TRAI reviewing the broadcast tariff system After complaints

Finally, TRAI understands that DTH & Cable TV Subscribers budget increased after new rule implementation. So TRAI has started a review of the broadcast tariff system and channels MRP.

The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has started a review of the broadcast tariff system which implemented 8 months ago, after lots of complaints of increased TV viewing budget and a large number of complaints about the difficulty of choosing channels. Experts said that the goal of the review is to make the choice of channels easier and also to reduce the price. The regulator has also reprimanded broadcasters and cable operators for misuse of new rules to increase revenue and eliminate consumers' choices.



TRAI released a detailed consultation paper on Friday, asking 30 questions. It asks whether channel bouquet should be allowed? Should discounts be re-considered within the bouquet offered to consumers? And should the ceiling in the bouquet be reviewed for the ceiling price (currently Rs 19)?

Earlier the same viewers were getting 100+ FTA channels and other channels at Rs.99 only. Most of DTH services were offering this pack including Dish TV, Videocon D2h and Airtel Digital TV.


For example, if earlier a viewer want to watch only one pay channel then the monthly cost was Rs.99+17 = 116 monthly
But after implementation of TRAI new rule, all the DTH services and broadcasters increased the prices of pay-TV channels. Now monthly budget coming for the same channels as below
Minimum payable amount Rs.154 which called NCF charge (Network Capacity Fees) + 19 for the pay channel. So now the consumer is paying for the single pay channel Rs.130+19 (TAX) = 175.82 monthly.
It means if anyone wants to watch only single pay channel then have to pay Rs.175
Earlier the same consumer getting lots of pay channel and FTA channels in Rs.180 monthly basic packs.


So that's why the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has started a review of the broadcast tariff system after lots of consumer complaints.

What happens if all popular channels to be removed from DD Freedish?

What happens if all popular channels to be removed from DD Freedish?

What happens if all popular channels to be removed from DD Freedish?

Yes, it can be true. Because recently lots of news and reports publishing in various media sources that India’s top broadcasters decided to remove their top free to air TV channels from DD Free dish DTH. All the media sources claiming that it will be huge losses for the public broadcaster (DD Freedish).

But I think, It will be good news for Prasar Bharati and DD Freedish subscribers because Prasar Bharati can launch their own TV channels in different-different categories like Kids / Comedy / Movies / Drama / Info in languages wise. Because if Prasar Bharati can run 50+ educational channels within a few months then it will not be a big task to start Doordarshan’s own movie channel or kid’s channel.

Do you know? recently Prasar Bharati advertisement revenue dropped from all Doordarshan channels due to DD Freedish DTH carrying private TV channels. Because currently, the top private TV channels have high jacked all advertisement revenue of free dish dth so Prasar Bharati forms new guidelines for DD Free Dish e-auctions with higher slot charges to recover losses.

So now the same broadcasters going against these new guidelines ( DD Freedish revised policy) and decided to boycott DD Freedish. So if it happens then no wonder but Prasar Bharati has another chance to shine DD Freedish and Doordarshan channels with new category, language, and genre.
What happens if all popular channels to be removed from DD Freedish?

What changes can be possible from Doordarshan?

Very simple, Prasar Bharati can convert all DD basic regional channels to regional general entertainment channel with the latest content, regional news and cartoon slot. They need to change the current programming type on every channel. Channels name and logo should also be changed for example DD UP = Prayag TV or GetUP Tv etc.

How it could be profitable for Prasar Bharati?

Now Prasar Bharati can earn more by more good channels and more advertisements.

How to they can bring content?

They can buy the latest content from many producers like Eros Now, T-Series, Netflix, Amazon Prime, and other sources. Because the audience wants new content not recorded or old.

Conclusion:

In last, Prasar Bharati has a golden chance to increase and promote its own TV channels. Also, new private Tv channels can promote their content on DD Freedish. DD Freedish can produce competitor of big broadcasters from this platform.
So Just wait and watch...

DD Free Dish Testing first HD channel on its DTH platform

Sandeep / New Delhi / 08/12/2017
DD Free Dish is India's first FREE DTH service now testing its first HD channel on its DTH platform. DD Freedish added "DD National HD" channel on DVB-S2 frequencies. DD National HD channel is also available on TATA Sky platform.

If you have free-to-air HD set-top box then you can tune this channel in high definition quality. DD Freedish providing large numbers TV channels without any monthly subscription.

Although, the number of HD channels on private DTH platforms is far less than that on paid platforms. Tata Sky has around 90+ HD channels, Airtel Digital with around 70 and Dish TV and Sun Direct with around 80 and Videocon D2H has about 80+ HD channels.

But bad news for “DD Free Dish iCAS set-top box subscribers”, because this high definition channel will not be available in iCAS set-top boxes. As of now DD Free Dish iCAS set-top boxes are available in MPEG-4 technology only, and not upgraded yet for high definition TV channels, also you cannot watch other satellites FTA channels in iCAS set-top boxes due to its software limitations.

So simply buy non-iCAS set-top box to enjoy all TV channels, so you can install free DTH system using a free-to-air HD satellite receiver and a 55cm to 75cm ku-band dish antenna that has to be pointed to the GSAT 15 satellite placed over the 93.5 degree East position.

While another FREE DTH service ABS Freeview also providing one free-to-air HD channel "Trace Sports HD" on its platform. ABS Freeview DTH is carrying about 80+ national & international TV channels. You can also tune this satellite if you have a high defination set-top box and dish antenna system. You need to relocate your dish antenna at 75 degree east position.
