    Is there any free preview going on for select hindi channels?

    I'm getting MTVH, Zing, Set Max, Zee cinema and B4U music.

    Big Magic, another useless channel added to the lineup. Low quality programs.

    Agree with useless programs. Big Magic and Smile are both meaningless channels and wastage of slots.

    Any word on Hindi HD Channels? We have ZEE HD, thought ZEE CINEMA at least will go HD soon, but have not heard about it. Anyone here know any other channel going HD soon or anytime in 2013?

    Looks like Sony music channel (Sony Mix) will be launching soon. If you go on Sony Mix Wikipedia and Dish Network Masti Package under South Asian, it is listed under channel 726.

    So, I called up Dish to set up service for only south asian programming since we do not want any american channels. They said that we will have to take one of their packages with american channels and then add south asian programming which is an option I do not want to spend on.

    So, they asked us to look into dish world iptv which is like a set top box just for Indian channels. Does anyone have it? How is the picture quality and are the channels offered same as dish service? Any replies will be appreciated. thanks.

    You have to subscribe to their Basic package which is 10 dollars a month. It is an american basic add on package for international channels.

    Yes but if the picture quality and channels etc are same in satellite vs set top box, why should i spend $10 extra per month on satellite option? Does the set top box (dish world iptv) have any negatives vs the satellite option like interruptions, no service or any other negatives?

    Los...
    Assuming I'm reading this correctly, isn't this for Dish Network and therefore should be on their side of the forum?
