Airtel Digital TV, one of the top three direct-to-home (DTH) providers in India, offers a range of channel packages for its customers to choose from. Subscribers can also change their Airtel Digital TV package through the website or the Airtel app. The operator offers a collection of assorted and specific channel packs. Customers can also go for à la carte or only pay for some channels. Selection of channels is available through the Airtel site as well as the Airtel mobile app. Preferred packages can also be picked by dialing the customer care number or sending an email to the Airtel customer care team. Apart from selecting a channel package for new customers, Airtel provides options to let its existing subscribers switch from one package to another.
How to change the Airtel Digital TV package through its website
The Airtel site provides you with an easy way to switch your existing Airtel Digital TV package. You can also skip to the next section to look at the steps you need to take to change your Airtel Digital TV package using the Airtel mobile app.
The first step to change your Airtel Digital TV package is to visit the Airtel site from a desktop and log in to the Subscriber Corner using your service ID or registered mobile number. You’ll also be required to either enter a predefined password or a four-digit OTP that you’ll get on the mobile number.
You’ll see the Subscriber Corner screen from where you need to click on the Digital TV section from the left sidebar.
Now, click on the Manage TV Channels option by scrolling down a little. This will bring you to a new screen where you’ll see your existing channel package.
Hit the Edit current plan button available below your existing channel package.
Airtel will now let you select your new package. You can look at different genres from the left sidebar or pick a recommended pack. Scroll down to choose from all the available channel packages for your DTH connection. You’ll see different packages in a card format, along with their price and channel count.
Once chosen, click on Select this plan featured just below your selected package.
Now, make sure you have all the channels in the selected package that you want to have on your DTH connection by scrolling down. You should also look at the price of the package before proceeding.

Once selected, the channel package will be applied to your Airtel Digital TV connection. The amount for the package will be deducted automatically from your account balance. If you don’t have that much amount, you’ll be required to recharge your account to apply the changes.
