AXN HD launch on 6 April 2015

AXN HD is launching in India on 6 April 2015

Dish tv hd users get ready 😀

It was on 6 May 2014 that Multi Screen Media (MSM) received two licences from the Information and Broadcasting Ministry (I&B). The aim was to increase its high definition (HD) offering to its viewers. The licences obtained were for AXN HD and SET HD.

Amidst the cricketing extravaganza, the network today announced the launch of AXN HD which will go live on 6 April 2015.

Talking about the launch Sony Pix and AXN EVP and business head Saurabh Yagnik says, “We have introduced a whole new strong line up of shows that will be available on both our SD as well as HD feed. While the scheduling for the two channels will be the same, we might tweak the shows for our HD audiences.

    Upscale is waste of bandwidth. They already were doing that but now then are having more Asli HD.

    but it’s advantageous to customers to view Zee Cafe HD etc or Star World premiere in SD.

    It is Premiere channel so not in SD may be.

    but if dishtv can upscale zee cafe into HD, then why not downscale?
    I think, they should upscale all SD channels in HD & HD channels in SD too.

  5. It is Premiere channel so not in SD may be.

    HD channels can he down converted to SD when up linking by DTH operators. Like Epic. Also it is possible to down convert in the decoders which are given to cable operators. So there is no reason to continue with SD transmission. They are simply cheating people with two feeds of the same channel and looting.

    then why Dishtv or any DTH not downscaled Star world premiere HD into SD for all subscribers?

    Dayag bro what i want is packages from DTH/MSO where they offer only HD channels whose SD counterpart is avilable to HD customers so that we pay less but i know i am wrong bcoz if this happens then we will pay more as currently HD channels prices are subsidized bcoz broadcasters earn something from SD and some from HD so it gets balanced. This is the reason why one gets so many HD channels by just paying HD Access Fees

    I really dont like HDAF. for me it’s horrible method to loot us. I always hate those restrictions/mandatory for HD users like Dish TV had it earlier .

    i really like any HD format if they telecast differant programs than SD at the same time. if both are having same contents all time then no need of them. yes may be more sharper pictures and more good sound but for me it’s not a valuable channel.
    Although i am not watching AXN but many want them. so let it go ahead.

    agree bro.
    but, we common people can’t afford HD until they reduce prices.

    UHD is just a bubble, neither DTH ops can afford carrying UHD channels as it requires lo of bandwidth and there is a shortage o it now running a UHD channels is profitable for any broadcaster. NOT EVEN .00000000001 % people have UHD TV and those with UHD STB are even less .

    AXN HD is a good launch and Sony has all reasons to be proud. UHD will gain traction only after 2 or more years that too with handful premium channels

    uhd is just for rich & high lifestyle peoples.
    we (80% common people) have very less money so we can’t afford that.

  14. 😀 😀 But they will not watch their favorite channel in HD because it is costly for them and will wait infinitely to see it in SD.

    UHD is available in the market so present HOT Topic is UHD/4K and not HD.
