I am seeing SRK ads promoting Videocon DDB!It also shows that it supports satellite TV!!Doesnt it violate his deal with Dish tv?Or has dish tv deal expired??If deal has not expired.. I am sure soon we will get court cases!Or am I missing something?
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.
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.
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.
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.
