Airtel Announces New Tariff Plan for Dish TV, Tata Sky, February 12: TRAI announced a new tariff order last month (NTO 2.0). This new tariff order will be effective from March 1, 2020. TRAI asked broadcasters to announce new channel prices on January 15. But afterwards, the broadcasters also appealed to the court for the TRAI decision, which was postponed by the court until February 12.
DTH service providers Tata Sky, Airtel Digital TV, Dish TV and Sun Direct can begin a new plan. Looking at the National Tariff Order (NTA 2.0) issued by TRAI last month, regulators have asked broadcasters to release new channel prices by January 30, 2020.
The National Tariff Order (NTO 1.0) was put into effect on April 1, 2019 last year. It was implemented with a four month delay instead of December 1, 2018. New national tariff orders may similarly be delayed. In accordance with a tariff order issued by the regulatory body on January 1, broadcasters were asked to declare a new channel fee by January 15, 2020, and there is a problem with the current court, which cannot be declared until February 12, 2020.
In NTA 2.0 (National Tariff Order), the broadcaster ordered the monthly fee for individual channels to be increased to Rs 12 instead of Rs 19. To implement this new tariff order, the user must pay the maximum fee for Rs 12 g for all channels. This decreases the monthly rent of the user. At the same time, you can show users 200 free broadcast channels instead of 100 with a monthly fee of at least Rs 130 (tax not included).
According to the new tariff order, the broadcaster should now announce new rates for bouquet packages and channels. Tata Sky can announce a new plan, which can be implemented from March 1, 2020, through any service provider Airtel, Dish TV.
