    FOR ME TATA SKY IS BETTER THAN DISH TV
    dish tv is bit old now and tata sky's clarity is better than dish tv......
    well as for monthly charges go ,if u want it for a single connection...tata sky's monthly chargwe is rs.300 but tata sky lets u connect 3 more connections from the same dish for rs.100 monthly per connection(u will also need seperate box per extra connection + installation charges per extra connection will be halfed).
    well i am having a adjustment with my neighbours........
    four of our families have to pay a total of rs.600 per month.
    that means u will have to pay 150rs per month provided ur other friends agree to adjust with you.
    go with the quality:p

    TATA sky gets more votes and also their marketing is better as we have seen more ads of them.. i have seen both of them and both the quality is same ...

    there are some price diff though like the Movie on call is costly in Tata

    i think TATA has an option wherein you can connect 2-3 other TVs to the same set-top box for nominal extra cost. but that is convenient if you have 1-2 TVs in your same house.
    i wonder whether you have to goto your neighbour's house to change the channel as you can change the channel frm the set-top box only. (i m not sure though.)

    Saw a leaflet of TataSky, the other day, and it boasted of telecasting all the channels mentioned above.

    No if one family watches MTV then all the others will not be forced to watch the same. this is because the Signal Decoding occurs in the STB, connected directly to one TV. In case of multi-user config, each user will be provided with a seperate STB and they will only share the signal coming from the parabolic dish antennae, thats all. And yes, the channel selection and surfing occurs from the STB and not through the TV itself. Thus you will be able to watch over 250 channels even if your TV may support only a couple. About the DVD picture quality, DVD quality means a scanning resolution of over 720X540 pixels for a 16:9 ratio. As any electronics grad will know, our TV screen supports only 625 (mathematical, actual it is 525 or less) lines of horizontal scanning resolution and distinctively a surround sound track. So you are not watching a DVD quality movie. Maybe what they try to mean is that as the signal is processed in the digital domain, there is much less noise and interference and as a result, lint free pics are produced. And as you are a student, preferably you live in a hostel or a dorm. In that case you will be leaving after a couple of yrs. So the equipments like STB and the dish antannae will be useless. Wait for a few more days for any better offer.
