Seems like you took the best decision, me too contemplating on dumping my Airtel, only reservation is my mother who uses it to watch regional channels.Tatasky HD (mega-giga-gaga pack) - Rs. 770/- pm
In our household it's primarily for Sports, English movies/entertainment/news, Kannada channels
Now with Tatasky-Sony lover's quarrel its become a pain
Netflix 4k/4screen - Rs. 800/- pm
Amazon Prime - Rs. 85/- pm (Rs. 999/- pa)
This combo rocks for movies and shows. Well worth the money.
4K on new LG OLED is stunning, HDR and Dolby Vision is an absolute delight
So now I have dropped TataSky and signed up for:
HotStar - Rs. 85/- pm (Rs. 999/- pa)
SonyLiv - Rs. 40/- pm (Rs. 499/- pa)
YuppTV - Free for now (some LG TV deal for 6 months)
Hotstar movies and shows are OK-HD quality (not great, not bad either)
Live sports is passable, not enjoyable
SonyLiv movies and shows are OK-HD quality (not great, not bad either)
Live sports is "shite"
YuppTV news is enough
Using Chromecast for HotStar, SonyLiv, YuppTV. Ad free shows, movies. Pause and watch later. Too many conveniences
Have given TataSky my piece of mind and told them why I am moving away. Let's see if they get their act together.
My argument is simple. When paying Rs. 175/- pm for HD access, charge me another 100-125 and give me only HD channels.
Why push SD crap as base pack (gazilion useless channels) and then add-on HD/Sports (pricey) as though it's God's gift from them.
Other option is move to Hathaway cable at Rs. 500/- pm; get a package similar or better than TataSky's mega-gaga package.
Have heard many complaints about the local operator; so still in limbo.
For the last few months, our TV watching has been mostly NetFlix/Prime and live sports.
Let's see if I can survive the ordeal.
Sports is priority for me next comes the movies etc.
