Sony Pictures Network India (SPNI) has updated its monthly subscription price from 1 July. The network has reduced MRP of most of its bouquets (the pricing of Happy India) packs after discontinuing its English entertainment channel AXN and AXN HD from 1 July. 

However, the à la carte prices for all the channels for both SD and HD remain the same. 

For instance, Happy India English HD pack which was priced at Rs 20 comprising Sony Pix HD, AXN HD and Sony BBC Earth HD is now priced at Rs 15.6 per month. Similarly, Happy India Sports+ English HD pack which was priced at Rs 46.4 for seven channels is now priced at Rs 42.7 per month for six channels. 

In the SD pack, Happy India English which was priced at Rs 12 for Sony Pix, AXN and Sony BBC Earth is now priced at Rs 8.8 per month.  

Exchange4media reached out to SPNI for an official comment but didn’t receive any response at the time of filing this copy. 

This is the second time SPNI has revised its subscription pricing. The MRP of Happy India pack was impacted after the network shut down its three-channel Sony Mix, Sony ESPN and Sony ESPN HD in March this year. The network has to reduce pricing of its several packs even after dropping three channels from its bouquets.
