    Here every is suggesting the DTH they are using.

    I am using Dishtv for quite some time and suggests all the same because of Most number of channels Economical Packages, No hardware problem and also software is okay. worth for the money you are spending.


    But Also I would like to know what your requirement?
    Do you want to go for HD or Normal Box?

    Based on that i would suggest you more about Offer and Packages.

    thanks in advance
    How would you define "best"?

    To some "best" means excellent quality and service - price no bar. To some others "best" means reasonable quality/service/price.

    Here is my personal rating (in ascending order of provider names):

    Airtel Digital: Good picture quality (PQ). Reasonably priced. Packages are not that many. OK in service - some people have reported issues. Airtel IPTV is one of the best offerings (landline + broadband + TV).
    BigTV: Excellent picture quality (PQ) - the best of the lot. Very poor service. Reasonably priced and reasonable packages. Very large "BigTV" logo spoils viewing experience.
    DishTV: Reasonable PQ but not great. The best packages - almost everything is available in clean a-la-carte packs. Very affordable. Reasonable service. No NEO channels.
    TataSky: Very good picture quality and sound. The best STB user interface. Bad packages. Very costly. Excellent add on (ACTIV) services.
    Videocon D2H: Not really seen myself but believed to have reasonable PQ. Cheapest of all the providers. Relative new entrant; so cannot comment on service levels and other aspects.

    Its also depends on what all packages/channels you require, and whether price is an issue!!!!

    Otherwise speaking Tata Sky has brilliant picture quality and customer service is good too

    TATA Sky is not recommended for Kerala.It is having less number of Malayalam Channels compared to other DTH providers.

    Ajith bro, you are looking at it very narrowly. The malyalam channels diff is not that much. Please there is a common perception that Sun DTH is the one which is most fav by south users. But few weeks back , there was some problem in their satellite and all connections and add-on packs were gone! They are still struggling to restore the VOD. All blogs and forums are abuzz with this. Overall, looking at the costs, the service, the reliability Tata Sky is still "better" than the others. Note that I am not saying it is the best or that it has no issues. But still it is "better"

    Default Thank god if you dont have Tata SKY! Stay AWAY

    Tata Sky Satellite TV is off to a great start as far as numbers go, I believe it must have enlisted a record number of people in its few months of existence. But numbers aren’t everything, as the market will start to saturate, customer satisfaction will be the key. But Tata Sky does not seem to realise this, choosing to ignore customers wont get you anywhere. Everywhere when you ask a Tata Sky customer, if he is satisfied, the answer is a straight ‘NO’. But does Tata sky care ? It definitely doesnt seem like it.

    Tata Sky first went wrong when it stopped listening to the consumer, take the whole Neo Sports, Start sports and ESPN for example. None are available in the sports section and cleverly hidden in premium priced packs.
    There has been no improvement, no digital audio channels were added as earlier promised. Little interactive content is present on Tata Sky, personally I don’t prefer to watch stupid star news all the time.

    Then there is the bit about (allegedly) being the most advanced satellite TV service of India. Lets see what we have in India, no Internet, pathetic CD quality picture, Zero Telecast during rain (even if there is no thunder), no Digital Video Recorder, no toll free redressal mechanism, the abuse of the set top box alert system for spamming about Showcase movies etc and the forced adverts on the homescreen whenever you turn it on!

    The customer service number is actually undialable. You have to make an STD call to Chandigarh everytime you have a problem or wish to recharge.

    And what’s with the new so called packs, very cleverly designed by the people at Tata Sky, quietly keeping a few channels out from each pack so consumers are forced to take the whole bouquet. They should make it on a per channel basis also after the packs, so if one channel is missing from a pack, the consumer does not have to upgrade the whole package, but can buy that one channel after paying Rs.5.

    Their website is also not navigable, it has little information and does not work in Firefox, they should probably fire their web designers and sue them for making the pathetic website. To people looking to get a TV service, i recommend waiting for Reliance and other players before taking the plunge !

    When Tata Sky first came on people were happy that their local Cable operator a.k.a. goon wont be able to fleece anymore. True, but little do they realise that Tata Sky is no honest service. They own your dish, the installation warranty expires after one year and then , if their dish gets damaged you will have to pay for it. If wiring gets broken, its absolutely your liability not theirs. (was horrified at the straight denial given by the customer care when I called them for support I was already more than a year with them, instead of praising my loyalty they straightaway refused service saying that since your 1 year warranty is over you will have to bear ALL MAINTENANCE / SUPPORT COSTS. I was really heartbroken and amazed at the kind of treatment done to old customers, where is the loyalty benefit with these guys, nothing. You be loyal to them and they will give you stab at the back when you ask for support!

    Stay away from this nasty service friends…take ANY other company but dont fall into the advertising gimmicks, huge glitter and big names like Amir endorsing it. (Of course I am a big fan of his, but feel pity that he didn’t see this flaw before endorsing the product)

    Whats the use when you cant get support when you need it the most. When you need support after one year..you will be kicked in the stomach!
