Star India has added new channel packs for users willing to watch its Sports and English movies channels. Earlier, Star India didn’t offer its popular sports and English movies channels in any pack. Hence, subscribers, who wanted to watch these channels, had to purchase them along with Star’s Indian channels, TelecomTalks reports.

This also increased the fair on the monthly basis. In comparison with the old channel packs, the new packs will reportedly be available at a 30 percent lower price tag. The cited source claimed that the new channel packs are priced around Rs 140, which includes Rs 40 network fee. Previously, many DTH customers had to spend around Rs 200 per month to watch Star India’s six Sports and seven English channels in HD quality.
