Chennai, Sep 24: Continuing their protest against Sun TV's DTH service, Cable TV operators today observed a fast in all the district headquarters of the state.
Over 50,000 cable operators across the state staged demonstrations and participated in the fast. In the city, the fast was led by Tamizhaga Cable TV Operators General Welfare Association President Shakilan.
He said wherever the SCV control rooms, the cable arm of the Sun TV, were operating, the cable TV operators have decided to set up a parallel control room with immediate effect.
''We will offer cable TV services at Rs 75 and beam 75 channels to the consumers until Arasu Cable TV Corporation comes into being'', he added.
The operators would also stop paying the monthly subscription for the pay channels to the SCV (amounting to Rs 12 crore every month) from October, he added.
