How to select channels as per TRAI’s new rules for DTH operators. After the TRAI’s new DTH and cable TV guidelines, you now have to select the preferences of your TV channel on your respective cable service provider platform. All DTH operators like Dish TV, Tata Sky and Airtel Digital TV have announced the pricing of their channel pack and individual channels. In the case of Dish TV, the operator has not bothered customers for channel selection and now the company has pre-selected your channel package according to your old plan which you had selected.
If you are not happy with their channel selection, Dish TV allows you to choose your base pack like other DTH operators and add on the combo. To remind you, the new policy of TRAI came into effect from February 1. After these new guidelines, consumers have benefitted because they can now pay for the channels they want to see. TRAI has also launched a channel selector app, where you can get an idea of your TV bill based on the channels you select.
Like all other DTH service providers, Dish TV consumers can also choose channel packs in three different ways. Either you can call Dish TV customer service, use the My DishTV app or go to the Dishtv.in website and choose it from there using your login credentials.
