With the new TRAI pricing regime for TV coming into effect starting February 1, 2019, TV viewers can now opt to pay only for the channels they want to watch.
To make this switch easy for customers, Airtel Digital TV had announced the a-la-carte pricing of the channels on its website last month. This will enable customers to easily switch their plans on Airtel website or the My Airtel App or by calling the customer care team.
With an aim to make this transition even more convenient and seamless for its customers, Airtel is now enabling them to opt for their favorite channels with just a QR code scan on their television screen.
Customers can make their own plans or select from a range of recommended plans as per the new TRAI guidelines on channel number 998 on Airtel digital TV. Yes, it is as easy as viewing all channels and their prices, selecting them and finally just scanning a QR code to activate their selection.
Customers can view the complete list of channels along with its a-la carte price as well as the broadcaster packs. They can also opt for the Airtel value plans which have been specially designed for customers based on their current channel selection or current monthly recharge value.
After the channel or pack selection, customers have to just scan the QR code and send it to 54325 and the pack will automatically get activated starting February 1.
To scan the code, customers have to use their smartphone camera. In case their phone camera does not support QR scanner, customers can download any free QR scanner app from the Playstore or Apple store and get started.
For greater convenience of the customers, a quick demonstration video of how to select the channels and plans is also available on channel no 999. Customers can also log on to www.airtel.in/digital-tv or My Airtel App to select the channels or pack of their choice.
