    UTM Movies will launch next week on Sky Digital in UK. They have began testing. I know they showed interest in launching in North America. Will be interesting if we get anything in following weeks.

    UTV movies and UTV movies International are different channels I believe. I am more interested in UTV Stars that has recently launched in India.

    I got a letter in mail from DirecTV that soon they will stop carrying the 3 NDTV channels and are reducing the price accordingly....

    I think it is useless to keep it since NDTV was the reason I have been with them for so many years....

    Comments....

    When I moved recently, I decided to drop DirecTV and stick with Dish, since NDTV was the only unique channel I ever watched on DirecTV. Looks like I didn't make the wrong decision. :lol:

    If the past is any indication, these 3 NDTV channels will move to DISH pretty soon.

    I also disconnected directv last year for the same reason. I dont think directv is appealing for south asian subscribers.

    New Uplinks / Mappings - Channels NOT Available
    579 NDTV Inter+ (Russian/Ukranian) added to 118° TP 18 (SD *TEST* Hidden)
    580 NDTVG Info Channel added to 118° TP 18 (SD *TEST* Hidden)

    Guess they will become available the next day after leaving Directv - 1/26.

    Dish rocks for South Asian Viewers!!!!

    Moderators - Can this thread be moved to Dish Network please?

    Directv has very limited south asian channels.

    ndtv profit not coming to dishnetwork as zee business is already there, we know its good channel for business news but dishnetwork now has transponders almost full for internationals 118.7 , so they be careful for selecting new channels. and price will be the same for hindi mega pack for now, confirmed finally.

    @jaguar: They could drop Zee Smile. That is one of the stupidest channel in the mega pack. Worthless. Instead they could add NDTV Profit. I hope adding channels doesn't stop. There is always a possibility that they use different transponder on 118.7 for internationals, right?

    yes price will remain same for english news. true, we want dishnetwork to choose right channels for us. like zee smile no one really wants channels like that but its all up to southasian programming management and depends on channel owner and how they sign contract for distribute channels. ndtv profit should be in hindi mega pack and they can remove zee smile or just keep but we need ndtv profit. adding one more channel can not make much difference for them but it can make customers very happy. hope they add it soon. as for transponder all satellite can have limited transponders. 118.7 has 33 and most of them are full with channels, but still some spots are there for new channels. they can not add extra transponder as 33 is technically max for now for 118.7.
