New Delhi | Jagran Tech Desk: The country's leading DTH service provider Tata Sky is offering a list of benefits to its subscribers which rival companies are failing to deliver its customers. The Direct to Home service offers the cheapest set-top-box, a wide number of channels and affordable packs to its users. What comes as a huge relief to its customers, Tata Sky will not be charging anything more than just Rs 64 NCF (Network Capacity Fee). Another thing to note is that the new TRAI rules have capped NCF at rs 160. If you pay Rs 130 per month for NCF then you need to pay only Rs 52 extra for the secondary connection.

If you pay close attention to the plans of other DTH service providers, their multi TV connection plans are the highest. When it comes to the network capacity fee for multi TV connection of other service providers, Dish TV users have to pay Rs 50 for the secondary connection.

The users have to pay Rs 50 separately for the secondary connection in addition to Rs 130 (without tax). At the same time, Airtel charges its multi-TV connection users at Rs 90 NCF for a secondary connection.

Under new rules, subscribers cannot be charged more than 40 per cent of the base NCF of the primary connection for the NCF of the secondary connection.

With the new amendments in place, broadcasters, DTH and Cable TV operators can not include the channels priced at Rs 19 in any of the add-ons or bundled packs. The new rules are likely to come into effect from March 1, but with the lack of support from broadcasters, it will be interesting to see whether operators meet the deadline or not.
