Even I am waiting for Reliance Jio DTH. The subscription costs of Tata Sky are way too high. We can hope that Jio brings the same disruptive business model to the DTH arena as it did in the the mobile business.
I usually renew my subscription for a year, but this time have renewed for 6 months.

There were some rumors floating around a few months ago but all that seems to have dried up.

Those rumors must have an element of truth because for the first time in the past 12-15 years of Zee Dish I got an offer of almost 33% extra on short term recharges. Pay for three months and get four months. Something must be delaying Reliance because the offer has reduced with Zee DTH now.

Help required to source Videocon D2H DVR remote which has a record button on top. My remote died about 4 months ago and the customer care and local service centre has not been able to give a replacement. I have got nothing but assurances and nothing else. I tried browsing on E-commerce sites but i could not see any thing matching my remote. It looks like this with a red button top for recording.

Most small electronic (multipurpose) shops - like the ones on SP Road in Bengaluru - can get you this. If you aren't comfortable purchasing from these places, then you can always request GIRIYAS to source one for you. I remember getting a similar remote for a friend a long while back.

Videocon should be able to replace this, check with them again? Last time i remember replacing remote for Rs 250 from Videocon D2H customer care service.

Looks like Reliance Digital license is expiring in Nov '17 and users are going to get a free Tata SKy connection.

Seems like TataSky is putting in some effort to make their app better. Got a call last week from them asking to meet me regarding the app, I obliged and three ladies came yesterday to discuss about the app.
They asked questions about the app, my usage, about the channels I watch, ways to improve it etc. The app was recently updated and is allot better than the older version, although finding channels and the layout is a bit confusing at times.
I gave them my views and suggestions and they left. Apparently in about a months time they will release another update which will see a major overhaul and they will introduce web streaming as well.

Recently saw a videocon dth connection in one of the restaurants.. Seemed to be of better clarity than tata sky. Can anyone confirm if the picture quality of videocon is better than Tata sky? And how's their customer service nowadays?

I have Reliance Big TV, and worked flawlessly since more than 5+ years. BIG TV license expires on 18-11-2017 as per the message I have received.

However, I am now confused between Tata Sky and Videocon DTH.

Not sure which one has better quality, but I am mostly getting skewed towards Tata Sky as due to its wider success.
