Hello,

I am a new member and I would kindly like all your expertise here. I currently have comcast triple play, and I am happy with it except that, comcast does not offer and Indian channels.

The only solution to this is getting satellite TV. Now I ive in an apartment and they don't allow to install the dish outside the apartments, I want to know if I put the DISH inside the house, will that work?

Also, which is better in terms of price and channel line ups, DISH or Direct TV. I am interested in watching movies,news,cricket, serials etc.

I would really apprecite if you could help out a NEWBIE here.

Thanks

Good for Dish Network viewers. I wish Directv can add a punjabi channel.

I started reading the thread and did not even realize it started in September ...of 2006!

NDTVIMAGINE is the channel some of us are waiting for. Hope DTV will air it. Their NDTV24x7 is an amazing news channel. This entertainment channel will be a cherry on the cake. You tube has amazing videos on that.

NDTV Imagine will air on Directv due to exclusive contract between directv and ndtv. My guess is NDTV imagine will air in March on Directv. Another guess is that Directv will charge extra for this channel.

I agree with you completely. NDTV is planning to launch three channels which includes a movie channel.

I guess KBC-3 will start in summer.

We should try calling DTV international services to find if they have any plans for carrying NDTV Imagine in the future.

Thanks

This is the email for the Distribution for NDTVIMAGINE. Try emailing and lets see the response. I emailed and they replied right away and last week they said they are closing the deal with DTV. I guess the more emails they get the more encouraged they are. This is the email address.

My experience with calling DTV regarding any new channel has always been very dissapointing. They hardly give any correct info. When MTVI launched I was not aware and when I called DTV they said they had no idea, while the channel had launched a week ago.
Best is to write to NDTVIMAGINE for any info.

I agree with Nina about directv csr's. They dont have a clue wrt new international channels. We need to contact the channel groups directly.

I emailed them last night and no reply so far. will update if they do.
