TRAI on channels
TRAI has made a lot of recommendations on how channels should be distributed through cable TV and DTH. In short, a customer can choose a single channel and should not be forced to buy a channel pack for a single channel.

That is really a great move, DTH loot the users in name of channel pack. Every region suffers with junk channels which they won't see in their life time.

A study shows that most household use less than 50 channels. That is all they watch. Even my cablewala offers 250.

Yeah, many don't get the chance to watch most channels in the first place. We too pay 250rs/month and it has good no of channels

Pay per channel is good. It is the same as what pay per second did in mobile. It is a good thing for customers.

After the implementation of the scheme paid channel blocks like Sony, Viacom and Star took a hit. Their viewership went down. Good thing, no pay channels now.

Sony channels are too costly right? Heard that they are giving the channels for free during this IPL

To be honest, either they should show ads or ask for payment. Here they are doing both. Too many ads and too much payment per channels.
