This looks good.

Can someone tell me if it is available on Airtel Digital TV DTH Service?
I was not able to find it.

I checked it with Airtel DTH Customer services. Unfortunately Airtel DTH doesnt have this channel in their listing

Just saw it yesterday and its an amazing development!!!
The problem is that I have 3 set top boxes in my home and only the one in the living room is Tata Sky +. Which means that if I want to record I have to go to the living room and set the recording there!!!

Anyways I am not complaining and was double minded whether I should renew the tatasky subscription which is expiring in Feb'10 or shift to Airtel's IPTV!!
I guess this developments settles in favor of Tata Sky!!!

Unhappy

I have a prehistoric set-top box called Hathway! I don't even get Neo Sports for Christ's sake! This is very sad!

India's first automotive channel and I'm missing all the action!

very nice channel indeed - watched it for a bit last night. interesting programme on VW.

glad that Discovery is doing this for chaps like us, who love automobiles!

Perhaps one day TBHP could create a TV Channel on Cars - possibly in partnership with one of the big media houses!

That would certainly be worth watching given the fund of knowledge that reposes with the members here!

Unfortunately, its still not there on Airtel IPTV!
Hopefully it will be added soon since it seems to be part of discovery banquet.

I heard about this as i was browsing the Team BHP web site yesterday. I was zapped to hear channel 221 is Discovery Turbo. After i got back home last night i switched on the TV and tuned to channel 221. And there it was!! I was up till 3am watching their shows. 5th gear is really interesting. They reviewed the BMW M6 and showcased some really pimped up outrageous rides. I think there was a hummer, an 840 BHP EVO and a really cool Citroen! I mean, wow! Finally now i have 24/7 channel which shows only motoring related stuff! Cant wait to get off work and go home to watch that channel! Thanks to you guys. If i had not browsed to that thread, i would have had to watch news last night!

I've been watching this channel for a couple a years here in Singapore. It does have a lot of nice shows on it indeed. My favs are Wheeler Dealer,Auto Trader, Top Gear & Fifth Gear., in that order.

But after you have watched the channel for a couple of months it gets rather repetitive. But its good fun anyway.

Thats a great find, went home and added the Cosmo Pack immediately and enjoyed the "Fifth Gear" show last evening. I was stunned to see the most expensive modified cars, one of them was Hummer H2 with 26" wheels, 45 speaker with some 20k watt ICE. ohh my god

OOh Man, what an amazing find. Just checked on the site, it comes with Cosmo Pack.

Till now didnt subscribe to it as it has ET Now and some other movie channels, which are sad. Now there is a reason to add this pack.

Adding it for one year and getting ready for a night out tonite once I reach home.

Thanks TBHP.
