Airtel Digital TV has reportedly introduced six new long-term DTH packs for its subscribers. While some of these packs are valid for both SD and HD subscribers, others are limited to just SD users. All these packs are now said to be available to Airtel Digital TV users via the company website, official app, or customer care. The new Airtel Digital TV long-term packs are Hindi Value SD pack, Ultimate Dhamaka Pack (UDP) SD, Gujarat Value Sports SD, Gujarat Value Sports HD, Gujarat Mega SD, and Gujarat Mega HD.
The new Airtel Digital TV packs are said to come in two validity options – 6 months + 15 days free and 11 months + one month free – effectively providing 6.5 months and 12 months validity to the users, except for the UDP pack, which is only valid for 6 months or 12 months and doesn't include any free duration. The new packs were spotted by Telecom Talk.
