Digitization isa good thing, cable ops used to not give broadcasters their share of money and now they will be forced to.
Prices will rationalize soon. It takes time to build policies, the new guideline of TRAI which comes into effect from April 1 will make price afforfabl
do not forget......the past generation grew up with dd national only.
and also concept of digitization or digitization took place more than 10 years ago.
means digitization have already crossed 10 + years. still the prices are not rationalize.
i m a rational customer like others but still i think we are being looted.
e.g. 204 rs. for just 28 hd channels or 500-600 rs. for all sd channels.
10 years ago there were just 2 DTH ops, there was no strict implementation of digitization. Broascasters hardly showed interest in new chs or content. Landscape has changed drastically in last 4 years for the better. Competition and more chs have lead to change in policies. Wait n Watch prices will get affordable, there can't be an upward trend forever. All parties involved know that people r price sensitive but then marginal increase with more pay chs being launched is alright.
Just wait till April 1, u would see the first step
before that only, all dth will hike the prices. no need to wait till 1st april.
n this is just a mere speculation
