MUMBAI: Currently, the Broadcasting ecosystem operates as part of a packaged bouquet environment where consumers pay a fixed amount and receive a pre-configured bouquet of channels. As per the TRAI mandate, the new tariff/pricing regime will come into effect from December 29th, 2018. In the new scenario, the power of choice shifts to the viewers who will have the freedom to choose their favourite channels and packs and pay only for what they want to watch. The new channel pricing regime also standardizes channel prices across all service providers / distribution platforms and ensures an open market operation that will lead todemand-led pricing in the category.

ZEEL, the No 1 television network of the country, leading the change agenda for the new pricing regime, was the first to roll out multiple customer-centric packs and demand-led channel pricing. Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Punit Misra, CEO, Domestic Broadcast Business, ZEEL said,“The new pricing regime by TRAI is a transformational structural reform that will go a long way in strengthening the sector with the creation of a uniform pricing model. It puts the power of choice with the consumer, giving him the flexibility to opt for channels and bouquets he loves and pay only for those. For over 26 years, it has been our commitment at ZEE to bring families together through the power of television. Our research on subscriber choice modelling and path-to-purchase understanding pointed towards consumers treating television as a family asset.The monthly purchase is optimized for everyday entertainment needs of all the family members.  Hence our approach towards pack configuration has been ‘family first’ - offering the top genres that contribute up to 85% of family viewing needs of our viewers on a daily basis.”

Championing the “Freedom of Choice”, ZEE promotes “Channels Ka Chunaav 2019” – a multimedia multi-stakeholder communication initiative, urging viewers to fulfil demands of all family members through Family Ki Suno, Zee Ko Chuno!Keeping with the topicality of elections and the power of choice that has the ability to change status quo, Zee, with this campaign, aims to be the catalyst for the transformational change expected across the TV ecosystem.
