STOP WHINING LIKE THAT! ALTHOUGH STILL RUDIMENTARY, THHIS IS THE WAY TO GO.
AND DUDE, YOU COULD VERY WELL DECIDE TO SAVE UP ON YOUR MONEY BY WATCHING ftaS, BUT JUST DONT GIVE US UR WHINING.. WE HAVE BEEN AT THE RECEIVING END OF THE CABLE OPERATORS' MONOPOLY FOR A DECADE. JUST WHEN WE ARE MOVING TOWARDS A MORE TRANSPARENT AND FREER SYSTEM, ITS PEOPLE LIKE YOU WHO START TO WHINE, AND ULTIMATELY RUIN IT ALL.

^sorry. but i feel strongly about this whole issue. and i think there are no two views about what the future of tv is in india. this, as i said, is a very basic and rudimentary step, but one in the right direction.

DON"T POST IN CAPS LOCK! Maybe that would work (reffering to the first post) but I don't think you will get enough people to do that.

Mods merge the two threads.Pratik , i don't blame you coz that kind of mentality has always been the root of the problems for our country still being backward. But i'm pleased that the government has finally woken up from their slumber and taking steps in the right direction , one of which is to bring people like you to senses. Before ranting about the system take a look at other countries where such system is already in place and has been hugely successful.You bitch about paying more money but point me one country where television viewing is cheap. We are not talking about doordarshan or AIR here but huge private channels who deliver quality content to your house. I'd suggest you visit the TRAI website and first get educated about CAS before coming in with such rants.

CAS is not going to Stop Cable OPerator's monopoly. Because u going to get signals from them only even with CAS. Only thing is you have 2 pay more money for same channels to them or cut down your pay channels to reduce bills. Even u cut down channels; u r bound to pay for set top box !! Cable operators monopoly can only be broken it u opt for DTH service like Tata Sky; but in any case TV Channels will continue to have monopoly.

If u think in positive manner with little bit patience, the we can turn the pay channels to free for our own benefit and break away TV channel owners monopoly. Hope u think in all aspects !!

Do you really think the all the pay channels will turn to free channels o_O ... thats pretty impossible, even they need to make profit . Paid channels cant run on advertisers alone . I think cas system is pretty good bcoz i am sure there are hardly 20-30 channels i need .. and also there will be channel packages ( like espn-star in 1 pack ... and also other channels having same owners) . Only thing i hate is one connection for 1 TV .. it was too easy to split cable wire in two :p

the basic idea of paid channels was to make them advertisement free. but we see more and more advertising on highly paid channels like espn star.

i had like them to broadcast a formula 1 race with no ads WHEN the actual racing is taking place. but no. that was not the case. things were pathetic in the most recent season.

i guess the basic idea of pay channels is to be ad-free only...if they give ads, no sense of being it a pay channel... -_-
