ESPN Star Sports channels back on Digicable after 4 months

ESPN Star Sports and Digicable Network (India) have sorted out their commercial disputes, ending a four-month blackout of the three sports channels on the pan-India cable network ahead of the T20 World Cup that kicks off today.

The channels – ESPN, Star Sports and Star Cricket – were off Digicable’s network due to billing, payment and a host of other issues.

“We had some commercial disputes with ESS and had shut out the channels across all our cable TV networks. But we have resolved them amicably and the channels are back again,” Digicable joint MD Yogesh Shah told Us

ESS has some hot properties during the course of the year including the T20 World Cup, soccer World Cup, Champions League and ICC World Cup, an so Star didn’t have much options rather than to surrender.
