Sony Pictures Networks believes Tata Sky not acting in 'consumer interest'

The network issued a statement in reaction to Tata Sky dropping 22 channels

Sony Pictures Networks believes Tata Sky not acting in 'consumer interest'
Sony Pictures Network India (SPN) has issued a statement with regarding Tata Sky 'dropping' its 22 channels from the network. 
 
This follows the development of the D2H provider urging users to give a 'missed call' on a number to continue watching channels from the network. 
 
Excerpts from the statement: 
 
"Sony Pictures Networks India (SPN) and Tata Sky have over the years developed an excellent working relationship. It is therefore unfortunate that Tata Sky has unilaterally chosen to drop 22 SPN channels from its subscription, even though SPN has not increased the rates of its channels.
 
Further, by compelling existing subscribers to give separate “missed” calls even to continue watching the SPN channels they have already paid for, Tata Sky is not acting in consumer interest.
 
We would like to reassure Tata Sky subscribers that the SPN channels are available under the TRAI mandated Reference Interconnect Offer (RIO). All they have to do is call Tata Sky and demand that the channel be provided to them."
