Let's discuss on which year we got our first DTH/Cable connection.

Q1: How is the experience today as compared to back than?

Q2: For cable users only. In which year did you switch from analogue to digital cable?

We got our 1st cable connection in 2001. At that time we had B&W TV with shutter from both side. At that time hardly 15-20channels were there.

Then back in 2014 We shifted to airtel DTH.

And then from 2021 august , completely shifted to OTT model from DTH. Currently using no cable or dth service.
