Q. What is DTH?

A. DTH stands for Direct-To-Home television. DTH is defined as the reception of satellite programmes with a personal dish in an individual home. DTH does away with the need for the local cable operator and puts the broadcaster directly in touch with the consumer.

Q. Can SUN DIRECT be viewed without disconnecting existing cable connection?

A. Cable connection can be viewed in normal TV mode and DTH channels can be viewed in AV mode by choosing the AV option from the remote of your TV set. DTH channels can be changed using STB remote control.

Q. Once the Dish & STB are installed, will it be possible to receive all channels?

A. Once the dish & STB are installed, you will need to activate a pack, through which you will get the channel that you have subscribed to.

Q. If there are more than one TV set in one house, will all TV sets require separate STBs/Dishes to receive SUN DIRECT?

A. Yes, for each TV a separate STB will be required and no need of separate dish.

A. Yes, please contact our call center for further assistance

Q. Will the reception be affected by rains/snowfall?
