HELP HELP HELP !!!!!We are shifting from our existing home to our new home which is a housing society having Videocon Common Antenna Service. Right now I have TataSky (Standard) which may be not usable. I came to know that I will be offered price of new STB as well as channel packages at low cost. Pl. help me to take a right decision in terms of cost & picture quality on below issues.1) How is Videocon DTH quality compare to TATA sky2) Is there any price difference between channel packages / number of channels3) If I switch to Videocon, then what should I do with my existing TataSky4) Is there any other issues (good or bad) with Common Antenna Service?(Pl. note that I am not a hardcore TV addict and I used to watch only 1-2 hrs a day which contains mainly some Marathi channels / News / English Movies / Music Channels / Nat-Discovery channels)I will be thankful if I get better reply.

I think TS is best DTH in India, They have transpoder space problem thats why they are not able to add new channels. once the satellite GSAT 10 is launched they will give more channels than anybody else. PQ of TS is surely much much better than d2h.

having used both i would say service and Picture quality of TS & D2h is on par. D2H is way ahead in terms of value for money pricing.if you are looking for south Indian channels then forget TS and get D2h.

For the past 2 days i have been comparing the channel packaging price....OMG if i was with d2H i would be saving a min of Rs. 1500 per year and get more channels...i made a mistake last August in opting for TS HD+....

from what i remember back in august last year, videocon was not so great wrt hd channels. and in a couple of months other dth service providers might offer a better deal than videocon. it's what available right now that matters. you cannot compare the offerings of today with offerings one year ago!

And I read somewhere that TS is expected to bounce back with some satellite launch or something later this year, plus Videocon DVRs are a little hard to find.
My suggestion stick around with TS atleast till year-end.

And agree with Admin, today D2H is best, TS was probably the best when you got that. So, wait & watch , I would say.

May be i could wait and watch till diwali or year end...but the problem with TS is that package pricing...If i was with D2H i would be easily saving Rs. 1500 per year...

Yeah, but the problems I see are - a) Availability of HD DVR - Not able to get it in Chennai , neither online b)TS just might overtake D2H in channels if that is a factorSo, keep that in mind before you jump over.
