Makes me wonder how many Tamil and Telugu HD movies we have and what is their source.
this sounds like a poor value proposition, but it's great news, because at least it's a beginning for the market, now once the other players get on the bandwagon, we can probably see some price rationalisation.....i wouldn't want to be an early adopter for this, especially since i don't watch tamil or telugu, but i think this is a good sign that by end-2009 we'd have a decent set of options for HD DTH services.
I don't mind paying 10k as an initial cost, but 100 bucks per channel is rubbish. I am okay paying maybe 100 bucks per month total over and above what i pay for my normal package, and this is if i get ar least 4-5 channels that i WANT to watch in HD, like sports channels or movie channels. Let's hope this kind of pricing situation comes about.
Is HD broadcast necessary?
ie.If manufactures add upscaling technology in settop as DVD players,price can go marginally High ,but we can have good PQ on LCD.
Budget upscaling DVDp starts from 3.5,so settop can also be made available in same price level.
