May 27, 2019
Finally, the list of all FTA or Free-To-Air channels is out, as shared by the broadcasters with TRAI (Telecom Regulatory Authority of India).
This list of FTA channels, which are free to air, and can be accessed by anyone having any dish is crucial, as users only need to pay Rs 130 plus GST to access them.
Besides, users of DD Free Dish can access these FTA channels as well, after paying Rs 130 plus GST.
TRAI New Cable TV Rules: How FTA Channels Will Work
Under TRAI’s new rules, a user of cable or DTH is eligible to access 100 FTA or Free to Air channels, under the base pack, wherein Rs 130 (plus GST) is charged as network connect fee.
Now, in case that customer has chosen only 60 FTA or Free to Air channels, then he or she can choose 40 more and complete the list. However, in case the user chooses pay channels, then extra amount needs to be paid, as determined by the broadcaster and the cable operator.
Adding extra channels would incur Rs 25 for a slab of 20 channels, as mentioned by TRAI.
