TataSky.com updated with details – war heats up with Dish TV India

August 24, 2006

I have been waiting for the Tata Sky package details and at last its available. After having bugged down for quite some time due to the cable monopoly, I had decided to buy a wireless (cable-free) TV solution – that is DTH (Direct To Home).

Was worried for quite sometime because Dish TV India were the only guys to provide a decent television package. And I din’t want to be a victim of one more monoply. And when TataSky was introduced I was delighted and I even registered at their site. But at that time their site din’t carry any of the package or subscription details.

But today, I see that the site has been updated with all the details right from the packages to cost to dealer locations.

They are offering 55 channels for a monthly rent of Rs.200. Though the channel lineup looks so tiny when compared to Dish TV’s 125 channels, TataSky promises to give its customer any channels that are being added during the inital offer period, for FREE!! (at least thats what I could interpret from their website).

There is also an features page which lists out all the features of the Set Top Box which comes as a part of the hardware. A flash based demo is available which is quite impressive.

Dish TV India folks have been relentlessly putting on their advertisement on every available billboard that is available in the city. Clearly a sign of last minute effort to pull in every customer they could towards their DTH solution. To retaliate this, TataSky folks seem to be taking on every billboard they could find to announce their entry into the DTH market.

Dish TV had already been complaining that Sky (Star TV group) was not offering their channel lineup (the star channels). Now that Sky was partering with Tata sons to provide the star channel lineup, they had to give their channels to Dish TV or face the wrath of TRAI for being unethical. Since Dish TV now had the Star channel lineup added to their bouquet, few weeks before Tata Sky was launched, they have been aggresively advertising to use it to their advantage.

Now this is going to be an interesting war between two main DTH operators – Dish TV India being pioneers in bringing DTH to India and have the first-comer advantage and the Tata Sky having a very good brand image with Indians and having lots of money, people and business power. I am not sure how the war is going to end, but I see one clear winner (thats we consumers) and one sure loser (thats the cable TV operator :)).

I have to select between one of the DTH operators. I am not sure whom to go with. Let me wait for few more days before I choose.

    Wow!!.. so many of you interested in TataSky. Well, most of you want the package and dealership details. Request you to refer their website URL http://www.tatasky.com

    Well, any settopbox, let that be cable based or dish based will work with only one Television Set. In case you need to use the same dish for 2 different TVs, then you need to get a sepecial hardware. This hardware is provided by TataSky (from what I understand from their website).

    Of course you need to pay something extra to have a second TV connected to the same Dish. In this case, TataSky charges around Rs.100 for an additional TV. From what I know, this holds good for even the cable television. The cable guy charges you an extra amount if you have the cable connected to an additonal TV in your house.

    It took 15 days and numerous phone calls to the shopkeeper, service center, Zee head office, n number of sales people, technicians to get them to come over to my home and install the DISH TV antennae. DISH TV phone helpdesk standard response was that they don’t handle setups and I should talk to the dealer. Dealer said talk to service center. Service center said they’re sending the guy and never sent him.

    This was not the end of it..now another week passed before the maxi service got activated. This too after tons of phone calls where I was always told it would be taken care of, but never happened.

    Now the BIG shock….I expected good quality Video, somewhere near DVD quality since this being digital n all….No such luck…this is a majorly compressed MPEG2 video feed !! It is worse than VCD quality. Sound is near MONO unless you use headphones. I thought that signal strength maybe causing this, but I had 75-76% signal, which DISH TV tech said was the max he had seen himself. people usually get 60-65%.

    Damn !! My cable looked and sounded so much better with full bandwidth, and this DTH looked like small video clip made full screen on my 29 inch TV. I guess it’s passable on smaller 21” screens but looks bad and patchy on a 29”.

    My advice…don’t go for this DTH hype till they improve their service.

    P.S. another thing…they recently did a software upgrade and dumbed down the set top box. now you cannot make any system changes and can’t even see the signal strength. The channel surfing has also become a pain..instead of quickly shifting between screenful of channel menu, now I have to scroll through each and every channel to reach the desired channel. Their telephone support says there is no way to go back to the old firmware. They claim this new one is very user friendly. How is it user friendly when the users don’t like it?? their active channels are just marketting hype to attract new customers comparing their service with TATA SKY. No one watches their silly active patchwork.

    I don;t know about TATA SKY but DISH TV will give you that cheap “quantity and no quality” feeling that reliance CDMA phones gave.

    Dish India TV are arrgant and hostile brats. Their dealers will sell you the HW with great promises and their Ho in Noide will flatly refuse to to fulfill any of them (that is if you are lucky enough to be able to contact them- they never reply to your E-mails). These guys have hob nob with dealers to fleece the customers. I strongly suggest you guys to evaluate Tata Sky or even your own old cable walla and not to fall in the trap set by Dish India TV.

    Tatasky channels are growing each week but Iam worried about the pricing…I think end of oct will say it all how they are going to price….Dth is only meant for houses which have one tv or else its far too expensive to be having more than one stb….and dear HG visit the tatasky site and dish tv site for the numbers to contact them….I personally would say tatasky customer care is fantastic(though we will know only when they have huge subscriber base) and so is the quality of signals compared to dishtv who were woeful the least I can say….Remember its not about buying the product its your customer care that really matters…..I have read many bad reviews about dish tv so be careful with the choice you make…..

    Sir / Madam

    I am waiting for new pakages/ new option to choose channes in Tatasky that is more flexability. I came from assam to delhi so i am not interested in hindi channel, I want english packages. If tatasky wants to go beyond hindi versed people than it has to adopt on international languse baised package, so that every on can understand and want to watch the channels.

    TATA SKY ROCKS !!!

  107. Srinivas Reddy permalink
    December 4, 2006 8:01 pm

    When Tata Sky was just announed, I was looking for a DTH service. I had a chance to compare Dish and Tata. Dish was offering all 125 channels for Rs 300+ tax of Rs 74 (Total of Rs 374). Ofcourse you have the option of chosing different packages based on your choice (you have to select a base package called welcome package that costs Rs 180 (for south India it’s Rs 160). I am a movie buff so in addition to welcome pack I selected Dish Plus packages (Rs 125) which contains all movie channels, kids channels and history channel (now the total is Rs Rs 285). However for Rs 300, Dish provides all 125 channels it offers so by paying extra Rs 15, I could get ALL. Ofcourse there is a tax component to Rs 300 which takes the price to Rs 374/-.

    On the other hand, Tata Sky was offering very limited channels at Rs 200 (No package concept. Just one package). I could not find many of my favourite channels and also it was a special offer which means they would hike the price in future.

    So I took decison to go with Dish TV. I took the list of dealers in Chennai and was fortunate to get a good dealer. Deal signed in 1 hour and within 48hours I could watch TV. As far as quality of signal is concerned, it’s brilliant and I’m extremely thrilled with DVD quality picture and sound. I have not seen Tata so I have no idea about it.

    I just verified the Tata site and I could see the price has hiked to Rs 300 (inclusive of all taxes). Compared to Dish this is cheaper (compared to Rs 374) however there are two things to note. 1. Dish offers 125 channels where as Tata offers 100 channels (do your home work on what channels you want to watch) 2. Dish offers selection of various packages so if you can find all your favourite channels in some packages so you may be paying much less than Tata Sky.

    In summary, decide what channels you want to watch and go accordingly. DO NOT GET excited about 100 or 200 channels as there are number of FREE TO AIR channels that are also included in the list, so eliminate free to air channels and then compare both.

    For UAE users plz ask any satellite dish selling shops to install dish for NSS 6 satellite. You then connect your disht tv receiver. You may need only a 100 cms dish dear UAE people. And hey, does anyone know what size dish is required for TATA SKY in the UAE

  109. Gnelsons77 permalink
    December 10, 2006 10:45 am

    you will require 180 cms wide dish to get tatasky in uae. Get the Decoder from India, ask any local dish guy to install it for u, will charge around 200 Dhs for installation.
    Hope this helps

There are about twenty millons Urdu speaking perosns throught India and you ahve ignored the existance of these peoples.There are many Indian Channels exlusively beamed for Urdu speaking peoples like DD National urdu, ETV Urdu, Pease T.V. They are all free to air and are INDIAN in all respect. There are other populars channels like Q TV, GEO, ARY Digitital, Saudi and Dubai TV.

    Please look in to the matter and include the urdu channel.

    FACT ABOUT TATA
    ……..Will take you for a ride

    I bought a Tata Sky box on 6-1-07 after the assurance from the call centre that it would be installed on 7-1-07. It was not done and on 10-1-07 I was given a date as 11-1-07 for installation. On 12-1-07 I called up Tata Sky to know that they have shortage of installer and it would take another 2-3 days for installation. Can you imagine a company like TATA failing to honour their own commitments, to me it is noT surprising, IT IS AN INDIAN COMPANY.

    I SPOKE TO THE HEAD, KARAN AND HIS SENIOR MEGHNA, THE ONLY REPLY IS “WE WILL TRY TO GET THE JOB DONE AT THE EARLIEST, AND YOU WILL GET A CALL SOON” No time frame is specified for installation, this is a typical Indian answer, that the reason, outside companies are more successful than Indian companies like TATA.

    I heard about both Dish TV and Tatasky. Did not know much but the Tata name in India goes for quality and good service so opted for it. Was dissapointed to learn, after it was installed, that every time we have to ring up Tatasky either for a complaint or to update–amount not yet known– we are required to ring Mohali on their Northern India grid. Not having a BSNL connection, eacgh call is a trunk phone. Going through my cell bills, I have already spent over Rs 400/- on these. It is inconvenient to call Mohali all the time. They should have a call centre in Delhi and renewals should also be over the net like in the case of world space.

    Hi
    Im having tatasky at my home. It cost me around Rs 4500 with 6 months subscription. When i bought it the monthly renntal was Rs 200 per month, but now i see in thier website that it has been raised to Rs 300. So all those who are planning to buy DTH, you can try DishTV as they are providing all the same channels for Rs 260. I think tatasky is costlier compared to DishTV.
