Relief for Tata Sky Multiple Connection Subscribers as Provider Revises and Lowers Price Brackets

While D2h has a flat NCF and Airtel Digital TV levies a base NCF of Rs 80, Tata Sky’s pricing of secondary connection depends solely on the cost of your base connection

  • The new pricing brackets are much more attractive for the subscribers
  • Tata Sky multiple connections will mirror the channels of the primary connection

While the new Trai tariff regime set very specific guidelines about the prices of the channels along with the Network Capacity Fee and content charges, what it failed to introduce was a unified pricing system for multi-TV connections. As a result, every DTH operator came up with different policies for their subscribers with two or more than two TVs. Among all the other providers, Tata Sky’s policy regarding multi-TV has been a unique one as the subscriber’s monthly rental for the secondary TV will depend on the pricing of the primary TV subscription for the user. This means that a higher subscription cost for your main connection will also result in a higher subscription cost for your secondary connection. Previously, Tata Sky had introduced different pricing brackets detailing the cost for secondary connections, but now the provider has revised these price brackets.

New Pricing Brackets for Multiple Connections

The new price brackets for Tata Sky multi-TV outline that if you have a primary connection with a monthly rental of up to Rs 100, exclusive of the NCF, then you will only have to pay Rs 150 for the multi-TV connection. Similarly, a primary subscription with rental between Rs 101 and Rs 200 will spend Rs 200 on their secondary connection, a primary connection subscriber between Rs 201 and Rs 300 will pay Rs 250, a primary subscription between Rs 301 and Rs 400 will spend Rs 300, a parent subscription of Rs 401 to Rs 500 will pay Rs 400. Subsequently, primary connections with rental of Rs 501 and Rs 625 will pay Rs 500 for multi-TV connection, and the primary connection with rental between Rs 626 and Rs 750 will pay Rs 600 for multi-TV connection. Further, monthly subscription upwards of Rs 751 will pay Rs 700 for the secondary connection. It is worth noting that the primary connection cost being discussed here is exclusive of NCF.

Having said that, these prices are pretty much similar to what the current multi-TV policy of Tata Sky. Hopefully, Tata Sky listens to its subscribers and reduces the prices even further.

Discount on Channel Packs for Multiple Connection Holders

It is worth noting that Tata Sky is also going to extend the benefit to holders of multiple connections in other ways as well. The channel packs of Tata Sky will also be available for a lower price for the holders of a secondary Tata Sky connection. For example, Hindi Lite channel pack of Rs 295 will be up for a subscription at Rs 150, and also the Hindi Basic Pack of Rs 334 will bear the same price. The Family Kids pack of Rs 365 will have a price tag of Rs 200, Family sports of Rs 456 will be available for Rs 300, Family kids sports pack of Rs 464 will be available for subscription at Rs 300, while the Premium sports English pack of Rs 522 will be available Rs 300. On the same lines, HD channel packs of Tata Sky will also be available for a lower price.

DTH by Teledyne from Surya Nagar, Kolkata-700040.

It asked broadcaster to price its channels from 0.25 to 19rs basing its high prices are bcz of saas bahu fully advertising broadcasters. Soon this will be corrected by market.
