Hathway to go fully digital from June increasing channels, order set-top box by SMS - vinay_kumar - 02-25-2012

Mumbai Hathway will sunset analog cable and go fully digital from June 30, 2012 increasing channels count considerably, by using the whole bandwidth from 47 MHz in VLF band to 860MHz in UHF band.
So there will be 105 carrier transponders (analog channel) freely available after abandoning analog transmission.
1 analog channel can carry upto 8 digital channels of very good quality

1 VHF carrier frequency reserved for Hathway Cable Internet.

Order set-top box by SMS STB (Name) (Area) to 575759

Hathway, InCablenet, SitiCable, Manthan etc are the names of MSOs (Multi-System Operators). The Local Cable Operators (LCOs) are franchisees of these MSOs and relay the signals received from MSO on analog tv bands+few analog blank ch carrying digital channels. Hathway does not control or set local cable channels (It is managed by LCO with modulators, de-modulators and amplifiers)

But for digital cable, the head-end (with EPG and DTH like channel numbers, software menu) is managed by MSOs and shared by LCOs affiliated to them.
So in metros LCOs will have to shut down analog services. But other places will continue to receive analog tv till they reach complete digitization phase.

Bangalore is in Phase 2 of Digitization, so your LCO will abandon during that time.

Actually your Local Cable Operator affiliated to Hathway will stop Analog transmission, thereby allowing more Digital channels to be carried and received by your Hathway set-top box.

*Analog cable is the normal TV channels that we receive without using the set-top box.
