    Whether Videocon will continue it’s service in TN or not ? Cc telling it’s upgrading process and no stv will get activated for certain period which is unknown !
    On videocon side they promising tat they stay back in 5 out of 13 circles incl TN !
    Some retailers telling tat there will be a silent merge with reliance !
    I’m confused whether to port out or not since their offers are unbeatable !
