These HD or SD channels get bulk revenue from advertisers. News channels gets good revenue from black mailing, paid news etc.,. For what  they are asking us subscription? These are greedy business entities who like to get money in what ever way possible.

Government can easily control the prices. They just need to bring in a clause where by there shall not be any advertisement if it is a Pay/Scrambled channel.

DTH operators are no different. They ask carriage fees to xyz channel and again ask us some money to show the channel! What kind of business is this? Unless government takes some proper measures these people will keep on increasing rates.

Now a days I hardly watch TV and watch most of the content online. Able to chose content without worry and importantly skip ads :Big Grin

Still most of the news media houses r in loss, there is more investment than the revenue (as per balance sheet, i don't if there is any scam and numbers r false).

In DTH too the investments r high, also 33% of what they earn goes to state and central governments. Id they don't add carriage chs then our bills would be further high.

Its a whole cycle, one thing leads to another and i know that everywhere there must be something dark which leads to another. Ultimately its the common people who suffer.

DTH prices will stabilize soon else already 50% subscribers r deactive and it will further rise

As far as i remember during early days when Zee channel started hardly we see any ads.... it was in 90s ... i think there was not much ads when Dish TV DTH too launched... after days gone by i think mainly after the entrance of Star channels   ads began to pour ...
