Factors to consider while choosing your DTH service

 

While choosing your DTH service you need to make sure you can reap out maximum benefits out of the service. Every person has got a different set of requirements and needs and that is why each of our choices will be very different too.

Price of installation of new DTH connection:

The new DTH connection price of different DTH companies varies. While some companies offer cheaper installation rates others offer the free subscription for a few months.

There are many DTH brands which now offers free vouchers in addition to new dish installations. You can always choose the DTH brands that benefits you the most in your preferred way.

Recharge offers:

When you recharge for your package subscription through digital wallets or online through the DTH service provider’s website, you will always get some or other offers like cash back and discounts. When you recharge for packages for a longer duration at a time you get it for a reduced price or a few weeks of free subscription.

 

You need to compare which DTH company offers the best recharge plans. For example, Dish TV Recharge offers are not as great as Tata sky Recharge offers but Tatasky is way pricier than Dish TV.

So, one way or the other you have to compromise in certain cases.

The number of channels offered:

This is one of the most important factors to consider while getting a DTH service. You need to have the entire channel list of each of the DTH service provider before deciding on which one to subscribe to. Videocon D2H channel list is one of the longest among all while Sun Direct channel list isn’t, focusing mainly on South Indian channels.

 

 

Audio and video quality:

DTH service was developed primarily to improve the picture as well as the audio quality of the channels being aired. The quality varies from one company to the other. Till date, Airtel DTH service provides the best video quality when compared to others.

 

Based on the above criteria, you can decide which DTH company to go for. We have also listed down which DTT company is better in which front so that if you are installing a new DTH service, you can have a better idea about all of the available brands and their pros and cons.

 

What makes TataSky best DTH in India?

Before the merger of Dish TV and Videocon D2H, TataSky was the largest DTH service provider in India with a user base of 13.5 million. Even though it came after Dish TV, it quickly earned popularity among city dwellers. It is the first DTH service provider in India which showcased FIFA World Cup 2014 live in India.

It offers 281 channels and 25 HD channels and it has one of the best HD services in the country.

 

What makes Dish TV best DTH brand in India?

Dish TV is a legend. Because it is the first DTH brand in India. When people stuck to cable services, Dish TV introduced us to the world of satellite television in 2004. It has about 11 million subscribers and has over 400+ channels. It is also very cheap when compared to Tatasky and Airtel DTH Recharge plans.

 

Few other popular DTH brands…

Most certainly Videocon D2H is famous for its audio and video quality! It is also appreciated for its extensive customer care support.

While brands like Sun Direct are specifically preferred by South India dwellers, others like to prefer Tata Sky and Dish TV more. Jio DTH which was launched back in 2008 is also quite appealing.
