Dish TV India / Non transmission of free channels!

1 India Review updated:

I would like to bring to the kind notice of the board that I have purchased dish t.v. about one and half years back by paying Rs.3990/ and opted for Z TV package. From 20th June 07 suddenly telecast of all the channels stopped without any information. I immediately contacted the dishtv, they informed me to pay Rs 600/ for telecast of Free to Air channels. I told them that free to air channels are free and why are you asking money they responded very badly and told me that our policy is being changed. Since I can not see free to air channels Dish TV STB and antenna , I made request to take back STB and antenna and refund my money Rs 2499/- as given in writing by Dish TV to refund when ever we want to surrender after five years. Since the services are very poor and asking money for free to air channels I want to surrender it immediately. They have told me that they will not refund the money even after five years. For me STB and antenna is a waste. Can any one help me to suggest , how to stop the cheating activities of Dish TV in India?? How to complain to government of India for charging the money for free to air channels?

Dish TV India - Most shoddy after sales service!
India

My dish Tv is not working for past three days. The complaint was lodged vide comp. no. 6611402. The co. has not responded back despite my repeated calls to the company and the dealer. This is height of poor service... The co. can win an award in this category... Most Shoddy after sales service.

India

I renewed the package to include SUN packages. I paid the entire amount for the Maxi package even after receiving the money they simply dont activate SUN Packages. The Monopoly of DISH TV India must be stopped.

Dear Mr. Farooq,

I have also paid money through ITZ Card for activation of sun package and called up customer care and to my surprise it was activated in 5 min only. That might be the case with you.. I think you need to call customer care and told them the details of your payments for sun package and request them for activation it will take only 5-10 min to activate that.

I am totally dis-satisfied with the services provided by dish TV.
Till the time it was installed there is problem in the network and despite repeated calls from the last 8 days, no action has been taken so far. SO this may b a WARNING for those who are planning to buy a dist TV in near future.

I would like to bring to the kind notice of the board that I have purchased dish t.v. about 6 months back by paying Rs.4200/ and opted for Z TV package. From 20th Jan 08 suddenly telecast of all the channels stopped without any information. I immediately contacted the dishtv, they informed me to pay Rs 100/ for telecast of Free to Air channels.

Last year in March, I purchased DiSH TV antenna and setup box (VC number: 01504284679#8 ), with 6 months' Maxi offer.
After 6 months I was able to see the free-to-air channels at no extra cost, as the distributor promised me for free-to-air channels at no extra cost. Last 2-3 months it was stopped showing the free-to-air channels. When I asked the dish tv distributor here, they ask for rent for free-channels too. As per your regulations and India Govt. regulation, one should not charge additonal cost for free-to-air channel.

Could you please look into the matter so that we get free-to-air channel at no extra cost. My VC number: 01504284679#8.

Dishtv is way better then Tata sky;

1. Dishtv has maximum number of channels 240 in total.
2. Very economical packages as compared with tata sky.
3. Very economical offers.
4. Good after sales service.
5. Economical and More number of ala-carte packs and gives you a freedom to choose and pay for what you watch.
6. Very good Active Services: Like Active ICICI AND bHAKTI aCTIVE.
7. More games for children to enjoy at free of cost. where as active services are paid in tatasky.
