But since the switchover on February 7, nearly 2%-2.5% consumers have reportedly opted for the FTA package without pay channels.“The data from LCOs are being collated.
KOLKATA: The switchover to a new tariff regime in cable television has seen around 60,000-75,000 consumers in Kolkata exit pay channels and opt only for the free-to-air package, a cause for anxiety to both multi-system operators (MSOs) and broadcasters.
The regulation does not prohibit service providers from offering discounts or lower NCF for additional connections at the same address.
