Commonwealth Games broadcasting rights by 10-Oct

With Commonwealth Games just a year away, the organizers will finalise a broadcaster within 15 days which will telecast the event for it on High Definition (HD) mode.

Prasar Bharati, the host broadcaster for the 2010 Games, had called for bids from international broadcasters to telecast the event earlier this year.

From these, it had shortlisted five companies in July, that had the experience of telecasting sporting events of such magnitude.

These were Swiss-based International Games Broadcast Services, Satellite Information Service Live (UK), Nimbus Sports International Pvt Ltd (Singapore), Nimbus Communications Ltd (Mumbai) in collaboration with Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, and Big Productions of Anil Dhirubhai Ambani group.

Doordarshan sources said that with the World Broadcasters Summit scheduled to be held in Delhi on October 26, Prasar Bharati wants to finalise one broadcaster from the shortlisted five within 15 days, which would telecast the games in HD format for it.
