DTH Rain problems in TataSky/Airtel/Dish TV Solution

DTH services like Tata Sky , Airtel, BIG TV, Sun Direct, Dish TV and Videocon DTH offers high quality Video and audio than regular Cable TV.

But these DTH has it’s own disadvantages as well. These DTH have bigger problem during rainy seasons.  This is more apparent in TataSky and Dish TV which started earlier. Though all DTH has problems during rain, old TataSky /Dish Tv subscribers face the problem even during less rain. This is because earlier installation used smaller Dish.

The new DTH and even TataSky are now installing 25% bigger dish to the new customers.

If you face severe issues during Rain like “No Singal”, you need to request them to change to the bigger dish.

This will not 100% solve the problem. But, the channels will be available most of the time. Only during heavy rains it will display the “No Signal” message.
