Move this thread in Dth comparison section
'D2h' is a tradmark of Videocon as their dth bussiness which is not use for other dth
DTH Portability is NOT practically possible at this moment. Since different service providers use different compresson technology and Set Top Box.
Its not like Mobile Number Portability where its possible to replace only SIM. You buy your own choice of phone from open market. This is not the case with DTH. Every providers has different box and technology. Some uses Mpeg2, some Mpeg4.
However, they can sell SmartCard for Rs 500 or so separately but again you have to buy STB with CAM Slot which is not cheap and your previous providers STB will be of no use. So its not economical.
Thus, its not technically, practically and economically possible at this moment.
Regards & Best Compliments:
It is a difficult task ..(agree with asitpaul)
Either you run the day, or the day runs you
Can any technical knowledge people about this share with all if one day dth portability will happen with customer not paying more to change his connection?
plz clear ur question mr anupbharadwaj
First of all the thread starter needs to understand the difference between the words DTH and D2h. DTH is the general term of DIRECT TO HOME services. D2h is the registered trade mark of Videocon. Tata sky, dishtv are such trade names of other providers. He keeps on using the term D2h for all DTH services.
