Hey guys i found this kinda interesting. chk it out :)

Watching ICC World Cup will be more interesting for cricket lovers as now they can enjoy the matches without being bothered by the advertisements. In the wake of making Cricket viewing interesting, few offerings under channel packages are coming with exciting offers for the first time. Now users can get rid of commercials by paying a big amount and also wear the hat of umpire by analyzing the match without any interruption of ads.

DTH providers are offering exciting packages for users which will enable them to watch the full match without any break. In this run, DTH giant Tata Sky Ltd. is providing Active Sports for HD viewers in which they can watch the match with their favorite angels. They can add more fun by changing the language to Hindi, English, Gujarati, Bangla and hear the commentary too in the language of their choice. Tata Sky Ltd. is also providing value added services through the set-top-box enabled with High Definition Personal Video Recorder (HDPVR).

The best and most convinient way to watch whole commercial free world cup in HD is to go 4 Dish TV tru HD pack...I have been enjoying this since starting.Cost to be incurred:

Dish Tru HD Decoder + HD LNB + 4 Feet Dish = 12,500 (with free 2 month Platinum package)

700 Rupees per month for 30 HD Channels PAck.

Infact I ve seen the quality on Cric One and TATA sky digital too, but the Dish TV quallity is far too strong and hassle free with no delays and signal issues.

Nice dude, I'm pretty pissed off at my cable guy right now, he's ruined the World Cup for me. Can you tell me where you bought the dish tv HD decoder? And are the 30 channels just the HD channels + all the other SD channels or is it 30 channels in total?

Im also looking forward to buying this pack however im concerned about the quality of channels, i know it does say 1080i HD but is the quality really like 1080i tv series/movies we download from internet or it is just upscaled versions of normal channels?

Cric One has the rights of 2011 WC for Middle East which is available on Pehla (ADD) package. So yea OSN will not be showing this event.

Regarding Indian channels, they'll surely have atleast one HD channels for WC. right now Dish TV has Ten Cricket in HD, Tata Sky has Neo Cricket in HD, Airtel has ESPN in HD which they'll switch to the channel showing WC when it starts.

frnds to watch HD channels

you need any HD STB like.. Tata sky+ HD, Dish TruHD, SunHD etc..

main thing you need LCD or LED with 1080P resolution which is full HDTV

not 720p which is HD ready..

I'm enjoying on My LG Infinia LED really stadium experience

You don't say...

Btw, today I went to Hall Road to look for Dish TV HD. No one had it, they said it would take a week to get them. One had Airtel HD available but I know nothing about that. Another fool asked for 22000. Lol.

yar agar tumhe apne Flat tv pe hi match dekhna h to HD STB ki jarurat nai..

Dish tv basic stb uske liye perfect hai..

If u have HDTV then you need to buy HD stb which give 16:9 aspect ratio and 1080p for ur Screen.....

rizla its not that expensive... you need to contact some reliable source.Its not more than 11,000Rs(am talking about HD dishtv).The one who quoted 22,000 seems to me a complete hard nut :D You should have told him that in 22,000Rs I can buy a PVR dreambox 800 HD instead of dishtv :D

I'd appreciate that...you can PM me. And I suppose the exorbitant price on Hall Road was due to the fact it was short, they all said they would get more in on Monday so I will check there again this week.

Thanks man kindly give me his number i well try to have some idea because these lahore hall rd dealers are crazy as hell. Firstly truHD is short in market and secondly they are quoting crazy rates like Rs.17000 for monoblack lnb. They even told me monthy rate of 30channels hd of Rs.1200/mth claiming that in india rate is 650 indian rupees which is clearly not true if someone checks their website.
