Cable TV technology has become more advanced since the law was enacted, Coab demanded

Cable TV operators have demanded making the "Bangladesh Cable Television Network Act 2006" a time-befitting one through necessary amendments.

Cable Operators' Association of Bangladesh (Coab) made the demand at a press conference at the Jatiya Press Club, reports UNB. 

They alleged that they are being "harassed" in the name of mobile court drives conducted under the law, and demanded authorities put the mobile court drives on hold – until their demand is met.

Coab President SM Anwar Parvez said: "The law is not a time-befitting one under the current circumstances. Cable TV technology has become more advanced since the law was enacted."

He also said they have been demanding amendments to the law for a long time. "But the law was not amended; rather, the authorities continued conducting mobile court drives under the same law."

Coab's other demands included declaring cable television network sector as an industry and lifting duty on importing equipment necessary for running cable TV networks.
