Policy Roundtable

CASBAA’s Policy Roundtable Executive Session takes place every year at the time of the CASBAA Convention. This year, regulators from 10 Asian countries and regions met with industry policy leaders for a discussion of the challenges of regulating and growing an industry that is in full technological and commercial transformation. Korea’s KCC Chairman Choi Sung-Joon, US FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai and India’s TRAI Chairman R.S. Sharma exchanged views on how OTT regulation and net neutrality issues are being handled in their various countries. CASBAA presented its latest survey of pay-TV and OTT rules in Asia, which pointed out that some countries are vastly overregulating pay-TV, compared to the very light touch on OTT. CASBAA members can view the presentations and prepared texts here. (Member login required.)
