Doubts over a multi-million pound contract for Satellite Information Services' (SIS) Live to produce and broadcast this year's Commonwealth Games in New Delhi have been ended after the British company reached an agreement with India's public broadcaster Doordarshan.

The $500 million (£306 million) contract was awarded last October after a global tender to Milton Keynes-based SIS Live, Europe's largest outside broadcast and uplink supplier.

But the contract had remained unsigned because SIS Live were unhappy about a number of aspects.

Those problems have now been resolved and the contract is expected to be signed this week.

Alan Bright, the commercial manager and project head of SIS Live for the Commonwealth Games, said: "We are signing the contract with Doordarshan in next few days and will cover the Games for it."

SIS Live's role includes setting up world-class telecast facilities at the venues of 17 sporting events for the Games, which are due to open on October 3, as well as helping train Doordarshan staff.

SIS Live are due to provide over 1,000 highly-skilled technical and production staff at the 12 venues in Delhi assisted by 300 Doordarshan staff.
