DTH service providers in the country used to offer long term plans with additional benefits to their subscribers before the new tariff regime was implemented by TRAI. However, under the new rules, DTH operators are now providing cashback offers to serve as extra viewing time when users recharge for multiple months in a single go.
Under this new kind of long-term pack, Tata Sky, Dish TV, and D2h are providing free service to their subscribers which ranges from seven days of extra viewing time to 120 days of free subscription.
Tata Sky free one month service
Tata Sky is offering its consumers one month of free TV viewing service if they pay for 12 months of service in one go. The one-month free service will be provided in the form of cashback. The DTH service provider says that the one-month free recharge bonus will be credited to subscriber’s Tata Sky account within 48 hours of the recharge.
Also, even when the users pay for the complete year, they will have the option to add or drop channels anytime. Along with this, Tata Sky is giving users the option to temporarily suspend their account if required.
Dish TV free one month service
Dish TV has multiple long terms plans ranging from three months to one year. With three months of recharge, Dish TV subscribers can get 7 extra days of viewing time and six months of recharge provides 15 days of free service to the subscribers.
