Boycott pay channels

Sir, — With the introduction of the Conditional Access System in Chennai, the subscribers have been let down by the Government, the multi system operators and cable operators. While the subscribers earlier paid between Rs.120 and Rs.180 for all the channels, they now have to shell out anything between Rs. 300 and Rs. 450 a month for the same number of channels, besides buying a set top box for about Rs. 4000. This when the Centre had assured Parliament that the subscribers would not be made to pay more than the existing charges. People should unitedly decide to boycott pay channels.
