    I received a letter from Dish Network about the increase in price on the Tamil Mega pack from 24.99 to 29.99. The letter also says "Two more top quality Tamil channels are expected to be launched very soon". Any idea what those channels are?

    Great news - would love to see STAR Vijay! Since the price increase has already occured from Feb 1 from 24.99 to 29.99, I presume these channels will be launching soon?

    It has been a while since I received the letter about the price increase but no info on what channels it will be.. I think it could be sun music or sun news channel..

    Is it true that I cannot have the Jaya pack by itself?? I'm currently subscribed to Tamil mega pack and Customer service guy told me that I cannot have Jaya pack by itself and that I have to signup for Tamil mega pack to get Jaya pack.. total BS in my opinion..

    Well dish network site shows tamil mega pack at 29.99 and jaya pack at 9.99.. i asked the CSR to remove tamil mega pack and just put Jaya pack for me and he says that he can't do it and I need to subscribe to the complete tamil mega pack to get Jaya pack.. Then why is it even offered as a separate pack??

    Is it a seperate package? Or is it an addon package?

    Looks like it would be an add-on pack to an AT package for the $10 price point.
