As TRAI’s new rules for finalizing the cost for TV stations will begin from 1 February 2019, and as most DTH and cable operators are yet to announce their new plans, TV watchers may be in an ideal situation energizing their memberships just for present moment, rather than settling on entire year or half-year packs. You may try to pick up from the new valuing framework as it is said to be radically cutting down the TV bills.
While TRAI has moved the before relocation date for DTH and cable operators from 29 December 2018 to 31 January 2019, and as the majority of the specialist organizations are yet to move to the new arrangement, it may be smarter to hang tight for the more up to date designs as there is no structure yet with respect to the end result for the prior memberships after 31 January 2019.
In the meantime, TRAI is observing the advancement of customer corner, decisions of the consumers, arrangement of purchasers care channel, the level of buyers whose decision has been gotten and so on everyday premise. Additionally, it has been noticed that the majority of the service providers have propelled a dedicated customer care channel on Channel Number 999, as stated on the report.
How the new arrangement will function?
As per the new arrangement, the users need to pay for a base pack which is estimated to be Rs 130 or more 18% GST included. This sums to Rs 153. The base pack involves 100 FTA channels.
Over this, you can choose the channels individually or you can also settle on bunch plansoffered by the service provider which should cost at least 85% expense of the individual channels consolidated.
For each 25 channels chosen over 100 FTA channels, users are supposed to pay a capacity fee of Rs 20. Nonetheless, if the quantity of channels chosen over the 100 FTA channels are under 15, the users will pay Re 1 each for those channels. For instance, on the off chance that one buys in to 114 channels, one should pay Rs 153+14. While, in the event that one buys in channels which range anywhere between 116 and 125 channels, one should spend Rs 153+20.
