The comparison provided in the link is very much biased towards the cable TV operators. If what they claim is very true, why people are shifting from cable to DTH platform? As per my view, the basic things which prompts people to migrate are
1, The rudeness of the cable operator (should have changed by now as the competitor, DTH is now in the picture.)
2, Frequent disconnection due to cable cut, power failure etc etc etc
3, Customer care - a BIG joke.
4, Clarity is very poor, if you are not using an STB
5, If you ask for new channels, the default answer is NO.
6, Value added services - Nil till now.
Once, they work to improve these things, they will retain the huge mass of people who are still with them.

1, The rudeness of the cable operator.

5, If you ask for new channels, the default answer is NO.


Above points are 100% true.
Also they change the channel allocation frequently.
i.e., what you get on channel 4 will get shifted to another channel.
Some times disappears.

DTH service is really a blessing to get out of these problems.

Hi, I do agree the there is lot of Plus point in shifting over to DTH from Cable. All you should understand that, the topic is going for SUN DTH is really worth? and Not 'Going for DTH" worth !!! Sun DTH has lot of disadvantages... Very fist point, the Customer Care... Pathetic service.. they do not even know to speak in english if you call outside TN. And they dont listen what is your question. They will start from the Package details for all your queries. They can read what is there in computer monitor in front of them.. if you ask any question.. they say... they do not know. 2. When you get STAR package and additional english channels, subscription charges will not remain the same. Please bear in mind that there is no more 75/- once SUN has new channels. It is a indirect way of cheating the customers. 3. Though you pay additional 25/- outside TN for tamil channels, still there is no RAJ TV, Jaya Max and other new channels. RAJ TV is not FTA.. in that case why they have not added this into the Pay Channel package. Seeing this, you can expect new channels unless until SUN NETWORK is willing. They may say it is not compatible with MP4 Technology.. but still we are the looser. 4. It is always good to go for a provider who uses the default encryption method for adding new channels.. in that case TATA/DISH they are better in service. 5. We can not say not all the TV's encrypt their signals in new technology as the old tech.. reaches many people in the same cost. SUN has advantages only if you want the following: 1. Want to keep a antenna in your terrace saying.. even you too have DTH2. If you like only South Channels...in minmum cost (as of now)3. Want to listen South FM channels Keep in mind that.. if DDD+ is not there. SUN DIRECT is no where..they are all giving the FTA as of now...:hysterical:

nothing is free in this world..........


dishtv also using ddd+ channels but ur paying 350rs for them......after paying 350 in ddd+ u cannot get ndtv channels,9x,neo sports,neo sports plus, if u want to see all 180 channels, other regional channels in dishtv u have to pay 350 + additional package .........

In Tata Sky u have to pay 350+ for see only 126 channels there is also rajtv channels not avilable.......if u want to see Lifestyle gold and sports gold u have to pay extra amount,, to receive all channels in tatasky u required to pay 421rs........


every product has its advantages and disadvantages........
 
nothing is free in this worldi agree with u guys for paying 350rs in Tata Sky/dishtv do u get all ur language channels if so whts the use and ur worrying for rs 75 for not adding jaya max and rajtvfor me (kerala-malayalam) package iam 100% satisfied becuse i am getting all the malayalam channels (14 all are fta channels) iam waiting for sundth adding star,Sony and zee packages no doubt for addtional pay channels u need to paybut the main diffrence between tatsky/dishtv with sundth is ur base package for rs 75 u get all ur local language channels as ur base package + addional cost for the channels u required but in tatsky/dishtv base package is not ur local language its based on hindi and not included all ur local language so there is a diffrence in monthly cost dont forget ur paying rs 50 for only sun package in tatasky(total 350) every product has its advantages and disadvantages........ if ur wise u buy only the product that gives u wht u want (or maximum)
 
Hi All, Thanks for all your reply. Yes. it make sense for all DTH palyers when they add a new channel. All we need to see that the base package is our regional channels which will help to avoid the additional expenses in buying a package unlike TS/Dish TV. I feel the new era will be those who are all giving the singals in Pay channel mode (encryption method) will reduce the cost, so DTH players will reduce the cost of the package little more. As a starter, we cannot expect SUN DTH to perform more.. hope they will enchance their service in terms of customer care, Technology and cost. But still it depends the person to decide which DTH to go? So, no one can change the view once they decided to go for DTH with particular operator. I am clsoing this topic as we can discuss further about the Technology and new channel list, tricks about SUN DTH. Thanks.
 


DishTV has maximum channels & best packages be it South India or All India or International channels. :thumbsup:
 
Yes of-course but compare the cost also.No one will offer cost effective as SUN did. We have to look in to the villages and towns also which people may not invest 3000+ for DTH receivers and 200+ as subscription.:thumbsup:
