With the Tata sky plus feature, you will be able to watch the programmes at your convenience too. Nice addition by Tata Sky. My subscription of Dish TV is ending next month, will be switching to Sky plus.

The episode on the best rally cars was a stonker. Audi came in first and I never knew Audi was the first company to introduce Turbo-charged engine, first company with all-wheel drive and first company to introduce female rally drivers.
Simply awesome. This channel is a must see.

Thumbs up

Yay!!!! I just heard the news from a friend and now saw this thread and I have TATA sky.

All I need to know is if I have it or do I have to subscribe for it. If I have to subscribe then they'll be a lot of explaining to parents to do.

Parents are the worst nightmare's to any budding petrol head. But I think dealing with those challenges is what makes being a petrol head a worthy cause.

I just saw the channel on my Tv two days ago but unfortunately its not subscribed for. Am gonna subscribe for it and then record almost every programme on the Tata Sky+. Does anyone know if we can transfer what we have recorded on the Tata Sky+ to a disk, external drive?

Unfortunately we can't. All those features are blocked. Probably these are disabled due to copyright issues. Maybe in future these ports will be enabled or you can risk and hack it .

Make sure you go to Tata sky Plus settings and change the Disk Management Mode to Manual so that you don't up deleting your favorite programs when you run out of disk space.

Hope you have Tata sky? If yes go to channel #221. And yes you need to subscribe if your base pack doesnt have this channel. If you have the south pack then you need additional cosmo pack to view this channel.
