In quite a rare move, the ARY Digital TV Network has unveiled prices of its new channels before they have even launched.
When speaking to channel officials earlier today, the broadcaster said it will not be selling the three forthcoming channels One World, Muzik and QTV separately. They will be bundled together. The new initiative will benefit new subscribers who choose to subscribe to the channel before the new channels launch. The same applies to existing ARY subscribers, if they choose to renew their subscription, they too will receive the new channels at a discounted price.
Subscribers are currently paying 100 annually to view ARY Digital as a standalone channel. This price has now been reduced to 80 per year for ARY Digital alone. However, when the new channels launch in November, One World, Muzik and QTV will be bundled together and sold at 45. This will total the whole new package at 125 per year.
The channel has been promoting the new package on its channel but has not formally announced the news as it continues to bring rolling news coverage on the devastating earthquake in South Asia on Saturday. As always keep it with Biz Asia on the new channels.
