Less than a week after Dish TV run Direct to Home (DTH) operator d2h revised its Network Capacity Fee to offer a 2 slab based NCF system, in another revision, the DTH operator has now placed a three slab based NCF system for its customers.
On 2 March, d2h had revised its Network Capacity Fee in line with Tariff Amendment Order, 2020. The DTH operator had announced a four slab based NCF system wherein the NCF for the first 200 channels was Rs 130 excluding taxes. For every additional 10 channels, d2h announced a 4 slab based NCF table with the maximum NCF capped at Rs 160 excluding taxes.
However, the DTH operator went on to revise its Network Capacity Fee the very next day when Dish TV revised its Network Capacity Fee. Both announced a NCF of Rs 130 for the first 200 channels, while the NCF for over 200 channels was declared as Rs 160 excluding taxes.
d2h in another flip-flop has again revised its Network Capacity Fee and switched to a three slab based NCF system. According to the listing on the d2h website, the NCF for the first 200 channels will be Rs 130 excluding taxes, while the NCF for 201 to 220 channels will be Rs 150 excluding taxes. The NCF for over 220 channels has been declared as Rs 160 excluding taxes.
While the d2h website shows a three slab based NCF table, Dish TV NCF remains unchanged. Dish TV continues to offer a two slab based NCF system. It is unclear whether Dish TV and d2h will offer different NCF.
The DTH operator has also added a NCF FAQ on its website. According to it, the recharge date of the subscription will be adjusted due to the change in NCF in line with the monthly MRP. d2h is in the process of revising the monthly MRP of the subscribed combos as per the new NCF Policy. There could be changes in the monthly MRP of the current subscribed Combo. d2h will inform any change in the monthly MRP of the Combo in advance through SMS and other methods.
