Trai NTO 2.0: These Are the Complete Pay TV Channels Available on DTH Platforms

Published by
Chakri K

The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) changed the landscape of broadcasting sector last year with the introduction of the National Tariff Order (NTO). The NTO 1.0 raised a lot of eyebrows in the industry because of several factors like sub-par implementation from operators, pricier channel scheme and not-so-impressive overall structure. However, Trai tweaked the NTO 1.0 and announced the National Tariff Order (NTO) 2.0

with several changes. The NTO 2.0 gave a slight relief to the users because it is reducing the monthly subscription price by a decent margin. The base NCF slab of Rs 130 now offers 200 FTA channels and subscribers still have the freedom to choose FTA channels of their own.

Broadcasters Continue to Offer Pay TV Channels Up to Rs 19

The Trai NTO 2.0 urged broadcasters not to include channels priced over Rs 12 in a bouquet. For example, Zee Entertainment Enterprises Limited is not allowed to include popular channels like ZEE Telugu which is priced at Rs 19 in a bouquet. This is the reason behind broadcasters moving against Trai regarding NTO 2.0.

In India, there are a total of 39 broadcasters offering more than 300 Pay TV channels. The Pay TV channel prices start as low as 0.10 and they go all the way up to Rs 19. DTH or Cable TV users can avail Pay TV channels by choosing them individually or by choosing the bouquets offered by the respective operators. Here are the Pay TV channels on offer right now with their prices and genre as per the new regulatory framework.
