TRAI New Rules For Dth And Cable TV | Channel Price List | Explained

Written by Naresh Kumar

TRAI new rules for DTH and cable operators: TRAI’s new framework for DTH and cable operators comes into effect from February 1, 2019, under which subscribers will need to choose their own channels and packs. DTH providers like Airtel Digital TV, Dish TV, Tata Sky have already put out channel lists on their official websites.

So, what happens if subscribers do not choose their channel packs under TRAI’s new framework? TRAI previously said in a statement that the migration from the old framework after January 31, 2019 will be smooth and interruption-free and there will be no blackouts.

This will be communicated through SMS, on the company’s website as well as a dedicated channel number 999, which is running a demonstration video on how to choose channels and packs.

For consumers who have already paid for beyond monthly subscriptions, discussions are underway among DTH providers about the steps that will be taken. Though there will be no blackout, it does not look like the deadline will be pushed any further given the original deadline was December 28, 2018.
