India is making some radical plans in order to double the number of DTH channels available to viewers by 2014....

.....The chairman of India’s Space Research Organisation (ISRO), Mr K Radhakrishnan, said India currently has 211 satellite transponders, of which 195 are operational. "We need to go up to 500 (transponders) by 2014," said Radhakrishan. He said that the ISRO policy to date had been to launch 2 or 3 satellites a year, but this would increase to six to eight satellites a year.
