Tata Sky introduces the world’s first ‘Daily Recharge’ voucher at Rs. 8

By April 9th, 2015 AT 3:07 PM

In yet another first, Tata Sky,  introduces the first ever ‘Daily Recharge,’ voucher empowering subscribers to pay only for the days they watched TV. This pioneering concept allows a minimum recharge value starting at Rs.8/-, making it the smallest denomination of recharge voucher in the television viewing sector globally.

This innovation by Tata Sky puts the subscriber in control of his/her TV viewing expenses. There are a substantial number of subscribers who pay a monthly charge, but for some reason or another are unable to view TV on a daily basis. Tata Sky’s Daily recharge now enables them to now choose when to pay for their TV viewing. For a large part of the population, they can economize and re-charge their set top box on days when electricity is available, or when they are back from vacation. Similarly, they can decide on days when not to recharge for example during exam days or when travelling away from home.

Commenting on the revolutionary concept, Mr. Harit Nagpal, MD & CEO, Tata Sky, said: “We are confident that the introduction of Tata Sky’s ‘Daily Recharge’ will gain traction across the nation. The ‘Daily Recharge’ option available at Rs. 8, 10, 20, 50 and 100 enables us to put power in the consumer’s hands to choose their level of convenience. It also elevates the DTH sector by redefining the pace of digitization and reach to markets nationwide.”

With the understanding that there is a demand in smaller towns and villages for bite sized consumption (much like shampoo sachets and small sized mobile recharges), the ‘Daily Recharge’ card enables Tata Sky to make inroads into these untapped markets. Moreover, with digitization phase III still a year away, this plan should help accelerate acceptance of DTH sector in India.
How it works: Tata sky Subscriber è Decide to watch TV => Purchase the Daily Recharge card from a nearby store => Scratch and SMS the number given from a registered mobile number => Enjoy television viewing for the day.
