| TATASKY Change in Base Package Pricing |
With an increase in Service Tax announced as part of the Union Budget, all base packs on Tata Sky will undergo a change in price.
This change is being effected in phases.
Wef 4 April 2012, the first phase of this activity goes live with a change in the pricing of TruChoice packs as follows:
CURRENT MONTHLY PRICE
REVISED MONTHLY PRICE
South Sports Pack
Dhamaal Mix Pack
Supreme Sports Kids Pack
Grand Sports Pack
Please note that there is NO CHANGE in the entry offer pricing. So a new acquisition can still opt for Tata Sky at Rs 1590.
However new acquisition packs are to be chosen at the time of account creation & installation scheduling.
Couple of other points:
- The price change in the above packs is for all new acquisitions
- Existing subscribers on the packs for more than 6 months, will also undergo a price change by way of a price migration - the dates of which will be informed shortly.
