Some Nice Stats in this article :


There are approximately 140 million homes with a television set in the country; almost 92 per cent of these (136 million homes) come under the cable and satellite (C&S) connectivity. The rest access only terrestrial channels (read Doordarshan channels). Of these C&S homes, cable reaches 94 million homes, while the rest are connected by either DTH (direct-to-home, which is 41 million) or HITS and IP TV (Internet Protocol TV), which has a base of around 1 million.

Of the 94 million cable homes, a large chunk (about 88 million) is still analogue, while a meagre six million homes are watching TV through set-top boxes (that receive and decode digital TV signals). There are some major disadvantages in the analogue cable system. It cannot carry more than 90-100 channels, while there are more than 600 channels available.
