Along with the above news, we had always informed you some days back that Tata Sky will no longer be providing its long term channel packs, like the six-month channel pack or the annual channel pack to the new subscribers, in order to save on subscription costs.
Luckily, Malyalam and Marathi channels are the only two regional language channel packs which will be available for semi-annual or annual channel packs for the newly subscribed customers of Tata Sky.
Earlier, Tata Sky subscribers could also go for SD Kannada Super, SD Kannada Value, SD Telugu Super, SD Kerala Super, SD Tamil Super, SD Telugu Value, Tamil Super Annual, SD Kannada Super Annual, SD Telugu Super Annual, and other packs for six-month or 12-month duration. It is to be noted that these conditions will not impact the existing Tata Sky subscribers who have already subscribed to a long term pack.
