Tata Sky overtakes Dish TV to become top DTH operator in Apr-Jun quarter - TelevisionPost: Latest News, India’s Television, Cable, DTH, TRAI
I find this methodology quite inaccurate, on the particular days when data is recorded any operator or channel can be ahead of others. It would be better if average is calculated for all the days in each of the respective months and figures shared in public. Just randomly selecting 4 days leaves potential of manipulation.
That means Tata Sky becomes the biggest DTH brand with whopping 32% market Share in DTH Industry.

Congratulations to Tata Sky and all its Subscribers. :kiss2::hs::cheers:

I think after merging D2H, Dish TV lost many subscribers. Also the Trai's rule made subscription rates equal, thus people started preferring better service.
Their consumers were facing inconvenience on lock-in-period issue.
