Tata Sky is offering the first Andaman and Nicobar Islands specific DTH channel — DD Port Blair. Along with that, India’s leading DTH operator has also added ‘Jai Maharashtra’ back to its offerings. Just a few days back, Tata Sky added two new channels – News India 24×7 and Filamchi. News India 24×7 is available for everyone without any cost since it is an FTA (free to air) channel and Filamchi is a paid-for Bhojpuri movies channel. Now, customers of the DTH operator in Andaman and Nicobar Islands are going to get the service of a new channel called DD Port Blair.
