  • WorldSpace India
    WorldSpace made its entry into the Indian market in the year 2000.
    The receivers introduced for the service of world reputed brands like Hitachi, National Panasonic, Sanyo and JVC.
    The service demanded purchase of an equipment priced at Rs. 2000 along with an annual subscription of around Rs1,800.
    95% of the subscribers to the service are from India.
    At this time, CD players, CDs and music systems were expensive and there was immense scope for expansion for a radio service.
    However due to inadequate branding and marketing activities, WorldSpace showed poor financial performance in India.
    WorldSpacedecided to terminate its services in India on 31st December 2009.
  • 10. Channels in India
  • 11. WorldSpace Current Branding
  • 12. What Went Wrong?
    Financial Standpoint:
    • The main reason for the termination was the refusal of US based Liberty Media-the buyer of much of WorldSpace’s global assets to buy the WorldSpace assets relating to - and supporting - its subscription business in India.
    • 13. Liberty Media has bought out WorldSpace’s liabilities from its creditors and currently holds a 40% stake in Sirius XM Radio with which it is planning to introduce a global satellite radio through a joint venture.
    Consumers Standpoint:
    • A considerably high price of Rs. 2000 for the equipment required for the service.
    • 14. A subscription cost of 900 Rupees for six months being a very big amount for an ordinary INDIAN, which restricts it from reaching towards the masses.
    • 15. It has made a wave only among IT professionals, executives, hotels, shopping malls, and bars, etc resulting in limited reach of the service.
    • 16. Introduction of PrasarBharati's new policy resulted in a lot of FM stations mushrooming in all states of Indiagiving WorldSpace a tough competition.
    • 17. All other similar services like DTH, TATA SKY, Dish TV etc also have very less subscription charges making WorldSpace less popular among the masses.
    Lack of adequate marketing strategies
  • 18. Relaunch
    To capture the growing satellite service industry in India and establish WorldSpace as the market leader
    Product Offering:
    WorldSpace will now come at an affordable price of Rs.1499 for the basic set with:
    • Monthly Subscription @ Rs. 100
    • 19. Half Yearly Subscription @ Rs. 550
    • 20. Yearly Subscription @ Rs. 1000
    Mobile and Internet Radio: WorldSpace will now also be available on Mobiles and through Internet Radio
    Fresh new content with more variety and range
