In my case I had selected my Dishtv channel pack on 29-Mar, but that was never implemented as the dish was not realigned. Once the dish was aligned, I was automatically put back on some pack which ended up being Rs 150 more than the current. Yesterday sat through to check which channels were missing and there were quite a few. Whats more some sports channels have a lockin period.
Seems like we have to wait for Jio revolution or stick with Amazon & Netflix.

Trai finally accepts that the channel prices have gone up. Link

Apparently they are working on "a consultation paper" to reduce the tariffs now. In plain English I think they mean "we're working ass backwards to ensure the tarrif plans work the way they ought to have from the beginning." Glad to see something is finally happening here although I don't have my fingers crossed.

TRAI should enforce strict regulations to charge on per channel basis and stop "package" concept. I had two Sun Direct connections previously, retained only one for my daughter after the prices were revised.

Team, Isn't the new structure prepaid with effective from 1st Feb?

I am asking this because I was out of station from Jan and after the new structure have some, the local cable operator has hiked the monthly payment without my consent by adding some pay channels which i never want or watched. Now the total bill have come around Rs1800 for the last few months and I refused to pay. They are threatening with legal action. Earlier I was paying monthly bill, similiar to postpaid.
