Tata Sky DTH: Choosing right set-top box for your TV

When buying a new TV, we give so much importance to just about everything - size, resolution, connectivity ports, etc. However, when it comes to set-top boxes (STBs) - the essential hardware that brings content to our TVs - we seldom pay attention to the details.

So, if you are buying a new Tata Sky connection, here's all you need to know about STBs.

Option #1

Tata Sky SD

Tata Sky SD

This is the entry-level STB, compatible with TVs that have AV ports, offers standard definition (SD) channels with DVD picture quality and CD quality sound.

The SD STB is priced at Rs. 1,499 and you will have to subscribe to a channel pack separately.

Based on the channel pack, additional charges will apply including subscription fee, Network Capacity Fees (NCF) and taxes.

Option #2

Tata Sky HD

If you have a TV with an HDMI port, you should buy the Tata Sky HD STB.

This STB brings cinematic experience with 1080i resolution and 16:9 aspect ratio along with Dolby Digital Surround Sound.

The HD STB is priced at Rs. 1,699 and you will have to subscribe to a channel pack separately.

It is priced at Rs. 6,400 and channel packs will have to be subscribed separately.
