Poor Standard of Quality

Points that i have noticed where airtel digital tv services have gone from good to worse

1 – Inconsistent Audio Levels
2 – Different logo size across SD & HD channels, specially not being transparent & being present on different positions on the screen acrosa chs is the most irritating thing.
3 – High Pixelation & Blurriness on many channels.
4 – High Package prices and in return quality of picture/audio is poor so this inflated price is totally unjustified.
5 – Audio Peak settings not adjusted properly on many multilingual chs particularly cartoon ones thus giving poor audio.
6 – Lack of important HD chs.
7 – No major offers or retention offers.
8 – Complaints being closed without resolving issues.

Overall i am dissatisfied with their services, will use it till Feb end and then will not recharge

    I am more happy watching more channels with so much more content from various genres than the hardly 50-70 viewable chs (max limit out of 104 slots) analog cable gave.

    Digitization isa good thing, cable ops used to not give broadcasters their share of money and now they will be forced to.

    [i]Prices will rationalize soon[/i]. It takes time to build policies, the new guideline of TRAI which comes into effect from April 1 will make price afforfabl

    do not forget……the past generation grew up with dd national only. 
    and also concept of digitization or digitization took place more than 10 years ago.

    means digitization have already crossed 10 + years. still the prices are not rationalize.

    i m a rational customer like others but still i think we are being looted.
    e.g. 204 rs. for just 28 hd channels or 500-600 rs. for all sd channels.  :@

    10 years ago there were just 2 DTH ops, there was no strict implementation of digitization. Broascasters hardly showed interest in new chs or content. Landscape has changed drastically in last 4 years for the better. Competition and more chs have lead to change in policies. Wait n Watch prices will get affordable, there can’t be an upward trend forever. All parties involved know that people r price sensitive but then marginal increase with more pay chs being launched is alright.

    Just wait till April 1, u would see the first step

    There are many reasons for price increase. Inflation is another reason. But I agree they cannot keep increasing the rates and it has to stop some where. Just like construction bubble these DTH rates will also burst some time. But when will burst is the question.

    and do not forget …. more and more hd channels means more n more prices.
    and one day it will reach to beyond our limits.

    currently i m paying more than 1000 rs. per month for my three connections which is way above than my limit.  🙁

    It is bound to happen. Choose ur package wisely and DTH ops too need to come out with more flexible psckages.

    Tata Sky will add more chs as soon as they resolve signal issues if customers
    [/quote]

    they won’t come with more flexible packages.

    concept of digitization is itself indeed a true concept (and a perfect example) of looting customers. i think it is a kind of scam.  😆

  9. see airtel is looting in every field.

    in my area only 2 service providers are present – bsnl and airtel. 

    so airtel is looting and hence this is a classic example of[i] monopoly[/i].  😆

    we did read it in our school days – monopoly etc. but in real life also there is a clear cut monopoly.

    in india we have CCI but its of no use in my opinion.  :@

    No bro, sorry i won’t be able to do that. That’s too much hectic work.

    All in all, quality of airtel digital tv has deteriorated. Let’s see what future beholds, Tata Sky will add more chs and it’s the best bet right now

    i think d2h also. pq has been improved a lot in recent times. 🙂
    they will also add hd channels as of now.
    [/quote]

    True. But still Tata Sky is the best option considering the present and future. Many more surprises in store by tata sky
    [/quote]

    but bro…. some people say they have 24 tps and some say they have 12 tps only. so i m little bit confused.
    but one thing is that only few hd channels are left only to be launched like mtv hd, sony sab hd, 1 or 2 more hindi movies hd channels. except these i think no. of hd channels are good enough at present. 

    for roi people only 5-6 hd channels are remaining.

    Zee TV, Zee Cinema, Zee Studio, Zee News, Zee Business, Ten Sports, Ten Action, Sony Mix & most other Zee chs barring a few have blurry picture. Even many other chs have blurry picture and on many channels like Sony ESPN, &TV, Peace of Mind , Regional DD chs, Movies OK, Lok Sabha TV, RSTV, etc. there is too much pixelation
    [/quote]

    bro…. i m also using 42 inches led tv

    but let me clear you on all the channels which u have just mentioned whether i m getting pixels or not :

    zee tv, zee news, zee business – no pixellations et al. pq is superb bro.
    zee cinema, zee studio, zee cafe – yes pixellation issues. a lot of and a heavy pixellations can be seen.

    infact on most of the english GECs n english movies channels, pq is extremely bad.
    colors infinity is very good and also hbo and star movies in terms of picture quality. except these three channels all are in bad pq.

    ten sports and ten action are in ok ok quality. movies ok is also ok. sony max is best among hindi movie channels.

    &TV is worst among all hindi GECs. no doubt in that. all dd channels including rajya n lok sabha are also ok ok. not much difference with other hindi news channels.

    all english news channels’ pq is superb bro along with hindi news channels. 

    cud u please confirm me just the signal quality on those channels which are having issues. please bro ? also try to adjust ur lnb.

  21. @om bro

    cud u please tell me what are those channels in which u have blurredness or pixellated issues.
    please tell me the channel names atleast.  🙂

  22. few points from my side what i have noticed :

    1) picture quality has been decreased now ( what it used to be few months back )

    2) extremely poor customer service. no proper information given by cc.

    3) extremely poor technician services. technicians come to ur home and first they will take happy code and then they will close ur complaints and then they will ask u what is the issue.

    4) add ons are very very costly.

    5) hd add on is extremely costly. 204 rs. for only 28 hd channels

    6) lowest ROI base pack is of 254 rs. which is costliest pack in the industry. only 6 music channels are being provided in this pack. on the other hand d2h n tata sky provides all music channels in their lowest roi base packs.

    7) poor quality of hardwares n CPEs.

  23. totally agree om ji.  :welcome:
