Tata Sky vs. Videocon D2H


Hi,

I'm switching to HD soon and I'd like to know what advantages Videocon provides over Tata Sky and vice versa. I'm currently using Tata Sky SD and am reasonably satisfied with their service and equipment. How would Videocon compare on this front?

Re: Tata Sky vs. Videocon D2H

Videocon D2H will provide 10 more HD channels over TataSky (21 vs. 11). Videocon D2H is somewhat cheaper also. The DTH PQ is at par with the best. No idea on customer support.

What about audio on HD channels. Is it 5.1 or 2.0?

VideoconD2H has started 5.1 Dolby Audio on most of the HD channels which are originally broadcast in 5.1 sound.
few channels like Zee TV HD, Zee Cinema HD, Ten HD, MAX HD, ESPN HD, Star Cricket HD don't provide 5.1 sound, only Stereo sound. So don't expect 5.1 on these channels. If you see 5.1 sound on any of these channels, then it's not right. i.e. DTH provider has upconverted stereo sound to 5.1 which will sound worse than original stereo broadcast.

Would you really care for 5.1 sound on soap operas? Only movies matter. Plus one needs a proper HT setup to enjoy 5.1 sound.

Technobhatt has answered your querry correctly.

I recently made a switch to Videocon HD from Reliance Big Tv and totally satisfied by it. If you own a full HD TV then it is best to go for a provider which has maximum no. of HD channels. And Videocon has an edge here.
And believe me once you start watching HD channels, you woulndt want to watch any SD channel .

Also Videcon has priced their HD channel package cheaper when compared to Tata sky HD. So it's a true VFM at the moment in market.

Moreover technobhatt has correctly answered query on sound.

If you are Audio/Video quality conscious, then go for Tata Sky (costly) otherwise Videocon is best for now.

I had a demo of Videocon D2H at a friend's place. I didn't find it any inferior. Only thing (based on various forum posts) is that 5.1 sound is not via HDMI but by optical/coaxial only. That is not a drawback in a big manner.

Re: Tata Sky vs. Videocon D2H

would never go for DISH HD. Considering, I have owned the SD for over 3 years and had really bad customer support.
The D2H wins my vote for being the most economical package alone with pretty good PQ. The HD Channels are sufficient for every type of user and the recent update brings video recording in Non-DVR STB.

Some genuine problems I have seen with the Airtel HD DTH :
The Package is quite expensive. By quite expensive, it is not worth the money paid. The quality is not that great.
Crappy Airtel Customer Care Support. Their new services are often stagnated with bad support services.
Problem in updates. Airtel did eventually launch the IPTV as the next big thing. But, now they discontinued it due to bad policing and lack of updated support(HD-Support).
They Promise too much, but give too less.

I haven't much used the TS so I do not comment about it. However, one of my friends owns it, and regrets after seeing the D2H.
