Update 2: Several reports of other channels being blocked as well as one unconfirmed report of Tata Sky blocking NDTV – this would be DTH. Update 3: North Delhi SITI set top box user reports all channels working. Update 4: Another user reports that cable operators have been instructed to not broadcast NDTV till the 7th. Awaiting information on the source of this update.
No official order to block NDTV & few othr channels. Few Pro-BJP Cable networks has blocked NDTV Hindi & ABPNews after PM's 'Bazaaru' remark— BJP Insider (@11AshokaRoad) February 4, 2015
Update 5: TATA Sky showing all channels in Lajpat Nagar and probably several other places going by tweets without locations. Update 6: Several people reported that DEN Network seems to have removed NDTV from its channel search list as well – this probably means that this is not a technical failure (as some BJP supporters are attempting to suggest) but a deliberate removal. Update 7: no further reports of NDTV being off air. No reports of NDTV being available where it was blocked either. Perhaps the morning will bring more clarity. Update 8: Sreenivasan Jain tweeted “We are looking into complaints of NDTV not being available in parts of Delhi.
Now confirmed that Cable Operators have been told not to show NDTV till 7th Feb..!! #SaveDemocracy— Kumar Amit (@Ikumar7) February 4, 2015
CCN DEN appears to be showing NDTV but not Total TV and NewsX in East Delhi. However other areas like Vikaspuri still reporting DEN blocking NDTV. One user reports that he called them up and they say they have orders.
