Posted in:

Direct to Home (DTH) operator Sun Direct has today revised its network capacity fee (NCF) to offer industry lowest prices in the DTH market at Rs 50. The change kicked into effect early morning which is reflective on the website. The prices of the curated packages however continue to remain the same as they always offered deep discounts compared to other DTH operators.

Sun Direct will now charge a maximum of Rs 59 inclusive of applicable taxes as its network capacity fee. The network capacity fee will be the same whether you choose less than 200 SD channels or more than 200 SD channels.

Sun Direct has further reduced the multi-TV network capacity fee as well in line with the TRAI NTO 2.0 regulations which mandates capping of the multi-TV NCF at 40% of the primary connection.

The reduction in primary connection NCF mandated Sun Direct to revise multi-TV NCF which now stands at Rs 23.60 inclusive of applicable taxes.

The multi-TV NCF again is capped at Rs 23.60 irrespective of you choosing less than 200 SD channels or more than 200 SD channels. Pertinent to note that the cost of the curated package continues to more or less remain the same as Sun Direct has since the inception of the New Tariff Order offered deep discounts on its curated packages.
