India is home to more than 800 television channels with 140 million homes that have paid TV as well as a film industry that produces more than 1,000 movies in a year. The Committee aims to create direct links between Indian and American businesses and government leaders with the ultimate goal of creating a $100 billion media and entertainment industry by 2020.
With the goal of digitizing approximately 85 million cable television homes, the market for content creators, channels, software technology firms, and information technology providers offers unprecedented opportunity. The Council supports TRAI’s and the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting’s digitization plan and also supports policies that will allow content exclusivity in order to reflect the dynamism of today’s market economy.
