    You can go for ant DTH pack costing Rs. 200 and it will include your basic wants. The problem is with "sports".

    You have said "you want Sports" but have not mentioned which channels. The problem with most DTH companies is that they have seggregated the various sports channels into four groups:

    - the free group: this includes "DD Sports" only
    - the ESPN/SS group: this includes ESPN, Star Sports, Star Cricket
    - the TEN group: consists of Ten Sports, Ten Action+ and Ten Cricket
    - the Neo group: consists of Neo Sports and Neo Cricket

    The problem is low end packs generally do not have sports channels (other than DD sports). I assume that Rs. 200 is your budget. And in that budget, I can suggest you TataSky as follows:

    1. South Sports - Rs. 150: This will give you all Hindi News, some basic Hindi Entertainment (Sony, Star Plus, Zee - which is sufficient in my opinion), DD Sports, Star Sports and Neo Sports.
    n/b. Notice how cleverly the package is designed - it contains one sports channel from the two major groups.
    2. Sports 1 Pack - Rs. 65: You will get ESPN and Star Cricket in addition (Star Sports is already included)

    You can check with websites of various DTH providers but more or less you will find similar issues everywhere. My best advice would be to stick to cable right now.

    If your cable provider is behaving "funny" then it will be worth switching to DTH. Please note however that DTH will be costlier anyday.

    I suggest that you stick to a choice between Videocon D2H, DishTV or TataSky. Visit their websites for the browsing the package cost.

    Maybe the cable operator has not paid ESPN/SS because of the pathetic performance of Indian Cricket Team. Or maybe he lost on satta (betting). Ha! Ha!

    But yes. Switch to DTH for uninterrupted viewing (more or less). Perhaps if India does not lose more tests, it may even be worthwhile.
