Not missing anything. He has been brand ambassador for both these brands for quite some time now. Remember those cheesy Videocon logo change ads? He is only selling a TV, not the connection that comes with it. Just like endorsing Nokia doesn't mean one cannot endorse VodafoneIt's just like Videocon D2H's brand ambassador endorses Videocon's mobile provider rival Idea.

No point is... Nokia and Vodafone are different.

D2H and mobile is different.

But TV and satellite TV... its a more or less a direct link.

Plus the ad clearly shows satellite connection. When I saw the ad.. i was like when did SRK switch to videocon DTH.

then i realised its TV ad not DTH.

Videocon has clearly used a TRICK here. They indirectly made SRK promote their DTH as well.

I am sure Dish tv will have objection. Lets wait and watch.

If I remember right I have seen ads with this thing long back and Dish TV didn't oppose all this while. Moreover both Subhash Chandra and Dhoot are in his friends list, so it is highly doubtful any kind of legal action will even be considered, let alone initiated.

I think his legal team scrutinize his every deal for these traps and he must be knowing what he is doing.

The DDB or whatever it is called is a new ad. I was referring to his endorsement which I clearly remember seeing a long time back and I had the same question that you do now

They had Abhisheik do the DTH ads. They have a deal with SR-K for TV as he has been doing those ads for some time as well. Maybe they might object, and demand removal but I doubt they will drag him to court.

And somewhere in the ad, IIRC, they have mentioned that D2h need not be used with DDB.Really not sure if i read this, or i read the opposite of this! :D

Technically, it comes with support for a DTH STB, however considering that none of the providers want someone else's network on their device, there is practically zero scope for such a thing. Also it is not mandatory to take the D2H connection.
