Tata Sky Plus HD – Full Review and Specifications
In this post we are going to review Tata Sky Plus HD and its new features like pause and rewind a Live Tv. Before using Tata Sky Plus my biggest turn offs while watching television on larger screens are the picture quality, stretched and blurred pixels.
How does Tata Sky Plus work?
Tata Sky plus works on various Transmitters (Tx) and Receptors (Rx). Here is the detailed video:
Initially i have the old tata sky and i tried to install the new set-top box of tata sky plus hd on the older wiring and antenna but it needs two wiring to work effectively. I didn’t know that one set-top box can be activated on more than one subscriber ids but my new set-top box of tata sky plus HD can play older subscriber card (one with old set-top box) as well as newer subscriber card(one with new set-top box). Once engineer from tata sky visited my home and now they are confused about the whole setup and illusions of various subscriber cards(digicards) 🙂
Update: You can also look into our recent post on running 2 Digicards (Subscriber Card) on Single Tata Sky Plus HD (Set-top Box)
2 Subscriber ID Card (digicards) are working fine on single set-top box [Exception]

It is worthy to spend few extra bucks on Tata Sky Plus HD in case you want to have perfection in your television viewing experience. In few simple words i like picture quality, sound quality, extended features and an extra dope of technology in the forms of HDMI and usb ports for connection. For more information you can download the user guide of Tata Sky Plus HD and read another review by Gaurav Gupta.
Gaurav ji, According to your review, you have stated that you are getting some free movies like Jodha Akbar, Bhooth etc. for free playback under VoD. I am using TS+HD whereas there is no such movies available for free playback. When I was using Tatasky Plus (without HD), I was getting these movies. Right now under HD STB, I get series like "Comedy, Travel, Animation, and Food" only and there is no such movies. When I called up CC, I was told that there is no such free movies shown under VoD. I am using Mega Pack. As on 26.3.2011, are u getting these free movies as mentioned by you under VoD category. Waiting for your reply please. By the way your review in details is excellent. Thanks. Ravi, Chennai.
