Unfair practices of MOS
"The connectivity fees of Rs.130/ for 100 channels and rs.20 for every additional 25 channels is being misinterpreted as those 100 channels to be free channels. And distributors are deciding 75 free channels instead of the consumer. And pay channels can not be included." So you have to pay Rs. 20 for even a single channel you want to add.
As per the MyDen app developed by Den network you can have the combo offer they have prepared or alacarte. You can not have their combo offer and can not include the channels you need from alacarte.
In alacarte also full list of channels are not given.many of the popular channels are not available. Further the bouquets offered by braid casters are not available. All the region wise combo offer are not available. Particularly Kannada channels even news channel available are not included.
Any one who is out of his native state would like to be connected with his native through the TV channels of his state.
By such restrictions they are actually committing restrictive trade practices. And defeating the very purpose of the new regime. Further they have terminated abruptly only Kannada channels in sector-14 Gurgaon from the existing package since last week, in violation of the notification. Not restored even after filing a complaint within the time limit they themselves conveyed. The matter has already been brought to the notice of every authority that is competition commission. Ministry of consumer affairs, DOT, TRAI. But no action till date.
To be effective and true to the purpose of notification to be fulfilled in letter and spirit at least cost. The following system may be adopted. The connectivity fees should be based on number of channels opted. But it will be minimum Rs.130/ up to 100 channels. Region/language wise combo offers including national and international channels may be prepared and should be available for subscription in all regions. Subscriber should be free to decide the 75 channels he wants to subscribe in the first 100 channels other than the mandatory channels as per notification. Hope every authority mentioned above will look into it. And also initiate action against the violations already done and also in future. more
