After TRAI new cable/dth tv regime all free & paid channels have same prices on all the platforms.
Here NCF or carriage fees or in simple terms base rental pack need to be paid. Which is max of Rs.153(for 100 channels) and charged almost similarly by all cable tv n DTH operator. Only Independent TV(previously Reliance Big Tv) charges Rs.59 as base fees for primary connection. For child connection mst operators are giving a Rs.50-80 discount.
Now lets come back to free to air channels slowly all operators are reducing prices of NCF for child connection or many are not charging free to air channels. Airtel has gone one step ahead by giving away all 230 free to air channels in one pack.
