It turned out to be good for me. I moved to a basic local language pack which costs less than my previous pack, this serves my parents well. As far as I go, I stopped watching TV toungueout

These days better to stop using regular tv and take up the subscriptions of various streaming apps and sites, better content available than TV

Take the major ones, say hotstar, netflix , prime video (Not to mention, combine with offers as and when they come)
There are several offers on Sony LIV, Altbalaji as well so can get them for free, the content is always better than TV

Also, these days DTH offers have increased substantially , so in case you still want TV, i think after cashbacks the cost still comes below the old system , hell lot of offers there from amazon and gang

Mine allowed to choose from channels but the base charge was ₹153 and if i add star, sony and zee packages than the total reached ₹300 at that point it was better to take all channels @ ₹350.
But in July during the amazon loot i ordered Tata sky from amazon and now using offers i am paying less than ₹200 per month.

I rely on Hotstar for sports now. Sports channels are quite expensive to add on and I see no point when Hotstar VIP covers most major events and costs just Rs. 365 per annum.

Used to get all channels package plus additional benefits for Rs. 8900 per annum but now even for just basic telegu HD channels package I am shelling out Rs. 415 per month. Thanks to TRAI smile

It has increased by 40% for me. Earlier, used to pay around 1.3k (for 3 Multirooms) and now paying 1.9k.

Also, I have subscriptions with all major streaming- Hotstar/Sony Liv/Jio/Alt Balaji but the issue is, I rather like to watch stuffs randomly. Channel surfing is my vice as I like to watch 2+ movies simultaneously.

PS: Dont have netflix but download stuff which i fancy (And I binge-watch these with TV on!)

It has become more terrible for MultiTV users. I used to get the same all channels package that I had on primary TV to other TVs at just Rs. 240 per month but now I am shelling out Rs. 350/month only for local channels and that too in SD (not HD).

Even I enjoy randomly browsing through the channels which is a pain on streaming services. These streaming services are good only when one wants to watch a particular show or pick up something from recommendations.

I Would Recommend Get A Stable Internet Connection + Firestick And Enjoy Live Tv For Free stuck_out_tongue

All Live Tv Channels + Catch Up + Movies And More.

Now DTH Is Just Not Affordable As They Are Raising The Price Every Now And Then.

I M Very Sure That Soon They Will Attack OTT Services As This Is Making More Business In India With Quality Content.

I Last Used DTH In 2016. Then I Was Using Jio Tv On Mobile And Now On Firestick.

Lol someone just woke up apparently!

The minimum increase for your bill with be 30-40%, as long as you’re a Airtel Digital TV user, or D2H or Dish TV consumer. It is slightly benefiting for the Tata sky users only, who were already paying an absurd amount per month to start with, they still do, but just a bit less. So Trai’s focus was on them mainly. To take the pressure off the ultra riches. While common people like us, got raped many times over.

I used to pay 251 PM for all regional channels in HD and all sports channels in HD (along with SD channels also), now i pay 170 rupees for regional SD channels only. Sports channels? Lmfao. To get the same set of channels now, i’d have to shell out at least 400 rupees per month. So like 60% increase there.

Funny for us Airtel users were the annual all channel package, both sd and HD, for 5500 one was able to get all the available channels. Under this offer that is now 12k or more than that.

Only Indian people can be fooled like this. Pay as per channel nonsense eye wash brought by TRAI. Why pay for all channels which you don’t watch when you can select your own channels? Indian people got sold, didn’t even think with their massive brain size the ultimate thing here matters is how much you’re going to end up paying per month! I paid 250 for maybe 100 channels, out of which less than 20 were watched, 80 were useless. Now one have to pay 400 for his/her selected 12 channels, and no useless channels. So big gain right? By paying more and still losing on few of your favourite channels?

Jesus! Do you use your earlobes or nipples every day? Why not cut it off? (Not for women the aforesaid, lol).
