Tata Sky / duping people
I got Tata Sky about a year ago. At the time of installing tata sky the set top box cost me Rs. 4, 000. It was providing all channels at Rs. 300 per month which was almost the same rate that my cable guy was giving me. I was so happy because the picture and sound quality was very good and there were no issues of broadcast being interrupted because of faulty cable lines, or no electricity at the cable guy's place or any such issues. Even when I did not had electricity at my home Tata Sky showed me all the channels. I was very happy as it was a welcome relief from the cable people's monopoly.
But after some time Tata sky out of nowhere stopped showing certain channels. At first there were just a few channels that I did not even watched so I was not concerned. But then slowly it started removing all almost all the channels even those channels that I liked. I felt cheated. They had promised me that I will be getting all the channels but I am not. Everyone must have been aware of the ESPN-Star and Tata sky feud as well (Tata sky had stopped telecasting ESPN-Star just before Asia cup even though ESPN-Star had not raised their rates). ESPN-Star came out with a huge ad in all leading newspapers that they have not raised their rates and Tata sky is asking people to pay for it. But at that time Tata sky gave in and started telecasting the channels. But now just before the India Sri Lanka series they have stopped the telecast of Ten Sports and are asking money from us to show that channel to us.
It is a matter of helplessness for me because as I have paid 4, 000 Rs. for its set top box, I cant get rid of it. I have to bear it. Its a clear cut case of duping people. They are not showing the new channel Colors either. They stop the telecast of sports channel just before a major series and of other channels as and when they like. Although the cable guy in my area is showing all these channels. I am seriously thinking about switching back to cable.
It is my request as well as recommendation to all people who are thinking of getting Tata Sky installed. PLEASE DON'T. No one should get Tata Sky installed.
