DD Free Dish is having 8 general entertainment, 11 Hindi movies, 7 music, 21 news,  25 regional 9 Bhojpuri, 6 devotional, 1 Sports, 2 foreign, 2 HD and 11 Doordarshan state channels.

The new line up also includes 3 ‘test’ channels which the operator might have planned to allot by another auction. But the public broadcaster put that allotment process of vacant MPEG-2 slots in abeyance because of restrictions in the country due to coronavirus.
