Tata Sky to add 20 new channels shortly
Advertisement
#1
New Delhi: Direct-to-Home operator TataSky will add 20 new channels shortly as it has introduced a new compression technology to its network, a move that has disrupted services to nearly 17,000 subscribers in the past couple of days.

The company, which offers over 300 channels, would add the channels despite capacity constraints on account of improved compression standards and shifting to upgraded MPEG 4 format.

               

"Last year we have added 80 channels and we would shortly add 20 more. Some of them would be HD channels," TataSky CEO Harit Nagpal told PTI.

               

He further said: "We have also got additional capacity due to our timely decision to shift from MPEG 2 format to MPEG 4 format. It cost us money, but helped us."

               

TataSky, a JV between Tata group and media major Star has over 10 million active connections and around 3/4 connections are on MPEG 4.

               

The DTH operator, which has recently gone for a tariff hike is expecting the industry to add 4 million customers every year due to digistisation programme.
