In a surprising move, TataSky has added 6 HD channels on its DTH platform taking the total HD channel count on the platform to 24. The new channels are Life OK HD, ZStudio HD, CNBC TV Prime HD, Sun HD, Gemini TV HD and Sony Six HD on channel numbers 108, 348, 512, 703, 749 and 420.
TataSky had been struggling with HD capacity in the past and seem to have overcome the technical restrictions limiting it from adding new HD channels on its platform. The operator also added India’s first 3D on demand movie channel showing movies like Avengers and Planes in 3D for customers having 3D capable TVs on 31st December 2013.
The addition of these 6 HD channels should also pacify many subscribers who had been upset with the operator’s last move, where it added 3 HD channels (Star World Premiere HD, HBO Defined & HBO Hits) under the specials category so as to avoid giving those channels as part of the Mega HD pack which promises all current and future HD channel availability. The new channels have been added as regular channels and should be available to the subscribers of the Mega HD packs.
