Posted in:

Direct to Home (DTH) operator Dish TV has yesterday revised its Network Capacity Fee to comply with Tariff Amendment Order 2020 becoming the latest DTH operator to comply with the amended regulations. Dish TV owned d2h, on the other hand, has removed its four slabs based NCF within a day of its introduction.

Dish TV revises NCF in line with NTO 2.0; d2h removes four slabs based NCF

Dish TV will charge ₹ 130 + Taxes (₹ 153.40 incl. Taxes) per month for the first 200 channels for primary connection. The network capacity fee for channels greater than 200 will be up to ₹ 160 + Taxes (₹ 188.80 incl. Taxes) per month. The channel count includes all FTA + Paid Channels (except DD Channels).

The Multi TV NCF policy of Dish TV remains unchanged. Dish TV will charge a flat NCF of Rs 50 + Taxes. Subscribers will have the option to take any channel/bouquets available on the platform. Subscribers will be offered the mirror channels but will have the option to take any channel/bouquets he/she wants.

d2h which had on Sunday rolled out four slabs based NCF system has discontinued the newly introduced system to adopt the NCF system followed by other DTH and cable operators. d2h will now have a similar primary connection NCF policy to other companies and offer only two slabs based NCF system wherein customers will have to pay up to Rs.160 + Taxes (Rs.188.80 incl. Taxes) per month for channels greater than 200.

With Dish TV revising its network capacity fee, all DTH operators have complied with the amended regulations which leave other MSOs and broadcasters to comply with the amended regulations. The reduction in NCF will reduce the TV bills of customers, however the real effect will only be seen when the broadcasters publish the revised bouquets compliant with the new bouquet formation rules.
