After an extraordinarily long a delay finally Make My pack or A la Carte DTH has arrived in India.
DTH was supposed to give people the choice and power on what he sees , but for an extended period of time , thanks to a weak corrupt or clueless TRAI, which has never been able to enforce the rules on the operators has finally cracked the whip. TATA Sky has been the first operator who has introduced an Make my pack.
Finally this deadline of TRAI has been adhered to and hope that more operators come with full a la carte packages soon , so that there is some real choice and competition and dth may just become a much more a viable option over cable.
1. Pay only for channels that you watch 2. Freedom of choice. Make your own selection/pack
This is great news for people who view a few specific channels , but land up paying for all channels, and especially for those who avoid sports channels who will end up saving and paying from 150 to 175 per month to view channels of their choice.
How does Make My Pack work?
All channels on Tata Sky are now available on a-la-carte basis. This means you can choose any channel of your choice and pay only for that channel. You can either create your pack with only individual channels for a minimum subscription of Rs 150 or mix-n-match your existing TruChoice packs with individual channels. The subscribers on old packaging can also select additional channels on a la carte basis.
