See that logo at the bottom right... As mentioned by a forum member in another thread, Airtel is working hard to ruin the IPTV experience for all the people who are hooked on to it.

Please post your opinions about the addition of Airtel branding on the channel feeds. I would forward the responses to Airtel management people. I sincerely hope they would listen and ensure that the feed remains pure and we do not end up seeing their branding on each and every channel...

It is simply unacceptable. IPTV has to be better than DTH services out there.

As the DTH/IPTV provider is required to provide fingerprinting (The Various nos.which are seen on the screen from time to time... fortunately not on Airtel IPTV) by the Broadcasters and we have to bear with these nos. popping on most undesired parts of the screen from time to time. BUT There is no requirement of the DTH/IPTV Providers to add their branding on the screen. All the DTH Providers (At least TS and Dish ) added their branding as afterthought. It is just cool to add their brand and get free advertising I guess. If airtel is going to add the logos, it will be well within its rights to do so(But it is not mandatory to add its logo). We as consumers will be greatly harmed if we do not protest this. We know the airtel brand and we know that we are not going to change our service provider even if there any more ludicrous offering made to us. We are very satisfied with QoS of Airtel (Though their is more scope for improvements). So Airtel PLEASE don't start to put your logo on those channels. Let it be like International broadcasters like comcast/directv etc

righto. they have no acceptable reasons to put their branding on the channels. they charge the money they want from us customers. we should get the feed undisturbed. the logo messes up the whole look of the programming. i have not seen international programming with the cable company's logo slapped on them. it is just the channel's own logo that is visible on the feed. totally unacceptable.
