Multi System Operator (MSO) Digicable Pvt. Ltd, on Friday said it would invest Rs 225 crore in the next fiscal (FY 2012-13) to supply 1.5 million set-top boxes to its subscribers in the city. The company is planning to offer set-top boxes at a subsidised rate of Rs 500.

The actual set top box is priced at nearly Rs. 1,700 a box. The company will also offer easy instalment schemes at Rs 60 a month for low income groups and a rental scheme for those having transferable jobs.

Apart from West Bengal, Digicable has a strong presence in the cable TV industry in Punjab, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Chattisgarh, Maharastra and Andhra Pradesh. It also operates in Uttar Pradesh, Delhi, Haryana and Uttarakhand.
