MUMBAI: DTH operator Sun Direct is now allowing subscribers to select up to 155 channels for a monthly network capacity fee of Rs 130/- plus applicable taxes.

Sun Direct is the first DTH to officially declare NCF allowing more than 100 channels along with the removal of the additional slab. The operator has been offering almost the entire FTA channels bouquet available on its platform on complementary basis with the Rs 130 NCF base pack from the start of the new tariff order.

While most operators have declared Rs 130 as NCF for 100 channels, most of them have been offering hundreds of FTA channels on a complimentary basis with discounted NCF on bundle packs.

The DTH operator had on 24 January declared its network capacity fee days ahead of the switch over to the new tariff order. The network capacity fee payable monthly back then was set at Rs 130/- plus applicable taxes for 100 SD channels. Additional slab NCF was set at Rs 20/- plus applicable taxes for the next 25 SD channels.
