Broadcast Bill (Broadcasting Services (Regulation) Bill, 2023)

The proposed Broadcasting Services (Regulation) Bill, 2023, seeks to directly regulate streaming platforms such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and Disney+Hotstar as over-the-top, or OTT, broadcasting services, but under the Bill, anybody who broadcasts news and current affairs programmes online is liable to attract the same obligations as OTT streaming services. That means certain accounts and users on social media platforms can also be treated as OTT broadcasters unto themselves.
