Now after some silence DD invites tender to increase the channel count to 75, The maximum the satellite can hold.These all channels will remain on mpeg2 and on same satellite. So the question arises when they will add new channel to increase the dd channel count to 75. The answer is we have to wait for some time to allow dd platform to upgrade and can hold e auctions to fill those slots for dd.
But still there are questions dd are saying we do not have much transponders. then where is the Gsat series. Why they are unused .]
