Direct to Home (DTH) operator Sun Direct has recently started allowing potential new acquisitions to pick from either of the three models of Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) it offers namely the Entrustment Model, Outright Model, and Rental Model. While all of these three models has been available from Sun Direct’s end for a long time, DTH operators predominantly push the models wherein the ownership of the CPE remains with them while discounting the price of the CPE. One could earlier not choose the CPE model while booking a new connection through the website.
Sun Direct states that the Entrustment Model is the most popular and preferred model wherein Sun Direct owns the rights on all equipment and accessories.
SD connection under Entrustment Model costs Rs 1270 exclusive of taxes and package cost. HD connection under Entrustment Model costs Rs 1501 exclusive of taxes and package cost.
Sun Direct states that this model allows the customer to own a DTH connection set-top box and accessories with Sun Direct not owning the rights.
SD connection under Outright Model costs Rs 3,000 exclusive of taxes and package cost. HD connection under Outright Model costs Rs 3500 exclusive of taxes and package cost.
Sun Direct states that this model allows the customer to avail a new DTH connection – set-top box and accessories on a monthly rental basis with the customer required to pay a security deposit which is refundable.
SD connection under the Rental Model costs Rs 3,000 exclusive of taxes and package cost. HD connection under the Rental Model costs Rs 3,500 exclusive of taxes and package cost. In case you are wondering why the Rental Model and Outright Model have the same price even though the latter offers ownership of the CPE to the customer, the Rental Model includes a refundable security deposit of Rs 1500.
One can choose from any of Sun Direct’s curated packages or opt for the NCF pack at Rs 50 exclusive of taxes. Each and every model of the CPE scheme offers 1 year of warranty on the set-top box, free delivery, installation, and demo, SunNXT subscription-free and unlimited recording. You can either avail and subscribe the same online or register for a call back.
In case you are not aware, then Sun Direct recently slashed its Network Capacity Fee offering the cheapest NCF in the entire DTH industry. It’s probably the cheapest NCF across the entire gamut of Cable TV platforms as well in the country.
