AXN India off air for two months

AXN India which is the Indian feed of Sony's international action channel AXN has been taken off cable television networks in India for telecasting obscene content in a programme titled "The Worlds Sexiest Commercials".

AXN is expected to be off for a period of two months on Indian cable television networks. However this will not have any affect on Sri Lanka since we are getting a different feed of AXN and not the Indian feed. The controversial programme is not being aired on the AXN feed that is being received by local pay television channels. The ban will affect all cable television broadcasters in India only but we are not sure whether Indian DTH providers are also affected by the ban.
