The three new channels from Tata Sky are the major channel additions in nearly a month with Tata Sky previously adding Awakening and Zee Picchar on March 3. In February, the company added Sahara Samay, R9 TV and Nandighosa TV.

Notably, the channels have arrived on the day when the government of India eased restrictions on several sectors including DTH services.
