Dish TV Lists HD Add-On Packs Following the Release of Combo and SD Add-On Packs

Dish TV, which is a prominent DTH provider had announced its SD add-on packs on its site, and now the provider has launched HD add-on packs as well

By February 14th, 2019 AT 4:38 PM
  • Some of the HD add-on packs include English Movies and News HD at Rs 101, English Entertainment HD at Rs 62, Kids HD at Rs 23
  • In a related development, Trai has extended the deadline for migration to new Trai based plans

The Telecom Regulatory authority of India (Trai) introduced the new mandate which changed a lot of pricing and regulatory measures for both consumers, DTH providers and the cable operators. The consumers were forced to migrate to the new Trai based plans whereas DTH operators had to comply with the new norms. Dish TV was one of the first of the many DTH operators to announce its channel packs and their pricing, and soon after that, other DTH providers followed. The operator has recently announced its new combo and add-on packs as well. It is worth noting that although subscribers are free to choose all of their channels under the new scheme by Trai, the add-on or combo packs which are present in the DTH providers’ portfolio will help them make an easier choice and further they will be able to enjoy much more channels at a discounted price at times.


Dish TV HD Add-On Packs Details and Pricing

On checking the Dish TV website, you will find that under the add-on packs section, there a lot more HD packs now than before. Dish TV has recently introduced the HD add-on packs of English Movies and News HD at Rs 101, English Entertainment HD at Rs 62, Kids HD at Rs 23, Infotainment and Lifestyle HD at Rs 51, Hindi Entertainment HD at Rs 133, Hindi Movies and News HD at Rs 80, All Hindi HD at Rs 197, English Cricket HD at Rs 57. The HD add-on packs are also available in regional languages for Dish TV subscribers. These add-on packs include Bangla HD for Rs 71, Marathi HD for Rs 70, Tamil HD for Rs 57 and more packs in Malayalam, Telugu and Kannada.

To recall, Dish TV had previously announced new add-on packs, but they were only available in SD. These SD add-on packs include English Movies and News for Rs 72, English Entertainment for Rs 42, Kids for Rs 27, Infotainment and Lifestyle for Rs 24, Hindi Entertainment for Rs 103, All Hindi Pack for Rs 134, Top Scorer pack for Rs 56, English Cricket Rs 42 and Hindi Cricket Rs 36.

Trai Extends Deadline for Migration Process

The last update from Dish TV had noted that it would complete the migration process for all its subscribers by February 7th. However, Trai has pointed out that almost 40% of the total cable TV subscribers have migrated to the new Trai based plans. As per the latest direction by Trai, the date has also been extended to March 31, 2019, for the subscribers who have not yet made their channel selections. As such, there is now ample time for the subscribers to make the switch. Another notification by Trai has directed the DTH operators to continue with the long duration packs, meaning that now Dish TV will also have to continue providing services to the long duration subscribers who have not yet made their channel selections.
