    Direct to home (DTH) operator Sun Direct has increased its transponder capacity to offer more channels and services to its customers.

    In FY19, the DTH operator added one more transponder to take its total transponder count to 13. Sun Direct uses 13 transponders out of which nine transponders are from Measat and four transponders from GSAT.

    Sun Direct had added seven transponders including four from Measat and three from GSAT during FY18.

    The addition of eight transponders in FY18-19 has enabled the company to increase the number of SD channels offered to around 300 channels from 256 channels earlier and offer 69 HD channels.

    Sun Direct is also shifting to HEVC encoding as against MPEG 4 encoding used earlier which will help the company broadcast a higher number of channels within the existing bandwidth.
