When I first got DishTV an year or so back, I thought that it didn’t had a wide variety of channels, rightly so, just the regional channels, Zee stuff and no sports channels, no SabTV, No Star, etc. Actually people at my home thought that getting DishTV was a bad idea. It would be exaggeration if I say that I knew it wasn’t and stuff, because I thought the same, DishTV = Bad Idea.
Our cable operator provided much more channels after all, even when there was no clarity, we thought we could bear with it. But getting DishTV was a significant investment (Rs. 10k), so going back to the ancient era would had been a tad too costly.
We stuck with DishTV, and the channels started growing in number, day by day, we got more and more channels. What was 75 to start off with, has become 165 by date, along with 30 Radio Channels, who needs Worldspace?
It now has all channels I can think of, ranging from Sony’s channels to the Star Channels, Zee’s Channels have always been there, National Geographic Channel, Discovery, Pogo, Disney Channel, all the news channels, everything.
Therefore I am pretty happy with the DishTV channel bonanza, will give you people a list of available channels pretty soon as well, so you can actually know which channels are there by this Satellite provider.
The same thing that was with DishTV is now happening with TataSky although, it reportedly only has around 70 Channels to start off with, therefore I’d like to advise all the subscribers of TataSky to stick with it and to not look around in anguish as the channels will come with time too, and you will regret the days you used to curse your dear little Dish.
Nevertheless, be Optimistic!
