Sun Direct Launches India first HD DTH Service

Sun Direct the 80:20 joint venture between the Maran family and the Astro Group of Malaysia created history by launching the first ever High Definition (HD) DTH broadcast in India. HDTV(High Definition TV) is considered as one of the world’s best digital broadcast platforms with a much higher resolution than the traditional television broadcast that we have. The images and pictures appear more clear and sharp and sound quality is also enhanced. HDTV will improve the viewer experience by about 5 times over a regular television, coz it cuts down significantly on the noise.

Sun Direct offers almost 200+ channels and has all of the most viewed and new channels broadcasted in India. Sun Direct has also recently started to introduce International channels in all their basic packs.

The HDTV Package though currently seems to be a bit too costly at Rs.9,999(for the HD box) + taxes (Any basic pack must be purchased for 5 or 10 or 12 months for experiencing the service. Installation charge Rs. 1250 + HD content usage charge(Rs. 100 p.m.) extra.)
