    Default Showcases movies on Tata Sky

    For those who have Tata Sky have you actually noticed that its not worth purchasing showcase movies. The reason for this is when there is a new movie in showcase, its only until a week later or so that the same movies is shown on tv, so there is no point in paying Rs75 or Rs50 whatever it maybe for a movie which you can see for free a week later.

    There was a time when I purchased movies from the Tata Sky showcase, but after noticing this ive never ordered a movie, there is simply no point.

    I got Tata Sky from last 5 years I think but never even thought of purchasing a showcase movie, better idea is to buy a DVD which you can watch even after a month.

    The titles Tata Sky has in their Showcase are ancient. Ive never seen any good movies listed on there. I did buy a few long time ago but not recently.

    Its not even worth purchasing the DVD's, I mean unless its a really good movie. How many times do you actually watch a movie twice??? I guess never, unless like I said a really really good movie......better off waiting till its on TV.....

    I watch Showcase movies on TS. But that is only because I am on annual mega pack and get 12 movies free a year. Even then, I am not able to exhaust the quota.

    - Most movies are not worth watching
    - The movies are kept too long on the menu card (they should change movies every 15 days)
    - After being used to DVD quality and now Blu-ray quality, SD quality on TV (which does not equal DVD quality) is just painful
    - On the 16:9 TV, the showcase movies, shown in 4:3 format, stretch the picture causing distorted view

    The only good thing I suppose is the ad-break free viewing. Otherwise the showcase movies are not worth, even if the movie does not come on regular channel in a week.

    Thats the thing. I dont watch blu rays but I do watch movies on star movies HD once in a while and then watching a SD which they want us to pay for is not such a good idea. This is the very reason I dont watch anything on VOD either because the video quality is just too bad.

    If I remember correctly they used to do HD movies on showcase earlier but I dont see that option any more.

    Its not just the quality but Tata Sky have now put their showcase movies on a time bound. You can not order a movie after I think its 12am or 1am and the nest showcases movie starts at I think at 9am. I personally think that they lose business like this, as people like who used to watch show case movies used to order them at night and stay up to watch them.
