I don't think picking indivudual channels will be economical, for example Sony, Discovery and Sab TV will probably cost almost as much as the whole Sony One alliance package.Most people will probably go for a package with all channels costing around Rs. 400 unless you can just pick channels from some particular bouquets and cut out othes entirely.Of course it all depends on how Tata Sky package their channels.

i still believe CAS is more feasable. At rs 5 a channel, I can just get 20 of the channels i like and bring the cable bill down to around 220.

i havent bought Tata Sky bcos of the future rates. Even if they give some idea like it wont cost above 300 rs for the same channels what they are offering now, it would be good enough.

and i do not like the idea of paying in advance for the locked stb which wont support competing dth services.

The wise thing to do is persist with the present cable for another 6 months and see how the services like dth ,cas and iptv come up. By then we will have a better idea about what thing is relatively better and we can then make a choice accordingly.

I pay 100 rs for 105 channels to my cable operator which includes all pay channels and have 2 tvs in home with reasonably good quality. Can get it for 75 Rs. from another cable operator...yea I said 75, thats competition for you. Tell me if any DTH can give anything like that ie 100 Rs. for 105 channels and on 2 tvs.

South Delhi..lolActually my cable operator has taken the connection from other cable operator (Run by SpectraNet) and I believe is paying lump sum money to them. Now since cable opearator doesn't really have to pay per channels or worry too much about the taxes or maintaing dishs etc. He can afford to give connection cheaply.Hes not alone who has done that, there r many others who have done this and are charging ranging from 100 - 150 Rs.
