In News and Current Affairs category, the number of channels has increased from 11 to 14, while the bucket of Hindi Music, Hindi Sports, Hindi Teleshopping channels, Bhojpuri Movies and Bhojpuri general entertainment channels has registered growth from 13 to 16.

The DD Freedish channels include 91 Doordarshan channels (comprising of 51 co-branded educational channels) and 76 private TV channels. With effect from April 1, 2022, DD Freedish private TV channels bouquet would comprise 8 Hindi general entertainment channels, 15 Hindi Movie channels, 6 Music channels, 22 News channels, 9 Bhojpuri channels, 4 Devotional and 2 foreign channels.

For the first time on DD Freedish, a dedicated channel for food, ‘Food Food’ by Chef Sanjeev Kapoor, has been added. There is good news for sports enthusiasts as now apart from DD Sports, Freedish will have another sports channel ‘MyCam’.  

In the latest e-auction for allotment of MPEG-2 slots of DD Freedish for 2022-23, 63 channels were allocated slots in various genres. 

Doordarshan Freedish has become the largest DTH platform with a reach of more than 43 million households. With improved auction processes leading to the addition of better quality and quantity of channels in various genres, between 2017 and 2022 alone, the Free DTH service of Doordarshan clocked a growth of almost 100% from 22 million in 2017 to 43 million in 2022.

A recent report by FICCI-EY stated that free Television continued to grow its base “to reach an estimated 43 million subscribers on the back of less expensive television sets, economic issues, and the addition of new channels to the platform.” 

The report has quoted Freedish distributors mentioning year-on-year growth in sales of DD Freedish set-top boxes.

Between 2004 and 2017, the DD Freedish subscribers grew by 22 million subscribers. While in just the last five years between 2017 and 2022, Freedish has added another 21 million subscribers, taking the total to 43 million.  

Prasar Bharati’s DTH service DD Freedish is the only Free-to-Air (FTA) Direct-To-Home (DTH) Service where the viewer doesn’t have to pay any monthly subscription fee. It only requires a small one-time investment of about Rs 2000 for the purchase of the DD Freedish set-top box.
