The TRAI introduced a new framework for cable and DTH operators earlier this year. The changes mean users now need to choose individual channels, or packs of their choice. As a result, users will only have to pay for channels they want to watch. And to make the process simpler, DTH operators like Tata Sky have made it simpler to modify channel packs.

You can also do it using the Android or iOS app, the procedure is very similar to the web interface. Lastly, Tata Sky also allows you to send an SMS to add packs. Say you don’t have ZEE Movies in your channel pack, you can turn on the TV and navigate to the channel.
