- Sun Direct has also done away with its NCF charge thus making its subscription cheaper
- The provider is offering ROI packs with worthy channels for an economical solution
Sun Direct is a prominent DTH service provider in the South Indian region. The operator was also the first one to do away with the NCF charges to make its subscription plans attractive for the consumers. Previously, in our update, we had informed about the launch of new DPO packs on Sun Direct website which had increased the offering for Sun Direct subscribers, but it is known in the market that the provider was a bit late when it came to bundling HD channel packs. Later, Sun Direct had introduced new HD packs, but it was only a handful. However, now Sun Direct has added many more channel packs to its website, and these aren’t only HD packs but are also available in SD quality as well. Further on, these packs are available in various regional languages.
Channel Packs in Odia, Marathi and Bengali
In the latest iteration of its channel packs update, Sun Direct has added DPO packs in three new languages which were not previously divided in these many packs. In the channel packs listing, we were able to see the Bengali DPO Pack 1 for Rs 167.79 which bundled 172 channels. Similarly, there were more packs like Bengali DPO 2 pack for Rs 211.86, Odia DPO 1 pack for Rs 166.94, Odia DPO 2 pack Rs 211.01. Previously, there were also no packs in HD for Malayalam or Kannada, but this time around, in the listed plans we saw the HD Kannada DPO Pack 1 and HD Kannada DPO Pack 2 for Rs 263 and Rs 363 respectively. Similarly, Sun Direct has also listed the HD Malayalam DPO Pack 1 and HD Malayalam DPO Pack 2 for Rs 258.47 and Rs 338.13.
