Just stumbled upon this forum, it was great to see some constructive ideas floating around. I must say that this is a great forum for all-things-tech and I've bookmarked it already
Guys, I need some help regarding cable TV reception in karachi (Gulistan-e-jauhar to be more exact). I live overseas and wanted to get some decent TV entertainment for my Mom who has just bought an LCD TV, all by herself. So I did some research around and found that there are so many options floating list DTH, DWN (Previously SUN), PTCL smart TV, WorldCall and what not.
The factors I am considering are :
- As my mom is completely naive to anything with more than two options (on/off) on it so it has to be setup-once use-all-your-life thingi.
- secondly if the customer service is good/satisfactory, that will be a major plus.
- since I am also looking for broadband, wireless broadband plus TV so if all can be bundled into one, it would be great but its not my priority at the moment as I already have a PTCL boradband.
I had to cross-out any wireless transmitted options as I don't believe that wireless can give you a better quality than a dedicated cable. But I also have an impression that you need certain level of geeky-ness to setup and maintain everything. Please correct me if I am wrong.
I am leaning greatly towards Worldcall as it seems to be a major brand across Pakistan. But I can't get any reliable information about the service (TV and customer) online on any forums.
Since you guys are gurus on the topic any help will be greatly and truly appreciated.
