As per information received to me, after getting removed from Videocon d2h and not renewing the contract further with them, these 2 channels have decided to hop on to Tata Sky platform very shortly (probably in next bunch of addition itself).
Also got info that again many carriage fee channels would be added in next round (approx 30 SD channels) & around 10 or 12 more HD chs r due for addition. Many International Chs also in pipeline.
Final negotiations still on, once contract is signed with all broadcasters , additions will follow.
Expected Timeline – Within March 1st week to 3rd week.
Also prices will not be increased to any higher extent. Now Tata Sky’s policy is to earn more revenue from carriage channels and thus putting less burden on us. This policy should be welcomed with open arms as it will benefit all.
In next few months additions will keep on moving. Many more region specific chs would also be added targeting customers from tier 3 & tier 4 cities/villages (semi urban & rural areas).
Request to people that plz don’t complain if such channels r added as DTH caters to all sections, stratas of society. Enjoy ur favorite channels, as long as they keep adding ur favorite chs u should not have an issue.
Some in house channels would also be added. Probability of SVOD type chs which will air non stop movies.
