Single rate for all DTH channels
Advertisement
#1
Refer to “Star backs off as Tata Sky stake plan hits govt. wall” (Screen, March 26, 2010). DTH is not cheaper than the cable TV connection, but much more costly. For example, Tata Sky has added some channels to its packages, they also now and then take few regional channels like Zee Gujarati; and four of DD channels including Gujarati DD, which is switched to Active menu that comes in a reduced size on the screen like on a mobilephone screen. Who would like to watch it?

In fact, all the channels in English and Hindi, except for regional ones, must have a single rate. Regional language TV programmes are watched by those who understand that language and, as such, these channels are not of much use for most TV viewers.

TRAI must interfere and restrict the charges for all the channels. It must ensure that all free channels, too, are included in the single rate fixed by TRAI.

One point where Cable TV is better than DTH is that during rains unlike DTH, its broadcast is not at all affected. On the other hand the DTH TATA SKY many a times fails to receive the signal and TV has to be shut down.

If the subject means Single rate for all dth channels it cannot assume uniformity as price of each channel do vary also in the case if the subject intended uniformity in channel price across dth which again connot happen as per the pricing policy of each DTH differs.
