Dish TV launch the Streaming service for their subscribers, using this service Dish TV subscriber can watch Live TV on their Smartphone and mobile. The service named DishOnline. Customer can use it on web browser, Android and iOS devices.
With DishOnline Streaming, Dish TV subscriber can view 35 channels live, stream over 1000 movies and catch up on past episodes of their favorite shows across 4 different sections. The subscriptions packages start with Starter Pack at Rs. 49 and go up to Rs. 129 for the Jumbo Pack. With the Starter Pack customers will only have access to movies, TV shows and videos and with the Jumbo Pack they get the services of Starter Pack along with live TV streaming. Early subscribers would be able to avail these packs at discounted rates of Rs. 29 and Rs. 69 respectively.
Since this is a Dish TV service you get access to most Zee Network channels and a few more. Dish TV has collaborated with Ditto TV to bring this service to their users. To be honest though, Ditto TV service is a tad better than this as you do not have to be a Dish TV subscriber and you get more channels like Colors and MTV. The only difference is that Ditto TV packages are slightly expensive as compared to DishOnline ones. But since you are getting more channels the prices would not hurt. Now it’s a good move by Direct to Home operators understanding the importance of live streaming channels and it would inspire other operators to venture in this business, but in a country like India where mobile internet service is still quite expensive will people go for streaming services that hurt their data limits? Only time will tell.
