Dish TV Continues to Add New Subscribers Every Month
Dish TV is already the leading DTH operator in India and it continues to grow with every passing quarter. In the quarter that ended on March 31, 2019, Dish TV added a total of 47,000 new subscribers which increased its overall subscriber base. Alongside Dish TV, Tata Sky also added new users and its revenue was up by nearly 9%. Thanks to the new Trai tariff mandate, DTH operators are witnessing increased ARPU and the subscribers are also joining in a good number, unlike what analysts expected that they might switch to OTT platforms.
