EPL, Serie A, La Liga, UEFA Champions League, ICC Cricket World Cup, IPL, etc.

So, essentially Star Sports and Ten Network channels.

Best will be to add single particular channel for that particular timings… Mostly a single series run at a time… So u could start that channel on that very day only & drop it when over… Like if EPL is coming on ten Sports from 2-16 Mar & Ipl from 23 at Star Sports 2 then add only Ten sport on 02 Mar morning then drop it on 16. Then again add Star Sports 2 on 23 Mar. I am doing it like this only… Its much much better to have all sports channel all the time with individual channels at required time…

No.. its true & best option as per current tariff unless you don’t have anything specific to watch and just want to switch between channels to check if something is worth watching for.

- yes i have been doing it that way only…. No monthly thing now… I use Tata sky & Airtel too usally it takes 15-20 sec only.
- IPL available at Star Sports 1,2 & 1 hindi (Hds & Select too) So select Star Sports 2 its Cheaper.. May be for ₹6/pm however others are ₹19/pm

Do they charge for those selected days only..?? Because packs have a lock in period of 30days probably, so, if I thought even if we use of lesser days they will charge of 1month..
However, still it was better to activate as per need.

Yeah, unfortunately the mass-rape of Indian DTH sector by TRAI, now its wiser to select the sports channels on the day the sports taking place itself. That way you will only pay for the channels on per-day basis, much more economical, than being raped thoroughly if opted for monthly package. I, however, can’t be bothered by that shite, who has the time to add channels on every weekend and then remove the same and all that? So I have stopped watching sports. Thanks to TRAI.

Yeah #uck TRAI LOL

But guys, how is the money charged on a daily basis? For example, Ten 1 shows as 19/Month.

Yes it is charged on daily basic Tatasky changed my plan to Hindi HD lite (recommendation) without my permission and ₹12day start deducting from my account balance
Today after lots of struggle somehow managed to fix at ₹250 (10-12 channel)
Hence from today onwards ₹8 will cut from my available balance daily
And if u have balance available in ur account , it will show when u need to do next recharge according to ur current plan

Dish & D2H have 30 day lockins. Airtel has 1 day lockin. I guess it’s the same with TS too (someone confirm).

But these operators can change the rules anytime.
