Update: Space constraint is the only hindrance of adding new channels
Advertisement
#1
Today at around 2 pm I contacted Mr. Shantanu Chakraborty Area Sales Manager, West Bengal, Ballygunge Office about new channel additions. He said to me that inspite of having tremendous space constraints they have added 14 New Channels in 2014 so far out of which 50 % ROI Channels, 50% South Indian Channels. He classified the newly added channels like this :

1. ROI - DD -India / DD -Rajasthan / DD -Madhya Pradesh / DD -Uttar Pradesh / DD -Bihar / DD -North East / Sony Six / Sony Six HD / Discovery Tamil.

2. South Indian - Samaya News 24X7 / I News Telugu / Mathrubhumi News / Kairali People / ETV News Kannada.

I asked him that how can Discovery Tamil is a ROI Channel ? He said me that all infotainment channels are not language specific and that's why they placed it on LCN 541 (Infotainment Section) rather than placing it on Tamil Section.

As of now no new ROI Channels he said. But if Zee ETC Punjabi + shuts down then it has to be replaced by a good Punjabi Channel. But it depends on Reliance as Sun Direct is sharing this channel from RDTV.
When asked about Bengali channels may be ETV News Bangla he said no news as of now. Apart from 7 Bengali Channels Sun Direct also provides 2 Language Feeds.

This is my added comment - Only 9 Bengali Channels can never do any good to sun direct.

He finally said till space constraint issue is resolved Sun Direct cannot add a single ROI Channels, but will keep on adding South channels as per priority.

Addition of DD channels is a forceful decision i don't think they add these channels in a strategic way.

See sun direct did not have any small screen DD Channels. So whatever they added are newly added. But Airtel & D2H actually converted their small screen DD Channels into a full screen so thats cannot be considered as any new additions.

No Anirudha, other dths converted their small screen DD Channels into full screen. But Sun Direct did not have small screen DD Channels. So their additions has to be taken as brand new additions compared to other dths.

I am not saying Sun Direct is not adding DD channels, but if a company guy saying that they add DD channels strategically in Sun Direct platform then i don't agrees with it, they add DD channels forcefully and except DD channels if they add any other private channels in Sun Direct platform for ROI customer then its most welcome.

See a channel is a channel. Be it DD or private. it does not bother at all. This year so far SD has added 14 new channels. Its a good start to the year. Please be patient.
