Tata Sky DTH has some great news for their customers. The company has decided to replace all MPEG2 STBs in use by their customers with MPEG4 capable units.
This has been made necessary because the company has run out of space to add new channels and they need all their customers to move to the MPEG4 STBs to benefit from different transponders.
The company said that they are hoping to replace 4-5 million STBs in the next 12 month or so. This would cost the company around Rs. 1000 crores.
The problem for the company is that ISRO has still not delivered to them the transponders they ordered. Which is forcing them to take the expensive route.
