Only 16 channels of Doordarshan are compulsory, except for that you don’t need to take any free channel if you don’t wish to watch it. You can select 84 more channels (paid in your case) and the total amount payable by you will be 130+tax + the charges of all the paid channels and packages along with applicable tax. If you wish to watch more than 100 channels then for every additional 25 channels u need to pay additional rs 20+tax.

@Esmail, you mean, 84 channels from different broadcasters? Any number from mix geners? And still if My channel count is below 100, I just have to pay 130 +taxes??

Actually TRAI clarified that 25 channels of DD are mandatory, so yes you have a choice of 75 channels which can be of any broadcaster, both paid as well as free and individual or bundled. If you select all 75 as free to air channels then your total cost will be just 130+tax, if you select a mix of free and paid channels then your total will be 130+tax+ cost of paid channels+tax. Also the network capacity fee is for 100 SD channels, if you go for HD channels then each HD channel is counted as 2 SD channels. So… Read more »

No more HD access fee, that will be totally scrapped under the new tariff order.
