Does it make sense for a north indian family to go for sun direct connection. I am currently living in Mysuru and my usage include all english entertainment and movies and maybe few hindi channels in case my wife craves for saas-bahu serials in future.
I have read that sun direct packages comes out to be cheaper than tata/airtel.
Suggestions are welcome.

As per my experience, If you not using the sun direct set top box for more than one month, then you need to bring the set top box to service centre for software update. Then only it will work. Some times you need to replace.

Firstly, yes SunDirect is cheaper than buying any other DTH. Secondly, the addition of HD channels are even faster than Tata Play and ADTV combined.
Now, yes SD channel quality of very few channel is not good although they are sd they supposed to look like.
Whereas SunDirect has all major Eng & Hindi movie and GEC in HD so that's not an issue.
Being a cable TV user than moving to Tata Play and now landed on SunDirect I've experienced everything. From price to quality I've come across everything and found that we watch very few channel and wasted a lot in subscribing useless channel.

I believe that the quality of some SD channels in Sun Direct is not up to the mark (in HD boxes), because they have been using 2 different satellites for HD and (most) SD channels.

According to the following thread, Sun Direct is in the process of migrating all channels to a single satellite.

Once all of them are migrated, I guess that the quality of SD channels would significantly improve, as all users can then realign their dishes to focus on this one satellite.

As of now, the dishes for HD boxes are aligned in such a way that they are smack in the middle of the 2 satellites.
