DTH users can get Facility of portability like as mobiles
Direct to Home (DTH) Service Providers, customers who do not like the service of the companies or are going to hire a new company will soon be able to enjoy the DTH portability. Customers will no longer need to buy a new setup box, rather they will be able to switch from the same setup box to service other companies.
Just as mobile customers have got the facility of portability, similarly DTH customers are also going to get it. TATA SKY, DISH TV, AIRTEL DTH users will soon be able to take advantage of this.
The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has completed lab testing of the interoperable setup box. TRAI has said that it has issued a new consultation paper on interoperable set-top boxes for digital TV broadcasting services. Through this, suggestions have been sought from the stakeholders of the industry. Suggestions have also been sought regarding software, cable operators etc. TRAI has sought an opinion from all the concerned parties until December 9.
TRAI said in a statement that the growth of the DTH industry has suffered due to lack of DTH portability. Along with this, the lack of this service among different companies in this sector also exposes the technician shortage. Portability will strengthen the freedom of customers to choose, along with it will also reduce the open market and e-waste. ‘
It is to be known that the rising prices of STBs, the rising cost of replacement and quality of STBs etc. directly affect the customers. In such a situation, if TRAI implements this, then customers will get a chance to choose the best service provider and there will be less burden on the pocket.
It is known that mobile customers have got the facility that they can take services of other companies without changing SIM. For this, they have to pay some amount. However, whether DTH customers will be charged for portability after the launch of this service is not yet clear.
