TataSky is arbitrary, do not care customers .Do not care TRAI.

TRAI should put in place for one set top box for all D T H operators such that a consumer need not spend for new set top box when he wants to go for another D T H operator


dth companies are taking undue advantage of digitisation process by increasing price of packages quarterly
