The popular Direct-to-the-Home service provider, Tata Sky, has now introduced a slew of HD Add On/Mini Packs at a starting price of just Rs 5. This move from Tata Sky comes after the introduction of Tata Sky Regional packs which starts at Rs 7 per month. Coming to the newly introduced Tata Sky Add-Ons, there are a total of 21 packs comprising of both HD and SD channels. That said, the subscription for HD Add On pack differs compared to that of the SD pack. For example, Tata Sky has a Cricket Hindi HD pack priced at Rs 42 and a standard Cricket Hindi pack which also costs Rs 42 per month. So before activating any of these Add On packs from Tata Sky, compare the prices between the HD and SD packs as some broadcasters are charging the same price for their HD and SD channels. Notably, Tata Sky is also calling these Add On packs as Tata Sky Mini packs.
