India bans Fashion TV for two months

The station that was the talking point among several pay television subscribers in Sri Lanka several months ago has been banned from all Indian pay television networks for a period of two months commencing April 1st.

Fashion TV which was available on all Sri Lankan pay television companies was removed during the course of last year when the authorities expressed their displeasure over this channel being made available in Sri Lanka.

Now India has made the move and the programme in question is "Midnight Hot" which is being telecast over Fashion TV. This ban comes after a ban on AXN India which was lifted on March 1st after they tendered an apology. Several channels have been informed by the Indian Ministry regarding the telecasting of objectionable content and even though the channels have not been named it is said that Zee Cafe is one of them. If these channels do not respond then they may face further action such as the ban imposed on Fashion TV.

However Fashion TV will continue to be available on FTA via satellite.
