Useless channels .monthly charge hiked from 180 rs to 230 rs in 6 months .


Ya true, have heard someone saying here that he will buy new connection every year for more offers.


As per my personnel experience Tata Sky DTH is good and better than other DTH service providers like airtel digital TV, DishTV and Videocon. I have been using Tata Sky from few months and interms of Quality of Signal strength, customer care services, Addon options (Ala-carte), Movies on Demand, and many more other services are far better than other DTH service providers.

It may be good for your place. But here it’s terrible experience using TataSky. I did the mistake to take tatasky connection.

But that is also gone.
Really ? disappointing.
