Nine crore TV homes migrate to new tariff regime: TRAI chief

Telecoms regulator Trai has said nine crore out of 17 crore TV homes have made their channel preferences to onboard the new tariff regime, and it is constantly monitoring the situation to ensure that consumers do not face inconvenience. “The speed (of onboarding) has increased as per our data and we expect the rest of the people to also register their choice of channels soon,” Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) Chairman R S Sharma said.

Sharma, who is spearheading Trai’s new tariff and regulatory framework for broadcasting and cable services, said of the nine crore TV homes that have made their channel preferences clear, 6.5 crore are cable TV homes and 2.5 crore are DTH homes.

“Out of the total 17 crore TV homes (which includes 7 crore DTH homes and 10 crore cable TV homes), about nine crore homes have already registered their choice with the operators, which is a big number,” he said. Since DTH is a pre-paid model, as and when customers’ long and short duration packs come to an end, people will make channel selection, he added.
