sorry to say this harish.. but your basic premise that you stayed with ts or any DTH with a rider is wrong in the first place. Now why do you fault sibal for this?I guess in the current scenario DTH is the best bet if you are absolutely certain about the channels you want to watch. There are multiple options: providers, packs, extras and the likes. Of course the final choice will still be yours. No DTH blackmails you in any case for staying on with them. TS anyways wasnt renowned for giving a good set of regional channels. You yourself signed on giving them the liberty to drop channels. And I suppose the majority folks around will concur that TS or any DTH drops channels after a decent print advert. If you missed it, all I can say is that it is your misjudgement.
