- Airtel also received a showcause notice from Trai for not following the smooth migration process
- The DTH arm of Bharti Airtel also announced new top-up packs based on Trai's pricing scheme
The new DTH tariff regime by Trai has created a lot of confusion among the Indian TV viewers. Consumers are confused on to which plan to opt to continue their TV services. Meanwhile, the DTH service providers are leaving no stone unturned to woo consumers and offer great value for money packs. Airtel is one of the many DTH operators. On Wednesday, Airtel India tweeted a new offer that provides complimentary access to all India vs New Zealand T20 series matches. “Airtel gifts its DTH customers complimentary access to all matches of the India VS New Zealand T20 series,” the DTH operator said in the tweet. For the unaware, India is currently touring New Zealand for a five-match ODI and three-match T20 series. While the ODI series already ended, the T20 series is currently going on with the first match won by New Zealand on Wednesday (February 6). Airtel announced that the entire T20 series could be viewed for free on the Airtel Digital TV platform.
