Direct to Home (DTH) operator Dish TV has followed the footsteps of Tata Sky to offer recharge extension to keep customers connected and entertained. With Dish TV’s pay later service, customers can avail recharge extension at no extra cost.
Dish TV on Monday rolled out the extension offer and publicized it through its social media accounts. The DTH operator will be providing recharge extension for those who are not able to recharge their Dish TV account. Dish TV users can give a missed call at 1800-274-9050 to avail a recharge extension.
Dish TV in a statement said, “In these difficult times, you continue doing your bit by staying at home and we will do our bit by making sure that your are entertained and well-connected with the world even if your are not able to recharge your Dish TV for a few days. Just give a missed call at 1800-274-9050 to avail a recharge extension. Stay indoors, stay safe, stay informed, jab tak.”
Dish TV owned d2h however has not confirmed the rollout of the recharge extension offer. d2h notably is also not offering any service channels for free, unlike its parent Dish TV which is offering a range of services for its customers to help keep them entertained during the lockdown.
Dish Positive – Dish Positive has been launched by Dish TV to educate the public on coronavirus. It is offering verified news, safety tips, and tricks on coronavirus. The channel is also available on Watcho app and d2h.
Watcho 6 Month Subscription – According to a listing on the Dish TV website home page, it is offering a 6-month free subscription for its users to keep entertained during the lockdown. Dish TV had earlier on the launch of Watcho app, offered a similar offer wherein customers got 6-month subscription free followed by a paid subscription.
Free Service channels – DreamDTH had earlier on last Thursday reported the Dish TV initiative to offer 4 service channels free of cost to its customers. Ayushmaan Active, Fitness Active, Kids Active Toons, and Kids Active Rhymes are the 4 service channels that will be available free of cost.
33 Swayam Prabha channels – While DTH operators have agreed to air Panini, Sharda, and Kishore Manch channels for a period of three months to support students across India, Dish TV and DD Free Dish remain the only two DTH operators in India who provide the entire bouquet of MHRD run Swayam Prabha channels. Swayam Prabha channels in these tough times are going to help students across India complete their syllabus from home who cannot access online classes.
