Set top box (DTH) Portability in India

Set-top box portability in IndiaOne set top box is all you need to buy, whoever your DTH service provider is! Soon to come, the portable DTH Connection!

This scenario is very common in households today. Get a new service provider for your DTH connection and you have to go for a new set top box, new registration numbers and new rules and regulations.

It was the same with the mobile industry, as well some years ago! To change the service providers meant new numbers and the works! That has now changed and now, DoT (Directory of Telecommunications) has just said that set top boxes will become portable from one service provider to another. That means:

  1. No changing of set top box
  2. No changing of registration numbers
  3. The amount spent on the set top box (anything from 1700 to 2200) which is non refundable, will now be a onetime exercise!
  4. This means you can switch the service provider/cable operator with just a card change and not a set top box change.

How soon will this become possible? Well, the CDoT (Centre for Development of Telematics), under the Department of Telecommunications, has already created a sample piece to test the inter-usage among service providers. Once it proves how well portability can be achieved, the economic and commercial viability will be checked along with work ability issues across the nation.

Either way, a portable dth connection is very much in the cards now.

The year 2016-2017 saw several challenges and disruptions thrown up by the government.

One such company is the Sun TV Network, India’s largest media group with 33 TV channels that touch the lives of over 96 million households across India. Today, the network’s reach extends to 27 countries which include the USA, Canada, Europe, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand.

Sun Direct DTH continuous push towards raising technical standards, to bring up transmission finesse to international levels, while at the same time pricing its product very competitively have increased its market share considerably. Today, a rising consumer level and the people’s solid banking on the Sun Network, have enabled the it being ranked 27th in the BrandZ’s top 50 most valuable Indian Brands. A maiden entry so to speak!
