Bangalore, Jan 20: Cable operators in Bangalore and Mysore, take note. The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India ( Trai) on Friday has extended the deadline for cable television digitisation in Bangalore and Mysore till January 31, said a Times of India report.

"About one lakh TV screens could have gone blank with the expiry of the December 31 deadline. In order not to inconvenience people, we have given them a transition time of another two weeks,'' Sibichen K Mathew, advisor and head of Karnataka and Kerala region, said on Friday.

The report adds that there is no question of the deadline being extended any further. With the time frame for the third phase of digitisation having expired, nearly 20% TV viewing homes in Bangalore and about 10% in Mysore have not yet installed set-top boxes.
