DVDs never got popular in india. it's hard to find stores even in gurgaon which carries DVDs. internet and easy accessibility to content on the net has made situation worse.

HDTV is a long way off in India but once it lands here , internet will never match HDTV broadcast. Youtube have already received a lot of notices due to hosting copyrighted videos on their servers. Bittorrent have faced lawsuits for letting people download movies and songs and lately they have signed a deal with Motion pictures. The more internet grows the more it's going to be difficult to curb piracy and all the big companies are not going to sit and watch it. I said it yesterday and i say it again. Internet is not far away from being regulated.

We are used to pay very low cable TV bills (200-300 Rs/month).
And we pay Rs.750 for broadband and Rs.500 for landline and pay Rs.350 for mobile.

Speak for yourself. 750 for broadband? Only if you're on BSNL.

A stupid who lives in USA (none other than my brother) said that in USA, people pay around $50 or much more for cable TV while they pay $30 for broadband and $25-30 for unlimited phone plans.[/b]

Except he gets real broadband, we don't. What's the point when you're sweating your ass off as you surf through internet afraid if your bandswidth meter has gone beyond the capped limit? You're comparing totally different things here, and baseless point.

You need HD TV to watch HD transmisison, on ur normal tv you wont find much, if any difference in quality between HD TV and normal tv. In india HD is still a distant dream. We will be renting HD movies before any HD transmission is available. Imagine watching zeetv,doordarshan, star plus on HDtv - will that make any difference? and to watch HD on internet you will need atleast 10-20 Mbps speeds....which aint happening here!

Spot on. HDTV transmission is only possible through satellite TV and cable provided the existing cable wires are replaced with new high data carrying capacity ones.
