Dish TV India is the Leading DTH Service Provider in India

Dish TV India is currently the leading DTH service provider in India with a subscriber base of close to 40 million. Dish TV’ subscriber base also includes that of D2h subscriber base because both the parties announced merged last year. In other news, Dish TV is said to be in talks with Airtel Digital TV for a possible merger, but a recent report added that the talks fell apart over the stock valuation issues.

It’s said that Airtel Digital TV and others are looking at a per-share price of around Rs 35, which is lower than what Dish TV’s expectation price of Rs 45. If the merger happens, Dish TV and Airtel Digital TV will become the leading DTH operator in India with 60% market share.
