I was present during the TATA Sky installation at my Sisters place. After the entire installation episode what I came to know from the Engineer was that when you shift your residence, you need to return your old dish to your distributor & have to procure a new dish & pay Rs. 1000 as installation charges at your new residence from a new distributor. The only equipment that you own is the Digicomp (the Set-top box) which is currently priced at Rs. 2999. Any comments on this ?

Yeah i guess wat you are saying is true, But what is the case with Zee DishTV ? Are they providing the dish and free re-location of connection ?

Not sure about the relocation charges. But in case of DishTV, even the STB belongs to them - the amount taken by them is for 5 years rental of the box

This is a non-issue as any halfway competent electricial would be able to install it at the new location for 50-100 bucks.

I think this thread is just stupid.... B'coz if you move to a new locality.... u still have to pay installation charges to the cable operator, if u don't want to use ur DTH ? And getting the Dish installed by a electrician makes more sense. Don't inform TataSky of the change of address, how are they going to know ?

Read 1 of the posts which rightly says that if you don't intimate TATA Sky abt change of address they might terminate your connection if they come to know. Also someone has rightly said that by getting it done from an Electrician u might end up saving temporarily, but later on if u hv to contact TATA Sky for some major issue u compulsorily hv to intimate them abt ur address change & end up paying Rs. 1000.

If you can still hol on to the older address for billing purposes i guess, but how many can do that.

As it stands You took out a contract with Tata Sky and if you dont like it then choose some one else.

Until then you are bound by whatever you signed for.

Sucks..i know..but maybe with more players entering the same space..things might improve.

Do you have to buy a new Dish when you shift houses or only the 1000 for installation?

Dish is not owned by u so u don't have to buy it... U just have to call tatasky for relocation of the dish and they will do it themself... Will cost u 1000 rs.
