IPL 2018: STAR India may be asked to share live cricket feed with Doordarshan

If the government has its way, the next season of Indian Premier League T20 cricket tournament will be available to viewers on state-run broadcaster Doordarshan.

The information and broadcasting (I&B) ministry is working on a proposal to make live IPL matches available on Doordarshan and has asked the sports ministry to weigh in on the matter, three people in the know said on condition of anonymity. No orders have been passed on the proposal yet.

The move will mean that Star India Pvt Ltd, the official broadcasters of IPL for the next five seasons beginning 2018, will have to share the live cricket feed with Prasar Bharati under the Sports Broadcasting Signals (Mandatory Sharing with Prasar Bharati) Act, 2007. Prasar Bharati runs Doordarshan and All India Radio.
