hi dear ones,

DTH- Directed Towards Home

 DTH stands for Direct-To-Home television -DTH is defined as the reception of satellite programmes with a personal dish in an individual home. And an individual Set Top Box empowering you to pick & choose you bundles of choice and pay for what you watch

How is DTH (Direct to Home) service different from existing cable TV service?

 DTH is an encrypted transmission that travels to the consumer directly through a satellite.

DTH transmission is received directly by the consumer at his end through a small dish antenna.The other advantage of DTH is the availability of satellite broadcast in rural and semi-urban areas laying of cable is difficult.

     * Due to digital compression techniques, many more niche channels are available than cannot be provided by cable operators.

    * DTH also offers digital quality signals which do not degrade the picture or sound quality.

    * It also offers interactive channels and program guides with customers
