But even light clouds disturb the show with DTH. Very annoying, am in cloudy weather for last 1 month and DishTV is the worst, does not work smooth like in other seasons.
But I do not like cable quality and outages also. No offers for cable charges.

We are on den cable.
It’s been the worst experience I ever had from past few months.
The cable goes “no signal” anytime made numerous compliant but it keeps happening frequently.
Picture quality is worst and most of time many channel are like watching a scratched DVD.
Over that can’t change channel as per my wish easily as the process is still manual and have to ask operator to add or remove channels.
No online payment options so no offers also.
Switching this month to DTH if everything goes right.

I also used to have Den cable, worst quality service. I bought firestick and got rid of it in the last prime day sale. At my hometown got one Vu android TV and since then stopped using DTH as well

Have requested call back from them but still not received any calls.
Although the platform is trusted and installation will be by Tatasky technician only.
If cod will be available then will go for them.
Also ask someone who is using Tatasky for refreel both of you will get ₹200.

Third class. Last time I tried that Thop tv on pc, it was garbage. Either i missed something, or things have changed now, or it indeed was garbage.

To OP, if you go Dth route, don’t ever consider airtel. Been a user from 2014. Initially they were good, offered excellent price to performance ratio. But after the TRAI drama last year the prices have increased 100% or more. Where i used to pay only 250 for all the regional channels in both SD and HD, all sports channels in HD, few English movie channels in HD and so on, after the TRAI hoax, now I’m paying 185 for only regional channels in SD and absolutely nothing else. Insane! Also airtel goes out the moment there’s cloud coverage, that’s so annoying.

Try going for Tata Sky now. That TRAI hoax was only meant to benefit the TS users, who were overpaying before like anything, but now the new rule has ensured they pay less. So TS packages are lot cheaper now. Also it’s the best in terms of reliability, i.e connection stays under bad weather, unlike other DTHs.

Komparify is trustworthy. I purchased few TS connections from them. No hassles. Price wise also good. I think COD is not available.

No way to skip base plan. Installation will be done on same day or next day(Can’t say sure during this time). The nearest tatasky franchise will fulfill the installation. To get in touch with them, proceed to payment page and cancel payment. They will call you back and assist. Happened with me everytime.
