How DTH providers are in Loss after new TRAI Rules/Regulations?

The new TRAI Rules were made to empower the customer. As you may have noticed that there were many unnecessary channels that were bundled in our packages which were of no use to us.

Although, after this, you will be able to add the channels to your Airtel DTH as per your choice. This can, however, affect the DTH providers because there are channels which don’t have high viewership. As the new TRAI regulations take momentum all those channels can explicitly be removed from the bundle.

This can affect the survival of those channels which have low viewership. Before the rules these channels were bundled with the package so unknowingly we were funding their survival. Although, after the Regulations takes place most of those channels have high chances of ending and no longer being broadcasted by the DTH or Cable services.

This means that the DTH Providers will be getting less fee from the broadcaster’s side as they will be airing fewer channels.

Reason Why TRAI Come up with New Rules/Regulations for DTH?

Well, a lot of people were suffering from the high prices that the DTH services imposed on the customers. Also, the customers didn’t have any freedom when it came to several channels.

This decision for bringing out new TRAI regulations was to make your TV Viewing more affordable and to regulate the prices of the channels. Previously, all the operators were taking subscription charges as per their will.

Also, when you were buying a package which was the most affordable option then, you were also being charged for unnecessary channels that you don’t even watch.

After the regulations, customers will have the freedom to choose the channels as per their choice.

So this was all about the new TRAI Rules/Regulations and also the Airtel DTH channel price list for A-La-Carte option in 2018. We hope this article may have been of some help to you.
