Airtel Digital TV, India’s third-largest Direct-to-Home (DTH) operator has added one new channel and removed two channels from its platform. The operator in recent weeks has consistently tweaked its offerings to suit the viewing patterns of its users. The operator late last week had added “first-of-its-kind” TV channels such as Aakash EduTV – JEE and Aakash EduTV – NEET targeting students preparing for medical and engineering entrance exams. Airtel Digital TV has now added one new channel ‘Bansal News’ to its platform. However, the DTH operator has also removed two channels including ‘Sahara Samay’ and ‘Sahara Samay Rajasthan’.
