Sun Direct Pvt Ltd, the leading direct-to-home (DTH) service provider is all set to redefine the television viewing in the country. Sun Direct today created history by launching the first ever High Definition (HD) broadcast on DTH platform in India.
Speaking on the occasion, Tony D'Silva, COO of Sun Direct said, "We believe that in the constantly changing viewer-ship dynamics and taste, to keep the viewer continuously happy and engaged we need to offer them new and exciting options and HD is another first from the Sun Direct stable. HD is a visual delight and we are extremely happy to launch the world class services for our audience in India.”
Adding another feather to the cap Sun Direct has crossed the three million subscriber base since its launch in December 2007. Sun Direct caters to every segment of the viewer ship through its innovative content packaging.
"Another landmark achievement for us is crossing the three million mark subscriber base by March 2009, as committed earlier; this achievement qualifies us to be the No 2 service DTH provider. In the coming fiscal year we look forward to occupy the pole position. We have added more customers than any other DTH player in the last one year and in the coming days we will be adding more innovative features, services and channels in our offerings," added D'Silva.
HDTV is considered as one of the world's best digital broadcast platforms with a higher resolution than traditional television system. The images and pictures appear more clear and sharp and sound quality is also enhanced. HDTV will improve the viewer experience by about five times over a regular television.

Various international channels and content providers have been queued up for obtaining mandatory statuary compliance for broadcasting HD in India.
