Hathway goes HD in Bangalore??


This morning the Hathway collections guy spilled the news that Hathway will start offering HD content from June at the current price point of SD. He offered to bring a set top box for Demo. They're also coming up with an exchange scheme to replace the old SD box. I checked their website but there's nothing to this effect...
I'll keep everyone posted if the demo happens!
Cheers
Navin

Re: Hathway goes HD in Bangalore??

I live i Mumbai and use a SCOD 18 set top box..
from the mast month onwards i have seen two channels namet HD test1 and HD test 2..
the set top box i have doesnt support HD
and i get a msg saying "The content on this channel is blocked.."

i did ask my cable operator...the local guy about this and he said he had no idea...
Fingers crossed..

Re: Hathway goes HD in Bangalore??

I heard this from my cable guy 4-5 months back. He was speculating the set top box price at INR 6000/- and I laughed on it. So far they are on track on delivering in June, which is good news.

Will cable support N number of HD channels in future, or do we need to upgrade to OFC?

Re: Hathway goes HD in Bangalore??

I called one of the HathWay numbers in Bangalore and the person to whom I spoke to told me that HD will be coming by end of June. They don't have HD boxes now. This box will cost approx. Rs3000 and he said it has built in recording facility too. He didn't know much details. Fingers are crossed

Re: Hathway goes HD in Bangalore??

Sure folks... As soon as he demoes it I will get back to everyone on this forum. I'm not too sure if I want to rewire back to Hathway given that I just moved to airtel for the HD channels. But the second connection in the house is still Hathway so I'll probably just hook the new HD set top box to this second connection.
Lets see how the demo goes. Looking forward to the weekend...

hehe, I don't think you would need an OFC or for that matter it can not be a feasible solution even if you need it...
