It is all too easy to buy a cable or satellite TV package and then watch a show on it, only to watch it again later.
This is the case in India, where many cable and satellite TV providers sell bundled packages, allowing customers to watch multiple channels on the same TV at once.
This kind of arrangement, known as a ‘monster cable’, is common across India and is not uncommon in the country.
This week, the telecom regulator TRAI asked operators to make the same deal mandatory for cable operators to be required to carry such a package.
TRAI has also asked operators not to charge consumers extra for such packages.
