There is 2line if you are new then you are on 1st line which is local cable line which will only give you 150+ channels, after few days you will be shifted to STB line which will give you around 296+ channels,
i called up INCABLE main office andheri east - the person on the other line said my account is not yet registered with us. i also told him about the channels he said its not possible to get 296. then he said it depends on the local cable operator or dual feed signal must be there.
are u paying according to the CAS system rates or regular as was before.
also by when u got all the channels on the STB ie time frame after installing the new STB
Later, as i said he switch my Line , then i got 260+ channel and now its 296+
i am getting MY TV + COMEDY CENTRAL on the STB but no local channels + no M tunes
per this list there are only 180 tv channels + 17 radio channels on STB NON CAS Areas in mumbai
