[edit]About reliace digitalTV

Reliance digital TV limited is a part of Reliance Communications Ltd., a subsidiary of Reliance Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group[3] founded by the Late Dhirubhai Ambani, the Indian business tycoon and owned by his son Anil Ambani. reliace digital TV started operations from 19 August 2008 with the slogan "TV ho Toh BIG Ho" ("If you have a TV, make it BIG"). It currently offers close to 240 channels[4] and many interactive ones, 32 cinema halls (i.e. Pay Per View Cinema Channels) as well as many Radio channels. The company plans to increase the number of channels in the near future to 400 and begin High Definition (HD) broadcast. There are also plans to introduce services like i-Stock, i-News and other such interactive services in the future.[5]
The available opportunity today is huge considering the fact that India has an existing population of 225 million TV households out of which 130 million are C&S households and 16.5 Million are DTH households. When Reliance BIG TV was launched, the overall DTH penetration was just about 4 million households[citation needed].
Reliance digital TV's launch in August deployed the MPEG4 technology[6]. MPEG4 technology can support HD TV and not MPEG2 which is used by the earlier entrants in the DTH industry[citation needed].
The MPEG4 technology helps to broadcast up to 35 to 40 channels per transponder[citation needed]. With 12 transponders they are able to broadcast over 400 channels[citation needed]. They are currently utilizing only 8 of their transponders to broadcast over 200 channels[citation needed].
Reliance digital TV's retailer network is spread across 100,000 outlets in 6,500 towns in India[citation needed]. They also introduced 32 Pay-Per-View Movie Channels, the highest by any DTH player[citation needed].
[edit]Subscriber Base

reliance digital TV had about 3.5 million customers as of November 2010.[7] There are about 30 million DTH subscribers in India as of February 2011.[8]
