D2h Introduces New Policy for Multiple Connection Users, Slashes NCF Charges to Rs 50

The direct-to-the-home (DTH) service provider, D2h, has introduced a new Multi TV scheme to its subscribers who have two connections in their home. The sector regulator Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) had earlier left it to DTH providers whether they want to charge NCF on multiple connections or not. D2h has come up with a new policy under the Trai tariff regime. Going by the new policy, D2h will charge Rs 50 as NCF charges for every connection in your home, which is by far the cheapest compared to other DTH providers like Airtel Digital TV and Tata Sky. Airtel Digital TV revealed that it would charge Rs 80 as NCF charges for every secondary connection, while Tata Sky’s policy is very different compared to D2h and Airtel Digital TV. Sun Direct is yet to reveal Multi TV charges after the new Trai pricing scheme came into effect.

Flat NCF of Rs 50 for Second D2h Connection

The new pricing regime says that for a single connection, subscribers will have to pay Network Capacity Fee of Rs 130 exclusive of taxes which will get them 100 SD channels or 50 HD channels. On top of this, the subscribers will have to pay the content charges of the pay channels or bouquet. Now for people who have multiple connections of D2h won’t have to pay just double the amount in case you are wondering. Instead of that D2h subscribers will only have to pay Rs 50 exclusive of taxes as flat NCF. D2h has also highlighted that subscribers won’t have to stick to the same channels as the parent connection, although it will be entirely possible for them to mirror their original subscription, they will have full flexibility of choosing channels for the second connection.

Multiple Connection NCF and Content Charges Details

D2h on its website has further noted that on top of the flat NCF fee of Rs 50, subscribers will have to pay the content charges of the channels or bouquet which they opt. So, in totality, besides the bill of their original connection, subscribers will have to pay a sum of Rs 50 plus the content charges of the channels as the bill for their secondary connection. It is worth noting that the flat NCF of Rs 50 remains in the hands of D2h, and the operator can decide about it, but, and they stay as it is. So out of the total payment, which the subscribers pay, the NCF is kept by D2h, whereas the content charge is passed on to the broadcaster or the channel owner.

Tata Sky, Airtel Digital TV Also Reveal Multiple Connection Charges

Related to multiple connection news, other DTH service providers such as Tata Sky and Airtel Digital TV also came up with their pricing scheme. As we reported recently, Airtel Digital TV is charging Rs 80 as NCF charges for every additional connection, while Tata Sky’s policy is way different compared to other operators. When compared against each other, D2h is providing cheapest NCF charges for Multi TV users.
