Come Sept, pick 'n choose DTH channels
Advertisement
#1
Come September and subscribers of DTH services would be able to pick and choose the channels they want to watch but have to pay a minimum of Rs 150 per month for a bouquet of channels of their choice.

In its tariff order for 2010, broadcast regulator TRAI also included provisions to protect the consumers from rise in rates, like no increase in subscription charges in the first six months of enrolling.

The rates can, however, be decreased in those six months and the consumer can opt for any other service provided by the DTH operators.

The composition of the bouquet of channels should also be the same as those for the normal cable subscribers.

"Every service provider providing broadcasting services or cable services to its subscribers using an addressable system shall offer...to its subscribers on a-la-carte basis," the order, which will come into effect from September one, said.
