    Default Is Videocon D2H good?

    Hello All,

    I have after a long thinking decided to switch to DTH.
    I was browsing through the catalogs of all the DTH providers, I found Videocon's rates cheaper(Diamond pack is charged at Rs 275/- taxes included) as compared to any other DTH service provider.
    As my cable-wallah charges us Rs. 300, and I think he provides us with all the channels, but the reception of some channels is bad.

    So I want to know if Videocon provides good quality and service.

    Thanks,
    Aditya.

    I dont know about the service and quality, but if you are someone who wants a wide range of channels then I would recommend going for something like Tata Sky, as they have many channels and I think the most out of all the DTH companies. You can also consider Dish TV, as Videocon has lesser channels than other DTH providers.

    Actually I was originally going for DishTV untill I came to know about Videocon D2H.
    As for TataSky, I don't find its pricing and package combinations attractive enough.

    Thanks for your opinion.

    Unhappy d2h

    how many channels ppl r watching at a time, these dth companies r fooling the common man. when dth was started, it was said that u only pay for what u watch. but its not the reality.
    y dont they charge rs. 5/per channel n gv the option to viewers to select from the list, instead of giving bouquets.

    Thumbs up VideoCon d2h is good.

    I have purchased SettopBox n DVD, channel reception quality is good.
    We dont have to switch cables for DVD and DTH since it is one pack.

    Also current pricing 275 includes all the channels with good quality reception.

    Worth a try.

    its good than other dth cheaper and all major channels are there that we watch ,, i compared it with tata sky but found that tata sky is costlier.
    d2h pack 275 is great all channels are covered sports , lifestyle, etc.

    Smile Videocon DTH

    I have been using Cable Settop box Hathway for more than 2 years now, and it was only on this saturday that I decided to go for Videocon with Diamond Plan, which comes for Rs 275, all inclusive, and it s working fine. The picture quality is good, sound clarity is amazing, and so far its been a good experiance.

    Has all the channels, of all the generes which we generally watch, movie, entertainment, sports, news.....

    Going forward, it seems to be a clear winner.

    Talking d2h go for it

    Hi All,
    I am using Videocon DTH from last 20 days.
    Picture quality is good & I am totally happy with the quality & features.
    There Active movies i.e. MovieOnDemand are still not fully operationalised so you will watch 6 movies all the time for free(although all are worthless including Ash movies Mistress of Spices).
    Rates are cheapest as compared to Airtel & other DTH players & if you but a 6 month or 12 month Diamond pack (which contains all Channel inclusing English Movies & all Cricket channels) the average cost per month will be around 245 Rs.
    Bye
    Ravi

    Default airtel digital tv

    please don't purchase videocone d2h - because its signal quality is not good at the time, dont' purchase reliance big tv - because its signal quality is too poor it was fail in rainy & bad weather, dont' purchase tata sky - because it is too costly (pay more, get less) & also don't purchase sun tv - because in this dth you saw more south channels

    Please & Please purchase Airtel Digital TV - because it was good in all fields (less amt., more channels, very- very good signal quality & picture quality is too good.)

    I have a 2 Airtel digital tv in my house from last 1 year.

    Default Videocom DTH looked better by advertisement, and in use too

    I bought Videocon DTH DVD in Bangalore on 24-Nov-09 at 3:45 PM. At 5:45 PM, Videocon installation team called me and asked if they can install on same day. They arrived at 6:15 PM, and the installation was done professionaly. I checked the DTH-DVD player in meantime, and quality of DVD player was comparable with other DVD player I have bought previously. The USB and SD/MMC/MS interface are on front panel, which is convenient. USB is version 2.0. I checked SD slot with uSD card plugged in uSD-SD adapter. The unit has built in power supply, which was convenient for me as my DTH box location is at height, so no fear of power adapter falling.

    I have not tested component cables with my LCD, as distance between LCD & DTH-DVD is more than 5 feet. The cable provided with box was for composite video (length 5 feet). I have 10 feet AV RCA cables, and there is no degrade in performance.

    Based upon price, it appears best bet for normal viewer. NDTV channels are not included in Rs. 275 package, then who cares, when same themes can be seen on so many other available channels.

    I did not consider Airtel DTH, because of their deceptive adevrtising. Tata Sky is expansive. Reliance Big-TV needs power adapter.

    However, please keep in mind. Videocon service is new. So it will take sometime before customer support becomes superior. Normally customer support is not needed, if one buying decisions is in place.

    It seems you are an airtel DTH promoter or somethingAnyhow i have been using videcon DTH for past 2.5 months and i must say i have not been disappointed..Signal quality is good ..CC is prompt(not jetfast service but they are honest at least..if they say their representative wud come after 2 days at 1 pm then he is there on time )..However they keep on repeating same movies for days on MOD which is so boring..nd dont expect too many or great interactive services like Tata Sky

    Default videocon dth

    I had just purchased videocon dth 5 days ago, its picture quality is good but audio quality is not good,following problems i had observed with it ----
    1.picture freeze for few sec as u move from one channel to other.
    2.Audio quality and volume changes from one channel to other.
    3.response time taken to move from one channel to other and one function to other is very slow and sometime irritating.
    4.STB hang frequently and stop responding to remote control signals.
    So these are major problems need to be sorted out by VIDEOCON DTH to take a position of Number one.
    In the view of economy and functions it is awesome functions are extremely good and user friendly very easy to understand and use.
    Thank you.

    Default d2h

    i have tried tata-sky and videocon-d2h. i found d2h much better than tata-sky. the piture quality of d2h is much better. d2h is alos very cheap and also has a lot more chanels. the active services of d2h are very impressive

    it is possible to use normal cable on a videocon-d2h-lcd. but i think it will b very boring to use cable afeter using sumthing as good as videocon-d2h

    d2h's [icture quality as well as signal is far much better than that of TataSky's as d2h uses mpeg-4 technology! servicing is specificaly of excellent quality as they hav 2/3 toll-free numbers...so it is always very easy to get in touch with the engineers if something goes wrong....i hav complete trust in d2h!!

    very true.....doubting the quality of videocon-d2h obviously means tht this fello is an airtel promoter....with mpeg-4 technology, videocon-d2h is much better than airtel or tatasky!!

    airtel is pretty much rubbish according to me....one of my friends had bought airtel just 3 months ago.......and when i asked him about his experience, he said tht the service is really crap....even when there is very light rain or wind, the airtel-dth shows 'no signal'...he even told me tht the help-line tht they have given is generally always 'busy'

    Can somebody tell me How long will the connection remain valid if I don't recharge? Suppose I am abroad and not able to recharge for couple of months.

    Connection remains valid till 15 days from the date of expiry. Thereafter, reconnection charges are applied. So it is best that connection remains active.

    You can charge from abroad also via internet banking or credit card.

    Ok friends, i just want to know 1 thing - I hav seen many comments praising the signal quality of d2h.

    I only want to know whether this is even better than Reliance Big TV? i mean people complain that its Signal fails the moment there is slightest of Rain....is the same thing happening with d2h?
    And even if that happens, within how much time it gets restored? Coz i have heard diff views abt Reliance - some say it resumes in a few minutes, and some say it lasts until the Rain stops.....

    Pls let me know, coz i need to make a decision by the end of this month!!

    Thanks!

    And now the best part is they have added ten cricket too . . I like their service, more than dish tv and tata sky.. Other DTH are just way too expensive and not in my budget too. .

    Default STB downgrade

    Guys Please help me here. I was having a problem with my 2 weeks old connection of again again no signal issue for last two days, they realigned my dish and it came fine.. But the problem is that they replaced my brand new STB 1103 with an older 1101R ( rusted) without any proper explanation. I again called up customer service but I am still not convinced with their answer as it doesn't matter etc. Shouldn't I be worried here guys

    Default Dont Buy Airtel Digital Tv

    Dear Friend..never buy airtel D2h as the customer supports is worst.Channel Packages will be added without your concern.Deduction of amount from your account is a common problem.Their nodal officers also don't know how to speak to a customer.So i will suggest not to buy airtel go for videocon or tata sky.

    I ordered Videocon D2H from Connect India at a very reasonable price. They offered 18% discount on the same.
    It is one of the best platform to compare and buy.Without any delay the product was delivered to my home.

    Their Customer Care executive helped me in sorting out all my queries related to its activation till choosing the plan.

    Many Thanks Connect India for a hassle-free service !

    Best! I have to admit, their monsoon time reception is also very amazing. I can say that its way better than TataSky any day. Coz i moved from there. For other DTH providers others may already have shed some light.

    I read someone saying that ealier in the thread that he/she is facing connection issues. I would think that is an odd one-off case. For me, the last year I had it, probably lost connection in the rains twice, one for 5 minutes and the other for 30 minutes. And my last year with TS, connection was lost even on bright sunny day. And its not like i was in the suburbs or some village. Heart of Pune city.

    There is no catch. Maximum channel at 275 i hear. At the time mine was 340 i guess. Took something like 380 a month including tax.

    Does Videocon have HD recording box like tata sky does? I have tata sky but dont have the recodring box yet and I am planning to get it. It did not occur to me that other service providers may also have recording boxes. Off to DTH company websites

    Check their website. It should have all the info you need.

    Also wanted to add, do not base your opinion on websites, like mouthsut. Lots of dimwitted people there posting nonsense coz they faced an issue.
