TataSky slashes multi TV connection price for HD set top box to Rs.999

By July 8th, 2016 AT 3:38 PM

TataSky the leading DTH operator in an attempt to boost its HD content subscription has slashed the price of its HD set top box to Rs.999 inclusive of first month subscription fee. The cost of the same initially used to be Rs.1800 for the set top box plus Rs.240 for first month subscription totalling to Rs.2040 which translates to more than Rs.1000 of saving on adding HD multi TV connections.

To make the deal even sweeter, TataSky is also throwing in a complementary 1 month free HD access fee for subscribers who are not already subscribed to it (The HD access fee of Rs.175 applies to the main connection after the first free month and the benefits are applied to all multi connections under the same subscriber id). Subscribers who do not wish to continue with the HD access fee post the first free month can manually deselect it from the account management page.

It is also worth noting that TataSky has not made any change in the price of the standard definition set top box which costs Rs.1600 exclusive of subscription fee, which means it will now be cheaper to buy a HD STB than a SD STB. Even subscribers who have chosen to stick with legacy CRT Tv sets which do not support an HDMI port can still go for the cheaper HD set top box and connect it to the Tv using composite AV wires.

Subscribers wishing to take advantage of this price cut can give a missed call to 7204772047 and TataSky back end team will get in touch with them for the installation process.

I have both Dish TV HD (used for 1.5 years and now lying idle) and recently bought Tata Sky by ordering it on eBay. Comparing both, Tata Sky is way ahead of Dish TV in many aspects. Tata is a happening player in market which innovates more frequently than others. Picture quality of TS is much better than Dish TV and their SD quality is 75% of HD. In others SD is 40% of HD. HD quality is just awesome with Tata Sky. My monthly spending on Dish TV was Rs. 365/month (without HD) as per my channel preference. Was… Read more »

I personally haven’t seen much difference in SD qualities of different DTH services. Biggest factor is HDMI. If you watch SD channels on a set top box connected to the TV via a HDMI cable, there will be marked difference in the video and audio quality as compared to on AV cable because it’s not digital.

Yes, I asked them for a HD demo as we have one DEN connection as well. Their HD quality was a bit inferior than DTH but for Rs. 300 it’s good. No package drama nor any disruptions in monsoons, plus no payment reminder headache from calls and SMS.They don’t carry NewsX and many international news channels like CNN, RT, DW so had to drop the idea of installing it. HD STB cost was Rs. 2000. DEN is getting worse by the day though. In our circle they aren’t showing Times Now of all channels would you believe.
