I have Tata Sky
and I'm extremely happy with it , but for the fact that there are only a couple of music channels.
For a music freak like me , its bad

Planning to wait for response on Airtel and will then decide whether to retain or change.

Not a selling point for me for two reasons:
1. I already have a WS receiver
2. Why would I want to listen to radio through my TV's tiny speakers?

Point 2, I agree.

Point 1 was for Abhinav. Its a decent value add for people who do not have WS receiver (that includes me).

World Space Radio is good for the music freaks who dont have that

I just wish they price the monthly things properly

I guess I agree with you there. It will matter to those who dont have WS and also to those who have a home theater or audio system attached to their TV - now that one thinks about it!

Abhinav, even if you like the offer don't jump the gun. Wait for a special offer that will come to you via your airtel mobile or landline in your next bill. Buy through that since you will enjoy additional benefits.

Lol.
Ishan sir as always , opening secrets.

I did not understand one thing on it.
4499 for 9 months with the Dish and the Set top box or just for the dish and the set top box.
If its for the Dish + Set Top + 9 months of viewing , i'm really game for it.

But isn't that way too costly when compared to the Big TV offer?

By the way Anuj, your case could be a one-off case imo. Yesterday I was looking at the set-top box pack that comes with Big TV. Its manufactured by Hyundai Electronics of S.Korea. Thats about as big as it gets I guess. For others its mostly Taiwanese bulk manufactured boxes if I am not mistaken.

I think that's what it means Abhinav. But the best person to clarify that would be Eddy!
