Airtel Digital TV Offers DTH Satellite TV in India

Bharti Airtel Limited has launched Airtel digital TV, its Direct To Home (DTH) Satellite TV service that promises to redefine the digital home entertainment experience in 62 cities across India starting October 9, 2008.

Saif and Kareena Promote Airtel TVAirtel digital TV uses the latest MPEG4 standard with DVB S2 technology for exceptional picture clarity and high quality audio, and High Definition ready interactive content. They also claim a 20% larger dish antenna ensures better performance during rain. In addition Airtel digital TV introduces some great new features that will encourage DTH users of other services to switch.

  • Universal remote – that works for both Set Top Box and TV
  • Highest Set Top Box memory – meaning more interactive applications
  • World space Radio – integrated satellite radio for music fans
  • Interactive applications – iMatinee (Book cinema tickets), Travel (book travel packages), iShop (Shop on TV), iCity (Get city information)
  • High quality games – refreshed every 6 weeks
  • Audio gain control – ensures uniform audio levels across all channels
  • On screen account meter – keep track of monthly expenses
  • Last viewed channel – restored after power disruption/switch off
  • Low battery indicator – Time to recharge.

This will surely challenge the big Indian DTH players already in the market like Dish TV, Tata Sky and Big TV. I personally subscribe to Tata Sky, but some of the Airtel Digital TV features are really tempting.

    This is toatl breach of Contarct as I was Informed that after paying 2000.00 I wil get set tip box and Subscription for Six month free than why is this hapenning.pls reply

    Hi Syed M Saif

    Please call customer care no 18001028080 (Toll Free)
    I think you must not have been activated your account using activation voucher of Rs.2000 (which you must have got with the set top box) Just scrach the card & activate your account.
    your basic package will be activated for 6 months and then Airtel will activate the Hindi plus package for 6 Months
    After 6 months you would have the option to choose the package (Either to pay 99 for basic package or topay 149 for basic & hindi plus package)
    I hope this would solve your problem

    Dear Sir, I have purchased Airtel DTH @Rs.2000/- one year free subscription. I have purchased only for seeing good quality picture and Animal Planet. When i purchased this DTH from the shop, they told me that we can add the above said channels by paying topup’s. After getting installation i have contacted the concern person, they simply telling that there is no topup available on this package. If they tell earlier, i would have purchased some other DTH. Also some waves has taken place which is also made complain to the concern, no action was taken on this. It is very bad situation. So Airtel higher official could look in to this matter and do the needful

    I just now came across this very cool site which compares different packages being offered by almost every DTH service provider. It has grouped all the channels into appropriate categories and clearly indicates which channel is available under which DTH package with its monthly subscription charges in a very easily comprehensible matrix form.
    Apart from the comparison feature the site offers another very useful feature in which the user just fills the details regarding his viewing interests and the budget according to which he gets an appropriate response from someone at tulna.
    This site saved me so much time in choosing the right package for myself that fit my budget and offered channels of my interest.
    Would really appreciate it if people who have used this website could share their experiences here.
