Direct to Home (DTH) operator Tata Sky is all set to rejig the LCNs of its English Entertainment genre channels cometh 2nd September which will see the LCNs of 10 English Entertainment channels change along with that of Hindi News channel Aaj Tak Tez. The sequence of placement of English Entertainment channels among the genre will remain the same but it will open up space for Tata Sky to rearrange Hindi Movies LCN placement which has been crunched due to the increase in the number of channels.
Tata Sky will be rejigging the LCN of following 11 channels effective 00:00 hours on 2nd September. Star World HD, Star World, Star World Premiere HD, Zee Cafe HD, Zee Cafe, Colors Infinity HD, Colors Infinity, Comedy Central HD, Comedy Central, Disney International HD, and Aaj Tak Tez channel numbers will be bumped up.
Aaj Tak Tez is getting a better LCN behind TV9 Bharatvarsh and will be jumping over 4 Hindi News channels behind which it is placed currently on LCN 590. Tata Sky had last year suggested TRAI to do away with the one-year lock in period since it was facing space crunch in the EPG for many genres where the number of channels has increased.
