  1. Is is Tata Sky Music or Music+ which will be given as offer? Neither costs Rs. 80/month. Also i think one temporary home channel will be added on LCN 101 to promote the HD offer, they changed position of Marathi Cinema promo channel today maybe bcoz of this.

  2. jingalala Saturday offer for 23rd dec.

  3. Toonami India to get shutdown soon
    Channel has Shifted Dragon Ball Super and DBZ Movies to CN India
    Shutdown will happen soon before CN HD+ is launched

  4. Good Morning Guys!

    Any update about addition of new channels on Tata Sky platform? Look like they are put on hold launch of Zee UP/Uttrakhand as like other occasions it will be accompanied by few others regarding which final formalities must be going on. Hope that Justforfun bro shares the awaited news soon.

  7. Why is Star Gold HD playing different content on mobile app than what is being shown on TV?

  8. Nilu bhai , i know these details. What i am stating is that it has not been added till now

  9. [quote=’aumnamonarayana’ pid=’96804′ dateline=’1513688378′]
    What happened to Fun Learn Junior addition? It has been 3 days past the announced launch date.

  10. tata sky mobile app

  11. leo hd pvr box..

  12. What happened to Fun Learn Junior addition? It has been 3 days past the announced launch date.

  13. Dhamaal English pack will be available for existing subscribers as well w.e f. 19 December. This is just a revamped version of the Metro Pack which Tata Sky used to have few years back. I am still not happy as for South Indian states Tata Sky is offering all these channels plus Sports Channels within Rs. 300.

    Lastly launch of “Tata Sky Fun Learn Senior & Junior ” service has been deferred, still no update about this. Hoping that after 19th December some mega news will be announced.

  14. Has Red Button been added on Star Gold Select for Premiere of Black & White print of Mughal E Azam?

  15. What happened to addition of “Fun Learn Junior” service? Wasn’t it supposed to launch today? Has it been postponed? Any updates Nilu Bro?

  16. Hi Guys, i noticed a very strange thing today morning related to storage space on my HD DVR. Till yesterday i had space to store about 6 hours of SD content & 2% of the total hard drive was empty but today suddenly free space has vanished & i am unable to schedule any new recording despite the fact that in this period there was no additional content recorded by me.

    Earlier Tata Sky used to reserve 160 GB out of the total 500 GB space on the Inbuilt hard drive of HD DVR to push/store the content under their “Ready To Play” service & it seems like now they have further reduced the actual storage space available for us.

  17. Expecting some major change post 20th December

  18. Again there is EPG info mismatch across all channels. This hss been happening at frequent intervals in last few months. MJ, Leader Bro any explanation you could share related to this activity? Are they shuffling slots on a transponder or some other thing is being done?

  19. ..

    सारथी परिवार को आपको यह बताते हुए अपार हर्ष हो रहा है कि कल यानि 14 दिसम्बर 2017 से आप अपने प्रिय सारथी चैनल को tata sky के चैनल नं. 1080 पर देख सकेंगे… कृपया आप अपने चैनल सारथी टीवी को ज्यादा से ज्यादा लोगों तक पहुंचाए और समय-समय पर हमारा मार्गदर्शन कर अपना सहयोग दें…

  20. Justforfun bro, any more details regarding change in LCN of some genres/channels. Has Tata Sky given any date when these changes will be brought to effect? Please do share new LCN of all the concerned channels as soon as you receive updates. Hope that all slots till 400 are cleared for Hindi Movies, English Movie Channels are shifted from 401 to 450 , Showcase from 270 to 299 & TV5Monde Asie + Australia Plus are moved to LCN 252 & 254 as these are not news channels.

  21. Looks like time is nearing for acquisition of Airtel Digital TV by Tata Sky as today Airtel has sold 20% stake in its DTH business to a private equity firm. I will try to explain why this happened. Currently according to cross holding regulations any foreign company cannot hold more than 20% directly (FDI) or more than 29% thru FII route in a vertically integrated business (distribution service providers like DTH, Cable etc.) , this means Tata Sky cannot directly buy Airtel DTH in this situation as their present shareholding will lead to Sky holding more than legal limit in the combined entity. After Airtel offloading 20%, Tata’s will directly acquire rest of the stake & later when norms are relaxed then Star will buy the shares of equity investor.

  22. Tatasky Going to Change English Genres , Showcase & Some Regional Genre channels LCNs soon . A software update will be done also to change the Favorite Channels numbers from 900-001 ..

  23. Has anyone noticed that Star Gold HD Channel on Tata Sky Live App (which redirects to Hotstar App as is the case for all Star India Channels) is not showing the same content as the satellite channel available on TV. Also live feed of all the Star Network channels on Hotstar App are not having logo of the channel.

  24. Special screening of “Mughal E Azam” in Original Black & White print through Add On Service on 17th December
    http://www.televisionpost.com/television/star-gold-select-hd-partners-select-dth-ops-to-showcase-mughal-e-azam-in-colour-bw/

  25. Exclusive Update Nilu Bro. Waiting to see all the channels which will be added along with Pitaara , one of them is Saarthi TV. Also high possibility that 9XO will be back. I am specially intetested in more Hindi Movie, Religious & International Channels specifically Euro News pluw CTGN.

  26. It’s confirmed now, Zee has bought UTV Movies as just now saw a banner ad stating that Dangal will premiere on UTV Movies on 30th December at 8 PM. If you all clearly remember that when Zee bought RBNL then Big Magic plus Big Ganga started airing old Zee Network Shows well before official announcement was made regarding acquisition. Similar thing is being repeated in this case.

  27. May be its for tomorrow Ind v Sri ODI match.
    They will show that SC message that DD National won’t show the match. Last time a scroll was shown on Ch.100

  29. Okay Bhai. Are u also getting black volume bar on Home Channel in ur HD/4K STB? Anyone having SD STB or getting other variant of home channels please do confirm this. Thanks

  30. Is some maintenance / uogradation activity planned for tomorrow? Black Volume bar appearing on Ch. 100 Platinum on my HD DVR. Hope there is some news regarding satellite migration. Waiting for information from Nilu Bro.

  31. 21st Century Fox is being bought by Disney hence Disney will get controlling stake in Sky too. It still needs to seen whether if this happens then Disney will really be interested in running a DTH platform across so many markets or this will be kept out of the deal. Let’s wait n see what happens. Earlier this year there was news that Star was planning to sell its stake in Tata Sky & Tata will fully own the business.

  32. Thanks for the quick clarifications. 

    So airtel will be selling its DTH completely to TS. So there wont be Airtel anymore in DTH industry. 

    ALso i heard the Sky may get more % of share in TS. Not sure how far its true

  33. Both Airtel & Tata Sky add their logo (watermark) on every channel from their Uplinking Centre so software has nothing to do with it.

    Small changes like not having dedicated buttons will be taken care of easily, not much to worry as right now too many subscribers having old stb/remote face this problem on both platforms . May be ITV option will open Tata Sky services in Airtel STB. Regarding changing Subscriber ID, well its not really important unless there is some overlapping.

    Apart from this there will be many other small compatibility issues which wilk be settled in few months or within a year when all the process is completed

  34. What about the software on Airtel STB, their logo needs to be changed. They need to get TS logo. Can that be done my Software update ??? 

    Airtel users need to get new Subscriber ID also, as existing ones wont work.

    How will airtel users use Active services with out having a button on airtel remote, also showcase ???

    I doubt Airtel STB being 100% compatible with TS.

  35. No need to replace Airtel STB , infact airtel dth users will continue to receive signals as it is. As Tata Sky users are migrated to SES satellite, software changes will take care of it & i believe that work has already been completed. Both Tata Sky & Airtel r using same technology to beam the channels hence there is no issue about interoperability.

    Regarding transponders, as i have stated before that each transponder on SES has 50% additional bandwidth compared to satellites made by ISRO. By acquiring Airtel, Tata Sky will get access to major base of its subscribers, additional bandwidth , future security & many other benefits. Revenue will also increase multifold owing to this & they will get great commanding power while entering agreements with broadcasters thus saving on that front too.

    Lastly, both Airtel & Tata Sky have introduced HEVC STB plus added Apps/Recording option in it so its another sign that HD subscribers will be shifted to this model. Also Tata Sky users will get to choose Android STB & finally Airtel users will be able to get hold of a good HD DVR STB.

  36. Aumnarayan bro,

    So TS will use Airtels Satellite, both SES 7 and SES 9 ??? 

    So GSAT 10 also will be given away. 

    If they are getting 2 satellites of airtel, they must be having space, so why HEVC ??? I mean they will use HEVC only if they run out of TP ???

    Does Airtel have 24 TPs to accommodate TS channels (TS uses 24 TP)

    Also TS will have major task to replace all Airtel STB, Airtel will have loss as recently they started giving HEVC HD STB

  37. Rahul bhai, airtel will get access to infrastructure of Airtel & as Tata Sky has had bitter experience with ISRO earlier as far as getting new transponders from indigenous satellite is concerned on its current orbit hence they will find it safer to opt for a foreign satellite where scope of expansion is more & much easier. Also Tp’s from SES have 50% additiinal bandwidth as compared to ISRO satellites.

    [color=#333333][size=small]Why will TS use SES satellite of airtel, if TS is acquiring Airtel DTH ??? TS has been given GSAT 10 right. So that means Airtel users will have to re align to TS Satellite.[/size][/color]

  39. Wait a little more bhai. Work at groud station is over, agreement with new channels have been signed, only thing left is the final formalities with Airtel & eventually announcements is soon due. MJ, RK bhai give more inside details from dealer or distributor end.

  40. [quote=’aumnamonarayana’ pid=’96119′ dateline=’1512632091′]
    Getting information that from Jan 2018, migration to new satellite will start. New Channels will be added on that satellite, existing subscribers will be told to get dish realigned plus additionally HD subscribers will be given HEVC STB as replacement. Process will be similar to what Airtel did when they switched to SES from Insat 4CR, old satellite will be switched off when all have been migrated. Waiting for announcement regarding acquisition of Airtel Digital TV & migration simultaneously. New Satellite will be SES for Tata Sky if Airtel deal goes thru.
    [/quote]not confirm….only rumours…

  42. Disney is in advanced stage of acquring almost
    all aasets of 21st Century Fox (except Fox News & Fox Sports). Interesting times ahead, hopefully Tata Sky will add In-House channels showing Disney Content soon after this is made official. Also now Disney will get control of Star Sports Channels in addition to ESPN where they are 50% stakeholders. Wonder if Sony will object to this as they surely won’t accept their partner operating competitor channels or maybe Disney & Sony will become merge their sports business. Looks like there will be either monopoly in this genre or ESPN will end their alliance with Sony & after few years launch ESPN as a separate channel. Waiting to see if Disney will also launch ABC network in India.

  43. Green TV has been discontinued by the broadcaster. Here is one of their frustrated farewell tweet where they have blamed PM for failure to bring change bcoz of bad policies. YouTube account of this channel has also removed now.

    https://mobile.twitter.com/GreenTV_India/status/936297885389295616

  44. Regular signal outage happening on all channels since last 20 mins. Guess satellite migration work has started or may be they are activating all chs for free. Waifing for updates

  45. but channel addition not happening till now

  46. As i had predicted few days back & now it’s coming true. Dhamaal channel is being discontinued w.e.f. 1st December

  47. [quote=’aumnamonarayana’ pid=’95332′ dateline=’1511500225′]
    EPG popping up automatically at regular intervals since last 1 hour, any chsnges on transponders?
    [/quote]yes…i m also notice…

  48. EPG popping up automatically at regular intervals since last 1 hour, any chsnges on transponders?

  49. 5 channel will be removed from 12th dec..

  50. EPG popping up automatically. Anything new or some changes on any transponder?

  51. Updates regarding Tata Sky channels & services

    – TV5Monde Asie has starting censoring content.
    – MTV SD has again reverted back to showing
    songs in 4:3 aspect ratio.
    – Few programs of some channels are not available on Mobile App. Noticed the same for Epic & MNX this morning.
    – Now you can stream content from App to ur
    Smart TV through screen mirroring or connect
    Chromecast to regular TV for the same . Also no need for HD Access Fee subscription to watch HD Channels.
    – Dhamaal Channel may shut down soon, following path of its predecessors like Bindass Play, Channel V . It is playing songs from only select music labels , in this case it’s Sony Music. From beginning it has struggled to get revenue & showed few ads plus teleshopping but now even those ads have disappeared.
    – Live Feed from Shirdi Sai Baba Temple available in “Full Screen” on Mobile App

  52. Another thing related to this which i want to share with you all is that earlier long before they started MPEG4 migration, they had started giving MPEG4 STB to all SD subscribers. Right now HEVC variant has been rolled out only for HD STB thus it’s quite clear that there is no immediate plan to shift SD subscribers to this compression technology.

  53. Recently Tata Sky was busy doing upgradation activities on its transponders so i decided to do some research as to what new technologies they have deployed earlier & comparing them with the new products they have introduced. Got hold of a article where it was stated that Tata Sky had deployed Ericsson AVP4000 encoders last year & going thru the article i got hold about a crucial point. This encoder supports many formats but HEVC is not one of them. Please click on the below link to read the article

    https://www.digit.in/audio-video/ericsson-outs-the-avp-4000-compression-portfolio-26167.html

    This emboldens what i had been sensing earlier that the current upgradation might be related to upgrading technology for supporting HEVC & possible migration to new satellite. I am quite sure that either all HD subscribers will be shifted to HEVC STB or if new satellite is not available then all subscribers will be moved to HEVC STB in a scheduled manner.

    Awaiting confirmation from Tata Sky. Hope MJ or Nilu bro break the news soon.

  54. [quote=’aumnamonarayana’ pid=’94792′ dateline=’1510920062′]
    Nilu bro, has Tata Sky renewed the agreement with Star India or is it confirmed that these channels will be dropped?
    [/quote]renewed….confirmed

  55. Nilu bro, has Tata Sky renewed the agreement with Star India or is it confirmed that these channels will be dropped?

  56. Not launched ,still no testing in cband I think

  57. Is Star Sports Kannada really launching from tomorrow?

    https://mobile.twitter.com/ganeshchetan/status/931032472778825729/photo/1

  58. Now all Horizontal & Vertical Transponders are having equal signal quality barring 11010, 11550 , 11590, 11630 & 11670. Signal quality of V Tp’s in the above frequencies is higher than H tp’s , this held true for all transponders before the recent upgradation activities but interestingly incase of 11630 & 11670 the situation is reverse which means Horizontal Transponders have the upper edge.

  59. Fortunately Tata Sky has not implemented HD Access Fee policy on its app hence if u are subscribed to SD version of channel/s through base pack, add ons or a-la-carte option then HD version can be accessed on mobile app. Also channels having just HD version in a particular genre can also been viewed along with this.

    Another thing i have noticed is that though Green TV has been added in Lifestyle Genre on STB but when u check the programme guide then one can see it listed under Knowedge category so does it mean that very soon LCN of this channel will also be changed?

  60. Has anyone noticed that CNN News18 & News18 India are telecasting all programs in 16:9 aspect ratio since yesterday.

  61. As per investigations from ED etc,. most of the TV channels are started to launder money. That is why we saw huge spike in new channels. When stricter norms are followed then many will vanish.

  62. Even there should be a cutoff/Limt of Channels count for a DTH …. now a days many channels r launching and shutdown regularly.. big players too doing this activity and suffering … the channels additions makes the subscriptions makes costly and more burdens for most other users in every DTH… every channels have own viewers either a little or substancial atleast makes them to run…     but actually most r just            erasing  the bandwidth/space of Transponders… According to me a limit or certaing channels count to be default and any new additions should be available only for a la carte … even FTA should be paid in a Private DTH ..ts bcoz now also there is no DTH providing any channel for free.means FTAin their de activated STB .. unlesss we subscribe minumum   pack..No one is watching all channels in a DTH… so a subscriber can pick and pay for his favourite channel…

  63. In 2013 there was news about Tata Sky changing to MPEG 4.

    [color=#101010][size=large]Tata Sky Managing Director, Mr. Harit Nagpal said, “We are replacing close to 5-6 million MPEG-2 SD STBs at no cost to consumers over the next year.” [/size][/color]

    [color=#101010][size=large][url=https://www.digit.in/audio-video/tata-sky-inks-mpeg-4-stb-contract-with-broadcom-will-replace-mpeg-2-stbs-free-of-charge-15252.html]https://www.digit.in/audio-video/tata-sky-inks-mpeg-4-stb-contract-with-broadcom-will-replace-mpeg-2-stbs-free-of-charge-15252.html[/url][/size][/color]

    For 60 lakh stbs it costed 900 crores (not 9000 crores). Then each stb will cost around Rs.1500? In open market during that time MPEG 4 stbs used to cost 1100 rupees per piece. So when they order in bulks it might be 500rs at most. 

    What I mentioned in that post about over invoicing was, to never take these figures at face value and it is/was done to benefit some mighty. 

    Even these loss making cries unbelievable. Suppose if .01% tax is increased then these people charge us for that telling costs increased and they can’t afford losses. But they want us to believe they will run loss making DTH services for years and years for no known reasons.

  64. Tata Sky is launching Mosaic service for Hindi Movies genre, wef 17th Nov (10:00 AM).
    Please tune into channel# 300.

  65. New Channel coming soon

    https://mobile.twitter.com/ap24x7justin/status/930334267778805761

    Also True Punjabi , MV India, Astrovaani & many other channels getting added soon

  66. QYOU will have a new linear Indian Feed w.e.f. 15th November. Showing new program blocks in EPG from this day onwards.

  67. Great explanation Amatan bro. Even if Tata Sky moves to HEVC still they won’t be able to accomodate current channels without compressing more let alone adding new channels using just 12 trabsponders. Also i don’t think HEVC transition will be more cost effective than hiring new transponders.Regarding favors granted during MPEG4 migration, i would really love to know what are you referring to as i am unable to guess the same.

  68. Some where I read that Insat 4A is working beyond its lifetime and it can die any moment and that was the reason they cannot rent out its transponders to others and hence they allowed Tata Sky to use it till it lasts. Motive of this can be understood easily considering closeness between those two. But this was the official statement.

    HEVC  fta stb costs around 10$ a piece if we buy in bulk like 1000 stbs. So incase of Tata Sky it might be lot lesser than this and offcourse CAM etc.,. needed so more or less it might reach 10$ per stb. Earlier those 9000 crores are over invoicing and reasons for that are well known why it was done and to favour whom.

    I don’t know how many active subscribers on Tatasky but it will be atleast 1 crore. So it will cost them 630 to 650 crores to change all old stbs to HEVC. 

    [color=#222222][font=sans-serif]The bit rate reductions for HEVC were determined based on PSNR with HEVC having a bit rate reduction of 35.4% compared with H.264/MPEG-4 AVC HP, 63.7% compared with MPEG-4 ASP, 65.1% compared with H.263 HLP, and 70.8% compared with H.262/MPEG-2 MP[/font][/color]

    [color=#222222][font=sans-serif]This is as per wiki.[/font][/color]

    [color=#222222][font=sans-serif]Lets assume 4A dies, they will have to remove lots of channels. On average they pack around 40-45 channels per tp. They have only 8 tps left for SD channels means 45 * 8 = 360 channels on mpeg 4. [/font][/color]

    [color=#222222][font=sans-serif][color=#222222][font=sans-serif]Now if they have HEVC then they will get 35% more space  which wont have been earlier. [/font][/color][/font][/color]

    [color=#222222][font=sans-serif][color=#222222][font=sans-serif]So 35% of 360 is 126 more channels can be added! [/font][/color][/font][/color]

    [color=#222222][font=sans-serif]If each channel gives 3-5 crores per year then they can take out the amount spent on those stbs in a year. Incase they didn’t they can save 35% cost on transponder rent! More the channels, better for TataSky to market itself. [/font][/color]

    [color=#222222][font=sans-serif]This is why Sun Direct may have went to HEVC fully.[/font][/color]

  69. Okay Sir. Take care of ur health, i pray to the almighty for ur healthy & happy life. It’s been a great learning experience for all of us by interacting with u over the past decade. Do keep visiting here as per ur convenience even if its for casual discussion.

    Regarding Tata Sky moving all subscribers to HEVC, i don’t think it will happen in near future unless there is some emergency & drastic step is needed like it happened few years back. Hiring a new transponder costs Rs. 10-12 crore annually but changing all STB’s to HEVC would mean spending over 20000 crore. Remember just migrating SD viewers to MPEG4 costed Rs. 9000 crore.They would anyday prefer moving to new orbit rather than converting to HEVC considering huge cost & risk implications arising out of delays by ISRO in providing new satellite.

  70. 1stly time has come to disappear although not completely…the sat updates from Mr.Bhat is done..i have tatasky connection and may get some from there only..there r personal issues ….i have removed all dishes bcoz my house is getting renovations..no space for new installations..so its over..now my health too not allowing to do something what i was updating…man kare,vakth mile tho login karna.. its longtime? 11 years of participations in forums..seen almost everything…seen many persons,members but only few handpicked guys still i want to interact just as friends…still here i can get them..rootna manaana hothaa rehathaa hai lekin kuch logon ko bhoolaa nahee jaathaa..
    On topic..
    They r now quickly migrating to HEVC in coming weeks as i think…A life time in a DTH is meant for 5 years or max 10 years bcoz the technology gets changing/improving/upgrading very very quickly..i think there is no other new technology better than HEVC till todate..u can see the timespan of MPEG2 still exists although its bcoming older..
    On the other hand Insat 4A can survive for 2-3 more years if everything goes. correctly..the said lifetime is not the ultimate..u also know that its just a calculations..there r many instances of sats given full services even after calculated lifetime..
    I think Amatan can explain more in details..

  71. Hello Bhat Sir
    Welcome back to our family. Where do u disappear at regular intervals? Really miss seeing u here. Hope that this time u continue to be part of the forum & with ur vast experience & knowledge we are able to get more exciting updates & information.

    Tata Sky already has a back up plan & it will revealed very soon. Let’s see if they move to HEVC or get a new satellite in same or different orbit. If they get new transponders on same orbit then also i think they will shift all HD subscribers to HEVC STB in the near future but incase they have no option but to continue using only GSat 10 or move to different orbit then shifting all subscribers to HEVC will be more cost efficient rather than getting new transponders & realigning all dishes. Though i have to say that they will be very cautious before deciding on the second option as previously too ISRO had made them wait for 6 years to get new satellite, they won’t like to take the same risk again even if they have to spend some more dollars to secure their future by moving to different orbit. Moving to HEVC is not a lifetime solution, currently they are airing all chs on MPEG4 compression using 24 transponders, if Insat 4A ends then using HEVC compression (which can carry same channels in 50% bandwidth) they can accommodate all the current channels on the 12 transponders of GSat 10 but again within few months they will run out of bsndwidth.

    I think we would have surely have known by now if they were thinking to migrate all subscribers to HEVC, why would they wait till last knowing that there can be blackout of channels as Insat 4A is nearing end. Let’s wait to see what’s in store.

  72. @Mr Bhat ji,

    When does the transponder compression system upgradation complete ???

    Also any idea when INSAT 4A goes off ??? When can we expect HEVC migration ???

  73. @Dino…
    I think no new sat for tatasky till ISRO provides replacement for Insat 4A in the same orbit… By Moving to HEVC Tatasky will get sufficiant bandwidth .. i think even moving to HEVC will be more cheaper than new Transponders from another orbit.. Replacing HEVC STB will be a lifetime solution for searching  new space/Transponders in 2-3 years for space…

  74. If its so, why is tata sky still giving normal HD STB to new connections in some areas. Wont it be extra work for them to change again, also money wise too

    I guess the new Advt is for TS Beauty

  75. I think the new ad featuring Mouni Roy will be related to official launch of HEVC STB & starting of satellite migration process. May be all HD subscribers will be shifted to this STB as all the new HD channels will be available only in HEVC format after replacement satellite is activated. As process moves ahead , slowly current HD chs will also be moved to HEVC format.

  76. Why Tata Sky cc told Animax 686 it’s Sony Yay na ?
    Cc must be new

  77. So bro we can expect that to be competed by this month

  78. 2 more remaining 🙂

  79. How many more such upgradation activity are left  ???

  80. Has anyone noticed drastic improvement in picture quality of Epic SD? Has Tata Sky increased its bit rate? I believe after upgradation activity ends we will get some major news. Hopefully things will be clear by next week

    Channel Addition starting next week. Deals finalised with new channels, only LCN allotment is pending which will be completed by end of this week.
    [/quote]which channel left bro?
    already many channel available in tata sky.

  86. Channel Addition starting next week. Deals finalised with new channels, only LCN allotment is pending which will be completed by end of this week.

  87. Tata Sky Kids Cinema airing Japanese anime movie I hope they will bring anime content for me I’m ready to pay for animes

  88. Polimer Kannada removed from STB ?

  89. Changed my Tata Sky Package as I couldn’t afford cost 400 Rs Sports Dhamaka so I will opt when cricket matches are there watch at 2 Rs that’s good
    New Package Dhamaka 199 RS + MTV + Disney XD = 228 RS PM

  90. @leader, @mj786 bro, any new changes on various test channels present across transponders ? So many test channels are present on 10970 V, 11510 V & so many other tp’s. Please let us know what is currently being run on these slots. It would be great if u can post screenshot every test slot on which there is a video feed. Thanks.

  91. As i had stated on 24th October in this thread that Jingalala Offer on 4th November will be for English Entertainment Pack , now it has been confirmed. This proves that my calculation was right that Tata Sky is following same schedule for rolling out these offers.

  92. Tata Sky World Series HD (LCN 202) has been removed today.

  93. Previously too they have placed such random logos/information on many channels & later removed it. Still remember seeing “VOD” logo few times on Showcase Channels. They test such things on various slots before using it in their promos or services.

  94. Can anyone explain what is this?  they are testing News18 India on Test service slot and is showing Watch this in HD on 128  , while 128 is LCN of Sony HD .. could this be that they are planning for Sony Repeats?

    [align=center][attachment=1570][/align]

  95. There might be a double treat in store for us as part of tomorrow’s Jingalala Saturday Offer . HD Access @ Rs. 5 for first one month may be provided & additional offer might be related to some service or TEN 1 channel which can be activated at just Re. 1 for first month.

    Nilu bro, can you please tell that you noticed this change on which STB? Kindly provide the model, manufacturer & software version of ur STB. Also is this change also visible on 4K Box?? . This will help clear all the doubts & we will be able to cross-check the same at our end too.Thanks
    [/quote]this change only new hd (Technicolor) stb…not 4k stb..

  97. Nilu bro i am waiting for ur response.

    Update – FYI TV18 is now available in 16:9 aspect ratio on Tata Sky platform. Don’t know if new SD feed has been added or just aspect ratio of downscaled feed has been changed. I guess HD feed addition is nearing. Awaiting more updates & confirmation.

  98. Nilu bro, can you please tell that you noticed this change on which STB? Kindly provide the model, manufacturer & software version of ur STB. Also is this change also visible on 4K Box?? . This will help clear all the doubts & we will be able to cross-check the same at our end too.Thanks

    Bro the pic Nilu Bro posted is not of HEVC HD STB, its of normal HD STB.
    [/quote]yes….not hevc..

  100. Bro the pic Nilu Bro posted is not of HEVC HD STB, its of normal HD STB.

  101. Read in this thread itself that on HEVC STB entry point has changed under system details, i guess Nilu Bro had mentioned this.

    Also has anyone noticed that Sadhna Plus UP/UK has been replaced with Sadhna Plus News MP/CG on LCN 540. Is this a change from broadcaster end or only on Tata Sky? Can any Dish TV subscriber check & tell if you are still able to watch Sadhna Plus UP/UK on your STB. Thanks

  102. Bro, on my HEVC HD STB,  entry point still shows IN4A-14 11010.

    I didnt get which box ur talking about

  103. Some major announcement will be made soon. Daily after midnight till early morning hours they are doing some or the other technical work , as i watch TV during these hours hence clearly noticed regular disruptions on many channels. Already Entry Point on HEVC STB changed to 11550 V (GSat 10) which i had preempted long back when they shifted all the important channels to this TP. May be they will start migration to HEVC STB as soon as they shift to new satellite. Also this may be connected to making technical adjustments to add Airtel DTH subscribers on their network post acquisition. Lot of new channels are waiting to get added on Tata Sky platform since last 6 months. Hopefully MJ Bro & Leader Bro will unlock the mystery soon. 🙂

  104. Tonight Ts planned to upgrade 2 Tps with new compression technology Tp K-3 & Tp K-4 🙂

    Now 6 more Tp remaining to get full compression .

  105. That’s a sad news Bhai. Have been watching this channel since my childhood days, will really miss it. Star India tried to increase its viewership but despite continuous efforts desired results were not achieved. Brands were not showing much interest to advertise on this channel hence revenue was crumbling while due to hyper & stiff competition investment for running the channel was going up. Unless a broadcaster is able to sustain a channel financially they will obviously think about discontinuing it & launch a more profitable business proposition in its place which is why they are replacing it now with Star Sports Kannada as Indian , ICC plus IPL events rake in maximum dollars. Don’t be surprised if before IPL some more regional sports channels are launched by Star India, they have paid a humongous amount for worldwide IPL rights & will go tooth & hammer to squeeze out each penny from our pocket. I think they have made a mistake & viewers will make them learn a lesson the hard way just like what happened in the “Select HD” case. Already i have stopped subscribing to sports channels bcoz of high & unfair pricing. Even Star World is also getting very poor TRP ratings each week, hope that they don’t shut it too. SWP HD is also a waste now, it has no chance for survival. Wait n Watch!

  106. Dino bro Channel V getting Shutdown from 16 November Star Sports Kannada will replace it bad news

  107. Nilu bro, is this change in new home tp/entry point in all new HD HEVC STB or only in ur STB.?

  108. new box entry point..

  109. Now i can easily tell what will be the upcoming Jingalala Saturday & Afternoon offers each week. Tata Sky is having a set schedule for these offers which they are following on a continuous basis. Going through previous offers & understanding the pattern can easily reveal what’s in store for coming week. According to my calculation, Jingalala Offer for 4th November will be “English Entertainment Pack” @Re. 1

  110. I think they will change LCN of English Movie Channels to accommodate more Hindi Movie Channels on their platform. It would have been better if Showcase Channels are placed between LCN 270 to 299 & English Movie Channels are listed between LCN 401 to 450. International Channels like to TV5Monde Asie & Australia Plus should be shifted to LCN 251 & 253 & all the slots till LCN 269 should be reserved for future additions in Non-News International Channels genre.

  111. Lets see if its a mistake or really changing

  112. Is Tata Sky planning to change LCN of some channels or this is just a mistake?

    https://mobile.twitter.com/shukla_akshata/status/921999583017762821/photo/1

  113. That’s why I hate Indian channel totally bad I love only sports and NHK World only now 🙂

  114. Two of the most pathetic channels on Tata Sky platform are BFlix Movies & Yo TV (Pratinidhi TV). BFlix shows unknown dubbed low budget south indian movies all day that too with continuous repetition while Yo TV is busy spreading some useless propaganda. Yo TV was unavailable from broadcaster end since last 2 days & now its playing some VHS Tape on a loop basis. Hope these 2 are removed asap. Even Sky Star Movies is better than them , i am saying this despite the fact that it shows teleshopping for 15 hours & old Bollywood Movies rest of the time.

    Brothers, when will TRAI Tariff Order come into effect? In August Order was reserved by Madras High Court & there is another case filed by Tata Sky & Airtel in Delhi High Court whose hearing will start only when former decision is made public. Will this go on for some more years. What’s causing this delay? No update from any quarter. I think we will end up on losing ground.

    You can read this for reference

    http://www.televisionpost.com/trai-tdsat/tariff-order-delhi-hc-to-wait-for-madras-hc-judgment/

    From both ends Star & Tata Sky are making sure thar we keep paying more.

    @nilu bro, have u received update regarding addition of new Showcase channels tomorrow?
    [/quote]added

  116. Good find dino.. yes it might be launched

  117. I am sensing that 30 day lock-in policy has been reintroduced for Sports Channels & Add On Packs. Waiting for confirmation. They have launched a new pack called “Match Pack” @Rs. 10/day which will enable subscribers to watch SS 1 & SS 1 Hindi on each match day of India Vs NZ series. I have this doubt as right now we can opt for these two channels @Rs. 2/day & drop it next day thus costing Rs. 4 then why would anyone pay 6 rupees more by opting for “Match Pack”

  118. Sad both good channel going down ??

  119. This is what i found out on internet regarding DMAX, an old article from March 2017. Host of other channels mentioning in this article like CBeebies, BBC HD etc. are still awaiting clearance while some have got the licence now in the last few months like Disney International HD 9XM HD, DSport HD . This means that it’s taking a hell of a long time to start a channel in India & many broadcasters might even shelve their plans.
    http://www.televisionpost.com/television/112-tv-channel-licences-hanging-fire-with-the-mib/

  120. Bro, any official confirmation regarding this? I can’t see any name change in the latest MIB list or any mention of DMAX.

  121. Yes Discovery Turbo Applied for a name change of its license in Mib also planning to launch “DMAX” a premium English movie channel in India 🙂

  122. Expecting that 9XO HD will also be launched soon by Zee to counter Vh1 , being a English Music Channel it makes perfect sense to cater to HD Audience as they are major consumers of such content. I am sure Zee will make sure that both SD & HD feed are available on Tata Sky. These days Zee is even ignoring its sister concern Dish TV as far as signing agreement for HD channels is concerned as they know fully well that only Tata Sky commands a major lead as far as reaching out to English & International Content Fans.

    Also Discovery might shut down Discovery Science & Discovery Turbo soon, a new premium HD channel might be launched showing niche content from both Science & Turbo plus additional programs.

  123. Brothers, when will TRAI Tariff Order come into effect? In August Order was reserved by Madras High Court & there is another case filed by Tata Sky & Airtel in Delhi High Court whose hearing will start only when former decision is made public. Will this go on for some more years. What’s causing this delay? No update from any quarter. I think we will end up on losing ground.

    You can read this for reference

    From both ends Star & Tata Sky are making sure thar we keep paying more.

    @nilu bro, have u received update regarding addition of new Showcase channels tomorrow?

  124. MJ Bro, changes were made at the time i mentioned in the post. They had already added Mumbai Film Festival HD on 11090 V few hours earlier & at midnight they just activated it from new transponder on the STB & removed it from earlier slot

  125. Mumbai Film Festival HD channel will be shifted to 11090 V between 00:00 to 00:30 AM tonight. Also may be SD feed of this channel may be shifted to 11510 V & World Series HD to 11090 V.

    Tonight upgradation activity has been planned on 11170 V.

    MJ Bhai & Leader Bro can you please check tomorrow morning if you notice any change in parameters or bitrate of channels present on this transponder.

  126. what is it mean bro?

  127. Bollywood premiere channel showing
    VOD[emoji15]

  128. Don’t know bhai. Let’s wait and see. Might be some thing related to deploying new technology or migrating channels to new satellite or testing of HEVC standard before rollout of replacing current MPEG 4 HD STB’s. Now even talks are there about Tata Sky acquiring Airtel, if this happens alongwith Tata Sky acquiring new Tp’s on Asiasat then may be GSat & Insat will be vacated & the combined subscriber base will receive channels from Asiasat & SES satellites as they are co-located. May be as Airtel helped in absorbing some liability of Tata’s mobile services, they will reciprocate & help Airtel in some way. Tata Sky will get access to huge infrastructure of Airtel DTH so they won’t mind spending some bucks for migration process. These are just rough guesses from myself, don’t know exactly what’s cooking . 🙂

  129. channel tps change?or any other changes?

  130. Update

    Two transponders on which upgradation will happen are 11050 H & 11510 V

  131. [quote=’aumnamonarayana’ pid=’92531′ dateline=’1507886257′]
    Nilu Bhai, Jingalala Offer kya hai kal ka?
    [/quote]no update

  132. Nilu Bhai, Jingalala Offer kya hai kal ka?

  133. Update

    Tata Sky World Series HD will be removed w.e.f. 16th October & Showcase 4 SD/HD may be added back for premiering “Pirates Of The Carribbean 5” in Hindi/Regional Languages.

    Nilu Bhai, any update about Jingalala Saturday offer for tomorrow? I believe it will be Kids Pack @ Re. 1.

  134. Oh yes you’re right .. than Housefull Movies may replace as its from same network.

  135. Justforfun bro, i believe it is Vaa Movies which is shutting down w.e.f. 4th November.

  136. Its shutting down from 4th Nov as per info.

  137. Is Multiplex Channel (LCN 352) being removed from 13th October because it’s shutting down?

  138. brightness increase in all channel in Tata sky

  139. I believe Youth will also watch Animax HD and Disney International HD if they are dubbed in Hindi and other languages

  140. To which TP are they shifting ??? AFAIK they dont have empty TPs.

  141. This is just awesome. This week too “Channel V” has got excellent ratings. They have got above 66000 impressions. Considering that they air youth entertainment shows these days , that too not fresh seasons/shows/episodes but still they are getting almost 5 or 6 times more viewership than their competitors like Zing, MTV & Bindass. Looks like making a transition to music genre gave them more visibility bcoz youth surf through this genre in large numbers & now as many more know about this channel hence their previous programming strategy seems to be connecting with the audience in a great manner. It was a mistake to previously get it listed under Hindi Entertainment Category.

    This is why it is important to consider all aspects before launching or revamping a channel. Content, Distribution (including making it available in lowest packs + in most powerful transponder of DTH platform), Marketing, Brand Connect , Proper Packaging etc. need to be in place for success to follow.

    I was thinking that they will shut down this channel but such numbers will now surely motivate them to launch new programs. Let’s wait n watch. BARC should list this channel under Youth Category now so that their leadership in this genre is brought to notice of advertisers & brands.

  142. I believe work started on shifting channels from Insat 4A to new satellite. Yesterday night all channels on 11550 H went blank & tonight same activity is planned for 11590 H. Hopefully by Diwali good news will be announced. They are giving this a name of upgradation of compression system which can either mean deployment of new technology or to keep us in dark they are using this term & in reality just shifting channels to new satellite. Waiting to get confirmation from MJ/Leader/Justforfun bro soon regarding this.

  143. Tp 22 Will get compress upgradation tonight with 16 channels .

  144. Both are HD. But i want to get in the STB from room to hall and make it primary, and take hall STB to room and make it secondary. 

    if i just exchange then when i drop multi TV pack, my hall STB will get deactive, so i want to convert them

  145. I think you can..

    But if both the boxes are same (means HD or SD) then why dont you replace those boxes itself?  For Example if your Primary stb is in Hall and secondary in Room and you want to exchange then simply replace those boxes.

  146. [color=#141414][size=small]I want to know if one can convert primary connection to secondary/Multi tv (STB), and secondary/Multi tv to primary (STB) ???? how can it be done[/size][/color]

  147. Tatasky launching “Star Plus Repeats @LCN.118 W.E.F 10th Oct at 10:00 hours 🙂

  148. Yes it’ll be chargeable .

  149. Thanks again bro for the info.
    So we can expect the USB recording update in november.

    Any idea if exchange will be free or we have to pay ?

  150. Currently HEVC HD STB not Available for exchange for old Subscribers only for NEW Customers its Available .. From Nov 1st week its launching officially along with Heera SD STB .. so after that you’ll get to exchange your old STBs/Multi Tv 🙂

  151. Thanks for the info @justoffun bro.

    So what if existing HD users want recording feature and want to buy the new HEVC HD STB, any exchange offer ??? Pls do ask your sources  and it will be a big help.

    Also has TS stopped giving existing HD STB to new connections and multi TV ???are they giving HEVC HD STB to all new and multi connections

  152. Only HEVC HD STB to enable recording n New satellite details for HEVC & All other STBs. No channels migration to HEVC technology currently planned. Because Ts will migrate to new Satellite .
    Insat4a last is Feb 2018 .

  153. So will all STB get the update or only HEVC ones?
    Also what about the migration of HD channels to HEVC, and do we have to exchange the STB ?

  154. Yes, this new software update is surely linked to changing technical or satellite parameters/settings on the STB which is necessary to receive channels from new satellite once it is activated.

  155. @justforfun bro, what software update, and for which STB ?

  156. Currently addition delayed due to HD HEVC stb launch.. After software release new addition will happen.

  157. I am getting HD+1 channels. Only new customers are not getting. I dont know what TS is saying in their tweet that its removed, but how is that many are getting.

    The reason is that new customers bouquet is different that the actual customers. If u see the bouquet name should be HD zapper for HD users and SD Zapper for SD users. HD PVR will have HD PVR and 4K will have 4K.

    New customers will have welcome pack. and after free 1 month it will get converted to actual. 

    May be they will remove once recording feature gets activated on new HD HEVC STB, as of now its disabled. 

    I also want to know if TS will migrate HD channels to HEVC from MPEG 4, and will existing users exchange their STB ???

  158. Justforfun bro is it confirmed that Tata Sky will migrate all HD customer to HEVC STB? Also any latest updates about satellite migration & channel addition? You had said that 27 new Channels will be added between 1st & 5th October but till now that has not happened. Please get some information from your sources.

    Thanks

  159. Yes as per plan Ts will soon remove +1 HD channels n launch Repeats SD .. they’re removing because now they have launched HEVC HD STB with recording facility 🙂

  160. Been hearing since last few days that many HD subscribers are not able to view “+1 HD” Channels on their STB. They are getting SD feed of “+1” Channels instead of that. Many complaining on Twitter too about this. Technical issue , policy change or is Tata Sky planning to remove these channels?
    https://mobile.twitter.com/TataSky/status/916906157922336768

  161. Yes bhai, 9XO will come back on Tata Sky. Deal was not renewed earlier as current investors were in process of exiting & wanted that all the process of renewing the agreement should be done by new owners which is the right thing to do as some financially dispute can arise out of this & create unnecessary issues at last moment.

    Waise now Tata Sky subscribers are enjoying watching new Bollywood Movie Premieres at such a cheap cost. Earlier Tata Sky used to charge over Rs. 100/day to watch a Bollywood Movie on Showcase but now we can 1 or 2 new movies in a single day at just Rs. 2.50/day & then unsubscribe the service next day. Can’t get cheaper than this. 🙂

  162. Zee acquired 9x media so 9xo may come on Tata Sky and dish TV now

  163. Marathi & Kannada Regional Audio Music Channels & Gujarati Devotional Audio Music Channel removed from Tata Sky Music.

  164. Looks like “Tata Sky Beauty” service is launching in next 1 or 2 days as “Infotainment” promo channel has been shifted from LCN 118 to LCN 131.

  165. After Lossing IPL they are running for Food

  166. According to description of food food on Sony liv seems like Sony will buy food food

  167. May be bhai as “Food Food” is facing huge financial losses since a long time & investors have been looking to sell majority stake. Earlier Talks with Discovery Networks were called off after lot of discussion , let’s see if deal with Sony goes through or not

  168. Is Sony buying Food Food Channel ? recently food food added on Sony LIV App

  169. “Tata Sky Welcome” (LCN 99) has been removed today.

  170. not good…..
    dd not provide hd feed….poor service..

  171. NHK World airing Anime Super Nova enjoy Tata Sky Customers at lcn 642

  172. thanks for update detective dino bro..

  173. Will Travel XP Downscaled HD feed be replaced with New SD feed w.e.f. 1st October? EPG of Travel XP SD is completely different from its HD counterpart from this day onwards.

  174. India Vs Australia Cricket Match can be viewed at no additional cost (even if u have not subscribed it on STB) on Tata Sky Mobile App. Tune into Star Sports 1 HD & Star Sports 1 Hindi HD in Live TV section.

    Source – Got message on RMN this Evening.

  175. Showcase SD/HD 4 & 5 may be dropped w.e.f. 1st October to accommodate new channels.

  176. “Tata Sky Beauty” interactive service channel launching soon. It will be added on LCN 118 as per information given in this tweet.

    https://mobile.twitter.com/nidstertalk/status/912643289467076608

  177. Sony BBC Earth now on Tata Sky on Demand

  178. I’m hoping Animax content should be brought back as service channel or similar service

  179. durga puja special..

  180. Hindu Dharam from Tv5 Network Launching its Devotional Channel This October 🙂

    Also about 25-27 channels addition happening on Tatasky from Oct 1-5 .

  181. Great News Justforfun bro. Please get more information about Channel Addition & migration to new satellite.

    P.S. – By the way Channel V is getting great success post converting into a Youth Channel again. Previously they used to get around 30000 or 40000 impressions, now they are getting upwards of 60000 since last 2 weeks. They are far ahead of Zing, MTV & Bindass which get between 8000- 17000 impressions in Youth Category. BARC needs to shift Channel V to Youth Genre now.. Here are this week’s data

    http://www.radioandmusic.com/biz/resources/170923-barc-week-37-mastiii-maintains-its-mark-other-channels

  182. Tv5 Monde Asié HD coming soon on Tatasky 🙂

  183. Hope some good channel like Euro News NHK Premium NHK WORLD HD 9xo get added rather than stupid carriage fee channels

  184. Good update nilu bro. This must be the “Bangla Garbo” service which their content head had referred to many months back in news articles.

    Really excited to know that beginning 25th September how many channels will be added on the platform.

  185. 25th sep. short film..

  186. Expecting mega addition to start from 25th September. On that day they are removing Tamil & Telugu Language Feeds of all Cartoon Channels which are currently available on separate LCN’s in the respective regional genre, may be this is being done to accommodate new channels. Also Zee Tamil LCN being changed on 27th for addition of its HD feed. Fingers Crossed.

  187. Another music channel bites the dust after MTunes & Channel V. Next in line may be Zee ETC after the deal with 9X Media goes through as 9X, 9X Jalwa will be sufficient to cater to New/Old Bollywood & Non Bollywood Music. 9XO will continue to show International Music while 9X Jhakaas may be renamed & brought under Zee Brand as that would connect more with local people considering they are already leaders in that market. Hopefully Zee’s fight with T- Series will also get sorted alongwith this takeover.

  188. Now scroll running on Channel 100 about banning of cricket telecast on DD National.

  189. Menu option in mytatasky.com section is not opening. I am referring to the menu tab present on mytatasky.com page after you have logged in. Anyone facing this issue?

  190. Here is the confirmation about soon to be launched “MAMI Special” Channel

    https://mobile.twitter.com/anupamachopra/status/910465511087071232

  191. I guess they will convert HD channels to HEVC in phases and once majority of the HD channels get converted, they will exchange old STB with new. Just like how they did for SD STB when they migrated from MPEG 2 to MPEG 4.

    Hope they exchange the HD STB for free.

  192. But what about HD boxes? they cannot replace those , its huge base

  193. Now only SD PVR is left to be updated with new software, hopefully post completion of this we will get some news regarding migration to new satellite. Also i think Tata Sky will upgrade to HEVC for HD channels soon, this will cost much less in comparison to leasing new transponders.

  194. Good Update Nilu Bro. Finally all Maa Network Channels will have “Star” incorporated in their logo, it was long due. Also good to hear that SD PVR is getting the new software after a long wait. I guess there will only a handful of subscribers left having this model & hence Tata Sky implements changes on this STB at a very last stage.

    I have a query too. Since today, language options are messed up on NDTV GoodTimes , English is giving Hindi Audio, Tamil is giving English & Hindi is giving Tamil Audio. Is it same on other DTH platforms or is it an issue from Tata Sky end?

  195. new software humax sd pvr box box..

  196. 5 channel renamed w.e.f. 20th sep..

  197. MAMU special was Tata Sky’s forte few years back, all the interactive services they kept on adding without caring about popular SD & HD channels & bandwidth scarcity was the excuse. Now that MAMI has come to the house so everything is in order & even relationship with neighbors (rival broadcasters) has become cordial else earlier they Tata Sky only befriended its own family members or other elitist club members. 🙂

    Coming to the main point, RT Movies has now been dropped from all private DTH platforms & now i expect it to come on Tata Sky platform alongwith its other peers.

  198. Mami special in October.. toh Mamu special kab aayega ?

  199. Tata Sky will add MAMI Special Channel in October. It may be available on LCN 301 & 302 in HD/SD feed.

    http://www.thehindu.com/entertainment/movies/we-will-give-you-great-moviesarty-mainstream-left-or-right-of-centre/article19710235.ece

  200. TS launched new model SD STB and new model HD HEVC STB. See if any one can get details of the same

  201. Expecting major announcement on 21st & rollout of new channels, services, offers & products during festival period right till Diwali.

  202. Don’t worry Animax bro, just like Star India learnt a hard lesson when very few subscribed to “Select” HD channels & thus were forced to change strategy similarly after they will notice that people are not showing interest in subscribing to their regular channels owing to their high price then automatically new policy will be thought about. BCCI is milking these broadcasters by charging 40 to 50 crore for a single ODI or T20 match & they pass this on to us to generate maximum revenue but surely a time will come when they will bear losses & be forced to enter a sensible deal that is profitable for all. Money is important but this is just plain greed & lust for money. Regular population is under so much stress due to such high inflation at all fronts. Market will have to adjust or their business will vanish in thin air soon.

  203. Tata Sky following stars idealogy

  204. Update

    Tata Sky will not broadcast DD National today when India Vs Australia Cricket Match is being aired on this channel. A banner will be displayed that “As per order of the honourable Supreme Court, cricket is not available on this channel. To watch cricket, tune into Channel 455/460. “.

  205. star sports select add on hd service name change to..

    ” star sports select add on hd experience”

  206. Has anyone noticed that apart from TV5Monde Asie, Australia Plus is also showing uncensored content. In last few weeks they have aired shows like The Beautiful Lie & Rake whicj showed nudity. Yesterday they aired a report as part of current affairs show “The Link” in which nude people were shown (only genitals were covered while breasts & hips were clearly visible throughout).

    Do anyone of you watch these channels? They air good documentaries too alongwith movies, shows & news. I prefer watching international channels bcoz of good quality of content. None of the Indian Channels care to produce informative content that covers all aspects from across the world.

  207. migration not confirm till now..

  208. Now it’s confirmed that LCN change of Tata Sky Kids Cinema SD/HD has nothing to do with addition of Hindi Movies Mosaic service. Some In-House Channel will be added in the vacant slots.

    Secondly someone was saying few days back that on Zee ETC Bollywood Channel he is getting squeezed picture, request him to go to user settings, select picture settings & choose 16:9 as TV screen format for both SD & HD TV type & “stretch” as conversion for 4:3 input video. Your issue will be resolved, mistakenly Tata Sky has activated aspect ratio settings for this SD channel which is usually done for SD or HD Channels which are run in 16:9 Aspect Ratio from broadcaster end. Only people using AV Cable or RF cable will be affected by this.

  209. @aumnamo, check your PM.

  210. set max hd picture blurred last 2 hours..

  211. Tata Sky has started displaying Ratings for each program aired on TV5 Monde Asie .

  212. EPG of all channels messed up since last 30 minutes. Some major work is on at Uplinking Centre.

  213. Tata Sky has removed MH1 Music from My99 & Dhamaaka 199 base pack

  214. Tata Sky is planning to bring back Animax again soon maybe as service channel

  215. Post it in this thread Amatan Bro. Thanks

  216. I can. 1 minute video will come to 9MB. How to send it?

  217. I am not getting this channel 🙁

  218. Hi brothers, can you please post a 2 minute video of Vh1 SD from any DTH or Cable platform you are subscribed to apart from Tata Sky. Since Tata Sky has replaced downscaled HD feed of Vh1 HD with new SD feed of Vh1, i have noticed that Audio Quality of this SD Channel is really poor. The cause of this issue is that “Audio Peak” settings have not been correctly adjusted for this channel, just want a confirmation whether this is the fault from Tata Sky or Viacom 18 end. Please make sure that you record the video while any song is being aired & audio is clearly recorded. Thanks

  219. I saw this image in their website

    [img]https://skyline.be/sites/default/files/screenshots/satellite1.jpg[/img]

  220. That explains the video/audio distortions that many were facing some days back. The new technology is being implemented hence the issue

  221. No information/latest update about satellite migration but it is bound to happen. This technology will help Tata Sky to keep a tab on content acquisition options & new compression standard availability across vendors throughout the world on a single screen. It is to simplify the search & select process.

  222. [quote=’aumnamonarayana’ pid=’88528′ dateline=’1504515268′]
    New technology being deployed at Tata Sky. Hope for availability of more varied content on their network in next few weeks. I am sensing that many In-House channels will be added alongwith other satellite channels. Still it’s a mystery why they changed LCN of Kids Cinema channel & News 9 so many days back. I guess addition plan was scheduled earlier but got delayed.

    which type technology?
    when satellite migration start?

  224. New SD feed of History TV18 has been added, it has replaced the old downscaled HD feed of this channel. Now both SD & HD feeds are different & are fresh .

  225. Dino bro what about star world premiere hd is it same as star world ?

  226. Finally after months of ignoring this mistake, 3 days back Tata Sky has added Hindi Entertainment Mosaic on Tata Sky Plus HD STB. Now it can be accessed on LCN 102.

  227. Any news about TS adding new channels or Satellite migration ???

  228. I think Star is thinking to rebrand Channel V to Star brand Bollywood music channel soon

  229. First take that Nat Geo Music away nobody watches Nat Geo Music

  230. Has “Channel V” again turned into a Youth Channel. From today onwards it’s showing old shows & movies. No music throughout the day.

    Twitter & Facebook page of Channel V India has not been updated since June 21. It seems like this channel will shut down/revamp soon. They failed both as a music & a youth channel. Repetition of old programs will continue till new plan is executed. No mention of Channel V on Star India website too.

    Sad that such an iconic brand from the 90’s is in such a dismal state bcoz of improper planning & implementation.

  231. I guess Sony Yay will also get shutdown Soon no new shows looks like Sony again failed in kids category well good luck Sony I guess October they will try last with few more Desi shows

  232. Looks like star world premiere hd getting shutdown

  233. Even Star India showing same EPG information for both Star World HD & Star World Premiere HD w.e.f. 1st September. One more HD channel bites the dust. 7-8 HD channels have shut down in last 12 months itself.

    http://www.startv.com/tv-guide/

  234. Looks like either Star World Premiere HD or Star World HD is shutting down w.e.f. 1st September. Just check the EPG of both these channels starting at 12 AM on September 1 , SW HS is having no information while SWP HD is showing programs of SW HD. Most probably it’s either wrong EPG or may be SW HD will shut down & SWP HD will continue in its place.

  235. Okay bhai. Most likely on the new satellite 11550 H will be the home TP

    No signal across all transponders. Anyone facing this issue right now?
    [/quote]no…working fine

  240. No signal across all transponders. Anyone facing this issue right now?

  241. If channel wants to become popular they will pay Tata Sky but why Tata Sky don’t want 9xo ?

  242. It’s a bad news as with takeover of 9X Media by Zee & this growing rivalry now re-addition of 9XO on Tata Sky will become really difficult.

    MJ bro, any changes in the test slots present across transponders? Please get some news regarding the grand addition from your sources. Same request to justforfun bro too. Thanks

  243. Sadly star haves all cricket so we will pay

  244. Okay. Thanks MJ bhai. Satellite par activity chaahe naa ho par Zee aur Star ki ladaai dobaara shuru hone ki poori sambhaavnaa hai. Read this http://www.indiantelevision.com/television/tv-channels/sports/jawahar-goel-raises-alarm-of-emerging-star-cricket-monopoly-170823

  245. fully cloudy.. cant see anything happening on satellite  :rolleyes: :rolleyes:   (just kidding)…  there is not much happening in scan .. but hope your views and expectations come true soon.

  246. MJ , Justforfun Bro any further update about activation of new satellite? Also what are they planning to add on LCN 300 & 301? Had it been for mosaic then they would have added it long back. I am sensing something which will be really grand. Please get more details. MJ bhai please do check for some activities in the 83° east orbit. Thanks

  247. ISRO will provide new Frequency to Ts ok.. testing already going on Ts tech center as per info ..

  248. software update

  249. Justforfun bro, i am still waiting for your response regarding more details about new satellite that Tata Sky will migrate to from Insat 4A.

    MJ bro, any new frequencies found in current orbit of Tata Sky? Please check for some activities on GSat 19 . Thanks

    Okay bhai. Tata Sky people are acting strange these days, not adding Hindi Entertainment Mosaic for HD+ users & on the other hand not removing this promo channel from our STB. Seems like there are no checks & systems in place or there is some callousness.
    [/quote]as per amantan bro gsat19 not have ku band after long discussion…..

    [/quote]

    really?
    which new satellite?

  261. Yes migration starting from September 2,12,22,25,29 🙂 5 Batches Scheduled .. News is right Aumnamonarayan bro .

  262. Exclusive Update

    Migration of channels from Insat 4A to new satellite will start shortly. Shifting of channels will happen in batches.

  263. Again black volume bar coming on many channels. Background work is on before addition of new channels.

  264. LCN’s of Kids Cinema & News 9 much in advance, looks like some grand plan is in the offering. Hope MJ & justforfun bro break the mega news soon.

    But why LCN 131 is not being removed? Are they still in Janamashtami flavor?

  265. Wait a little more, new channels + new transponders will be activated very soon.

    Also post shutdown of Life OK HD, SWP SD or SMS SD or V HD might be launched.

  266. They’re delaying knowingly 🙁

  267. Why is Tata Sky not adding star sports first ?

  268. Why is Tata Sky not removing ” Janamashtami Special” promo channel from LCN 131? 2 days have passed by but this banner channel is still present with “Sports Program” mentioned in EPG

  269. More Transponders = More Channels = More Subscribers = More Money (from both carriage channels & subscribers) = More Profit.

  270. arey bhai.. aur TP mat add karo
    24 tps scan karne mein hi dimaag kharab ho raha hai

  271. Another round of additions from 18th to 20th August

  272. Why wion getting shutdown ?

  273. Till now DD Audio not added on Sony TEN 1 HD & Sony TEN Golf HD, also Telugu Audio not added on Nat Geo Wild SD/HD. Tata Sky is quick in adding new channels but hopeless when making such small changes are involved.

  274. High possibility of “Sarv Dharam Sangam” Channel getting added back as its 2 sister channels namely Pratinidhi TV (using Yo TV licence) & News India 24×7 have been added couple of days back.

    Also Wion channel may also shut down in the next few months.

  275. [quote=’aumnamonarayana’ pid=’87138′ dateline=’1502823862′]
    As per update received from sources, new transponders will be activated by end of this month after new software rollout is completed across all STB models.

  286. Yep Tata Sky is best dth all international channels will try to come on Tata Sky as Tata Sky have many niche customers like me who hate Indian content and prefers foreign content I’m the best example

  287. Wow Free Me Great 😉

  288. Just got hold of this article while surfing on the internet. It says that DW TV did not pay carriage fee to Tata Sky. Interesting!
    http://www.thehoot.org/media-watch/media-business/deutsche-welle-seeks-more-visibility-9240

  289. Yes, they do have Hindi Movies Mini pack.

    Update
    Navgrah Channel will be readded on Tata Sky platform very shortly. Negotiations are on to renew the carriage agreement.

  290. does Tatasky have Hindi movies Mini pack?  CC says no such pack, but i have seen its available to 99,199 and 229 packs

  291. Edits was done by Sony Yay don’t they have any work rather than trolling Anime fans I solved everything and fixed it

  292. Now all Animax pages have started posting it it’s becoming hot topic I told sony Yay to correct it don’t hurt our emotions

  302. Wow! Justforfun bro this is great news. I have been waiting for these 2 channels on Tata Sky since last 10 years. Finally i will be able to see local news from Delhi-NCR on Total TV & Dilli Aaj Tak. Looking forward to Business Today too. Bro, please get more information about next date for additions & channels part of that batch. I am super excited specially for FTA Hindi Movie Channels & International Channels.

  303. @Mj bro do you know which channel India Today Group launching ? is testing of any new channel from this group started in C band ?

    About this deal you guys can confirm the same from this various social networking sites of this Group about addition in Ts 🙂

  304. Good News 🙂

    DH Exclusive Update :-

    Finally Ts done the deal with 2 very old news channels of India Today Group

    Delhi Aaj Tak
    Aaj Tak TeZ

    Both channels deal now signed by both the parties n the channels coming in next phase of additions of Ts along with a new Business/Infotech channel from this group . This deal has happened because of this new channel which is going to launch in next month by India Today Group 🙂

  305. Picture quality is pathetic on almost all channels now. There is too much blackishness in picture. They are not even correcting it. I am surely discontinuing subscription post expiry of validity.

  306. Savdhaan India will continue as it is now 🙂

  307. Oh no it’s sad news people will miss Savdhan India

  308. So star may get use its license to Launch SS Telugu/Second 🙂

  309. Update – Life OK HD is shutting down post launch of Star Bharat.

    New Hindi Movie Channels will be added in next batch of addition.

  310. oh 🙁   dino can confirm if he is watching this channel right now.. :shy: :shy:

  311. Picture & Audio Quality of almost all channels is horrible since last 10 days. I guess some new technician has been employed at Tata Sky Uplinking Centre & he has messed up all things.

  312. anyone notice….
    & tv hd picture blurred….

  313. In which Tp its currently testing bro ? Btwn its new one not yet launched by Ts for customers.

  314. it is showing in Testing i think i posted last month also about this.

  315. Where bro ?? Available in STB now ?

  316. hindi movies mosiac is working since long i think

    [align=center][attachment=1221][/align]

  317. Now I can watch my favourite content for free so not gonna recharge Tata Sky

    [attachment=1218]

  318. Zee ETC resolution has been changed by Tatasky from 16:9-4:3 its looking very bad from last week but they’re not changing it 🙁

  319. Has anyone noticed that there is too much blackishness in picture across all channels on Tata Sky. Similar thing happened in Hathway few years back when they added their watermark logo on many channels. I guess some new technician has joined Tata Sky & messed up video & audio settings. Even in Vh1 SD audio peak settings have not been adjusted properly hence audio quality is very poor.

  320. Its relaunched again ?

  321. Tata Sky 100% 1 rupees ka chocolate ya phir ek rupya dega

  326. When is 11 th anniversary of ts bro

    Sent from my Z45 Nova+ using Tapatalk

  327. I don’t think they will give anything or they may add stupid carriage fee channels which are useless and can’t even retain on Tata Sky

  328. Anything special being rolled out on occasion of 11th Anniversary celebrations of Tata Sky?

  329. Pathetic service only south people are getting benefits I haven’t recharged my TS yet let’s see what offers they will give me

  330. Another thing which i noticed was that on Star Plus, Samachar Plus, Ndtv Profit-Prime, BTVi , DD Kissan they were running a scroll informing about “Uttam Kumar Movie Festival” on Tata Sky Bangla Cinema @ Rs.3/month , right now they have removed the scroll but setting has still not been corrected hence black volume bar is still coming on these channels. May be they were doing a test run or the technician was drunk at night 🙂

  331. Now not gonna recharge Tata Sky unless they give me good offer till then I will use Sony Liv Jio TV & Hotstar on my TV
    Already connected Animax on my TV

  332. Seems like some new technician has taken over the helm of affairs at Tata Sky broadcast centre & screwed up settings. Picture is coming too blackish in dark scenes, audio is going up & down on HD Channels having fake DD+ audio. Looks like this technician has come from hathway as previously when hathway added its own logo on channels then similar picture darkness issue cropped up.

    Also i am waiting for 1st August & hope that some big news will be revealed to us.

  333. Yesterday night there was some technical glitch at Tata Sky broadcast center. Till 11:55 PM Showcase HD 5 was not showing next day’s EPG & it was to be removed at 12 AM, also “Life” movie was scheduled to air on Showcase 3 & 4 SD/HD w.e.f. Friday but cancelled at last minute. Also all the “+1” channels except Zee TV +1 SD/HD & Zee Cinema +1 SD/HD faced blackout , for sometime it was running same programs as their counterpart without 1 hour delay , after few months mins. picture was stuck & later it had blank screen. This got corrected after few hours. I guess due to these issues there is a change in planned activity.

  334. [quote=’aumnamonarayana’ pid=’84948′ dateline=’1501125755′]
    Showcase HD5 will be removed at midnight. Expecting addition of new channels too tomorrow.
    [/quote]

    removed midnight?

  335. Now Tata Sky airing Indian Feed of “The QYOU”. It blurs cleavage of girls in bikinis, displays warnings regarding smoking & alcohol consumption.

    Few days back there was an article that QYOU has tied up with Ericsson to adopt a technology so that they can customise feed for each region & now it has been implemented.

    Nowadays even regular desi channels show more vulgar & obscene content than local feed of International Channels like FTV India

  336. Showcase HD5 will be removed at midnight. Expecting addition of new channels too tomorrow.

  337. Test Service 2752 on 11050 V frequency is showing Star Gold Select SD Version

  338. I am getting Tata Sky Bollywood Premiere without subscribing to it. Currently Dhamaka Pack is active on my account. Any other Tata Sky user having similar experience? Is there some special offer going on?

  339. This satellite was launched as backup link for data across India. So mostly their beams will be within India. 

    You are confused between bandwidth and band range. I am talking about bandwidth and you are talking about band range. All tuners have specified bandwidth and I think it is around 45mhz for satellite tuners. Not sure.

  340. Amatan bro, as i have stated earlier too that Pan India or mau be Pan Sub-Continent will be one of the 8 beams of this satellite. It’s not like you are thinking that all 8 beams will be region specific within India. May be it will also have South East Asia & other such beams too. Spot beam means covering a particular area, that area can be a country, a particular region within the country or also a part of the sub-continent. Haven’t you seen the various beams of SES 8, ST 2 etc., they have different beams to service different regions. I hope now your confusion is cleared. Just wait a little more, very soon we will get information regarding footprints of all the 8 beams of this satellite.

    Also regarding your query that STB can’t tune more than 500 Mhz of bandwidth, currently all Tata Sky STB’s are receiving signals from all the 24 tp’s they are using & total bandwidth is more than 800 mhz. STB just needs desired parts, RAM, software which provides the overall layout & settings to receive the signals. STB is just a device for decoding the signals, it will be able to support all the functions which it has been designed for. Bsndwidth is not associated with STB, Transponders have bandwidth capacity so as to receive data of certain size & send the same data to the receiver. It’s essentially like a power grid stores all the electricity & sends it to us, if we have a 60 W bulb then it will give only illuminate according to the standard set for it so basically bulb is not having any storing capacity of power & it will just receive power & give only that much light as it has been designated for.

  341. How it is wrong statement?

    Advantage of that satellite itself is due to spot beam.

    Eg.11090 V spot beam for Delhi region and same frequency spot beam for Mumbai region like that 7-8 beams covering various parts of India. So now with one frequency they managed to serve individual data to 7 regions.

    If this is given to Tatasky which will then put on pan India. So how can Mumbai or Delhi can use the same frequency?

  342. None of the satellite is sent to space so that it can be used by a specific user. Tata Sky will use frequencies on Pan India beam while others users will use the same frequencies on different beams. This is the advantage if being a powerful satellite & using this new technology of multiple frequency beams. You are trying to say that if Tata Sky uses pan india beam then others will be left with nothing to use & this is a totally wrong statement.

  343. [color=#333333][size=small]”I am just saying that Tata Sky will have more frequencies to lease even on Pan India beam. Also same frequencies will be used on different beams by other users. Benefit for Tata Sky is not the different beams on GSat 19 but more frequencies which will be on offer.”[/size][/color]

    [color=#333333][size=small]If that satellite is assigned to Tatasky then what is the use of sending a satellite with new technology meant as backbone for connectivity?  ISRO cannot benefit from different beams simply because Tatasky will need whole India coverage so there is no question of using the same frequency to another spot beam within India!!!! I don’t know why many expect that what ever goes at 83 degrees is expected to server Rotten Tatas.[/size][/color]

    [color=#333333][size=small]Where did you read that STB has bandwidth?[/size][/color]

    [color=#333333][size=small]All tuners have bandwidth according to its use. A stb cannot simply tune 500mhz block. [/size][/color]

  344. Amantan bhai, who is saying that Tata Sky will use all the bandwidth? I am just saying that Tata Sky will have more frequencies to lease even on Pan India beam. Also same frequencies will be used on different beams by other users. Benefit for Tata Sky is not the different beams on GSat 19 but more frequencies which will be on offer. Regarding STB having limited bandwidth, well as far as i know STB can tune into any frequency within the Ku band range & there is no issue of limited bandwidth. STB has RAM power which imoroves the overall functionality of the STB as it is basically the memory power of the device, it’s function is to receive signals & relay it. Where did you read that STB has bandwidth?

  345. TataSky TP 11090 V 32720 has a spectrum 39.263 MHz and 64.816 Mbit/s. If suppose they increase the specturm to 600mhz or 700mhz imagine the possible Mbits. Will the stb handle that much? That satellite is great only if spot beams are used. If whole India beam is used then it is just like any other satellite.

    We cannot simply increase the spectrum (mhz) as stbs have limited bandwidth. More than that it can’t tune. Even in that limited bandwidth symbol rate limit is there.

  346. http://techpp.com/2017/07/19/airtel-tata-tele-merger-analysis/
    Let us first start with Tata Sky. The company is not publicly listed but according to this post on Television Post, turned in a profit in 2016. But it is not just the profit that matters here. Tata Sky is known to have one of the best subscriber bases in the country owing to its focus on urban areas. Tata Sky also has the highest number of HD and SD channels in the country, thanks in part to a dispute with ISRO which has meant that Tata Sky now has access to 828 MHz of satellite spectrum, while Dish TV (the second largest) hovers at around 648 MHz. Tata Sky is in a far better position than Airtel Digital TV. It has more subscribers, a better quality subscriber and also more spectrum. Being able to acquire Tata Sky would, therefore, be a real plus for Airtel. It would allow Airtel to become the undisputed leader in the DTH segment now that Videocon and Dish are also merging.

  347. Its simple, if earlier 11010 H gave 100 mhz bandwidth, now it will give 600 or 700 Mhz through this technology. This is what i want to say.Not only Tata Sky will get benefit as it will lease many frequencies (much more than what current individual ISRO satellites offer) but others will also lease the same frequencies on different beams as per their needs & requirements. Once we know how many frequencies are present on this satellite then we will be able to know the real advantage. But one thing is for sure that combination of very powerful satellite + use of multiple beam technology will make GSat 19 is a game changer. Let’s wait for official confirmation from Tata Sky or ISRO regarding this. I am really sorry for wrongly interpreting your comments earlier. 🙂

  348. I long back itself told about this satellite and even now when you get time read my posts. I am telling bandwidth can be used 6-7 times when used on different beams. It means multiplication and not division. As it is multiplication, how will tatasky benefit from it? One Delhi beam and another AP beam means what use for them? They will use India beam so they don’t get this 6-7 satellite advantage. This is what I am telling ever since it was launched. You were ridiculing me that “ISRO may not have understood as they used that Transponder word” now you are telling the same which I told long back.

    https://www.dthhelp.net/GSat-19-has-been-placed-at-83%C2%B0-east?pid=79835#pid79835

    nandu posted this news and I guess same link
    https://www.dthhelp.net/No-transponders-on-Gsat-19

  349. Amatan you are misunderstanding the information. Earlier satellites of ISRO had limited frequencies & it had a single beam so if an operator leased a TP then it was used to provide service to the entire region. In GSat 19 a single frequency can be used multiple times through different beams so if there is 11050 V then it can be used across 8 different beams. This does not mean that bandwidth ia getting divided across 8 beams, i guess you are interpreting it like this.
    Infact being a powerful satellite & using this new technology , GSat 19 will provide 6 to 7 times more bandwidth than an usual satellite. This is what makes it stand apart. I hope now your doubts has been cleared.

  350. Lets see an example

    Tatasky starts using a frequency 11790 V 32700. Now this frequency has to cover whole India or part of India? If it covers whole India then that “equal to 6-7” goes off. 

    They had even given examples like Govt departments. Suppose a state government wants to link with its branches in all parts of that state, then they can use it and ISRO at the same time can allocate the same frequency to some other state which doesn’t overlap this foot print.

    So 11790 V will give a different scan result for some one in Punjab and different result for some one in Tamil Nadu. So those 6 beams in theory will can be used on the same frequency.

  351. I disagree with you Amatan bro. Having different beams does not mean that frequencies cannot be used for pan india transmission. What the article states is that this is the most powerful indigenous satellite & it has 8 different beams. So if a user leases bandwidth on this satellite & wants to only provide service in a selected zone then it is now possible similarly if Tata Sky wants to have pan india beam then they have that option too. Now 6-7 times data can be streamed as each frequency can be used in multiple beams. Most foreign satellites provide this option since a long time. Using the word “transponder” is not that Important as ultimately frequencies serve the same purpose. ISRO has not associated the word “transponder” with this satellite as it did not think that this was right thing to do. This is a whole new technology which has been used first time by ISRO, if there is a single frequency & it can be used for 8 different beams then one may say that it is equal to 8 transponders but ISRO has refrained from taking that stance & instead simply used the term “multiple beam frequencies” to differentiate & highlight this technology.

  352. I already told why it is not possible. I will paste the lines from this article (the link given by you). So then it will mean some one in Delhi will be having different channels and some one in Chennai will be having different channels. Bandwidth is more because same is used in other region as well. May be they can do like North regional pack for north beam etc,. but that won’t go down well as there are viewers spread all around India for any given channel.

    [color=#333333][size=large][font=proxima-regular1, roboto, arial, sans-serif]In fact, the word ‘transponder’ will not be associated with this new bird in the sky, says Misra.[/font][/size][/color]

    [color=#333333][size=large][font=proxima-regular1, roboto, arial, sans-serif]Instead for the first time, Isro is using a whole new way beaming data down using multiple frequency beams and hence it is dubbed “a high through put satellite”.[/font][/size][/color]

    [color=#333333][size=large][font=proxima-regular1, roboto, arial, sans-serif]Misra explains that earlier the entire country was lighted with a single beam that meant all users had to share the same bandwidth, with the new suite of technologies on-board GSAT-19, it has 8 beams so that data can be pumped down in much higher capacities.[/font][/size][/color]

    [color=#333333][size=large][font=proxima-regular1, roboto, arial, sans-serif]Almost 6-7 times more data can be beamed down. GSAT-19 is a fore-runner for the technologies that Isro seeks to unleash on the country.[/font][/size][/color]

  353. Nilu bro, read this article for more details
    https://www.google.co.in/amp/m.timesofindia.com/india/isros-gsat-19-11-satellites-a-revolution-in-communications/amp_articleshow/58983052.cms

    All i can say is that Tata Sky will have a golden run if this indeed happens as there is lots of bandwidth available on this satellite.

  354. hope for the best…..ss add on service channel?

  355. Wait n Watch bro. GSat 19 is having multi beam based frequencies & it can easily be used by Tata Sky. Wait for next few days , things will become clear by then.

    Also Star Sports Add On might be added again very soon.

    Ok bhai. As i have been saying since last few weeks , new transponders will be added soon & Insat 4A will either be used along with it till it expires or will be retired as soon as new Tp’s are activated. Most probably GSat 19 will be used, waiting for confirmation from leader & MJ bro soon. Wish Mr. Bhat was still active in this forum.

  359. Nilu bro, any updates regarding changes happening in Tata Sky post July 20. Please try & get some information. I believe Showcase HD5 will be removed on Friday, new channels will be added & may be some changes will happen on HD Channel policy front.

  360. Has anyone noticed that dialogues are not audible on Cineplex HD when background music is running. In normal situation too , dialogues are having very low sound. Has Tata Sky screwed up the DD audio by not configuring it properly?

  361. Good Morning Brothers,

    A question popped in my mind that why Tata Sky does not give Music Pack, Knowledge Pack & Sports Pack (barring TEN 1 ) under Jingalala Saturday Offer? Long ago they used to give Sports 2 Pack under this offer but later stopped that too. It would have benefitted lot of subscribers who are on lower base packs like My 99 or Dhamaka.

  362. Look how greedy Tata Sky is fighting against TRAI Tariff Order. I guess we should never expect any pro people step by them. So happy that Videocon d2h , Dish TV & Cable Federation is supporting TRAI in this. Really hope that Tata Sky loses this case & we get the “Real” freedom to choose alongwith paying less. Open loot needs to end.

  363. not sure about Android Box.. as there is no update regarding it
    normally tatasky will announce it in advance and get advertised properly

  364. Yes bhai, i am also expecting some major changes & announcements post July 20

    Seems like Tata Sky has decided to discontinue “Catch Up TV” & “Ready to View” service. New videos were not getting downloaded on HD STB since last few weeks & now they have stopped providing new content even under the “Catch Up TV” section of VOD menu in HD DVR.

  367. Want to know how Tata Sky is looting us. Just compare the A-La-Carte prices of Dish TV with that of Tata Sky. Your eyes will get bigger out of shock & surprise. You will feel super angry , furious & cheated.

    Just click on the below link to check the A-La-Carte prices of channels in Dish TV & after that go to Tata Sky “Mack My Pack” section but before that please control your emotions & feelings as you might want to bang your head after seeing how Tata Sky is openly Overcharging & forcing us to opt for bundled packages or expensive add on packs so that they can protect their own interests by getting extra revenue, get incentives from broadcasters by fulfilling various criteria & also make the broadcasters happy by increasing reach of their channel which ultimately grows their TRP thus bringing in more moolah.
    https://www.dishtv.in/Pages/DIY/Pic-By-Chanel.aspx

    High time that we all get together & force them to bring the prices down. I am making a list of all the things which need immediate course correction & will send a detailed mail to Tata Sky CEO desk very shortly. Request all of you also to make your opinion heard.

  368. What is Tata Sky trying to tell us through the information listed below. Even asked Cust Care if there is some special offer being rolled out but they have no information regarding the same. Any explanation from our esteemed members is most welcome. I am unable to understand the context behind this.

  369. It’s a very old news bro. TS Bangla Cinema’s price was reduced few months back

  370. price decrease

  371. I am quite sure that Insat 4A is close to retiring. New satellite will be used by Tata Sky , this shift is likely to happen in next 10-15 days

  372. 11090 H frequency signals are low now

  373. Right now they are busy shuffling channels on transponders. I have noticed that all the channels of a particular genre are being packed together in a single transponder. For example, they are shifting all the hindi movie channels to 11550 H, Music + Infotainment to 11010 H. Don’t know the reason for this. Let’s wait n watch. Expecting something post July 20. May be we will get the news of new satellite & more transponders soon.

  374. Hope Aisa ho jae Airtel & Tata Sky merger
    busy in watching Animax Dino Bro between any good channels like Euro News Asia coming ?

  375. Has the delay in addition of new channels got anything to do with the talks of merger going on between Airtel & Tata? Dish & Videocon have witnessed similar stagnation due to ongoing merger process. I do hope that this is not the case & things become clear in next few days or weeks. If Airtel overtakes Tata Sky then it will be good as their prices are somewhat economical but only issue is that they add channels at their own leisurely pace, specially the HD ones.

  376. What happened bhailog? “Mere Sawaalon ka Jawaab do, do naaaa” . Why is everyone so silent on this forum since last few days. Join the discussion, put forward your views, share more information. Come on, tumhe apne mobile aur internet connection ki kasam, aao chun chun ke har data istemaal karo nahi toh kasam Jio ki main saare free plans band karaa doonga. 🙂

  379. Toonami availability on Cable & DTH

  380. Why has Tata Sky still not added Telugu audio feed on Nat Geo Wild. All other operators included this audio feed as soon as it was available from broadcaster end. Also DD audio has not been added till now on Ten Golf HD. Is Tata Sky acting careless in this department?

  381. Is Tata Sky providing Star Sports 1 HD free to all subscribers on their Live TV mobile app? I am able to watch this channel on the app even though it’s not part of my current subscription.

  382. Channels will be impacted tonight by intermittent outage

  383. Exclusive updates nilu bro. Let’s see what’s the outcome of upgradation activity, new channels, shuffling of channels on transponders or may be addition of new TP.

  384. acting adda…

  385. maintenance activity

  386. Ibaadat (LCN 786) & Islamic Devotional (LCN 787) will removed at 12 AM

  387. Testing of new channels with proper names might start today or may be more test slots will also be added. Next bunch of addition happening very soon.

  388. Tata Sky social media team is saying that 9XO is being shut down
    https://mobile.twitter.com/TataSky/status/882293234663280640

  389. Yes Bro yesterday tried it

  390. Has anyone noticed that if we send a message to Tata Sky on Facebook then an automated robot is replying instead of any human. Try it.

  391. Only one channel had profit due to anime’s that was Cartoon Network
    I still remember Cartoon Network was no.1 channel just because anime’s like Dragon Ball Z Digimon etc

  392. Give it off I’m not interested better leave this Country is best option or get unlimited internet & keep watching anime’s
    Animax even never advertise in Asia
    Stupid reason for shutdown of Animax was Sony India didn’t get any profits

    I already invested in unlimited internet
    Now I don’t care I will just keep on pirating anime’s & watch I’ll legally and government you can’t do anything [emoji14] [emoji14]

  393. It’s not their fault bro. Viewership of Anime content is very limited in the overall market size of TV households in India. Broadcasters can’t be blamed for taking down anime & looking for other alternatives which can help get eyeballs & generate revenues to sustain the running of the channel without creating any negative impact on their balance sheet. Toonami, Animax & Sonic tried their best to offer Anime to the target audience but advertisers didn’t show interest in their channels owing to low TRP. Similar thing happened for MTV Indies, it had been launched to promote independent talent but it faced tough times & had to be turned into a Bollywood Music Channel to get the desired return on investment.

    Only thing you & others can do is to write to Animax/Sony through various mediums requesting them to provide Anime content as a service channel on various platforms.

  394. Sony Yay is the first channel in history to take bad words before it’s launch from Indian otakus
    Indian otaku base is very angry on that channel and hate that channel from bottom of their heart
    And They blocked Indian otakus and deleted all comments and trying to take away freedom of speech
    Really a very bad channel giving bad inspiration
    It will get shutdown Soon I believe because such attitude can never win anyone’s heart

    I hate Desi stuff

  398. More bad news is there, Colors Infinity SD/HD might shut down in the next few days or weeks. Checked its schedule & from Monday onwards it is showing only repeats of old shows & regular programming is being discontinued similar to what happens when a channel is nearing its end.

    Another update is that July onwards SD & HD feeds of Nat Geo & Fox Life will have different schedules except for few important shows which will be simulcast.

    This year more n more channels will be shutdown. Wait n Watch!

  399. I am getting signal for this tp as usual.

  400. 11050 V TP has been switched off now by Tata Sky. No signal on it.

  402. Yes awesome pack 🙂 It includes all sports channels 🙂

  403. Oh, i forgot. It includes all the sports channels too.

  404. oh, that is really very good pack .. just missing Sports but covered all others

  405. It includes all Hindi Entertainment/Movies channels, all the national hindi news channels, All English Movies/News Channeis, All the Hindi/English Music Channels, All the Kids Channels , All the Infotainment & Lifestyle channels, Spiritual channels, Shopping Channels plus 2 Free Regional Packs. All at just Rs. 290/month.

  406. can you list those channels here?

  407. Has anyone noticed that Tata Sky has knowingly not listed “Kayika Sadhya” base pack on its website as after seeing the price & content of that pack all the subscribers from rest of india will feel cheated. At just Rs. 290/month, Kayika Sadhya pack has been custom made for Kerala subscribers & it has so many good channels across genres that a regular subscriber will clearly notice how Tata Sky is overcharging them . Tata Sky is fearful of the bashing they will face hence they have kept this base pack as a secret. In Dhamaal Mix Pack we are not getting even half the channels as compared to what this Kayika Sadhya pack offers. Hope subscribers wake up & force Tata Sky to come with similar packs for everyone.

  408. Shuffling of channels have started on various Tp’s. Reminds me of days when Tata Sky had bandwidth shortage. Toonami, Channel Win being shifted to 11130 H & Disney Channel , Disney XD moving to 11050 H.

  409. exclusive share otaku bro

  410. New channel coming soon

  411. Channel addition time is very close. Red Recording Icon is again glowing on my HD DVR without anything scheduled for recording at this time.

  419. And what movies it will air? mostly might be from Star library.. which we are bored off seeing from Star Utsav Movies, Movies Ok, star gold, star gold select

  420. According to my sources, Tata Sky will soon launch SVOD Movie Channels, you can pay for monthly subscription & enjoy non-stop movies. There might be separate channels for old & new bollywood movies & hollywood movies. Much like what cable operators provide but here we have to pay for it

  421. Why has Tata Sky removed Fox Life, Nat Geo People, Travel XP, Food Food, Living Foodz from Dhamaal Mix base pack on their website? Anyone having this pack please confirm if you are able to watch these channels.

  422. hope it is removed.. Dhamaka pack looks better

  423. Why has Tata Sky removed Dhoom Pack from its website today onwards? Has it been discontinued?

  424. Fortunately for me this has not happened even once. 🙂

  425.

  429. Rahul bhai, i am really sorry. Nothing like that. Waise i am getting 80-90% signal quality on Tata Sky Welcome (LCN 99) & Ch. 100 Platinum (LCN 100). But the worrying thing is about Sadhna TV & Aaj Tak where i am getting 0% & 20% signal quality respectively. Though at 0% too i am getting the channel. 🙂

  430. Looks like Aumnarayan Bro doesnt like me, thats why he hasnt responded to my post 😛

  431. Tata Sky online chat team told me yesterday that my account has been entitled with free service visit & relocation, only if there is some material or part replacement then applicable charges will be communicated & levied upon me. 🙂

  432. OK bhai. No issues. Thanks

  433. currently tatasky STB is not connected, that is why unable to give you those detaills.

  439. Tata Sky Bollywood Premiere is a blessing in disguise for us. Earlier we had to pay Rs. 100 or more to watch a new movie which was valid for 24 hours but now we can watch it for only Rs. 2.50 & unsubscribe the channel next day. Super Deal. Hope they keep airing good movies every Friday. 🙂

  440. Has “Punjab De Rang” service channel been included in Dhoom Pack or Punjabi Regional Pack? I am getting it without subscribing to it. I have checked my account details & it has not been added separately. Nilu bhai, MJ Bro can you please confirm from your sources about this. If there are any more changes then do let me know about that too. Thanks.

  441. With launch of SGS SD happening soon, Tata Sky will shortly change LCN of SGS HD or Cineplex HD or all the channels present from LCN 341 to 345 will be moved one position ahead i.e. from 342 to 346. Keep an eye on it guys.

  442. Has anyone noticed that picture quality of MTV Beats SD is blurry on Tata Sky. May be problem with decoder of this channel which has been given to Tata Sky, few years back even Discovery Channel, Disney Channel, Disney XD had this issue. Hope they resolve this soon as picture is looking bad.

  443. Tata Sky has introduced “Hindi Movies Mini Pack” few days back. It is available on mytatasky.com

  444. EPG popping up automatically. Any changes on transponders?

  445. Another game being played by Tata Sky

    Tata Sky is selling SD STB at a higher MRP than HD STB since a long time. Their excuse is that we are doing this so that subscribers are able to get better audio-visual experience.

    Reality is that this might be another trick from their box, tomorrow when most subscribers have HD STB then they might make it compulsory for us to subscribe to HD Pack.

    Beware guys! Remember Airtel tried this policy once, don’t fall into this trap & let Tata Sky taste successful in their backdoor plan (if this is their strategy). Choose wisely!

  446. MTV Beats SD is getting added on Tata Sky Live TV (Mobile App) Platform tomorrow so most probably it will be added on STB too within next few days.

  447. I agree with MJ786 Bro, There us professionalism in LCO/MSO side also, You cannot always blame broadcasters.

    Broadcasters are not responsible for providing poor picture quality to MSO. I compared DTH and my previous digital cable tv PQ and DTH was ahead. 

    Broadcasters are also not responsible for the signal cuts in cable, and long down time. Also slow or no additions of new channels and less HD channels.

    Now this is not same with all MSO.

  448. Actually Broadcsters don’t want Digital Cable to be a viable alternative for viewers. They are trying​ every trick in the book to make it unsuccessful so that majority shifts to DTH & they can continue exploiting us. Cable Operators are being forced to pay more for entering into deals with broadcasters to transmit their channels. The biggest irony is that there is no set rule for setting a price & as a result these broadcasters have a free hand to charge whatever they think is right from any distributor/operator. This is the reason why TRAI Tariff Order is being met with such resistance by broadcasters, they know it well that if it comes into implementation then their powers will be restricted. There is a larger game at play behind the curtains but i am sure that at the end these dirty tricks will one day be exposed & they will have to adhere to policies which bring transparency in their day to day working.

  449. The difference between Digital Cable and DTH is customer can watch main important channels without any tension on DTH. but on digital tv just before a big series there will remove the package.
    Here Asianet digital users are not able to watch Star Sports 1 channel since ICC championship started.. this is only the worst aspect of Digital TV… instead of Star sports 1 they are being provide star sports 1 Tamil 🙂 🙂

  450. Aumnarayanbro,

    Even i had the same views towards Digital Cable. For many years i tought Digital Cable was better than DTH. I started using Digital Cable since 2009, before that i was using Analog Cable.

    Till 2015 their services were good, there were no Signal issues and interruptions. The PQ was OK, but channel Additions were slow. i used to pay Rs 300 for some 350 Channels (25HD). The big issues/problems started in 2016.

    In 2016, there was a major technical breakdown and channels were removed. This was restored after some weeks. Then again Star package, Zee Package, colors package, etc always displayed message like MSO has  payment due, and subsequently these channels were blocked by broadcaster due to non payment. Then the signal issues started, everyday for many hours there were signal interruptions. Signals used to go and comeback after hours. This continued for months. 

    Now, who would like to continue with such a service provider ??? So many issues. I made up my mind and i switched to DTH. Now i am happy. The prices are high, but the quality and the service speaks. Now i dont get issues like channels goes off air, removal of channels, signal issues, etc. 

    Now Signal issues as i said are only in very heavy rain with winds, other wise no interruptions.

  451. and one of the most stupid package making from them comes to notice easily when a customer who has Multi connection and wants just basic regional channels which cost 160-170rs for primary.. but for Multi TV he has to pay 240rs  and still get same channels which cost 160rs .. They should instead make better package like discount of 50% or 75% for multi tv like that.

  452. That’s the reason cable setopbox are better they are cheap & offer all channels

  453. Showcase HD5 – LCN 405 may be removed soon as its schedule has been left blank like Showcase 5 – LCN 435 which was dropped few weeks back.
    http://www.tatasky.com/wps/portal/TataSky/services/showcase

  454. They have kept the prices of base packs & add on packs high for a simple reason that firstly SD subscribers will have to pay more & for HD subscribers they have made it mandatory to subscribe to corresponding SD Channel + have HD Access Fee to view HD channels so this is called “Dono haath mein ghee shakkar”, it’s their strategy to loot from both ends. If you tell them this then they will say that we do offer “Make My Pack” service which is another scheme to cheat us as A-La-Carte prices are so high that even if you take few chs then the total amount exceeds the price of base package. In India, everyone is milking the common man & if someone raises voice their mouth is shut by hook or crook. Only rich & powerful enjoy in India today, rest like us are made to pay for their well-being. This is the truth.

  455. Tatasky packs are costly as always.

  456. Compared the base packs of Airtel, Videocon & Tata Sky. Surprisingly Airtel which was once the most expensive , it is now actually very affordable. Almost all the channels offered by Tata Sky in Ultra Pack are now available in New Mega Pack of Airtel that too at much lower price (Rs. 477 to be precise). Infact even Videocon is now more expensive than Airtel. Even Add On & A-La-Carte chs cost less in Airtel than on Tata Sky platform. Considering shifting to either Airtel or Digital Cable as Tata Sky does not fit in my limited budget anymore. Still in two minds as Cable has added advantage of more local chs + no charges for any fault rectification or replacement of any hardware + monthly packs cost less than even Airte & above all no issue in bad weather.

  457. Some changes will happen across some Star Network channels post June 15 or Champions Trophy. Intetestingly on Star India website, Star World HD is not only showing a new logo but EPG is also different from SD feed. First I thought that as logo is similar to Star World Asia hence by mistake EPG would also be of that channel but after investigating in detail I have noticed that EPG of Star World HD on Star India website & program schedule of Star World Asia do not match. Let’s wait n watch.

    Secondly Baby TV & Baby TV HD are showing different EPG on Star India website. Though here i think the only difference is that on one only block names have been featured while on the other feed Details of the programs that are transmitted in that block have been listed in detail. But the major thing which raises doubt with this regard is the fact that why both these feeds have been mentioned separately when just like Nat Geo People & Nat Geo​ Music, Baby TV too does not have any SD feed & in EPG listing the details of the former two have not been bifurcated like they have done for the latter.

    Your opinions ate welcome on this.

  458. Never ever in my life i would do that unless Tata Sky reduces the A-La-Carte prices of channels. They have intentionally kept these prices inflated so that we are forced to opt for base package or pay absurd amount for taking a standalone channel. Agreeing to their corrupt terms will further embolden their spirit & they will design + implement more policies like this. Na baba na, aami ae golti na korbi 🙂

  459. 🙂

    instead of HD access fee you could have taken Star sports HD 1 ala carte Add ON for 1 day na.

    it would have been less cost as well for a day..  I think we can now take any ADD ON for day and drop next day. :s

  460. I am currently subscribed to Dhamaaka 199 pack, can’t afford paying high charges for base packs containing Star Sports channels. Had DD HD been there then i would have taken HD Access Fee for a day & enjoyed the match. I have decided to discontinue Tata Sky subscription once my account balance runs out , will connect it back only when they give me a good discount offer. Have had enough of their exorbitant prices.

  461. Was star sports 1, Hindi hd not showing in HD that u missed dd HD

  462. If DD HD was still available on Tata Sky then we would have been able to enjoy today’s match in HD 🙁

  463. TRAI’s new broadcasting norms could lower your monthly cable/DTH bill by 20-30%
    Cable and DTH operators’ bills will be cheaper according to the new pricing structure by TRAI.
    Moneycontrol News
    The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India’s (TRAI’s) new broadcasting and cable services pricing structure released in March could help subscribers save 20-30 percent on their monthly cable or direct-to-home (DTH) bills.
    Here are the details of the new norms, exclusive of taxes on a per month basis.
    > As per the new norms, broadcasters (cable and DTH operators) will have to declare the MRP of a-la-carte (individual) pay channels per month to the subscribers.
    > The first bouquet of up to 100 SD (Standard Definition) channels will have to be charged a maximum of Rs 130. Currently, subscribers pay Rs 200-30o.
    > For more than 100 channels, the subscriber can avail packages — 25 channels per package — paying an additional amount not exceeding Rs 20.
    > The broadcasters can offer bouquets (a bundle of pay channels) calculating the individual MRPs of the channels and giving a minimum discount of 85 percent.
    > The price of a channel in the bouquet can not exceed Rs 19 thereby making it affordable. A customer wanting to subscribe to that channel, will have to pay separately.
    With price limitations in place, the expensive bundling offers by DTH operators cease to exist , giving subscribers an upper hand.
    The subscribers can get a variety of channels at discounted prices. The Tariff Order has given broadcaster time till May to comply with the order.

  464. Euro News will be added very soon on Tata Sky platform.

  465. Nilu bro, but these Add On HD chs have not been added till now. May be backend end had updated the EPG of these channels hence this thing happened

  467. EPG popping up automatically. Anything new added on TP’s?

  468. MJ786 bro,

    Ok, i have seen that Star Gold, Sony Max and Zee Cinema work as they are in home TP, and that TP has very good signal levels in normal conditions. 

    Pls tell me how the signal levels can be made better???

    The installer put some used Multi LNB and said that he didnt have new LNB. he assured that it will work. After a month i checked the signal levels thats in december, and it was 60% and some channels like zee news had 0% quality. It still was working tough. 

    I asked TS to send a technician and another technician was sent to fix, and he changed the LNB skew and increased the quality. And the quality was 90%. And zee news quality 20%. 

    Every now and then the signal drops for some hours even in normal conditions. But gets back to normal after some hours. 

    Also i have noticed that the Signal levels on both STB are not same at a point of time. Like when signal drops on STB 1 the levels on STB 2 are normal. Is this nomal. 

    Is this because of LNB, and if i can in anyways get a better LNB and get a resolution for this issue

  469. May be Dish TV received the communication regarding this earlier from Star India & added with correct name since beginning.

  470. Yes i also think so becoz even other DTH like sun direct, videocon also added like that… But surprised to see Dishtv and Real VU DTH from bangladesh add it with proper name which is now being used Star Sports 1 Hindi

  471. Hmm, strange that they realised this so late or may be Star made this change later after launching the channels bcoz as far as i remember they were called SS Hindi 1 SD/HD , SS Tamil 1 earlier even in press release.

  472. now tatasky corrected epg names of star sports channels properly

    * Updated *
    —————————————-
    1) Star Sports 1 Hindi  (StarSports1 Hindi @ Rs 60 pm) 11170, H, 32720 8PSK Channel Name(“Star Sports Hindi 1″=>”Star Sports 1 Hindi”)Provider(“StarSports Hindi1 @ Rs 60 pm”=>”StarSports1 Hindi @ Rs 60 pm”)
    2) Star Sports 1 Tamil  (SS One Tamil @ Rs 60 pm) 11550, H, 32720 8PSK Channel Name(“Star Sports Tamil 1″=>”Star Sports 1 Tamil”)
    3) Star Sports 1 HD Hindi  (HDStarSports 1Hindi @ Rs 75 pm) 11630, H, 32720 8PSK Channel Name(“Star Sports Hindi 1 HD”=>”Star Sports 1 HD Hindi”)

  473. it’s sad it started with my favourite channel Animax 🙁
    I’m expecting Sony Yay also in that list go to hell you Yay : angry

  474. Now Zindagi is shutting down w.e.f. July 1. Expecting same for WB, Ten Golf HD, Discovery Turbo, Big Magic, NDTV Good Times , Neo Sports, Neo Prime, News X, Wion, BTVi, Toonami soon. Already ID, FX, Star Movies Action is shutting down, may be same will happen for Movies OK soon. 2017 is the year for closing of channels & it was bound to happen as there were too many channels launched without any research on consumer viewing preference or pattern. Many more to follow include in HD genre as their revenue is not enough to sustain operations.

    Hi, 

    Rains have started and yesterday it rained for 10 hours non stop. In between it was heavy and then moderate, kept changing.
    TS signals were 40-60% in moderate rains, and i was able to watch TV. But as soon as it started raining very heavily the signal quality came down to 0-20% and then remained 0 till the time the very heavy rains continued. Signals were back once it became moderate rains.

    The Signal Levels mentioned above are of Ch No. 99. 

    Normal signal levels are: 80-90% 

    Is there any way signals can be improved and TS to work even in very heavy rain conditions.

    [/quote]

    @ Rahul, this is common now during rainy season… sometimes without Rain and thick clouds also we tend to loose signals for a brief time until it passes.

    To improve signals you can try to get little bigger size dish as currently just 65cm dishes are being provided. and what is the type of LNB you are using?

    Normal signal levels can also be increased few more %.

    One more thing when such thing happen again, you turn to channels like Star Sports 1, Star sports hindi 1 , Hungama.. you can be able to watch these hopefully

  476. maybe possible that they might move

  477. Is Tata Sky shifting Ibaadat Channel to LCN 848?
    https://mobile.twitter.com/ibaadatChannel/status/870512877127385088

  478. I have two HD STB, and both of the had almost similar signal levels (5% difference between them). Now after the rains yesterday, the differenr between the signal levels have increased and one STB shows 80% quality and other one shows 60% for the same channel

  513. yep that’s reason I will make sure Sony yay will fail and it will be revenge for Animax anyway anime fans can pirate their shows on internet so no one needs Animax on Sony Liv first place

  514. LCN of Star Gold Select HD will be changed very soon.

    Spandan bro, within next few months, ISRO will launch a satellite on current orbit of Tata Sky.

    Animax bro, every channel has viewership but it has to be sizeable enough so that an operator is forced to carry it due to public pressure or else channel needs to pay carriage to be placed on a platform. Indian market is not a friendly one for broadcasters, there are many factors which need to be in place for success of a channel.

  515. Animax have demand and people are crying because they don’t want crap shows we otakus only had one Channel

  516. But aumnamo bhai i dont think isro have any satellite ready at same orbit as Insat4A.

  517. Animax had its viewer bro first day Sony yay page was spammed by Animax India fans
    distribution was issue as it was Japanese Channel airing in Japanese
    Naruto was brought by Animax specially for India really distribution sucks

  518. That article is giving wrong information. Tata Sky had agreed to use GSat 10 only if it was offered as an additional satellite to them by ISRO, previously they declined the offer by ISRO to use GSat 10 as replacement of Insat 4A. Tata Sky had waited for this satellite since 2010 to get extra transponders, it was ISRO which delayed the launch.

    After Insat 4A, ISRO will provide a new satellite to Tata Sky on same orbit

  519. Aumnamo bhai i just read article abt two satellites used by TataSky coz Insat4A did not die so after Insat4A dies may be in a year or two what would TataSky will do as they will just have 12Tp’s from Gsat10 then?????

  520. Also major issue with Animax was that no one was ready to distribute the channel through their platform. It was not present on majority of networks. Either SPNI didn’t try hard to convince the operators or if they did then operators didn’t find their explanation to be interesting enough to bring any incentive to them. Also there was hardly any demand from viewer end. So SPNI was caught in a fix from both ends hence they took the wise decision to shut down. They can’t pump in crores for distribution (carriage fee) without any returns. If operators were ready to carry Animax on complimentary basis then this would not have happened

  521. Aumnamo bhai i just read article abt two satellites used by TataSky coz Insat4A did not die so after Insat4A dies may be in a year or two what would TataSky will do as they will just have 12Tp’s from Gsat10 then??

  522. That’s their business decision bro . Over a long period even providing international feed will bring unnecessary debt on balance sheet. It needs to be supported by minimal revenue to sustain.

    Anyways look how Star India is busy in lowering the prices of their channels. FX HD at Rs. 2, SWP HD at Rs. 5. Lol! Premium channel ka itnaa buraa haal ho gaya ab, time time ki baat hai.
    http://www.startv.com/address_platform_1Sep2017.aspx

  523. then why can’t Spni provide International feed of Animax
    Animax was very popular Anime Channel among Anime fans reason for shutting down Animax I don’t get it
    it was the only Anime Channel

  524. Wait n Watch. Either they will start Indian Feed of these channels or shut down or use their licence for some other channel. Right now there is no major loss as simply Asian Feed is being provided to us, Star India is doing no investment except spending a few bucks on distribution that too minimal as these channels are clubbed in regular bouquet.

  525. what about NAT Geo people NAT Geo Music & baby TV they are in loss also

  526. Separate FB pages have been started on May 4 for Star Sports Select SD/HD channels. Let’s see what’s in store. Expecting major announcement from Star India in June.

  527. Also i think licence of Star Movies Action will be used for Star World Premiere SD. FX HD might be used for Star Movies Select SD or may be V HD.

  528. Seems like Movies OK will be revamped to Star Gold Select SD from May 28. FB & Twitter pagr of Movies OK converted into Star Gold Select.

    Star India shutting down many channels to revamp or relaunch in new avatar.

  529. so that is why they started to loot again and became greedy

  530. High possibility that Vaa Moviea, Mubu TV , Maha Movie, Maha Cartoon TV, Manoranjan TV, Manoranjan Movies, Housefull Movies, RT Movies will be added shortly.

  531. EPG added. Not getting dropped.

  532. yes ….removed midnight

  533. Is Multiplex (LCN 352) being removed at midnight. It’s not displaying EPG post 12 AM

  538. all things will be clear in 5 pm…..addition confirm only d sport side…

  539. Still no official confirmation from Tata Sky end about addition of new channels in the coming days. I hope that it doesn’t get postponed. Fingers crossed.

    Nilu Bro, did you try enquiring with them? Any luck getting some information? Just few hours left but strangely this time Tata Sky has chosen to remain silent, normally they give such details in advance.

  540. D sport hd

  541. Eagerly waiting for addition of Naaptol Green on Tata Sky Platform.

    Waise, i must applaud Tata Sky for not being involved in the practice of adding channeis on dual LCN , more specifically with respect to shopping channels. I guess Tata Sky is the only distribution platform which has refrained from this practice, all other DTH & Cable Operators regularly indulge in this game. May be Tata Sky does not want to annoy its premium clientele by adopting this strategy.

  542. Some Showcase Channels might be removed on Thursday or Friday.

  543. BFlix Movies will be revamped soon.

  544. New Channel Addition will most probably happen between 25th & 28th May. Tata Sky will test with original names 1 or 2 days prior to addition.

  545. Till now Tata Sky has not corrected picture aspect ratio of &Pictures. Requested them on Twitter too but they chose not to respond. What to do guys?

  546. 4k banner is back[emoji323]

  547. Has anyone noticed that & Pictures is being telecasted in wrong picture aspect ratio by Tata Sky. Picture us squeezed from top & bottom.

  553. tata sky 4k banner channel now blank

  554. Dear Nilesh, we are in constant touch with their team and are pushing for the inclusion of DSport on their platform. We hope to get it done shortly. We would be announcing it officially once the activation is completed. We thank you for your interest in DSport.

  555. Whats special in D Sports channel? r they telecast which is not available in existing bunch of Sports channels ?

  556. [quote=’aumnamonarayana’ pid=’76924′ dateline=’1495091505′]
    DSport confirmed to me on FB though message that their channel will be up on Tata Sky by end of this month. Hurrray!

    P.S. – I had asked them after seeing a post in another forum where a screenshot mentioned that DSport has made this claim to a user.

    P.S. – I had asked them after seeing a post in another forum where a screenshot mentioned that DSport has made this claim to a user.

  558. One question which is regularly cropping up in my mind is that how come Tata Sky displayed so much generosity by alloting separate LCN for each language feed of different kids channels. It’s costs crores to sign a deal for carrying a channel on a particular LCN & in this case Tata Sky simply gave such a large scale visibility to each of these channels. I wish they did this for Infotainment Channels too as most people still don’t know how to change language or should i say even unaware that certain channels are available in multiple audio feeds.

    Schedule of this channel removed from website too

    Nilu Bhai, please get intouch with Tata Sky & let us know the reason for this. Thanks 🙂

  563. aumnamonarayana

    MJ bhai, Tata Sky is having so many test channels on various Tp’s. Can you please list as to what is being aired on each of these slots. Thanks 🙂

  564. aumnamonarayana

    Signal very low on 11590 V TP. Check chs like 9XO, Sadhna TV, Sudarshan News.

  565. Will there be a change in schedule of Showcase Channels tomorrow or are they being removed? Asking as EPG is not available for any of these channels tomorrow onwards.

  566. [quote=’aumnamonarayana’ pid=’75159′ dateline=’1493833153′]
    I still think that they will be discontinued shortly or rebranded or their licence will be used for some new Star Network Channel & till then they will keep airing stale content. Look at Star World Premiere , since Monday it has stopped showing latest shows & telecasting old shows. If this was just a social media consolidation then why is there is change is content strategy, surely there is more to it than what meets the eye. Wait n Watch soon we will get an announcement about this from Star India. They can’t continue to broadcast loss making channels, advertisers have shown no interest in these channels hence their operation cost is more than the revenue.

    Same like Animax but thing was Animax was airing new shows

  567. aumnamonarayana

    From today onwards, Tata Sky is providing EPG Information in advance for only next 2 days. Earlier the same was available for next 3 days.

  569. Sad to see international channels are going down im very sad because my favourite Animax got shut down

  570. aumnamonarayana

    Picture Quality of Star World Premiere HD is now substandard, surely not at par with HD Quality. Seems like Star India is running it like a Test Channel now. Waiting for hear news of Shutdown or Revamp of SWP HD, FX HD. Star Movies Action, Investigation Discovery, Discovery Turbo might soon join the list.

  571. Bad News – I think Star World Premiere HD & FX India are shutting down in next few days/weeks. Social Media pages of both channels are not active & renamed as Star World. Also now both channels airing old content. Let’s wait n watch. Hope that they are revamped but not shut down.

  572. aumnamonarayana

    Yes, satyai Ray Special on TS Bangla Cinema. I thought that this would be a new service when they replaced Floater Channel on 10970 V with Satyajit Ray Special Channel but now it’s clear that it’s just a promo channel

  573. aumnamonarayana

    Actually I don’t like their current CEO, he is too much arrogant. Anyways let’s wait & watch. They will themselves learn a lesson & course correct after introspection. Now we have many options, Tata Sky can’t create a monopoly. Let them raise prices even once more & they will see the negative ripple effect. It will be a massive downfall.

    Remember what these Operators/Broadcasters said about digitisation, they said viewers will get option to choose & pay for what they like & look what Mr. Nagpal says “We can’t expect customers to choose channels as per their choice”. Such hypocrisy. All these greedy people want is to take away all our freedom , force us to pay more & above all justify their corrupt practices without anyone keeping a check over it.

    Isse kehte hai haath pasaar ke sab maal lootnaa aur manmaani karna

  574. They never respect. Earlier insulted people that they care about top end of pyramid and not others. Suddenly they reduced rate and increased channels. But again they are going back to their earlier stand. People will simply throw it out and may migrate to other dths. Once they leave a DTH due to high prices chances of them coming back will take years.

  575. I am quite sure that they will lose the case easily if TRAI presents a strong case by highlighting their wrong doings. Enough of their organised loot . Subscribers also need to teach them a lesson, shift to Cable TV. I am so happy that they are feeling the pinch from DD Free Dish, Cable TV & OTT Platforms. Boycott them till they learn to respect our hard earned money.

  576. As said earlier this TataSky is one of most greediest DTH operators in the world. For everything they cry wolf. 20% margin is lowly! Also they tell per minute call costs them Rs.7 😀  Shameful. If they are not happy with 20% margin let them close and go to hell. Why sitting and spoiling everyone? Because of this stupid DTH prices don’t come down. If they manage to get stay then prices will remain high.

  577. Now Tata Sky filing case against TRAI Tariff Order. Hope they lose. They are saying that subscribers pay lowest for TV content in India & their profits are marginal. What about millions Broadcsters earn thru ads & Operators thru carriage fee plus ads? Also Mr. CEO says that you can’t expect subscribers to opt for channels thru apps. LOL! So why doesn’t Tata Sky shut down online payment, daily recharge, remove packs/add ons/A-La-Carte system if they think that we are so incompetent. Reality is that they are worried that post TRAI Tariff order implementation, they won’t be able to charge us Rs.10 for FTA chs or Rs. 75-100 for single HD channel which in reality is a tactic to force us to take packages. Also Mr. CEO says that why should a broadcster pay to carry a channel on their Platform. Kya? Is Tata Sky so generous? TRAI should do an audit of their account & they will know whether or not they charge carriage fee. What about public notices in newspapers mentioning that a channel is being removed for non payment of dues, what does this mean? Is this donation which broadcasters make to Tata Sky for charitable work. All flawed arguments

  578. Here is the good news we have been waiting for, Star India’s plea quashed by Madras High Court. Now TRAi tariff order will be implemented from May 3. Prices for base packs, add on packs & A-La-Carte Channels will decrease & this may also well be one of the reason why Tata Sky delayed channel addition because now everything will have to be restructured for complying with new regulations.

  579. Sent a mail today to Indiacast DTH Team Head Mr. Kapil Suri to enquire about the reason for non-availability of MTV Beats SD on Tata Sky platform. Hopefully will receive a response soon. In 2015 I had written to them requesting for addition of History TV18 HD on Tata Sky Platform & only after that they took desired action. Strangely at that time their social media team wasn’t even aware at that point that Tata Sky was not carrying the HD Version of their channel & only after i gave a detailed explanation to them that they realised the massive blunder. Within few weeks of interacting with them, History TV18 HD was added on Tata Sky Platform, hope same happens this time for MTV Beats SD.

  580. Why has Tata Sky removed the option to add A-La-Carte SD Channels from mytatasky.com?

  581. Technical & Contractual Work is on & hence the delay. Wait a little more bhai 🙂

  582. Wat about new channel additions bro, any info

    Sent from my Z45 Nova+ using Tapatalk

  583. Just hating the fact that Tara Sky upscales original DD 5.1 audio of most HD channels to their fake DD+ 7.1 audio. Due to this audio levels are going up & down on channels like Zee TV HD+1, Zee Cafe HD etc. Same used to happen on SS HD1 earlier as vocals shifted to from one rear speaker to another instead of coming through central channel on home theater. Please someone write to Mr. Nagpal to correct this unnecessarily self created issue by Tata Sky

  584. Now Tata Sky will have just 71 HD channels (excluding In-House HD channels or Showcase HD channels). Currently Total HD count is 80, Out of these 2 are getting dropped namely Naaptol HD & Da Vinci Learning HD, 5 are +1 HD channels so they are basically just for count sake & then there is News X HD & Baby TV HD which just air SD content hence are fake HD channels. So all in all real HD count will stand at 71. Hope that Insight HD , MTV HD+ & DSport HD are added soon.

  585. Specials audio channel removed from Tata Sky Music

  586. I think some work is on at the earth station & when the technical work + contractual work is completed then new channeis will be rolled out. Making these comments on the basis of regular disruptions in transmission of channels during night time + response received from some broadcasters

  587. Watching “The Weekly with Charlie Pickering” on Australia Plus & the guest says “F#@k Off” during interaction , surprise is that it was not censored. Foreign Channels openly flouting MIB rules

  588. Waiting for list :-):-):-):-):-)bro

  597. Dilli Aaj Tak, Aaj Tak Tez, Total TV coming very soon on Tata Sky platform

  598. Some Showcase Channels might be removed tonight

  599. Testing of new channels expected to start this weekend or early next week. Looking forward to updates from MJ & Leader bro

  600. Is “Tata Sky World Series” Channel being removed tomorrow? Gomorrah was scheduled to air from March 18-April 19 & from tomorrow a new show should have been introduced but as i can see that EPG is not available on this channel tomorrow onwards. Normally Tata Sky updates EPG of next 3 days in advance but being a service channel I thought it must not have been done bcoz they were unsure which show to telecast next , now though removal is seeming more eminent.

  601. It’s an issue at their IVR end. Had it been a mobile operator issue then even the call won’t have gone through.

  602. did you try from some other operator?

  603. What’s wrong with “My Offer” Toll Free Number? Earlier it was getting disconnected after i pressed 1 to know the offers for which my account is eligible & now strangely “after” the ring goes through it says ‘Please check the number you have dialled”. Is this scheme a hoax by Tata Sky or is there malfunction in their system? What’s your experience guys? Is it working for you right now?

  604. Good News

    Insight HD will be added on Tata Sky Platform very very soon.

  605. Another surprise round the corner. Recording Icon again glowing on my HD DVR without anything being recorded. This happens when Tata Sky team is doing some backend work & mostly Channel Addition follows within few days.

  606. EPG popped up automatically a minute back. Anything added or changed on any TP?

  607. Yes, Tata Sky needs to take some concrete steps to correct this wrong policy. It’s good that in Tata Sky one does not have to pay separately for add on packs or A-La-Carte Channels on secondary connection & all channels added on an ID are accessible by just paying Multi TV subscription but it is totally unjustified to make a lower package subscriber pay the same for Multi TV as what a higher package subscriber is paying. Even in Videocon or Airtel , monthly subscription for secondary connection varies according to different base packs

  608. I have seen one case where customer was having 164rs Pack.. 99+regional 65.. and for Multi connection he was paying 240rs 😉

  609. Why is there Flat Monthly Subscription for Multi TV irrespective of the base pack active on primary connection? Just like Tata Sky provides different variants of HD Access Fee for different base packages similarly shouldn’t Multi TV charges be less for lower level base packages. If a Subscriber is paying Rs. 285/month for Dhamaal Mix Pack which is active on primary STB then why should Multi TV charges be Rs. 240? It should be less than Rs. 150.

    Request all of you to send this feedback to Tata Sky through different mediums. Hope they will take required steps for addressing this issue. Previously too i had sent them many important suggestions & i am happy to say that they not only gave positive response but worked on it & implemented the policy very soon.

  610. Bhai, web series is a new concept in digital video streaming world. In this format, a show or a mini series is created which has limited episodes & is aired on digital platforms. You can go to YouTube or any OTT app & there you csn see many such web series, Tata Sky is working on a same model for its Live TV App to counter rivals.

    This means addition of new channels will continue & hopefully we will get to see many new channels along with this.

  616. Videocon highest growth :s :s   something fishy

  617. Wait n Watch bhai. Dish/Videocon has strong presence in rural/semi-urban areas since a long time plus they offer high margins to dealers for selling their products. Tata Sky never focused on these areas up until 2015. Tata Sky provided less channels at high price hence it will take time for them to convey the massive change that has happened since them. You know how difficult it is to change perception once it has been inbuilt for a long period. I am sure being the marketing genius that team tata sky is, they will come with a plan to tackle this. DD Free Dish is also a big challenge for them in such regions . Now as i told even in cities people are moving to OTT or Digital Cable as its more affordable & provides the content they want & Jio is also posing a danger. Some big changes will happen otherwise they will lose subscribers from every segment. Really tough situation.

  618. Their plan to catch cable subscribers failed?

  619. According to this latest report of TRAI, DTH Subscriber Base grew by just 1.2℅ (7.5 Lakh) in the period from October 1 , 2016 to December 31, 2016.

    Dish TV, Airtel Digital TV & Videocon d2h. together contributed to 6.33 lakh new additions. Videocon had highest growth as it added 2.5 lakh new subscribers, Airtel added 1.83 Lakh while Dish TV added 2 lakh.

    This means biggest looser was Tata Sky. People still think Tata Sky is costly. Let’s see how they fight this perception.

    Source – http://www.indiantelevision.com/dth/dth-operator/active-dth-subscriber-growth-subdued-in-oct-dec16-quarter-170410

  620. Total TV getting removed from Videocon d2h platform on April 12, if this happens then there is a high chance that it will make its way on Tata Sky platform alongwith Dilli Aaj Tak in next few days

  621. Can tata sky launch Animax on Demand service its available on sing tel & few operators in asia hoping ts will add it

    See here Animax on demand its having some exclusive on demand content which is never aired on Animax [emoji28] [emoji28]

  622. All the BBC On Demand content removed (barring 1 show) from Tata Sky On Demand Service. May be deal validity is over or Tata Sky is planning to launch a BBC HD service channel

  623. Let’s wait n watch what happens next. Previously too addition of some channels have been delayed but i guess it has never happened that Tata Sky cancelled the announced addition. Hope that these channels are added soon or it would be even better if some more channels are added to the list along with them in the next round.

  624. Very well said dino bro & they have done nothing good just making fun of other forums also god will definitely punish them [emoji41] [emoji41] [emoji41] [emoji106]

  625. This is the reason why it is said that think multiple times before showing others down & poking fun at anyone.

    Some people in another forum were challenging others that “Where are the people that said that Sun HD channels will remain exclusive to Sun Direct & Tata Sky will not add them? Where have they hidden when they have nothing to say?” Now look how God has given them a befitting reply.

    Always remain humble, do good deeds & let God give the desired results. Even if others do wrong or behave badly still one should never stoop down to their level, just forgive & stay happy. When overconfidence creeps in an individual & they start to act like being superior to others then a time comes when situations break that wrong misconception.

    Always remember that we are humans & a very small part of this whole world. No one can be perfect but we should always be open to learn & improve at every curve of this journey.

    Have a great day Ahead! 🙂

  626. Yes still not added in scan.. slowly hopes decreasing .. after all it’s sun network channels.. maybe some. Issues.. let’s see till 10am

  627. 3 HD Channels still not added in scan. I believe their addition has been postponed

  628. Keep an eye on the changes you observe post the succesful updation of the software. This might be linked to future plans about new satellite/transponders & settings will be added in the STB. If anyone is having these STB models then do check for the TP List in the installation menu.

  629. good update [emoji106]

  630. 5 SD Channels now added in Scan

    * New *

    1) SKYSTAR  () 11010, V, 32720  58% –
