While the CWG telecast will be available to viewers, it will be at the expense of Doordarshan news. The news channel has a viewership of about 2.8 million people, according to Prasar Bharati.
The I&B ministry issued a showcase notice to Ten Sports on Tuesday evening for declining to share the feed with DD Sports. Confirming the move, I&B secretary Bimal Julka said, "We have recommended to Prasar Bharati to show the games on DD News. The board was of the opinion that it would be a loss of revenue if sports is telecast on DD National."]
