    Default MPEG-4 on DD Direct +

    By December, DD Direct Plus will increase its channel offerings to 97 and in the next 12 months, to 200. Several pay channels may turn free on DD Direct Plus because of its proposed reach, a senior official from the I&B ministry told FE. Currently, at least 88 channels, including several popular ones like IBN7, NewsX, Star Pravah, NDTV Hindi, Imagine, and a slew of regional channels are in queue to come on-board DD Direct Plus, a Doordarshan insider said.

    In order to compete with the private DTH operators, DD Direct Plus will also move to the latest video compression technology—MPEG 4, DVB S-2—used by most private DTH operators currently. This has been planned to provide the latest digital video and audio services to the subscribers.

    They are definitely intending to make a good move by mentioning to turn several pay channels to free.
