Which is the best DTH - Videocon or Dish TV?

Guest Author: selva03 Mar 2015

Videocon is best. Tata Sky is better.

My initial impression on Videocon d2h was good but after using it for nearly 1 year I came to a conclusion that Videocon d2h is fooling the customers in its own way. Here the equation is,If you opt for a base pack (south silver Rs. 190/-), then you won't get proper music and movie channels preferably Hindi, for those channels you may opt for gold pack (Rs. 241/-) which is a bit costly. Here also you won't get any sports channels, for those sports channels you may opt for a gold sports pack (Rs 325/-). Even here you won't get any English movies channels, for those channels you have to opt for a platinum or diamond packs (Rs385 or 445). So finally when you come to these platinum or diamond packs you can see a ‘*' stating that to avail HD channels please upgrade to South Platinum HD (Rs.590/-).

South HD access for other packages is Rs.150/- per month. Here the conclusion is, you start with a Rs190/- plan and you will end with a Rs.590/- plan which is more than 3 times. In my 1 year of experience I have noticed that they increased the price twice. Where as other DTH provider who can provide at least minimum 1 or 2 channels in each sector at a base pack range. Think before you select and make your decision wise.

My impression on Videocon d2h was good but after using it for 2 yrs I experienced quite a lot of problems. The advertisement is different from what you enjoy. The price of pack also higher than the other DTH providers.

When the renewal comes within 4 or five days they used to send signals stating that your smart card not inserted properly. This happens not just one time but for a number of times in an entire day, when you opt to view. This is ridiculous. While calling the customer care support, they are politely asking queries one by one by consuming our talk time to the tune of at least Rs.10/- This is fate of the customer. I don't understand the channels 99, 100 & 101 are forcibly appearing even in cyclone and take away our valuable time. These channels are not applicable to Smart card violation. What is the fun of it ? Has anybody else experienced this and elaborate on my agony?
