Credits to Sun for exclusive addition of two FTA channels Sun Bangla HD and Sun Marathi HD. But Tata Play just killed it. Be it from channel addition, New UI to offers. No one else even has any chance this month. Also Dish and D2h had amazing recharge offers. Airtel added 2 sports channel. DD FreeDish user gets a new HD channel. This is probably the best month for all DTH users after NTO. So, congratulations to everyone.
