IPTV – Finally a reality in India

October 13th, 2006

The much hyped IPTV of Bharti Tele-Ventures Limited is still in Test Labs. State owned Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Limited – MTNL has launched its IPTV in Mumbai and Delhi.

Viewers will be able to watch 20 Channels which will eventually go up to 200. They can also watch Video on demand.

To get IPTV, you need a MTNL Phone, MTNL Triband Broadband and then subscribe additionally for IPTV services. Why IPTV makes no sense in India ? First it will be a costly affair because you are paying for your ridiculously low speed broadband say Rs1,500 to Rs2,500 a month and additional fees for IPTV subscriptions. You can view Dish TV at far cheaper price. I don’t think IPTV can match the quality of service offered by Dish TVs in India. We will know soon 🙂
