So this is the bleak future of DD Direct Plus, India's only free DTH service going to become DD Direct Minus with this mass removal of private channels. Big Grin

I think all the private broadcasters have unitedly boycotted DD Direct Plus.

Post 31 Oct, 2013...we can expect a few more DD channels maybe DD Manipur, DD Hissar etc. The rest will carry colour bars or test signals of DD National, DD News, DD Bharati and so on.

Hahaha. Big Grin yes Nair Sir, this is indeed a rude shock for many people, unless the channels renew agreement or DDD+ finds good replacement channels.

Meanwhile I have an interesting story to share. I broke this news to a temple priest in my area who has DDD+ installed in the temple to catch Aastha, Divya and some Bhajan channels.

He was upset when Sanskar TV left DDD+, but now he is more disturbed with nothing left to view after 31 Oct.

So he has asked me alternate way to be able to watch these free-to-air devotional channels through C-band. I will share it in IDF as soon as it materializes.

Dabangg, France 24 are only known to be aired on DD Direct Plus after 1 November, 2013 as per scroll message on DD News...No idea about the remaining channels.

The document in Post #1 is finalized and signed 27 August, 2013. So I doubt if those channels have any intention of renewing agreement.

Along with a loss to DD Direct viewers, Z Dishtv subscribers also stand to lose some good channels like NewsX etc since the DDD+ Insat4B signals are also received in Dishtv STB.

Yes, as of now two public service broadcasting channels France24 and Australia's abc will be available on DD Direct Platform w.e.f Nov 01, 2013.

I think, Pudhu Yugam TV (Tamil GEC Industry’s game changing TV channel will be launched on tommorrow-23-10-2013) and Pudhiya Thalamurai TV has lot of chances to add on DD Direct + as these channels two won't be available on Sun Direct.

PY concern, tomorrow only will come to know about the DTH platform details.

Ok. Thanks. Yes ABC will also get added.
Its fine that a handful new channels will come but we need more Indian private channels instead of repetitive Test DD channels or bunch of foreign channels.

Both DD Direct Plus and Dishtv viewers will miss out on popular channels if things do not fall back in place anytime soon.
