    Default Change over to another DTH provider

    Just like we have MNP now, we should also have something to change our DTH provider as well, where we could use the same set top box and just use another card which is inserted inside the set top box and voila yournew dth provider.
    But because this cant happen it would be a mission changing set top boxes, getting a new dish put up on your roof and so on.......the charges would near enough be as a new installation.

    That would be good, but it wouldn't be so easy because of all the hardware involved in getting a new connection. the question would arise to whether another DTH provider card would work in some other set top box. But if the issue of hardware, dish and wiring wasn't involved then it would really good to have a similar service like MNP for DTH services.

    Default Change over to another DTH provider

    I am seeing that DTH services are adding more and more channels, which is a good thing, as the more variety there is the better, and if a DTH has the same channels as the other DTH then it would ideally save people from changing DTH services. The main question is that would this mean that DTH providers will now begin to increase their charges?

    Most 'general audience' channels are available with all DTH providers, however there are some premium channels which are specific to the DTH providers (at least for the first few months). Other factors like regional channels (lets say for South India or North East specific) and customer care would also come into picture when selecting the service provider. :-)

    It would be good if something like this happened but I doubt it that it would and I say this because there is so much provided by the DTH provider like the dish and STB box, and plus there is much more money involved than mobiles to be able to provide a MNP service for DTH services.

    For this to happen it would not work out to be beneficial for DTH providers, because of the their own set top boxes and they technology each service provider uses. Unless all service providers owned the STB's provided to their customers.
