Trai's new regime for television channels to roll-out on February 1: Are viewers aware?

Updated : January 28, 2019 08:22 AM IST

The new regime of Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) is about to roll-out on February 1.

The new regime promises transparency by allowing viewers to choose television (TV) channels they want to watch and pay only for those.

The migration to the new system seems to be marred by low consumer awareness, lack of preparedness by the operators and simmering tension between the stakeholders.

As the deadline nears, CNBC-TV18 tries to find out if the consumers and the channels are prepared for the same.
