Asia Bizz: Dish TV India has recently launched the Dish truHD+ service which features high definition content as well as unlimited recording of the TV programs. But beware, the word ‘unlimited’ might be a bit tricky in terms of recording the TV programs.
The TV programs actually get recorded in an external USB drive, which means that the user can record the TV programs according to the capacity of the hard drives that can be purchased. On the other hand, the system has incredibly reduced the cost of the set top box.
Now Dish truHD+ will be available in the Indian market at just Rs 2,690 only. The cost has incredibly reduced as the Tata Sky+ HD set top box costs Rs 5,990.
The only concern is the performance of the set top box as it is a known fact that the performance will be better in an internal disc than an external one. This has also left hope that the programs that are stored in an external disc can also be viewed on a computer, which is also prone to piracy. But overall, the idea of allowing recording on an external disc is a great idea just `due to the fact that the new arrangement has brought down the cost of the set top box.
