I hope they give a discount of 3000 in liue of exchange of the current stb's.Would love to have pip and recording, coz the pip feature in my Samsung tv has been rendered useless since i started using DTH
The problem is that companies here seem to think that Indians don't want / don't know of DVRs etc (and to an extent they are right). Otherwise when this whole CAS / DTH thing hit, would it not make complete sense to offer DVRs instead of regular plain jane 10 year old technology STBs?? IMO DVRs would be huuuuuuugeee here, especially since so many people are addicted to saas-bahu serials (albeit tragic). That and cricket alone will ensure excellent sales of DVRs.
hii know ur anxiety for the DVR set top box frm Tata Sky. TATA SKY is in the process for those & by mid 2007 they will be out at a cheaper price. as far as Dish tv is concerned they always try to make money. the DVR BOXES frm dish tv are priced btw 15000-25000 INR. The boxes are not manufactured by an infamous company. Humax has launched its DVR Boxes for SKY Which are being tested for Indian Standards. Once they confirm it they will release it to the market
