I know u r not working for any DTH services but have contacts / good relations with all DTH.
For me DTH craze started after joining forums that too recently . I have started my C Band tracking in 1989 at the age of 34 years
. slowly added few LNB s to my 12'Dish . once i have connected LNBs from 57 °E[i think Sun channels in that Orbit sat , cant remember the sat name ] to 105.5 in 1 Dish, another 8' star track stamped metal dish for ATN channel i think it was @115 some thing in that region, Later added the DTH like service from Star named as "SDS" - Star Digital Service . it was priced nearly Rs 30,000 /- as i remember but may be more than this amount.That service was offering all Star channels perhaps 10-15 at that time for Rs 9500/- Per year . after 1 year discontinued of their offered package price . still i have the STB.
