The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) did publicise new rules for the broadcasters.

At present, the rules state that the broadcaster will only pay for those channels that they desire to watch.

The new rates policy gives liberty to the Audiences to choose their tariff packs rather than the one offered by the DTH or cable operators.

CARE ratings suggest that TRAI’s new tariff rules might raise DTH bill. However, there can be a reduction in the total amount in the statement if the operator chooses the channels that he sights daily.

There are two scenarios in which the difference in TRAI’s offer can be visible. Scene 1, a person pays a bill of 400-500 and sights 800 SD channels. In scene 2, views choose a chain of mixed genres (limited choosing).

It is visible that viewers were able to view more channels in scene 1 as compared to stage 2 that is before the TRAI’s order.

TRAI has extended the deadline for viewers till 31st March to view their old channels as it was until they choose their new pack.

After 31st the TRAI will migrate to the “Best Fit Plan” for the broadcasters.

Reports suggest there might be a unification among the multi-system operators (MSOs) and local cable operators (LCOs) after new tariff.

The unpopular channels may go off the air as per the selection by the broadcasters in the new TRAI plan.
