Tata Sky, after implementing the new regulations brought forward by TRAI, has now announced special price slabs for customers with multiple TV connections. As part of this new plan, the DTH service provider is considering the network capacity fee (NFC), service charges and Tata Sky Binge service charges with the primary connection pack price. The move is aimed at offering relief to customers who use multiple TV connections and have separate connections. The company also announced that it will charge customers with variable prices for their multiple connections.

Tata Sky is trying to be transparent with charges, and it notes that network capacity fee on Tata Sky platform is Rs 153 per month for the first 100 channels, and Rs 23 per month for every slab of 25 additional channels. Both the prices are inclusive of all taxes. “One HD channel shall be treated equal to two SD channels for the purpose of calculating number of channels within the distribution network capacity subscribed,” the company confirms.
Tata Sky also offers details on variable pricing for multiple TV connections. If a customer has a primary connection pack price of up to Rs 100 then the secondary connection will be available at a monthly charge of Rs 150. If you have a primary subscription pack price between Rs 101 and Rs 200 then the secondary connection will be available at monthly charge of Rs 200. If your primary connection pack price exceeds Rs 750 then the secondary connection will be available for Rs 700 per month.
