  • NILESH JOSHI

    airtel must start some hindi hd chanals
    otherwise they lose their customers to tata sky or dish tv .they are providing more hd chanals

    • Bumchulu

      u r right Nilesh, Airtel is a B/s provider & they are fooling people by their ads, if within two months they did’nt started more HD channels, they are going to loose many customers, even i know a few of them

  • Kaleeswaran

  • Rakesh

    Airtel Really sucks big time with its HD. As of now Airtel is giving only 1 HD channel (NGC) + ESPN HD. Dish TV is giving 30 HD channels.

    I dont know y the hell Airtel has only one channel.

    Guys if u are planning to get new HD STB, keep Airtel as your last resort.

    • Rghu

      are you nuts……i have a 52 inch full hd lcd tv and aitel hd connection…….you know what all the three full time hd channels are available ie.ngc hd(ch no. 339), discovery hd world(ch no. 338), and movies now hd(after Z studio)……….and yeah dish TV givin 30 hd channels is shit……the commercial is to make a fool of you people in fact there are just 3 full time hd channels in India……….all the rest 27 channels are just upscaled…..in fact you wont find any difference in those channels when viewed in airtel ……….morover tata sky stll dont have movies now hd…………..

    • http://www.krishnamoorthy.in krishnamoorthy

      If you have 40inch TV you need to go for HD DTH to get the best picture clarity. Also keep in mind that most of teh channels are in SD. SD chanels quality is good in TataSky/Airtel.

      If you are not interested in regional channels TataSky is the best
