TRAI removes genre-wise price cap on channels which it had suggested in draft order. But pricing of a channel forming part of a bouquet is capped at Rs 19 per month (excluding taxes). Differential pricing of channels based on geographical areas done away with. However, if a broadcaster wants to offer a lower price for a channel in a particular geographical area, he can do so. In order to overcome misconception, TRAI has decided to do away with categorisation of channels as premium channels.
TRAI has found 104 pay non-news channels to be airing more than 12 minutes of ads on an average per hour during 7 pm–10 pm during quarter ended 25 Sep 2016. Along with 23 pay news channels, there are 127 channels that are showing ads in excess of the 12-minute ad cap rule that is being currently contested by broadcasters in the court. The 104 non-news channels aired 14.15 minutes of ads on average.
