    Source: The Economic Times
    NEW DELHI: Consumer electronics major Videocon has delayed the launch of its Direct-to-home (DTH) venture. The company had earlier said it would start pilot tests in July and launch commercially in August. Videocon’s DTH brand, D2H, would be the sixth player to enter the DTH space.
    Videocon Industries director Saurabh Dhoot said, “We haven’t delayed our launch. We would start testing signals before the year end and launch it next year. I can’t reveal the exact date of the launch.” As per industry sources, Videocon would not be in a position to launch its DTH venture commercially before March next year.
    The company has announced plans to invest Rs 1,000 crore in the next three year on its DTH business. The company has also said that it would offer its product at competitive prices and would leverage its consumer durable customer base to grab the initial numbers.
    According to industry sources, there could be atleast one additional company who has applied for DTH license and has also talked to technology partners. India would be the first country in the world to have 6-7 DTH players and industry experts believe it would be a formidable task for them to exist and maintain the subscriber numbers.
    News Corp owned NDS Group chairman & CEO Abe Peled who was recently on an India visit had said, “If you ask me, it is difficult for seven DTH companies to coexist.” NDS provides digital cable and DTH companies with pay television technology.
    The entry of R-ADAG’s Big TV and Airtel digital television triggered a price war which has adversely impacted the profitability of DTH players. Dish TV is now looking at increasing its prices. Industry experts believe consumers attracted to players with low prices have zero loyalty factor and therefore players could loose such subscribers after they end their promotional offers.

    Videocon would not be in a position to launch its DTH venture commercially before March next year.

    Thumbs down poor service gurantee

    1- co. unsuccessfull of launch their service
    2- co. already unsuccessfull in electronics market
    3- co. never successfull to attarct their costomers by their offer
    4- only videocon washing machine is popular successful product
    5- indias 1st co. making of washing machine with dryer.
    6- co. looses their washng machine mkt.
    7. co. not involved in any kind of broadcasting services yet


    think
    so how this co. gives you gud quality,prices,services

    i predict this co. will be failure in DTH services

    so why waiting for D2h
    airtel
    tatasky
    dishtv
    suntv
    bigtv
    are waiting for u

    its not be launched yet, so tariffs are far long away, if you are thinking of switching try considering something which has already been launched, and you will find a lot of reviews for the other DTH companies on the forum itself!

    i have reviewed all the DTH services and cannot really find a better alternative of tata sky in terms of prices ... tata is proving to be really costly for me if i opt for most of the packages (those cannot be ignored) ... thats why i talked of this expectation from videocon ...

    well videocon tried their hands in every thing from Real Estate to Mobile service to DTH.
    But sadly, none really took off.

    Indian is the only country the whole world where 6-7 players are there in DTH space.

    also videocon has lost early mover advantage, now only way to enter market is via penetration pricing, which means huge losses and long break-even period.

    videocon's finicial condition is not that sound. I don't think we would see videocon in DTH space anytime soon

    Well yes, accoring to the news, they are going to launch d2h services on 27th of April 2009.

    I came across a blogspot blog which have many details about videocon d2h but don't know who is behind this blog?

    d2hdth.blogspot.com

    The informations there seems to be right as it says that the informations here by are collected from a very high corporate resource.

    There has been no such hype about Videocon DTH services why is that?

    When any final dates on the launch and is it different in all states?

    Lightbulb videocon dth will be launched within two months

    Videocon is launching the dth service within 2 months..and its unique feature is without wires ...
    only dish and the box..no wires..its a wireless technology used for this dth.
    its simply new idea for some customers for not drilling the walls to bring the cables inside the home ...happy na....

    Angry Oh shut up......

    From what you have said its quite clear that u dont hav any idea abt the company. Please get your facts straight and then try this rubbish sort of guess work.

    Think before you speak

    oh n by the way....airtel n dish tv are very bad with service
    sun tv is no good either
    reception of big tv is not clear
    and yes tata sky is very goood indeed....but thier pricing just seems to make fools out of custonmers
