I do not have a tata sky connection. It's a normal cable wala for me. I am missing this channel big time. I have searched through all the channels atleast 5 times since I have seen the promo. My cablewala shows Discovery, Animal Planet, Fox History, Travel and Living but he does't show Turbo.. Damn! :(
Thats bcos only Tata Sky airs DT.

I don't know why, but off late I am enjoying Chop Shop! I know its among the most annoying, but Leepu is simply hilarious, especially when he goes into that 'trance' and starts dancing to the car's design! Man alive!

Even "The Garage" is a good programme. It teaches you a lot about real world car problems and what you should or shouldn't do in such cases.

Redline-tv and turbocharged are great for performance oriented viewers.

Did you catch the episode aired today? Their car caught fire (all that hard work gone down the drain).

Note from Support : Please avoid typing with excessive dots........like.........this.............Thanks

Talked to Air-tel DTH customer care and asked about Discovery Turbo ... They said it will be available soon, but don't know when... ....

Guys, why don't all Team-BHP airtel DTH customers flood airtel CC with requests for DT channel ... may be they will provide it sooner ...

Thanks,
Srini...

I already had a big fight with them regarding this about a month ago, even threatend with a disconnection and shift to Tata Sky in case they do not provide it soon, they had promised then as well, lets see when does this comes on Airtel DTH. bring it fast Airtel.

OT: I have Tata Sky in Gurgaon but there nobody has interest in it,

Default profound obsevration on Campervan Crisis

occasionally catch campervan crisis on this channel.

This is what one of the mechanics on the show said "Its good that boys like Nigel have this hobby and passion - without it they would just cheat on their wives and girlfriends" -

profound, ehh? good to pass it on to your better halfs if they hate your hogging the TV time.

guys,

any one checked out "Turbo charged" episode yesterday! Hummer off-roading was amazing. Also those desert racers were mind boggling with lamps which can throw lights up to 1 mile

last evening's Wheeler Dealers - Yellow Landrover project was nice as was the previous one with the old Fiat 500 restoration with the Abarth 650cc engine bunged in.
Waiting for Part 2 of Yellow Landrover today - am sure it will be interesting.

really love watching Wheeler Dealers and Auto Trader.
Campervan crisis is also pretty good but personally I vastly prefer Mike Brewer and Edd China's presentation style. I tend to actually make the effort to catch their particular shows on a regular basis while I can easily give any of the other shows a miss.

Any news of Discovery Turbo on DISH TV, or as usual they are slow to adapt. Ironically i got another dish tv connection just a few days before the channel was launched by TATA SKY.
Missing this thing big time...

For the first time I am regretting buying Airtel DTH and not Tata Sky.
Hopefully it comes to other service providers soon enough, till then your Tata Skyers enjoy.

Cheers
