Leading online payment platforms like Airtel Payments Bank offer the highest levels of ease and security for online transactions. This article explains how to recharge your DTH connection using the Payments Bank.
Every home that has a superb TV set and a penchant for quality programming, should get a DTH connection. The DTH connection provides crystal clear image resolution, sharp sound, programmes that you like to watch, and the freedom to pay only for what you consume.
If there is one gripe you have against DTH, it is that the connection must be recharged every month. The connection functions on a prepaid basis, where you select the channel pack and proceed to pay for it before you consume it for the pack validity period. However, there are other benefits in online DTH recharge, too:
- You receive an alert about the impending recharge on your TV screen. This way, you cannot miss the recharge date.
- You can recharge the connection using your phone or tab, in just a few steps. Leading providers like Airtel offer the usual online payment modes (net banking, UPI, debit/credit cards) as also the superb Airtel Payments Bank which is a mobile wallet cum savings account.
- The recharge comes through at once, without an interruption in transmission or services.
- Airtel offers excellent connectivity, several packs and easy recharge options. You even have the freedom to change your existing channel pack while you do the DTH recharge. It is a fully secure payment mode for all your transactions.
- The Airtel Payments Bank can be used for prepaid and DTH recharge, postpaid and broadband bill payments, data card payments, and utility bill payments.
