- Smart Packs from Tata Sky are aimed at basic TV viewers
- Tata Sky Smart Packs also come bundled with FTA channels
Ever since it accepted Trai’s new tariff regime, Tata Sky has been launching new channel packs so that the subscribers can choose from a wide range of options. The DTH company has now introduced ten new Smart Packs in regional languages and these packs come bundled with FTA channels as well. DTH Providers right now are launching new channels packs every now and then, but they’re not providing exact information whether the plans come bundled with FTA channels or not. That’s not the case with Tata Sky as it clearly stated the Smart Packs would offer bundled FTA channels and the prices mentioned in the article are excluding the taxes. The Smart Packs from Tata Sky start at Rs 206 but do make a note that they’re aimed at users who watch only specific channels as a DTH operator can not offer a large number of channels at affordable prices under the new tariff regime.

Tata Sky Launches Two New Broadcaster Packs
There is also no lack of broadcaster packs on Tata Sky’s dashboard. Although we believe that the recommended packs by the provider are the best way to go, Tata Sky’s extensive range of broadcaster pack will allow the subscribers to make flexible choices regarding their channel selections. In the newly-debuted broadcaster packs for Tata Sky, first is the Sony Happy India South B pack which is available for Rs 29.5 and the second is the Turner Family HD pack which is available for Rs 14.75.
