then I left North Bengal in 2014 to study in Kolkata, and then my father switched to Manthan Cable (Cable TV came to our village for the first time, so not only my father, whole village dropped their DTH and switched to Cable because then local cable was giving so much benefits (cheapest price, all popular Hindi, English & Bangla channels, latest movies, and much more..)

Villager after all villager! (talking generally dont get hurt) :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO::rofl2:

Appreciate you effort to put detail in deeply.

Gone are the days of paying north of ₹6000 for a PVR box! Also, SD boxes are going to be obsolete soon.

Pros and Cons of Sun Direct:
1. Cheapest ROI SD Packs. South too.
2. HD Packs too quite cheap.
3. Sun Nxt App subscription free with every active subscription of dth
4. Cash back if recharged through sun direct app or www.sundirect.in
5. South Indian Cinema Clubs Exclusive.
6. More than 30+ Bengali Channels, Services & Language Feeds
7. GST not charged for ala carte as it is already charged during pack recharged.
8. Exclusive Marathi channel - Sun Marathi.
9. Apart from channels, Language Feeds, Cinema Clubs, Home Channels.
10. HD & SD Box with recording facility.
11. Most important best service. Complaint solved very quickly.

Cons:
1. No Interactive Services
2. Home channels in South Indian languages. Difficult for ROI customers to understand.
3. At one point of time Bangladeshi channels were there. But now not a single Bangladeshi channel. Dish TV & DD Free Dish carrying Bangladeshi channel till today.
4. No Polimer channels for Tamil.
5. Website not at all updated timely.
6. All doordarshan channels are not present. Though it is mandatory. Like DD Shimla, DD Hissar, DD Goa, DD Jharkhand, DD Manipur, DD Mizoram.
7. Very less Assamese channels. Even the central govt owned DD Manipur, DD Mizoram available.
8. Devotional channels should be part of all DPO Packs- However Prarthana Channel not available on all DPO Packs.
9. Very late in adding new channels.
10. Wrong EPG always. Zee Punjab Haryana Himachal EPG shows Zee Punjabi which creates confusion as Zee Punjabi is a separate channel.
11. Gujarati & Punjabi DPOs not available.
12. Kite Victers Free Education Service, though free but not available on all packs. Only available on request.

anything missing in the South section @Kannadiga bro can help.

Airtel is still offering SD connection at Rs 1,100 and price of ADTV HD box is Rs 1,300 not 1,800.

Prices mentioned for d2h and Dish TV Streaming boxes are also wrong. Rs 2,499 is only for existing users who are upgrading, new connection will cost Rs 3,999.
