    Default Airtel IPTV

    Great News!!!

    Finally Airtel has launched its IPTV (Internet Protocol Television) services to DELHI NCR customers.

    On the 19th Airtel introduced 'Triple Play' where customer now just need to book a single order and like DTH 1+1 team of IO (Installation Officer) and Support Technician will get IPTV, Broadband and Landline installed. This will mean that customer just need to book one appointment for all their digital solutions provided via broadband.

    Some notes on Airtel IPTV you may wish to know:

    • EPG is similar to DTH, however is one notch higer with 'Time Shift TV'. This allows currently 12 channels to be viewed like DVD (play, pause, fwd etc) for past one week customer may have missed. Later on these will be increased to 48 channels.
    • 1+1 team will ensure AWESOME customer service to its customers.
    • IPTV connection requires four port modem and if you somehow have managed to take the cable out insert it in port 4 only, else IPTV will NOT work.
    • IPTV works on 8 MBPS and is dedicated line, hence it means you will not have any affect on your broadband either increase or decrease. Also, lanline, IPTV and DSL are independent services, which means if one affected it won't necessarily mean that other will be disrupted.
    • Modem is the hub so if that is damaged then both IPTV and broadband will be affected.
    • Airtel is not allowed to do external cabling for IPTV due to various reasons. Hence, please don't ask that Installation Officer to do it for you forcibly, it may cause him to lose his job. If you really want external cabling please contact your local electrician.
    • Two modes of connectivity, existing customer can upgrade and new people can go for very resonalble Triple Play

    Yes sir, indeed it does. Infact, on triple play, broadband is a seperate vertical like the existing broadband, therefore no changes in any terms and conditions of broadband.
