- TRAI extends channel selection deadline to March 31.
- The authority has also directed all DTH/Cable operators to create a “Best Fit Plan”.
- The Best Fit Plan is for users who have not yet migrated to the new channel selection scheme.
While the authority recently announced that the migration of existing TV connections to the new scheme is going well, with 9 crore TV viewers out of 17 crores already being migrated to the new regime, it has extended the deadline for complete implementation of the new structure till March 31. Additionally, TRAI has introduced a new “Best Fit Plan” option that all Distribution Platform Owners (DPOs) need to create for those users who have not yet exercised their option to select channels and create packs by themselves.
