Dish TV

So I'm a football fanatic.. literally :D

My problem is that I'm so sick of typical local cable TV as I only get access to ESPN and Star Sports and that too offer HINDI Commentary for premier league.... yukh!!! :angry:

I was hoping to move to Dish TV.. like SUN TV etc... I want channels like SkySports, SuperSports etc.... :P

Possible?? :rolleyes:

I have Airtel HD reciever On star sports HD feed Only English commentary with Dolby Digital plus 7.1

Dish TV doesn’t have Star sports HD channels

Star Sports 1

Star Sports 3

Star Sports 4

Ten Sports

Ten Action

Ten Golf

Neo Sports

Euro Sports 2

Aljazeera Sports +3

Abu Dhabi Sports 1

and your local

PTCL's Smart TV to be exact :)

http://ptcl.com.pk/pd_content.php?pd_id=110

and the thread on our forum:

on ptcl's smart tv the commentary is also in hindi on star sports...

^^^^Not on all 3 channels but only on Star Sports 2 occasionally. Whereas Star Sports 3 (formerly Star Cricket) is all Hindi channel now. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/STAR_Sports_3

yes you're right! and they offer only two sports channel for soccer.. ESPN and Start Sports.. which I also get on my local cable.. so PTCL is not an option.. i checked it before posting this thread...

The thing that i want: I want multiple sports channels because most of the times, BPL matches start together and they never broadcast Chelsea's match :( ... So I was hoping for a sports package with a lot of sports channels... anyone?

Go for Airtel HD I'm sure you'll not be disappointed

Because they have all sports channels

Sony Six HD
Ten HD

HD channels
Only telecast

Star Sports 2
Star Sports 3
Star Sports 4

Neo Sports
Neo Prime

Ten Sports
Ten cricket
Ten Golf

Ten Action
A dedicated football channel

Trace Sports

In My opinion

Choice for you

Hello?? did i mention ESPN anywhere on above list? when and where did you last check? ESPN is no longer a channel anywhere in Asia. It was replaced by Star Sports 4 in India and Fox Sports in rest of Asia. All those channels i mentioned above are currently "available" on Smart TV.

I called PTCL and asked them about the channels.. they referred me to a list of channels they offer.. Please check this.. it's no different than a local cable network..

bro you're very aggressive and I like that :D (just kidding.. chillax man :) ) <_<

yar the thing is that I JUST talked to a PTCL representative, and he JUST told me that these are the only 5 sports channels 'we' offer... now what can i say man... I'm a big fan of PTCL but I'm just AMAZED why won't they even bother updating their list of channels.. it'll only get them thousands of more customers.. ridiculous..... :blink:
