Are you about to buy a new DTH connection for your home? Check for these 3 things first.
A DTH connection is a must in every house. It provides the best picture and sound quality, and a wide range of both national and international channels (SD and HD). Besides, the biggest advantage is that you pay only for what you want to watch – your local cable TV provider will give you a generic bouquet of channels that will comprise a mix of everything. You will most probably not watch most of these channels – so you will end up paying for that which you don’t need.
When buying a new DTH connection, you must ask these questions:
1 How responsive and transparent is the provider? The first thing to look for is the service provider’s responsiveness to your request. When you call the provider asking for details of their DTH plans, the provider must ask questions about your channel preferences, viewing habits, etc. They must then recommend a suitable pack to you, and explain the installation process. At this stage, they must also fully explain the pack price, how you will be billed and what your pack options are. They must then send a technician to your place of residence within 24 hours to install the dish antenna and set up box. If you take Airtel DTH, the installation will be done quickly, with the technician fully explaining how to use the connection, the remote control for the setup box, and how to use the same remote control for the setup box and the TV set.
2 What is the pack price, payment and recharge options? Get an understanding of the pack price, channels in it, how many HD channels there are, and the payment and recharge options you have. The DTH connection price includes the cost of the equipment like set up box (set up box price is part of the package), dish antenna, remote control, pack price (depending on the pack duration and type that you choose). Leading providers like Airtel do not charge installation fees, and there are discounts on the base pack. There are easy payment and recharge options – you can pay for your new connection online and also recharge online from the Airtel website or myAirtelapp. Recharging via the myAirtel app also gives cashback and great discounts.
3 What are the packs like? Study the different packs on offer for your city. The packs may be different as per city of operation. Several providers offer different kinds of packs, like base packs, regional packs, infotainment packs, GEC packs, add-on packs, etc. You may even be able to modify the existing pack to add channels of your choice, or remove some channels if you sign up for a DTH connection with Airtel. Also ask for current discounts being offered, or if there are options to buy the pack at a lower price. Airtel offers you the choice to buy a one-month pack as well as 12-months pack online, for a fabulous discount.
