I have shifted my house and left my old airtel SD connection including set top box and dish at old house which is in different city. So now I have to get a new connection. I have a full HD TV, so am thinking of getting a HD connection time. Can fellow dimers pls help me in finding a good dth provider and also a deal on the subscription. I don’t mind going for annual subscription if I am getting a good deal.

Pls help. Thanks in advance.

I also have 3D smart TV and yesterday I bought Dish TV from shopclues for 967 with 1 month titanium and HD pack, waiting for installation. I am opting out of HD from next month and going for minimum customized pack around 150, other company’s not providing this feature. Check HD alcarte pricing from website.

Are you using one? I need a third connection just for news and do you know of any set top box/dish combo that works good for this purpose? I have seen few on ebay but not sure if they would work.

How is dish tv in comparison to tata sky and videocon? I dont have a 3D tv, only a full hd tv. I am almost inclining towards tata sky 1yr subscription with dhamaal pack.

You can customize your channels on alcarte basis and min you have you have to pay is 150rs, with this option you can avoid junk of channels and select only regular watching channels.

Why you left set top box and dish at old house?

Just curious to know. https://cdn2.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_toungueout.gif

BTW don’t buy reliance digital TV.

Very less number of channels, no availability of HD box.( CC always say that they don’t have HD box in stock now. https://cdn3.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_lol.gif )

While others have around 35 HD channels Reliance has only around 10. https://cdn3.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_lol.gif

And they have only 5 million subscribers since December 2015. https://cdn3.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_lol.gif

CC: @cody

P.S: Just read this news, so adding.

Among all DTH players, Dish TV has market share of 27 per cent followed by Tata Sky with 20 per cent market penetration, Airtel digital TV has 19 per cent market share, Videocon d2h has 16 per cent market share, Sun Direct has 12 per cent, while Reliance Digital TV has just 6 per cent presence and DD Direct has just 2 per cent presence.

I didn’t leave it back intentionally.. Left it behind my mistake and now very difficult to get back given different city. I have gone through the links provided by you, and each post us suggesting different provider. I am okay to choose any of the provider, so are you aware of any good deal in any of them which gives all channels likes sports, music, entertainment and movies? Thanks.

Go for Tatasky. Subscriber from 6-7 years. Good customer service. Recharges are flexible (you can recharge with almost any amount, which is not possible on DishTv. They have many offers running most of the time. Get it from ebay @12% discount. Search DD for discount coupons.

Thanks bro.. Am seeing the best offer on eBay on tatasky is for Rs 4850 for HD box with 1 yr dhamaal mix and 1 yr HD access.. I think there is a 12% code floating on dd which ppl r selling for Rs 50..so final price will come to around 4300..is this a good deal? And 1 more question I have is that is HD access really for 12 months, as some of the comments on amazon for similar deals mentioned that seller cheated and free HD access is only for 1 month and then Tata sky charges 150 rupees extra pm.

Don’t buy code for 50, just create a new account and you will get that code within 24 hours. I can also give you that code but I think it can’t be used for other ID. And for HD access fee just opt for a good seller. I think you should wait for some more days as they will surely introduce some Diwali offers soon. Also check with your local dealers and on Tatasky official site.

How is dish TV? I see an offer for HD recorder box plus 1 month titanium pack submission for Rs 981 on shop clues. Thinking of getting they if monthly recharge after 1 month is reasonable.

If you watch channels of discovery networks, NatGeo, Vh1, star sports, MTV, then I recommend Tatasky as in Dhamal cricket pack(300 monthly) you will get all these channels. Also you will surely get many packs for Rs. 1 in Jingalala Saturdays. I personally don’t like regular packs of distv and more over you can’t recharge DishTv for any amount you want i.e. 200,400 or 600.You have to recharge with fixed denominations. Compare these things with your needs and chose which one is best for you. But I strongly recommend to get TATASKY.

If you want the best bang for your buck, go for a prepaid yearly HD offer from any provider. Find the lowest one that you like.

Not only are they heavily discounted (or include 2/3 months free), they’ll give you an HD setup box free as well which usually costs anywhere between 1700-2000/-. On top of that, they’ll throw in an “unlimited recording” top-up (Rs.30/mo value) and some “latest Bollywood movies” top-up (Rs.60/mo value) for free.
