After the Dish TV’s 30+ HD channels claim, it’s turn of Reliance BIG TV with 250 HD like quality channels. They have given the advertisement in all leading newspapers.
That too they claim 1080p & 10 times the existing image quality. I want to tell you, this complete nonsense claim. They have only very few HD channels(1080i) and most of them do not have 5.1 audio itself! They are not doing anything to improve the image quality or have HD source for all these channels. Teh interesting part is they are not even telling it is 1080i or 720p picture resolution. 1080p channels are not available in India . Not even in Tata Sky which is the best HD DTH available in India as of now. 1080p transmissions are resource hugry and I don’t expect them in India in next 5 years. Even in countries like US, there are very few full HD 1080p channels.
They are just doing a ad gimmick to get the attention. Period.
But they have added new HD channels like Star Plus HD, Star Movies HD and Start Sports HD today.
