republic tv also used similar tactics when it launched. it was the default channel for lot of cable operators so it had highest impressions and hence highest TRPs amongst all news channels within short time of its launchSource
so this malware has reached tata sky as well.
i went through the channel list on my tata sky backend.
namo tv does not seem to exist.
another question worth asking here. can tata sky (or any dth operator) push a new channel just like that on all user accounts? under the new trai regime? isn't it required that a customer manually adds it to their account? unless of course, user has subscribed to predefined package and they add a new channel to that package?
