    Big TV has a good list of channels, and have a large variety of film channels, which is quite good.

    even sky is also providing a good and long list of channels.. i was checking it on tata site so found lot many good channels there.. but the basic package dont cover all the channels which are required for one to get a good dose of entertainment...

    but still the channels listed in super saver pack are good enough and worth for Rs. 260

    and now tata is offering 0% EMI aswell for 3 months.. which sounds like a good deal..

    You may buy the Set top box from any shop paying Rs. 1990 or Rs. 2190 and dial their toll free no. 1800 200 9001 and register for installation. Your dish and STB will be installed by the technicians. But when? Wait - Wait - Wait. Someday, sometime they may come.!!!!

    Default Tata Sky

    I have 5 months old connection.
    During thunderstorm or heavy rains the service gets interupted.
    Is it possible for the consumers to switch to other services like the TRAI is planning in case of Mobile phones?

    All DTH services in India face rain outage - some more; some less. So even if you switch, you may still face the issue.

    Big TV promises a lot especially with the first DTH provider using MPEG-4 technology. Tata and Dish are on MPEG-2.

    In simple terms, MPEG-4 uses half the band width and hence, it can provide more channels and better picture quality.

    But again, can it beat Tata sky , that we would have to watch and see!! Tata sky may also rethink its strategy in terms of Price asked for channel subscription. Already it has waived off the 1000 Rs installation fees.

    MPEG4 cannot give you better quality than MPEG2.

    Do you know that Blu Ray HD (the epitome of best quality) is encoded in MPEG2. MPEG4 can give you same quality but in much lesser bandwidth because of better compression technology. Ultimately, output quality can never exceed the source quality. The golden rule: Crap in = Crap out and vice versa

    In their (Big TV) web site, it is very difficult to read the channel list like other DTH operator's. Also their web site is absolutely not user friendly. They should change web site pattern.

    Default Big TV or Big Hoax???

    They promise installation in 72 hours. I registered on 2nd Sept- Am still awaiting installation - 9 days. Reliance executives make promises routinely - mostly slip of the tongue I guess. I regret not going for TATA sky! When you ask to speak to the cust service team leaders - they are always in meetings, on phone calls from 'other customers'. Ive heard a million assurances for the last 9 days of how they would attend immediately. Strongly recommend that you dont touch this product now! Ive lost Rs.2190/- Reliance doesnt give a damn.

    Default Horrible Customer Support / Huge delay in channel changing

    Hi,
    I'm first buyer of BIG TV in Kothrud / Pune area. Bought it on day 1 of launch and first from WebWorld in kothrud.

    I thought, as tested in more than 2000 town this service should not face any problem, but believe me... day one and I had 1st problem
    Problem 1: Not getting all channels.

    After numerous calls to customer care with no resolution, I found the solution by some experiments. You may read it here... parag-mylife.blogspot.com

    Problem 2: Opt for some package
    While buying, as I was in hurry, I took up some popular 12 months package later to realize that it wont give me much on TV and I need some more channels.
    The package wqas not applied to my connection and Technically I should be able to opt for a lower package, 3 months premium, till then. But arrogant customer care guy started quarreling like a street side vendor and asked me to talk to the one who sold me connection. Wow! "Raste Ka Maal Saste Me".

    Problem 3: Slow channel switching
    Now the new problem is Very Slow Channel Changing thing. Believe me it as slow as ... a cow sleeping on road. (I could not find any better example...)

    Problem 4: Blackout that too Frequent
    you are in the middle of action in some movie... and blackout or better a magical Blue Screen! "Wow! What you need better to enjoy that precious evening at home."

    So guys think before doing that BIG thing!!!!
