AXN don't run in our area due to our cable operator :( However I condemned such decision from I&B ministry. They should not ban anything which is non-pornographic in nature.

becasue we already don't have any channels like HBO, star, espn, discovery, AXN, etc etc...

eggjaktly,

unfortunately we are ruled by sexa/hepta/octagenerians who finished their life 30 years ago. and then there are sentimental fools who will do anything in the dark corners of the city, but will kill each other the moment these things come in public view.

these same moral police folks drool over anybody they see in public, let alone the ones who are ready to show it to them for money.

double standards!!

I guess they are worried about spoiling the future generation, they forget that future generation belongs to future.

for long i m of the idea that in india we need referrendum, not just elections but evictions also. evictions of all politicians, their families & friends from politics forever. to contest elections u should have had certain minimum standards & also that u can contest only once.

else channels will b banned as per the whims & fancy of the govt. & normal public gets $crewed that too ROYALLY

AXN has definately been banned. Just because some of you are getting AXN doesn't change the fact that it's been banned. There has been a lot of newsprint and a lot of discussions on "government's high handedness" on many news channels. It's a wonder you haven't come across all these news reports and tv coverage on the same. I don't know how some people are getting AXN and some not. We all know how good both local and central government's are in execution of laws, rules and regulations here. I, personally, am not getting AXN from January 15. For those of you who are still recieveing the channel, consider yourselves lucky because you are NOT supposed to get AXN for the next 2 months.

I started this thread and if you go back to the first post on this thread you will see that a link has been posted to the The Times of India news article on the AXN 2 month ban issue. This thread was not started based on rumors or hearsay and a authoritative newspaper article's link was provided for the same reason.

I think if all channels become paid, people should have the choice to pay for what they want to see. If you're conservative or have any opinions against a channel, well, don't buy it ,, but imposing a ban on the channel and curbing the viewer's discretion by some moronic ***** in government is nondemocratic in nature..
Moreover for viewers interested in explicit content, there is no dearth of avenues.. Also they could have issued a directive to ban the program but nor the entire channel.. I miss CSI, House etc.. IMO this is by far the most blatant display of coersive authority..

I have both cable and Tata Sky at home. AXN is available on cable but not on Tata Sky. If I switch to AXN on Tata Sky, I see a message saying it is banned due to government order. Therefore there is no question about the authenticity of the news.

Star Movies and HBO have been showing some really stupid movies of late . wanna watch a movie buy a 20 buck DVD , wanna watch explicit content there is the net , oh yea for the latest music nothing beats VH1 on TV but thats about it . screw the govt .
