    1080p is slightly superior to 1080i, which is being offered by all other operators. 1080i (interlaced) is the format recorded by HD cams and converted to 1080p (progressive). IIRC, Reliance beams in mp4 format so they can use more channels in given bandwidth. Whether it is 1080i or 1080p, if the frame rate is not 23.79fps and aspect ratio is not 16:9, you are not getting HD. Visually, 1080i and 1080p won't be any different on HD TV. If Reliance is saying all channels in 1080p, be sure it is upscaled.

    I know that kaps, but has anybody started using their sevices as I don't have an iota of faith in Ambanis.

    I was more interested in their IPTV service, but seems that did not take off.

    Looks like everybody except Tata Sky would be offering even SD channels in upscaled HD. Guess stuck with Tata Sky for now.
  5. Guys,

    Hope many of you here are using DTH services from one vendor or the other. Starting this thread so that we can discuss on it. This thread might help us to change to the best DTH provider at affordable cost.

    I am using BIG TV from Reliance, Normal box [Not HD] and the service is quite okaish.

    Setbox response time is dead slow and hangs if we change channels too fast. Have to hard reboot to make it working again.

    Clarity: Ok but i hate the big logo of BIGTV, i have a CRT TV [LG 29''] probably switching to plasma this diwali.

    Cost: 200 Rs per month with majority of English movie channels out

    interactive services: not tried

    Recharge: Easily done through net

    Overall: Believe it to be cost effective

    We are using Dish TV for the past 5 years and switched to HD last year (SD still remains). Happy with the service but not the HD 'box. Hangs frequently and takes long time to boot

    A similar thread on DTH is already there. I will merge it into this one. I am using Airtel DTH but think I will get something else if I am to use it with a 1080p Full HD.

    Airtel DTH is best VFM.
