With a WorldCall CATV (Analog) connection you can sub-
scribe to their digital service by paying Rs. 3,500/- for
their digital cable box.
But should you require another digital box, say for availing
the Pic-in-Pic function of a large screen TV, or recording
media from another channel, you can pay and get another
box, but now you will be charged Rs. 150/month extra on
your bill under the heading of a "2nd CATV" connection.
If you ask their sales rep today, a second digital box has
no monthly fee attached to it, but their billing department
says we will add a second CATV charge on your bill, if you
get a second digital box. Nowhere on their website is this
policy/principle mentioned or alluded to, in any way.
Since the fee for the digital box is non-refundable, you
can't hand it back to them. Not only are you in it for the
price of the box, but for every month thereafter, in perp-
etuity. And they get to advertise that their digital service
Now that, is quite a neat little trick.
