D2H offering new connection at very affordable price. l experienced & appreciate their auto renewal Watcho promotion pack (l know it old offer) to enjoy 3 month pack for 1/3 of price. Even you cancel pack before 3 month they accept cancellation & withdraw the offer exactly on 90th day. l enjoyed top Indian OTT (except Prime & Netflix) in max HD quality on any device including TV.
