Dish TV HD Channels: 30 High Definition Channels claim true or not!

Dish TV TruHD claims to have added 30 channels. But the truth is they have only 3 channels in HD quality 1080i with 16:9 apspect ratio:

1) Nat Geo HD
2) Discovery HD

3) Movies Now HD

 

The ESPN HD  and Star Cricket HD are also real High definition channels. But they are available only for some events like ICC World cup.

The remaining 27 channels are just upscaled ones. You won’t find any difference in quality( may be they are slightly better than Dish TV SD channels due to higher bit rate) . If you compare them to Tata Sky SD channels, they will have same quality. So don’t get fooled by the 30 HD channels news.

    when in indian DTH industry all true hd channels will be shared between DTH operators so that the viewer need not keep shuffling between various dth operators.

    I bought dish tru hd today keeping in mind about its sohpisticated ads and which showcase their potential of airing 30 hd channels and i thought that it is better than tata sky+ hd. It is now after buying dish that i came to know that not only is the quality so much worse than tata sky but the rates are higher too! tata sky+ hd is better than dish anyday.

    I would like to disagree. Last week, I visited Chroma store in Indrapuram, Ghaziabad & got the executive to display ‘Zee Cinema’ on both DishTV HD & TataSky side by side.
    There was a noticeable sharpness on DishTV HD as compared to blurriness on TataSky. This was on Samsung 32 inch TV’s hung on the wall side by side.
    So definitely, the up-scaling done by DishTV HD is a lot better than TataSky. It may not be truly HD, but is definitely better than SD.
