Pay Direct to Home (DTH) operators Sun Direct, Dish TV, and Tata Sky have updated the revised MRP of Sony Pictures Network India’s Happy India Packs that have been impacted by the shutdown of AXN and AXN HD shutdown.
The listings on the website of the respective DTH operators now reflect the revised pricing effective 1st July. Dish TV and Tata Sky updated the prices post the shutdown of AXN and AXN HD shutdown on the same day whereas Sun Direct has updated the revised pricing on its website yesterday.
SPNI has had to revise the MRP of 14 Happy India Packs due to the shut down of AXN and AXN HD which have impacted the offerings in these bouquets in line with regulatory compliances. The bouquets have seen a drop in price between Rs 2.2 – Rs 4.4 depending upon the bouquet.
This is the second such revision from SPNI’s side in the last 3 months. The first one came in April post the shut down of MIX, Sony ESPN, and Sony ESPN HD which impacted 24 Happy India Packs. The same reduction is already live on Tata Sky, Sun Direct, Airtel Digital TV, Dish TV, and D2h.
At the time of filing this story, Airtel Digital TV and D2h remain the last DTH operators to update the new pricing. Interestingly, D2h a brand of Dish TV hasn’t updated the pricing despite its parent Dish TV doing it the same day the revised pricing went live. Both Airtel and D2h have however, taken down AXN and AXN HD from the respective bouquet listings, but are yet to update the revised pricing. The same is likely to happen in due course.
