IPL 2018: Doordarshan to broadcast Indian Premier League 2018 matches
The feed will be delayed by one hour after Star India.
According to the new IPL media rights agreement, Doordarshan will share the rights with Star and will broadcast select matches.
According to several reports, there will be 50:50 revenue sharing between Star India and Doordarshan for the broadcast of IPL 2018.
With the tournament just two days away, the IPL is still awaiting a mandatory uplink permit from the government.
The BCCI has sent a letter to the Information and Broadcasting ministry with an emergency request to grant them the requisite permission.
“We’re given to understand that the permission has not been granted yet. Given that we’re close to the event, we request your kind intervention in ensuring that the permission is granted urgently to ensure that our Indian audiences are able to view and enjoy the event and to prevent significant commercial losses to the parties involved,” BCCI acting Secretary Amitabh Choudhary writes in his letter accessed by India Today
