Airtel Digital TV Starts Refunding Money
Meanwhile, Airtel Digital TV, which is their DTH arm, has stated that they will refund money for all their users, who had opted for long term plans before the implementation of the new cable TV rules.
The refund will be for those users, who had opted for long term plans under old cable TV rules, and now want to change over to the new plans and packs under the new Cable TV regime.
Users who didn’t switch over to the new plans for fear of losing money can now safely change over.
In case any user doesn’t change over to the new plans, then their accounts will be automatically shifted to the best fit plan, which resembles their average usage.
If that happens, then there can be blackout for some users, as not every pay channel is included in the best-fit plans.
