The E-auction will be made by m/s. C1 India Pvt. Ltd., Noida, which also held the sale of Phase III FM radio auction on behalf of Prasar Bharati. DD refused to reveal the number of slots set for electronic auction, as officials claim that this leads to unhealthy practices.

Although FreeDish will remain free to air TV mode but the viewers must register with DD Free Dish by buying new ICAS enabled set top box from dealers licensed by Doordarshan.

FreeDish was out with a modest bouquet of 33 channels in December 2004 and now has eighty television channels and 32 radio channels. This includes 22 channels of Doordarshan and two parliamentary, seven entertainment channels, 18 movie channels, 13 channels of news, seven music channels, three religious channels and eight channels of other genres. All stations of All India Radio are also back on the platform.

At present, most of the STB are imported. However, the introduction of ICAS help normalization of STB and encourage the production of quality STB in India.
