No, you can’t continue with the old package.

That price hike is normal, happens to more than 80% the consumers. Rest 20%, who were paying like 700 PM might see benefit from this rule. And also, hike in price should be termed as reduction in price from now on, just do the math inverse and you’re fine. Deport to other nations if you can’t allow yourself to be looted, you don’t belong in the great India.

Are you the same guy from Digit Forum?

What? NCF is 130 per month. Up to 100 SD channels it remains the same. The math is very easy really, it’s NCF + the pay channels of your choice + 18% GST.

I am on the ultra pack right now which includes all the English and sports channels and it costs 560 p/m. Now under this scheme, TS recommended pack is Hindi lite hd + Tamil regional pack+ NCF amounting to 430. Doors it mean in includes those English and sports channels as well or do they have to be added separately? I don’t see any English or sports under Hindi lite hd.

If you do not make your pack then it simply migrate your account to their recommended pack.

for eg.

I am using Dhamaal Pack + 3 months 99 HD access = 319 total

their new recommended pack for me which covers all my channels will cost me 505/- .

so if you do not choose anything then probably you will be given a recommended pack as per your previous pack with TataSky . grinning

Brother I think u are wrong… They will migrate to recommend pack but that pack will ultimately cost u more.

No idea about TS mate, you have to ask other TS subs, like many are here to help you anyway. But under the TS recommended package, there has to be an option of View Channel List or something alike, where you can see what channels you are getting. Like you said, you don’t see the channels you have now, so that might mean those channels aren’t included in the recommended package by TS.

Just so you know, this rule was meant to INCREASE the cable bill. Yes, for a typical minority it decreases it, but for majority of us, the increase is between 30-60%, and sometimes even much more than that.

Just think, even you cut ALL CHANNELS, and only watch DOORDARSHAN channels, which are TOTALLY FREE, you will still have to pay 130+GST every month.

One of the best jokes of the century, if not of all time.

Nope, no one does for sure. Some say airtel will choose the closest package matching you current channel subscriptions automatically; some say it will be a blackout (which won’t happen anyway unless you have low balance); some say that the airtel recommended bouquet will be activated (which for god’s sake will be doom, as those bouquets are insanely overpriced and filled with junk channels!).

I will let you know though, I won’t give-in to this rule, and I will see what happens on 1st February.

In my account I see two recommended packs. One with 123 channels for Rs. 480 and other with 133 channels for Rs. 590.

My current pack costs me Rs. 315 and it shows 301 channels.

I am still unsure how will this new regulation bring down the monthly price.

No need to worry. Tatasky have one day lock in period policy so one can change his pack on 2nd February also. I suggest you to go with broadcaster’s bouquets. It will give you some clarity.

Bastards. The same plan that used to cost me 560 earlier is 822 now cause of the NCF. Time to ditch DTH altogether. Can anyone suggest a cheaper alternative like fire stick in which I can watch live TV channels

Yeah, ping me also. Decent enough internet is something which I will always have, and if there is a way to actually stream shits, then I will be totally in, though at 1080i, not 720p.

I am unsure as to how come you are not getting the full picture behind this rule even after two weeks have passed? Its as clear as water, why this rule was made, for whom it was made, who is benefiting from this and all that. Just head over to TRAI’s twitter account and see what the DTH consumers are replying. People have gone to schools you know. Unlike these politicians and other government organisation’s leaders, its class 4 math you need to know to actually see what’s happening.

I didn’t mean to offend you. My post came out aggressive because I’m wholeheartedly against this draconian rule, and everyone should be! Why they are not is what makes me even more baffled and angry eventually. I simply took a sarcastic tone because most consumers, like you, are fooled by TRAI. When a government organisation openly spreads disinformation, you’re bound to be misled! At least initially.

For me, Delhi NCR region, i am able to save atleast 119. I was on sports dhamaka plan with HD access (420+175 = 595). I have selected bouquet of NDTV Ultra, TV Today News,Sony Happy Platinum HD,Star Hindi Premium HD, Times Bouquet1 which costed me 259 with taxes. On top of it I selected some ala carte channels like colors HD, ZEE HD, ANDTV, MTV etc and some regional channels which cost me around 64. So total cost is 259+64+153 = 476. In total I selected 39 SD and 30 hd and there is complimentary pack apart from this which will have 155 channels(DD + additional channels). So i guess this rule will help mostly those who want to have HD access but for rest it will be costly for sure.

P.S. My main priority is to have all sports channels(Sony and Star) in HD along with SET, ZEE TV, Colors TV and Star plus in HD.

Earlier there was much more choice with better channels.
