Hello friends

I am from Mumbai planning to purchase TATA sky instead of Dish TV. As per my knowledge TATA sky is good compare to DishTV. What do you think?

TATA SKY isko laga dala toh life jingalala

My vote for Dish TV because my friend told me if you don't pay (refill) monthly rent then you will not able to view Pay channel means Star, Zee, SONY etc , but you can view Free channels like DD, & Some news channels. TATA does not provide this facility.

Dish TV is best for me.

Tata sky is good !!!

idea Re: Tata Sky vs Dish TV

I was using tata sky in my rented house. Now i have changed my home. I requested to tata sky for transfer my connection/dish to my new home on 26th october, 2008 and today it is 6th Nov 2008 but no one
care abut my request and i am still waiting for response.

On 26th it was scheduled for 31st Oct, later on tata sky guys rescheduled it for 2nd November by themself without confirming from me, then they rescheduled for 4th and today it was rescheduled for today 2 pm but it is now 7.00 pm and no one came. I called customer care on 3rd and spent Rs. 25 on mobile and they confirmed me that it will be done in 1-2 days and today it is 3rd day.. What the hell is it?
They are charging me on daily basis. They are deducting my balance on daily basis even I am not using their services because of them or delayed from their end.

Re: Tata Sky vs Dish TV

This is really a worse service from Tata Sky. Tata's telecom service already sucks and has furious reviews from users across India. And now this is again in their Tata Sky. I think Tata need to review their customer service department coz its so disgusting.

I have one trick for you to get solution on such problems. Just warn them politely that you will approach Consumer Court and file a complaint against this matter. This will kick their brains and service will be provided as early as possible, most probably.

This trick worked for me many times against many giant companies. If they still dont care, you can indeed file a complaint. But so far, this situation never came to me, coz just a dreaded warning would do the trick

Re: Tata Sky vs Dish TV

I have been using Dish TV for a few years now. Earlier it was the only product in town and had an edge. However, over the years , the service has gone down. There are many customer service issues and the services havn't improved for long. So i would ask you to think hard before your buy Dish TV.

Re: Tata Sky vs Dish TV

from what i have compared tata sky is much better than dish tv. It scores over dish tv in almost all the areas, user interface, quality of product, customer care.

i recently came aross this article ,

Apparently in chandigarh, a dish tv user named Bhardwaj instituted a complaint in the consumer court that he didn't receive any programme on his TV since May, 2008, despite his monthly subscription being valid till July.

He had purchased Dish TV in April, 2005, and also subscribed to the dish maxi package by depositing Rs 300 per month.

Altough assured great quality and service, he complained about signals being always erratic and each visit of the mechanic entailed another expenditure of Rs 200.
The forum also asked the company to immediately correct the alignment of the complainant's dish antenna so that he received uninterrupted services,
Notices were issued to the dealer and the company, which in its reply stated, "Paras Sales Corporation is only an authorised agent for selling of subscription packs of Dish TV

Dear Alexisus and other friends
This is to bring to your notice in the deficiencies in service provision by tatasky despite their tall claims and glossy advt.
I have a pending complaint with tatasky for 1 month now and despite repeated reminders nothing has been done that would solve my complaint. tatasky has jetix channel on ch no 603 and toon disney on ch no 605. I locked the jetix channel to prevent my 6 yr old from watching moronic cartoons that are shown on the channel but to my horror he was able to view the channel by simply pressing the back button from ch 605. My horrific experience has been compounded by the curt behaviour of their call centre executives, who are more interested in selling add on packages rather than putting me across to their seniors / tech "support" , or failing in arranging a call back from their team leader. Whenever they have called back, it is only to apologise for delay and promising another call back so that on paper they can show the company that a call was indeed made. without solving the problem the tech support team has written back to say that the problem has been solved or I have refused attendance of my complaint. When last heard their software team was trying to solve the problem and assured resolution within 3 days , and that was 10 days ago. Therefore, choose at your own peril

Tata Sky

I took TATA Sky connection. Its service is awful. Problem starts with the physical laying of the cable. The email (help@tatasky.com) does not reply to any query. In fact they have the cheek to CLOSE your problem without giving a reason!The tollfree number brings you close to people who know less than what you already know. The web page gives you the 'facilities' ,obviously those which fetch revenue to Tatasky like online payment adding a package etc. If you want to deactivate any package then you will have to wait till the completion of a month -you cannot register automatic cancellation of a package on a future date! I took Star cricket package for the T20 matches which were over in a fortnight I had to wait until the 30 days were over to cancel on thei call centers, they donot take the request to block & tell you to call on a specific day (if you dont, you will be continued with the charges & TAta has a policy of debiting on a daily basis). help@tatasky.com replies with their standard one page mail giving all the call center numbers but without answering the question! The query gives an automatic reply that the query will get their attention & after a time you will find it CLOSED. Sports channels are expensive.With T20, Wimbledon etc going on simultaneously, you will have to register & pay seperately for a min of 30m days. If it rains you donot have the sinals.We do miss out on the climax scenes of movies or the slog over of matches.Tata sky gives a damn for your suggestions. They donot provide you the phone numbers/email ids of the next level for escalation. The bosses on top are probably in the dark , basking on glory of the name "TATA" group! I never expected services of TATASKY to be bad.

If however you can afford to take an annual package for Rs 5000/- it probably is better .

to conclude, I would say that the Local Cablewallah is the best bet!
