Depends on your local cable provider. All the ones I used like the local guy, SITI Cable, Hathway, etc. never compared to Tata Sky in terms of PQ and customer service. Apart from Tata Sky I've also used/use Dish and Videocon and they too are better than local cable TV in terms of PQ, though Dish is pretty bad in terms of customer support.

So, I guess it is better to try out the Cable HD first and then jump over to DTH HD, if required. Decisions, Decisions.

Get the cable HD if it is cheaper & offers more values for channels.
Why you want to wait for jump ? Don't anticipate the day & night PQ difference between both:cool:..

Technically, Cable-HD is capable of more bandwith than Satellite-HD. But then, 99% of the local cable company guys are hardly bothered about providing quality service.

I am from Kolkata (Beliaghata area) and wanted to choose HD services between SITI cable & Tata Sky...I have used Tata Sky HD earlier, but not SITI....

Can someone tell me How many HD channels SITI provide? What is the Set top box price and the monthly price? How is the quality of SITI HD service

Request your advice...

Thanks
Sunil
