Consumers will be able to get 100 standard definition (SD) channels at Rs 130 a month plus taxes, according to a new tariff order issued on Friday by broadcasting sector regulator Trai.

“The distribution of network capacity required for initial 100 SD channels can be availed by the subscriber by paying an amount not exceeding Rs 130, excluding taxes, per month to the distributor of TV channels,” Trai said in a statement.
