The rejig in LCNs is one of the biggest on Airtel Digital TV ever since the New Tariff Order came into effect with Airtel moving 4 pay-Hindi GECs from major pay broadcasters.

For the unaware, the New Tariff Order has a 1 year LCN lock-in period barring distribution platform operators from changing the LCN of a channel within 1 year of an agreement.

Tata Sky has recently undertaken a mega LCN change which is being done genre by genre over the past few weeks. The operator had during the NTO 2.0 consultation flagged the lock-in period to TRAI asking it to be done away with it.
