100 pay or free TV channels for Rs 153month: Trai
Times of India, January 14, 2019

NAGPUR: In a bonanza for TV viewers, whether cable or direct to home (DTH), the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) has channels by paying just Rs. 153.40 per month (including GST). According to a Trai press communique, consumer should choose these 100 channels before January 31 as the new system will start from February 1.

As per Trai, the base pack does not include high definition (HD) channels. However, some media agencies have reported that HD channels can also be chosen and one HD channel will be equivalent to two non-HD channels. Consumer should enquire with their service provider.

They can also clear their doubts by calling up 011-23237922(AK Bhardwaj) and 011-23220209 (Arvind Kumar) or sending and e-mail to advbcs-2@trai.gov.in or arvind@gov.in. Another major decision taken by Trai is restricting the maximum price of channel to Rs 19 per month.

It also said that people can choose channels à la carte and need not opt for channels that are bunched together.
