New connection offer on Airtel Digital TV by Amazon
Read this thread to know whether the offer on Airtel Digital TV connection given by Amazon is a good one or not.
I purchased a TV from Amazon recently. I got an activation code offer from Amazon which comes with a 35% discount on new Airtel DTH connection plus first-month subscription free. I ended up paying Rs.3620 for the two set-top boxes and the cable. Did I pay more?
Actually, I was told by airtel care to pay Rs. 1590 ( which is the offer amount) for SOUTH NEW MEGA HD whose initial subscription amount is Rs.2000 something. I was not able to see this info on their website though. The Airtel digital executive convinced me to buy two set-top boxes for two TVs at Rs.1590 each (Total : Rs. 3180) plus he asked me to pay further Rs.440 for the cable charges.
I had an airtel antenna already with me presented by my neighbor. The Airtel guy used the same antenna for installation. I believe the antenna costs around Rs.1000. When I told the same to Airtel customer care, they said nothing will be deducted towards the same. Is this offer some kind of a gimmick where we ended up paying the same amount or more than what you get outside? Awaiting your inputs on this. Thanks in advance.
