Update: Sun Direct vs Others
Advertisement
#1
This is a thread which I am forced to create as some people who are totally against SUN DIRECT are spraeding rumours in different forums, fb pages etc. Now why will people choose SUN DIRECT over other dths inspite of the fact that it has lesse no. of channels compared to other dths ? I have some vaild points to justify this. Please note, I am only comapring with ROI Packs, if any member does it with South packs he is mostly welcome. DD Direct Plus not taken into consideration as it is a Free DTH. First of all what is the minimum monthly package cost of other dths - RS 220 minimum. Agreed ? But SUN DIRECT'S minimum ROI monthly subscription is 190 p.m. In that RS 190 pack only Eight Bengali Channels are available: DD -Bangla / Star Jalsha / ABP Ananda / Zee Bangla / Aakash Bangla / ETV Bangla / Sangeet Bangla / Star Utsav Bangla. SUN DIRECT does not have any exclusive Bangla Channel but the Bengali Language feed of Star Utsav which SUN DIRECT provides is not available on DISH TV. Then, DD -Bangla is not available on full screen on AIRTEL DIGITAL TV. Now let us come to the sports channels. Every dth provides sports channels. But, what will be the monthly cost involved to get all the major sports channels in a dth ? Lets discuss one by one.

DISH TV - Neo Prime / Neo Sports / Ten Sports / Ten Action / Ten Cricket / Sony Six / Set Max (For IPL) / DD -Sports / DD -National (For India Matches) / India Cricket Pack - RS 280 p.m. - Super Gold Pack.
To get Star Sports, ESPN, Star Cricket all the three channels RS 599 p.m. - HD Royale Pack. (HD Box must in this case.)
Ten HD, Sony Six HD available on DISH TV.
ESPN HD, Star Cricket HD, Star Sports 2, Fox Sports News, Trace Sports not available on DISH TV. Ten Golf available on DISH TV. But it is too costly RS 200 p.m.

TATA SKY- Star Sports / Star Sports2 / ESPN / Star Cricket / Neo Prime / Neo Sports / Sony Six / DD -Sports / DD -National (For India Matches) / Set Max (For IPL) - RS 300 p.m. - Supreme Sports Kids Pack.
ESPN HD, Star Cricket HD available on TATA SKY.
TEN HD, Sony Six HD, Ten Golf, Fox Sports News, Trace Sports not available on TATA SKY.
Ten Sports, Ten Action, Ten Cricket not available on any pack. All these three channels monthly cost RS 85 p.m. which is too costly.


AIRTEL DIGITAL TV - Star Sports / Star Sports 2 / ESPN / Star Cricket / Ten Sports / Ten Action / Ten Cricket / Sony Six / Trace Sports / Set Max (For IPL) / DD -Sports / DD -National (For India Matches) - RS 300 p.m. - Economy Sports Plus Pack.
Fox Sports News, Ten Golf not available on AIRTEL.
ESPN HD, Star Cricket HD, Ten HD, Sony Six HD available on AIRTEL.
Neo Prime & Neo Sports available only on Magnum Pack @ RS 563 p.m.

Neo Alacarte with these two channels @ RS 45 p.m.

VIDEOCON D2H - Star Sports / ESPN / Star Cricket / Neo Prime / Neo Sports / Ten Sports / Ten Action / Sony Six / Fox Sports News / Set Max (For IPL), DD -Sports , DD -National (For India Matches) - RS 286 p.m. - New Gold Sports Pack.
Ten Cricket available only on New Platinum Pack @ RS 396 p.m. that too only when India matches are being played. For others, it is RS 34 p.m.
Ten Golf, Star Sports 2 , Trace Sports not available on VIDEOCON D2H.
ESPN HD, Star Cricket HD, Ten HD, Sony Six HD available on VIDEOCON.

RELIANCE DIGITAL TV - Star Sports / ESPN / Star Cricket / Ten Sports / Ten Action / Ten Cricket / Set Max (For IPL) / DD -Sports / DD -National (For India Matches) - RS 275 p.m. - Silver Sports Pack.
Sony Six available on Platinum Pack @ RS 402 p.m.
Neo Prime, Neo Sports available on Max Pack @ RS 499 p.m. Besides, its alacarte RS 45 p.m.
Star Sports 2, Ten Golf, Fox Sports News, Trace Sports, Sony Six HD not available on RELIANCE.
ESPN HD, Star Cricket HD, TEN HD available on RELIANCE.

Before I proceed, everyone must agree that Ten Golf, Trace Sports, Fox Sports News, Sony Six SD & HD does not have much live content to offer. So the availablity or non availability of these channels would not make much of a difference I suppose.

Now SUN DIRECT- Star Sports / Star Sports 2 / ESPN / Star Cricket / Ten Sports / Ten Action / Set Max (For IPL), DD -Sports , DD -National (For India Matches) - RS 199 p.m. only !!!! - Value Plus Pack.
Ten Cricket on Mega Sports Pack @ RS 280 p.m. only. Its alacarte price only RS 17.12 p.m. where as in AIRTEL RS 40 p.m., VIDEOCON RS 34 p.m., DISH TV, TATA SKY & RELIANCE RS 30 p.m.
Neo Prime only RS 22.25 p.m.
ESPN HD, Star Cricket HD available on SUN DIRECT.

Neo Sports, Trace Sports, Ten Golf, Fox Sports News, Sony Six SD, Sony Six HD, Ten HD not available on SUN DIRECT.

Finally, just look at SUN DIRECT'S VALUE PLUS PACK - RS 199 p.m. only.

SUN DIRECT ALL MAJOR CHANNELS ROI SD - RS 280 P.M.

TATA SKY - RS 410 P.M.
AIRTEL - RS 563 P.M.

Now guys you decide wisely. I shall always go for SUN DIRECT as it is cheap though several Bengali Channels are missing from their lineup.
It has taken a lot of pain to create this thread as I had to juggle between websites of dish, tata, airtel, dwh, reliance, sun continuosly.
Try and spread the message of happiness and peace everywhere:happy:

Ur thread is comparing only sports and english channels.....what about comparison between Hindi, marathi, bangla , Tamil channels etc.

Ur view is that which dth is providing sports and English channels on low base pack it best...

What about avaibility of Hindi Music, Marathi, Bangla, Tamil, Kids, HD Channels , there are many more to compare......

If Sun direct have TOTAL 197 SD Channels (not language feed) Dish TV Have more than 280 SD Channels

If Sundirect have 10 HD Channels Dish TV have 26 Tru HD channels

it means 15 millions of DishTV customers are fool because they not have Headlines Today

but many of Sun Direct ROI customers who have Exclusive South channels they are Experts

u r comparing only that channels which available in Sun Direct but Not in Other DTH

Now Customers are choosing only that DTH Which provide maximum channels

ur expert view is only want see sun direct's plus points

See mr.sam16 Sun Direct Expert others dth also have Exclusive Channels compare to Sun Direct

once a time change ur view
ur all time view is ' Price Tag'

In Year 2012 , 88% Customers addition by 4 DTH players Dish TV, TATA SKY, Airtel Digital TV and Videocon d2h

12% for Sun and Reliance

88% customers are fool because they not purchased SUN DIRECT, they not have Expert knowledge like Sun Direct Experts
