Rs 11,050 cr: Rival Sony’s individual bid for TV rights compared to Star’s Rs 6,196 cr. But STAR’s consolidated global bid was higher than the sum total of parts of every individual bid received. Even for the India subcontinent digital rights, individually Star (Rs1,443cr) bid less than Airtel (Rs3,280 cr), Times Internet (Rs 1,787.50cr), Facebook (Rs 3,900 cr), and Jio (Rs 3,075.72 cr).
