since the complete digitization of the cable sector, India is set to enter the next era of digital television. The Cable TV Show 2020 will enable the sector to prepare and move ahead in this emerging scenario. CTMA is ready to play its role in smooth conduct of the new regime,” according to CTMA president Rajesh Doshi.
