The court earlier stayed the Delhi High Court order that barred Doordarshan from sharing the live feed of the Cup matches with the cable operators, provided to it by Star TV, Feb 10.

The Delhi High Court Feb 4 had barred Doordarshan from sharing the live feed.

The apex court bench, headed by Justice Ranjan Gogoi, while directing a further hearing of the matter Thursday, asked Star to indicate the quantum of advertisement revenue it was losing on account of Doordarshan relaying its live feed on the Cup matches through cable operators.
