Three major DTH operators in India are offering instant credit facility to its subscribers in this coronavirus lockdown time. Tata Sky and Dish TV India limited (which also owns d2h) are offering various benefits to subscribers who are unable to recharge their DTH set-top-boxes (STBs) due to lockdown restrictions or otherwise.
Dish TV has always run its ‘Pay Later Service’ for all users, but just for the lockdown, the DTH operator is making sure that subscribers enjoy continuous services without interruption. Hence the subscribers who want the instant credit/loan can give a missed call at 1800-274-9050 from a registered mobile number and get the instant credit in their accounts.

It’s another DTH company, the d2h, is also offering instant credit facility to its subscribers but with a catch. The d2h has included a service charge in the instant credit facility. So the subscribers opting for D2h instant credit facility will have to pay an additional cost later. This service charge fee is Rs 10.

Lastly, the popular Tata Sky is calling it an Emergency Credit Service. It has introduced this credit service facility for its subscribers who are not able to get their recharge done from nearby retail stores. Tata Sky subscribers who will opt for emergency credit service will have to pay the extra credit amount later, although the company is not levying any service charge. Subscribers can avail the emergency credit service by giving a missed call on 080-61999922 from their registered mobile number. The DTH operator will credit the amount in the Tata Sky account, and will also re-activate their accounts if they were suspended.
