MUMBAI: Even as other direct-to-home (DTH) operators are aggressively adding subscribers every quarter, Reliance Communications’ DTH brand Reliance Digital TV is a study in contrast.

Reliance Digital TV has not seen any increase or fall in subscribers in the quarter ended 31 December 2016. The DTH operator’s subscriber base has remained stuck at 5 million for the fourth straight quarter.

In its quarterly result, Reliance Communications has said that Reliance Digital TV currently has about 5 million subscribers, with 6% share of the DTH market in India.

Dish TV had added 204,000 net subscribers in the fiscal third quarter while Airtel Digital TV had added 183,000 net subscribers. Videocon d2h had mopped up 0.25 million net subscribers in the quarter.

According to the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI), the six private DTH operators had 94.61 million subscribers with 61.9 million active and 32.71 million inactive subscribers, as on 30 September.

Reliance Digital TV offers 294 channels in HD-like quality. It is available at nearly 36,000 outlets across numerous cities in the country.

As reported earlier, RCom is planning to hive off its DTH business to pare debt. The company is looking to sell its non-core assets as it seeks to bring down the debt-to-EBIDTA ratio from 4.64 to around 3 in the next 18–24 months. The other measures planned are selling stake in international operations at Reliance Globalcom and a divestment in its tower business Reliance Infratel.
