After the new DTH and Cable TV guidelines from TRAI, you are now required to select your TV channel preferences on your respective cable service provider platform. All DTH operators such as Dish TV, Tata Sky, and Airtel Digital TV have announced their channel packs and pricing for individual channels. In case of Dish TV, the operator hasn’t troubled customers for the channel selection and for now the company has pre-selected your channel package as per your old plan that you had opted.
