Airtel Digital TV Introduces Missed Call System for Subscribing to New Channels

Airtel Digital's TV new feature will allow the subscribers to add channels to their subscription by giving a missed call to a specific number

  • Subscribers will have to give a missed call to 9154052 followed by the 3 digit LCN number
  • Previously the subscribers had to send an SMS to add channels to their subscriptions

In the post-Trai-tariff regime days, the DTH industry is undergoing a change of its own. After the implementation of the new tariff regime, the subscribers of the DTH and cable TV services are switching their service providers, and the companies are trying hard to lure these subscribers. To do that, companies like Airtel Digital TV are launching new offers, channel packs and more. In addition to this, there are also a handful of services which streamline the customer’s experience on the DTH platform and Airtel Digital TV has recently implemented that. The DTH wing of Bharti Airtel has introduced the missed call system for subscription to any channel. Here are all the details you need to know about it.

Airtel Digital TV New Missed Call Subscription System

According to this latest update, Airtel Digital TV has introduced the missed call system to subscribe to any channel available on the DTH platform. Previously, the subscribers had to send an SMS to the DTH provider through their phone to subscribe to any channel. They were required to send an “Add LCN” SMS along with the LCN number of the channel to add any specific channel to their subscription. But, owing to this new service, now subscribers will simply be able to add channels by giving a missed call to 9154052### where the last ### Represents the LCN Number of that channel. For example, if you would like to subscribe to Star Sports 1, then you would have to give a missed call to 9154052277, where 277 is the LCN of the Channel.

Airtel Digital TV Discounted STB Prices

In another move to lure the new customers to its DTH platform, Airtel Digital TV has also slashed the prices of its set-top boxes. This new price cut is applicable on both the HD and SD version of Airtel Digital TV set-top boxes. Airtel Digital TV has announced that it will be bringing down the prices of the HD and SD set-top boxes by as much as Rs 200. This new move would help the DTH operator in attracting new customers for its service. Much similar to Airtel Digital TV, Tata Sky has also slashed the prices of its HD and SD set-top boxes as it will help the subscribers in reaching more subscribers with a much affordable STB price.

Airtel Digital TV 6 New Channel Packs

Recently, Airtel Digital TV has also introduced 6 new channel packs for its subscribers. These moves will help the operator in going forward with a consumer-centric vision. Airtel Digital TV had introduced six new long-term channel packs for the subscribers which come in either 6-months or 12-months subscription options. These channels packs include Hindi Value SD Pack, UDP Packs, Gujarat Value Sports SD Pack, Gujarat Mega SD Pack, Gujarat Value Sports HD and Gujarat Mega HD.
