    I guess they will charge carriage fees for the reach of channels. Example.D2H has 1 million South pack subscribers and 2 million North pack subscribers, then [color=#FF0000][u]if the channel desires to be in both packs then they might have to pay a carriage fee[/u][/color] for 3million subscribers and if they chose North pack then they might have to pay for 2 million

    Heiglighted line says as Channel has to pay carriage fee 😀 not subscribers.

    But bro, carriage fee will be given by channel to DTH company.
    Customers not gives carriage fees.
    They gives subscription amount.
    & they should get all FTA channels in All packs.

May be it is like that?

    I am not sure speculating whether the system is like this.

    Do you know, carriage fee is that money, which Broadcasting company/channel gives to DTH for broadcasting their channel in DTH.
    So, d2h must give all carriage fee channels in All packs.

    The channels you mentioned are Hindi channels and the pack itself named as South and D2H expects less people going to watch Hindi channels in South India. Many people in South know Hindi and watch Hindi channels but they will mostly stick with famous Hindi channels. That might be the reason for not adding those into South packs as D2H can get more money from those people who watch less famous channels.
    [/quote]

    I know that South peoples watch less Hindi channels.
    But, my question is that, why d2h not providing such Carriage fee channels in Silver packs.
    Their Silver packages are too costly if we consider channel list.
    They still not Providing Free to air channels like Rishtey, DD Bangla, Zee Anmol etc. in silver packs.
    Why?
    Even people will not watch them.
    But, these are Carriage fee free to air channels.

    Just an example that I watch only few Tamil channels and few Hindi/English news channels. If they had no packs then if I take Tamil channels even if Sun TV or Vijay TV costs Rs.10 and few other channels for Rs.5, then my total rate will be around 35 or 40rs only for the whole month. But those DTHs have added lots of channels which I am never going to watch and increased the rates to 180rs.

    They might have included even UHD channels but no for me no use as I am going to watch only some channels. So asking me to pay increased price for things which I never watch is unfair. It will be good deal for people who watch all those.

    DTH used to bundle unpopular channels into the packs because no one is taking those channels as alacarte. They cannot openly admit that Natgeo People don’t have takers. So they will tell it is a premium channel and adding it! If it was premium people would have long back itself taken it as Alacarte.

    As you watch those channels it is good deal for you. As we don’t watch we cry for the increased price.
    [/quote]

    You are right bro.
    But, still No any DTH provides many unpopular channels in 180 rupees pack.
    D2h don’t provides Channels like Dangal, Big Magic, Enterr 10 & many more in South silver, silver maxi & silver sports packs.
    Why?
    You knows the prices of such packs are upto Rs.240 pm.
    Why they do this?
    Not a single Hindi movie channel is available in these packs.
    Oh god.
    Give such knowledge to d2h.

    You are right bro.
    But, If any DTH gives 3 to 4 extra channels by increasing pack price by Rs.10, then it will be good deal.
    & For your information, NGC people price is Rs.12 pm.
    & I don’t want to spend such amount for single channel.
    Ala carte rates are too high.

    OK if a DTH adds 5 – 10 regional channels, suppose Tamil / telugu channels and increase your package cost by 10rs? Then what will be your situation?

    People now adays wants counts. 😀 How many view those extra added all 3-5 channels ? The subscriber become happy that DTH added 5 channels for Rs 10 /- but hardly hand count users watch one or two channels.
    [/quote]

    But, channels should be popular & premium.
    You are somewhat right. But, Not Absolutely right.:d
    We want more popular channels at less cost.

    depends upon the viewers and TRPs of certain channels found by the DTH . they know how many users watch those channels ,demand for those channels. for me i never watched NGC People HD although it’s available to me. :).

    But bro, I like Ngc people very much. But, d2h provides it in last package.
    So sad.
    & this channel is useless for you but, not for others.
    Watching same channel in HD will be dream for me.
    & d2h should add All such channels in Base packages.
    [/quote]

    Then base pack price will increase more.
    [/quote]

    No bro.
    10 rupees price hike will be sufficient for 3 to 5 or more extra channels.
    DTH is in big profit by carriage fees & subscription amount even though after paying salary of employees.

    That is what i am saying you might like but i dont.. so i wont pay 10rs for it. But as you like you can pay 10rs more to it.. so what is best solution?

    Dont you think they could have made this channel ala carte for 10rs and you can subscribe to it and i wont have had to shell out more 10rs for channel which is added in base pack and price increased simply which i dont watch?

    Bro, actual ala carte price of both channels is Rs.50 pm but, as they are now in base pack, with Price hike is just 10 rupees only.

  31. price hike by adding some channels which most of them dont watch dont make sense among DTH operators.

  32. But Nat Geo People and Epic worth even 10rs?

  33. No any changes in South Value Sports, South Value Prime & South Max Packs
