Hathway to carry MSM channel’s on a-la-carte basis

Multi Screen Media (MSM) channels will now be available only on a-la-carte basis to Hathway Cable & Datacom subscribers from August 2. “Sony TV, SET Max, Sab TV, Sony Pix, Sony Six, Sony Kix, Sony Mix, Sony Aath, AXN, Animax, Sony Pal, Sony Max 2, SET HD, Sony Pix HD and Sony Six HD will be available on A-LA-CARTE basis w.e.f. 2nd August 2015, “ appeared on Hathway subscribers’ TV sets, however neither MSM nor Hathway were available for comment at the time of filing this report.

This means that Hathway subscribers will not receive any of the MSM channels unless they subscribe for it. It still remains uncertain as to why MSM has decided to go the a-la-carte route on Hathway.

Hathway in the past has had problems with broadcasters such as Star India and ZEEL’s Taj TV and had constant battles which had to be settled by the TDSAT. Some broadcasters had even last year accused Hathway of causing disruption to their channels. 

The group released the Little Hearts online-only campaign, #BreakSomeHearts, early this year and is on the path to make many more of its brands available on the digital platform
