With the imminent changes to Sky Digital’s bundle prices, Star TV has confirmed that three of its channels will be made more widely available to subscribers.
From Thursday 1st September, Star Plus, Star Gold and Star One will all be available as part of Sky Digital’s basic package (entry level). With this, the channels will see a rise of over 3 million in their subscriber numbers due to the re-packaging of Sky�۪s basic bundles, representing a 48% rise in connected households.
The changes will see Sky offering new pricing and packaging options, simplifying the 6 entry-level basic packs to one entry level tier (Entertainment pack), with a �5 buy-through for the second basic pack (Entertainment Extra pack).
Star TV�۪s Head of UK Operations, Yeshpal Sharma, stated, “We are absolutely delighted with this news and look forward to offering the very best in Asian entertainment to a larger segment of UK audiences. Our commitment at Star has always been to raise the bar and continue to change the game.”
Star News will be the only channel in the network to be available in the second tier (Entertainment Extra pack).
