The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) recently announced a new pricing regime for TV which will come into effect starting February 1, 2019. TV viewers can now opt to pay only for the channels they want to watch.
Airtel Digital TV has now also announced the new pricing of the channels. This will enable customers to easily switch their plans on Airtel website or the My Airtel App or by calling the customer care team. Airtel is now also allowing its users to opt for their favourite channels with just a QR code scan on their television screen.
Customers can make their own plans or select from a range of recommended plans as per the new TRAI guidelines on channel number 998 on Airtel digital TV. They can view the complete list of channels along with its a-la carte price as well as the broadcaster packs. They can also opt for the Airtel value plans which have been specially designed for customers based on their current channel selection or current monthly recharge value.
After the channel or pack selection, customers have to just scan the QR code and send it to 54325 and the pack will automatically get activated starting February 1.
To scan the code, customers have to use their smartphone camera. In case their phone camera does not support QR scanner, customers can download any free QR scanner app from the Playstore or Apple store and get started. A quick demonstration video of how to select the channels and plans is also available on channel no 999 on Airtel TV.
