Frankly speaking, Sony can't compete the other 3 Hindi ECs in prime time slot. It has never ever won in that time slot. So if there is a merger, it can have the mature content slot from 5.30 to 8, then satire slot from 8 to 10.30. That way, it would help in catching views from both sides in 1 channel. Earlier we have seen Star Plus having good Tvr for shows from 6 to 7.30 slot. So this may work for Sony if they take up that slot.I Disagree with you regarding merger of sab tv and set as both have different content , sab tv is popular and comes regularly in top barc ratings they cater to comedy / drama youth genre . so it would be better if they both remain different channels though it would be better if sony reduces sab tv sd channel price .
Regarding rerun channel shutting down even i feel it would be good , it would be better only if the broadcasters take initiative keep channel price low of their main gec channel or their 2nd GEC Channel , otherwise shutting down of its rerun channel wont be right as people in rural wont get the channels -i do agree rural people do have right to get good content and latest content . even some of the urban people subcribe to rerun gec due to its lower pricing and they depend on online fr newer episodes or shows.
Regarding reruns, I feel rerun channels have lost what they were meant to be originally. 10 years ago, there would be serials running 3 years later on Zee Smile/Star Utsav than Zee TV/Star Plus. Now, you see the channel, there are always some 2 or 3 serials running throughout the day. Well that is ao silly, even if it fetches TRP (If we go for TRP, then even Bhagyas, Kasautii like regressive contents are OKAY, but it is not so).
