This chapter describes the unique market structure of cable TV services and the success or otherwise of the Conditional Access System (CAS) to bring in transparency in cable provisioning. The alternatives to cable TV services, namely, direct-to-home (DTH) and the recent advancements in other digital cable distribution services along with their regulatory implications are also reported. The CAS introduced addressability in the cable TV network along with providing signals in digital format. Provisioning of interoperable Set-Top Boxes (STBs) has not been successful in India. Its radio coverage is available in amplitude modulation (AM), and frequency modulation (FM) modes. With the guidelines for DTH and Head-end in the Sky (HITS) allowed, the industry is all set to witness a revolution in digital broadcasting services in the years to come.

Keywords:   cable TV services, Conditional Access System, digital broadcasting, cable provisioning, direct-to-home, India, frequency modulation, Head-end in the Sky
