TataSky is slowly becoming an expensive proposition to its customers. Agreed their quality is superior and so is their service as compared to competition, but that does not mean that they can do whatever they choose to and people will keep quiet.
First tata makes u pay a 1000 bucks for Standard installation* + installation warranty + activation charges while they always maintain that the hardware is Tata sky property. That when a regular installation shouldn’t cost more than 500, Rs300 if u DIY.
Second their policy suks bigtime. First they pull u in with offers , then they slowly show their magic!
I purchased their box when the 6months any bouquet free offer was on and that pack had a built in cost. I took the South Super Jumbo Pack promising all channels.
They first they carved out the Lifestyle Gold Pack (10 channels) Rs 30 per month, from the regular bunch channels that were supposedly promotional.
Today came the turn of the BBC pack or Lifestyle Silver Pack: Rs 30 per month and the ESPN/Star or Sports Platinum Pack at Rs 40 per month, and god knows what will happen in future.
Worse How do u club a News , Toon and an Entertainment channel together just because of the BBC tag?
The question is what happens to people like me or to the annual subscribers who, feel conned and feel like repeating Rageshwari Aunty by saying Cheating ! Cheating ! Cheating. Is it time we goto TRAI or consumer court? Even for the regular subscriber the math is wonky
Initial payment was South Super Jumbo Pack: Rs 350 per month. Now it is South Jumbo Pack: Rs 310 per month + 30 + 30 + 40+15 = 425 per month or maybe 380, if u don’t include the ten sports and either of BBC pack or lifestyle gold pack.
Im not including the Neo sports pack or Sports Gold Pack: Rs 30 per month. something the cable guy will offer at the rate of Rs 5 per channel.
For the price sensitive Desi Subscriber, life may not be so Jingalala after all!
