Default Has anyone tried Direct to Car (DTC) using DTH receivers ?

Friends,

I had a question regarding receving DTH reception in a car
has anyone tried this ?

i know of following challenges

1. Installing an DTH antenna or finding an alternative to the DTH antenna

2. DTH is a reception where the receiving antenna is stationay, where as when receiving it in a car, then antenna would be moving. Does this need DVB-H technology or DVB-S would do ?

If this is workable I see this as a good option for Bus / Truck as well as Cars with good rear seat entertainment systems.

any ideas ?

I think Dish TV provides something for Direct to Car, but couldn't find on their web site now.

2. Does not come with LCD Screen
3. Expensive (RS 79K or RS 1.5K)

Well, it seems to be like a difficult job mainly because of the weight of the dish.

IPTV would be more possible and easy, as it might be available through the wireless high speed internet in future.

The IPTV is already available from BSNL. With their 3G network, it is a very good alternative to the Direct to Car solutions and economical as well. You only need a cell phone capable of providing the output to the Car Audio systems. Models like Nokia N82, Nokia 5800 comes with a AV cable. So should not be an issue connecting them to the Car Audio System.

I know this, but the content would be a problem. BSNL will not do the content aggregation (??), if it gives same old free to air DD channels, then it would not be attractive unless the pricing is predatory

I beg to differ. BSNL has tie up with MyWay IPTV Services India and Digital IPTV. It offers almost 110 channels. The channel list differs according to your region. Managed to get a list of channels offered in Calcutta.
