ARPU for the company increased to Rs. 142 from Rs 135, a 5% Year-on-Year increase which led to a 45% growth in subscription revenues which stands at Rs 309.1 crores. According to the company, increased traction in the middle level subscription packs over base packs resulted in this growth.  Subscriber Acquisition Cost (SAC) for Dish TV increased marginally to Rs. 2,142, compared with Rs. 2,083 in the preceding quarter, due to higher selling and distribution expenses.

Dish TV has increased transponder capacity to increase its offerings in the high definition bouquet and generate higher revenues.  It has also signed a long term contract for additional transponders on Asiasat with ‘Antriksh’, increasing the total transmission bandwidth to 648Mhz. This increases Dish TV’s standard definition channel capacity to 320 and high definition capacity to over 30.
