    Lightbulb Best DTH connection and services in Kothrud, Pune

    Hi,

    I'm planning to get a DTH connection to 2 TVs at my house. none of them are HD compatible. Can anyone suggest me cheaper option for 2 TVs (want to see separate channels).

    I'm sports freak person and my family prefers to watch regular Marathi serials or NEWS channels.

    Please suggest. Thanks in advance.

    Your local cable operator would turn out to be the most economical option I believe. Find out how much they charge and if not Dish tv has very reasonable prices including their recorder box which can be used to record programs when ever you want and watch them later.

    Thanks Admin,

    My cable operator charges Rs. 512 including 2 TV connections and I do not have set top box.

    I may not be much interested to record anything but certainly want good package for 2 TVs and better quality too. without set top box there's bad quality and even if I opt for set top box then they want me to pay Rs. 1000/- per set top box.

    If after paying for two set top boxes with your cable operator your monthly outgoing remains Rs512 and gives you all the channels you want including your sports channels then I would say it cant get any better then that because with DTH it will be atleast Rs100-150 more then what you are already paying.

    Nothing its cheaper than cable. But as the saying goes "when you hand out peanuts, you get monkeys". For best quality, you may wish to go with dth. If you opt for dth, there is a one time cost of cpe (set top box, dish, cables) and installation. But in today's newspapers I saw Videocon d2h offering zero cpe for serving from cable.

    OP wants sports channels along with all the other basic stuff and has 2 tvs so the cost per mont would go up to 650-700 per month and cable set top box on the other hand is also digital and quality from what I have seen is no less then any dth provider but if cost is not a major conscern then go for tata sky by all means but be assured that DTH will always be a lot more costlier then ypur cable operator and the difference in costs has only started to widen and it will widen even more in days to come. This is just my personal opinion and I might be wrong.

    Thanks everyone... Someone said that initial set top box from tata sky comes from 1000 bucks so I thought why not go for it. Videocon looks cheaper too. I would be interested in basic pack plus sports pack only (should cover Ten and Neo as well for cricket). I guess then cost should come down and then add on Rs. 160 for extra tv which I'm already doing. I might also opt for any 1-2 channels from history, discovery and Nat. Geo.

    Videocon and tata sky basic packs cost around Rs. 220/- Pls correct me if wrong.

    What's your opinion guys then...

    Thanks!

    Check the website for exact price. There is an installation charge also that is quoted separately.
