India’s satellite TV subscriber base exceeds 41 million

India's six private direct to home (DTH) satellite TV operators have increased their total subscriber base by 28% on last year to 41,044,463 as of the end of September 2011, according to Indiantelevision.com.

Some 32,054,073 DTH subscribers were recorded at the end of December 2010. This figure compares to 19,148,848 in December 2009, and 11,104,997 in December 2008.

The latest figures relate to the DTH platforms operated by Dish TV, Tata Sky, Sun Direct, Airtel Digital TV, Reliance Digital TV, and Videocon d2h. No record is kept of subscribers to public broadcaster Doordarshan's DTH platform DD Direct Plus, as they only require a one off dish antenna purchase to access the service.
