Seems like Hathway HD had been launched. Enquired with CC and they said that bookings should begin 1st week of Sept. Currently they are only providing demos. Gave me a cell phone number to contact for a demo. CC wasn't helpful beyond that and haven't managed to get through the cell no all day.Anyone booked the demo? or have any pricing details on the box and/or HD channel list?

HATHway HD, good move...It is really The sleeping tiger of India.Really hoping they will launch some good products in tv and broadband space. Cable BB targets depends a lot on their commitment.:rose:They need to re-invent otherwise DTH will really kill them in a matter of 1 or 2 year. there market cap has already tanked thanks to DTH.:wink (2):

But if they are going HD, then it will surely hit the DTH players badly. Coz the main advantage of DTH is that we get HD channels on it. Yeah may be they wud still hold the edge in the DVR section, but still, for those who just want to watch HD, they can always rely on Cable line, rather than DTH, which is prone to be affected by sudden weather changes over here.Or may be if the Cable guy is too bad, then it wud affect that particular area, but still HD on cable line is really promising.

I wud suggest u wait till this comes before u "kick" out any DTH. Just add enough amounts to continue ur subscription for that much period. When HD comes buy that box only. Else u will end up spending twice on STBs.

Actually i was having the hathway STB about 2 years back...i used that STB for about 6 months and when i returned it got my whole money back :p :D

----------

Well i still have about 3 months balance in my account after the annual pack is over :confused:

I was just wondering was anyone able to replace HDD in the DVR over here??

Still not sure how this entire things is going to work.. I mean we hardly have HD channels to begin with... And even for the present ones they will charge more...
