Mumbai: Tata Sky has decided to withdraw its multi-TV plans from 15th June 2019. The company had introduced Multi TV plans in the after the rollout of new tariff order by TRAI,
A Tata Sky representative confirmed the move and said all connections will be billed independently from 15th June, even if they are currently under a multi-TV scheme.
“If you do not change your packs of secondary boxes, then post 15th June your prices of each box will be same as that of primary box price.“
So to have the prices of all the boxes in your budget we recommend you to change the pack of each box and control your budget.
“By this way you would be able to select whatever you want to watch on each TV and pay for that content only rather than paying higher for default primary content on secondary boxes,” a Tata Sky representative said.
On the other hand,DTH operators like D2h and Airtel Digital, continue to provide Multi TV benefits. D2h, for example, gives a flat network fee (NCF) of Rs 50 on all subsequent connections, while Airtel Digital gives a discount of Rs 50 on the NCF of subsequent connections.
The Tata Sky representative pointed out that from June 15, Tata Sky subscribers will be able to activate only those channels that they need on each of their connections, irrespective of whether they were taken under a multi-TV scheme or not.
In effect, this means that Tata Sky would not have its Multi TV scheme from 15th June.The reason for the move is not clear, but its is speculated that it might be due to compliances issue with the new tariff order of TRAI.
