Star TV brings back old hand for DTH & broadband
(posted on 8 December 10:30 am)
Star TV India is bringing in television industry veteran
Altaf Ali Mohammed to look after its digital platform -
DTH and broadband - in India. Mohammed was earlier looking
after the network's distribution operations in India, west
Asia, and south Asia before the job was handed over to Arun
Mohan, current cable TV distribution head in India.
Star TV has recently taken a 26 per cent equity stake in
one of the three largest cable TV MSOs in the country, Hathway
Cable & Datacom. According to Star TV CEO Peter Mukerjea,
Mohan will continue in his present position increasing penetration
for Star's channel bouquet, while Mohammed will be responsible
for Hathway and broadband properties. In DTH, Mohammed will
be replacing Urmilla Gupta, who recently quit the company.
