Gone are the days when the standard definition (SD) picture quality was acceptable. It is the era of full high definition (HD) and 4K quality pictures. Major Direct-to-Home (DTH) operators in India offers users HD Set-Top Boxes (STBs) so that they can watch their favourite content in high-quality visuals. Each of the operators offers its HD STB with different features, benefits, and price. Today, we are listing the HD STBs from Airtel Digital TV, Tata Sky, D2h, Dish TV, and Sun Direct.

Airtel Digital TV - HD STB

Airtel Digital TV is selling its HD STB for Rs 1,300. This STB will enable users to watch satellite TV content in premium quality. Along with that, there is support for Dolby Digital Sound for an enhanced overall experience. Users also get an option for recording their favourite shows and matches which they can play later.

Tata Sky - HD STB

Tata Sky offers its HD STB for Rs 1,499. With this STB, users get to view content in 1080i resolution at an aspect ratio of 16:9. There is also support for Dolby Digital Surround Sound and access to 500+ channels on the platform of Tata Sky. The STB also comes with a range of Tata Sky services included.

Dish TV - DishNXT HD
