Due to unprecedented raids on the cable operators for carrying satellite movie and entertainment channels having Adult content, All Maharashtra cable operators have shut down the channels till further directions from high court. Kindly bear with us. – CODA (Cable Operators Distribution Associations)

This is what I saw when I checked my cable operator’s private channel. All other channels are blacked out, nothing works at all.

Okay, I agree these guys did bad to you people but why block News channels? From where do we check news?

Excerpts from the news report:

The raids are in response to a Bombay High Court order last December which banned TV channels from screening A and U/A rated films.

Police say despite the ban many channels were screening films with adult content and went ahead with the raids.
