installation not done

Hi i have get a dish tv true hd connection voucher as i have bought a samsung 40inch lcd. They told they provide the connection at the cost of 750/-. I have call customer centre and register the voucher number. They promised me that they will do the installtion procedure with in 72 hours. No body as communicated me with in 72 hours so i called them again they told me that they will provide me the connection within 24 hours. How ever these promise was proved vain again. I called them again they told me that my complaint was closed as i refused to give rs 750/-, although no such communication was made by me and i am very much eager to give that money for dish tv true hd. How ever they told me that they will escalate the back office for puting wrong information and provide the connection with in 24 hours. Till now no body has communicated with me. Please suggest. Is this the proper behaviour of the company who claim to be n0:1 in dth service?

    Dishtv is disgusting...
    First time the installer forgot to install LNB monoblock. I have contacted customer care.The technician came yesterday and install it and told us all channels will be appeared within 2hours.

    But after 3hrs the channel no reduced. It is now 216 instead of 300.The most of the channels shows error 301 STB not properly install.

    In stb info few boxes showing red instead of green.
    Guys please help, I am really frustrated with this kind of service.

    Absolutely true saying .I too encountered the same complaint.My dishtv was installed on 11th March but I was not able to watch HD channels since the LNB was to be changed to monobloc LNB.I made 23 complaints but no body turned to sort out the problem.Ultimately time and again begging it was chnged after 1month 7 days.My rechrge for that period was not even refunded.
    Simply I can see Dish Tv is bunch of crooks, no technical hand for instalation.My biggest mistake was to shift to DIsht from TATA sky.Tata sky is just great.

    I had Dish TV two years back. The service was not good and so i switched to some other service provider. Doing so i feel was the best thing to do rather than get irritated from the bad service

    Hi, I have been just saved from this trap, i had got a call from them on friday and have been told that there is an job opportunity and they will be taking an interview on the client behalf. I had asked for the job profile for which i got an answer saying that she does not hav an internet access. it was just a coincidence that i wanted to see about this consultancy in google, the first thing i saw was "Core Elements dubai Complaints - job scam "
    thank you who ever brought to our notice.

dish tv - fraud

Hello Everyone,

How smartly people take one connection of Dishtv and share with whole village...Pathetic

One day when i gone to my home town, I came to a strange experience that whole village was using Dish TV, Village with a population of more than 5000 people, can you beleive this ?????? when i asked my uncle what is the monthly subscription charge you are paying ..he replied Rs 80 per month. I was shocked!!! Than after my little investigation i came to know that their is one person named as Lalshankar Manshanker Joshi from Padra village, District Dungarpur, Rajasthan who has taken a legal Dish TV connection and giving output connection to whole village with a charge of 80/ per month. Isn't this too much. When i asked him not to do this as its not legal he said they have tie up with local dish tv officers to save them in case of surprise checking. I dont underestand why its happeninig and no one from Dish Tv is bother to stop all these.
Lalshankar Joshi (dish tv cable owner) Contact Info :- [protected]
Message for Dish TV Higher Authority Members :- My sincere request to please take necessary action to stop all this happeninig and also might be in other parts of country.

fraud in recharge voucher

Very Poor service. I Purchased Recharge Voucher from dishtv authorised dealer to recharge my channel package. But when I send the card details to 57575. I received sms from dishtv that card is invalid. I wrote to customer care but there was no reply. Even customer care agreed that the card is invalid but they didnt replaced me the card.Dealer also refusing to take back the card.

Please be careful while recharging dishtv through voucher. They are bluffing people and making money through wrong ways.

There customer care people are also giving wrong information. They also deducted processing fee from my account for no reasons and still not refunding.

Dishtv is the worst and fraud service on which you cannot rely on.
If anybody looking for DTH . I suggest please dont go for Dishtv its a fraud company.

This is for your kind information to all officials/ media complaint on board/nodal officer and Essel group CEO on board to tll you the following facts about Dishtv customer care services with regrets and request yoo to change name of IDSHTV TO DIRECTLY MAKING YOUR LIFE HELL. AS PER SAYING “ KUTTE KEE POONCH SHAYAD SEEDHI HO JAYE PAR DISH TV WALE SEEDHE NAHI HO SAKTE”.
1. That last year also I had dozen of complaints about dishtv customer care misbehavior, non compliance of complaints, irritating answers always like we are sorry etc. rather then doing the work.
2. That this year as I faced lots of problems about repeated disconnections of any of my VCs without my knowledge the detail knowledge has already been conveyed to many of officials in Dishtv namely Tariq, Snajana, Bhuvnesh, Imran, Nitinand above all chief of CC akhilesh.( se complaint as attachment in MS word.)
3. that I am repeatedly asking for recharge requests at my home which was fulfilled only as if I was begging after a long pause.
4. That the Customer care of Dishtv has fallen below dignity and needs total reform.
5. that despite the fact the escalation officers and many other seniors are invoved atlast somebody from ApolloAirworld in Rajuri Garden came for collection of my cheque( details enclosed including jpeg. Of cheque.)
6. That today I got information from some person called himself MR. HRIDAY THAT MY CHEQUE WAS DROPPED IN DROP BOX AND IT HAS BEEN MISPLACED. HE CALLED ON 28TH JUNE 2009 AROUND7 355PM NO. [protected].AND REQUESTING TO ISSUE A NEW CHEQUE. This shows height of irresponsibility with which the DTH officials are making a game of customers money.
7. such guilty customer care officials should be punished and reasons for orresponsibility may please be told to me.
8. That despite my repeated request to reply by mail or call me after 5:00Pm mostly they call before or mail contains only apology and no details as what has been done.
9. May I know who is responsible for the misplacement of cheque and further call is being given to me to please block cheque and issue a new one.
10. That the concerned officials as per details attached should be asked for their responsibility.
11. That I am forced to use harsh words and still I would say that Dish Tv are the most responsible in customer care.

set top box not working. complaint ref no. [protected] not resolved

My parents bought dish tv from m/s tiwari brothers, at raigarh (chattisgarh) vide invoice no. : 5343 on 17th november 2009. it was billed on my father's name: mr. p. k. bagchi

On 10th june 2010 the set top box stopped showing anything and was not even beaming any signal.

On 11th june my father deposited the faulty set top box (stb no. dst [protected]) to tiwari brothers from whom he had bought it, who next day told my father that they have deposited the faulty set top box to the dish tv service center m/s mega systems.

After constant follow ups, the set top box was returned to my father on 17th june 2010 which ran fine for that evening, but again stopped beaming signals from 10 pm on the same date.

On 18th june 2010 my father again deposited the faulty set top box to m/s mega systems (dish tv service center) , raigarh.

After rigorous follow ups my father was given an alternate old set top box (stb no. dst [protected]) on 20th june 2010 and was told that it will be activated in 4 hours time.

However this alternate set top box has still not got activated and hence is beaming only free to air channels, not the platinum pack which my father has subscribed to.

On reporting this to the seller (m/s tiwari brothers) and the service center (m/s mega systems) both are not responding.

I reported this entire issue to their customer care executive (west) on 21st june 2010 via telephone at 4.00 pm and was given the complaint reference number: [protected]. I was told that this issue will be resolved in next 2 hours and the alternate set top box will be activated if channel 999 is played for 2 hours constant, which my father did, but in vain.

This has caused grievous mental and physical problems to my parents who are both retired and senior citizens living alone in raigarh.

not receiving dish channels

5 December 2009

Dear Sir/Madam:

This complaint as follows is against the Manager, Dish TV India Ltd, Sector 16 A, Film city, Noida, Uttar Pradesh 210 301.

1. I got my Dish TV installed with one TV on 30/3/2005 (VC [protected]).

2. I got my second TV added (VC [protected]) on 15/2/2007 with additional subscription of Rs. 100 per month.

3. Since I had MAXI package of channels in my first TV, I had been getting the
whole MAXI package in the second TV as well for the last more than 2 years. That was until the second week of March 2009 when all of a sudden channels like Star channels, CNN, and BBC stopped showing on the 2nd TV although my subscription was renewed up to 26/5/2009. All of a sudden without informing me Dish TV started to call the 2nd TV (with reduced number of channels) as a child TV. We do not have any child; I watch CNN and BBC on the 2nd TV.

4. It had been my understanding that whatever package is subscribed for the first TV, it is also applicable to the second TV as well. That also had been my experience for the first 2 years with Dish TV.

5. When I asked Dish TV Customer Care about the missing channels on the 2nd TV, I was given different answers by their representatives, such as “Take out the smart card from the second set top box, clean and replace”, “You have to pay extra for CNN, BBC etc because this set is for the “child”, “Read your agreement it is given in there that you have to buy the additional channels for the 2nd TV”, etc. etc.

6. I sent an e-mail to Dish TV on 15/3/2009 to restore all MAXI channels in my 2nd TV like it was before otherwise I will go to Consumer Court.

7. I sent another letter dated 30/3/2009 by courier to Dish TV to their Noida address. I asked them where is our agreement which states that the second TV (VC) will not have the same package (MAXI in my case) as the first TV (VC). I requested them to furnish a copy of that agreement to me because I have not seen or signed any agreement with this clause. I also informed Dish TV that if I did not receive a copy of the agreement by 30 April 2009, I would be left with no option but to lodge a complaint with the Jaipur District Consumer Court to redress my grievance and to compensate my loss for not getting all the MAXI channels on the 2nd TV and also the agony and mental torture in dealing with Dish TV.

8. Dish TV has not yet responded to my letter of 30/3/2009 although over 7 months have passed after the deadline of 30 April 2009.

9. Since Dish TV has completely failed to redress my grievance, I request to please ask Dish TV to resolve this case as soon as possible.
