News Source: Complaint of Mr. Arun who is subscriber of Dish TV
Dish TV India's First DTH Service, Now start charging amount from free to air (DD Direct Plus) channels. Although these channels are already free via DD Direct Plus platform. But Now if you are thinking to create own pack by "pick-by-channels" then don't think it because now for every channel you will have to pay Rs.5. Even for Doordarshan channels you will have to pay Rs. 5 for each channel.
It means if you would like to watch DD Direct Plus channels on Dish TV then you may pay about Rs.5 X 59 = Rs.295 Only for FTA Channels. ( Rounded figure only)
It is not about Dish TV although All DTH Services are charging money for FTA channels, even if you want to watch Doordarshan National channel then you have to pay Rs.5. charges are different different DTH Services.
Mr. Arun who is inform us about this problem because he want to subscribe pack "Pick-by-channels" for minimize monthly expanse but when he check DTH websites, he shocked. This service is only for update on website and no use for customer. if they pay higher.
Mr. Arun said "I think TRAI should take any step for consumers because after digitilization it is very hard to watch Television in my both Rooms, due to high cost of monthly subscription charges."
