TRAI norms and DTH

The purpose of bringing in new TRAI norms for all DTH platforms seems illogical.
I used to get the channels of my choice before this illogical dictum came into force at ₹ 710/- per month, but post TRAI (Totally Ridiculous And Idiotic) norms many channels have been shut off. On enquiry I was asked to access the site and make my own selection of channels. I was shocked to know that in order to view the channels I was viewing previously I have to pay ₹ 1230/-. How stupid and illogical? Did TRAI interfere with the pricing of DTH providers to benefit the customer or the increase the income of the providers?
Kindly roll back this dubious policy and free the customers from being fleeced & literally taking them for a ride. more

We, as citizens, are hapless since TRAI's redressal of grievances is around 2%. This recent order by TRAI is infructuous. The increase in this scenario is due to grouping of channels by both cable operators and channel providers. Since the diferent channels are grouped differently, viewers for forced to select more groups and thus ending up paying enhanced cost. Government and TRAI need to relook this and rectify the same, may be people revolution will force them to do this. more

TRAI has not applied their mind in this issue, now we see advertisements asking us to bond with the cable guys. Wonder what next the TRAI would like us to do. TRAI has received some gratification from the cable guys for this move. We are paying more for watching less number of channels. The channels which are free to air also has to be renewed frequently as it is shut down by the operator (TATA SKY in my case) and have to remind them to restart it almost on a daily basis. more  
TRAI's rule increase my cost of leaving. more
