    No doubt that Tata Sky has a superior picture quality as compare to other dth operators but one thing i would like to knw that why cant TATA SKY show more music channels like 9xm, music india, or Zee music.

    Probably because:
    • They are yet to reach an agreement with the content providers on pricing.
    • TataSky is already the costliest of all DTH providers. They cannot afford to increase costs any more.
    • They could add this as an "Add on package" but the experience shows that not many people subscribe to add on packages and then the cost of transmission is not recovered.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Tata sky has added 2 new channels. They are Zee Telugu and Zee Kannada. I think it is part of their strategy to expand business in the south.

    There is some dispute going on with Zee. I think they will reduce prices over time. They will have to if they want to stay competitive.

    Those are devotional channels. Shalom is a malayalam devotional channel, while GOD is an english channel of the same category.

    my opinions about 9xm so far are not so +ve ... average channel ... not all those trendy and fun stuff like in channel V and MTv ... just a simple music channel

    TRP matters for every channel .. even for music channels ... the newer songs and videos are in more demand among general public ... i would have liked the music channels to show songs from 90's. but do you expect them to make much money by doing so? :no:

    Music india is a channel which is good in this aspect .. lets see when it is inherited by tata sky
