Star channels are now available in AKASH DTH

AKASH DTH, the country’s legal broadcaster of popular channels of STAR, is distributing Star Plus, Star Gold, Star Jalsha, Jalsha Movies, National Geography, Star Bharat, and Star Sports.

AKASH DTH says it has the government’s permission to broadcast Star channels while unscrupulous businessmen are using illegal Indian DTH connections in Bangladesh for redistributing various channels.

AKASH users can purchase a monthly subscription of AKASH Standard with 120+ channels, including 40+ HD, for Tk 399 and AKASH Lite with 70+ channels, including 20 HD channels, for Tk 249 under the regular and basic connections.

All channels are legal and approved by the government, it said in a press release.

AKASH DTH’s Head of Marketing & Business Development Muhammad Abul Khair Chowdhury said, “We’re fully committed to delivering the best experience of TV viewing to the country’s people complying with all relevant rules and regulations.”

He said they pay 15 percent VAT to the government on their service and paid all necessary duties and taxes for each Customer Premise Equipment (CPE)/devices that are imported and sold to customers.

He said the sector could be a big source of VAT for the government.

AKASH DTH started to provide its service using the feed of the Bangabandhu satellite-1 from May last year. It is available in all 64 districts and can be viewed from any corner of Bangladesh with the same quality.

AKASH is unique for uninterrupted and quality TV watching, the company says.
