After months of trying to get information on this box and still not getting satisfactory answers. I decided to register my interest on the website for a callback.

Apparently the call center folks think this callback is only for taking shipping address and sending the device through COD. Costs 1.6k.

Although It wasn't my intention to buy I decided to just go with it and see what happens.

I realised that it ships from my own locality and got the box delivered within 2 hours of my call. Only Airtel has ever done this in the past(2015).

Anyway, to my surprise I got a whole package of things.
1: zip ties
2: Rg6 compression plugs
3: av cable
4: cable fasteners
5: universal remote
6: stb
7: 2 AAA batteries
8: AC adapter



For some reason I could not get great signal from ses8 and gsat15. Turns out my Solid lnb had almost failed.



Sure enough, I got signal from both sats to a decent quality. And began activation. There was a software upgrade before anything could be done.



After this the box asked me if I wanted ses8 or st2. Since I already have st2, tata_play and Airtel lol. I choose ses8



I got the low balance measage and like others posted the steps, I sent the sms to 57575 and it took 1 minute to activate and show the below screen.



Free IPL on ss Hindi

I can recharge and view channel and subscription/charges from the DishTV app.



Since the LNB is dead, I cannot use the box for another week as I wait for solid to ship a new LNB.

Below are the only 2 paid channels.


Now a very interesting and deceptive thing that was not mentioned anywhere was that there is 18% GST on the overall cost of each channel and it's NCF. So if you only watch a handful of channels then Zing will be cheap, else it's expensive if you want many channels, that too in HD.





Below is the Cost of 1 HD channel listed as 19Rupees.



SD channel cost above ₹5



SD channel cost under ₹5



HD channel cost above ₹5



HD channel cost under ₹5
