Dish Home vs Cable TV Service in Nepal - An Overview
Wondering whether to prefer satellite connection or get cable connection in Nepal?
Trend of watching television started with the inception of Nepal television back in B.S 2042 (1985 A.D.) in the country. Most of the adults now have childhood memories of antenna connections on their balcony or roof. The nostalgia of communicating from the top of the house to the black and white TV in the drawing room is one of the most common feeling people share.
The television industry has come a long way since then and the progress though gradual has advanced to higher level. There are some milestones that need not be overlooked when we talk about the overall evolution of television service in Nepal. Era of television antenna, cable channels and satellite digital technology are 3 major phases. After Nepal television’s establishment, the first trend was all about the antenna connection. The urban and semi urban regions felt proud to show antennas on their solid concrete houses recently built. The impact was so high that the house with antenna enjoyed higher status symbol. Kathmandu and places nearby enjoyed Nepal television with the help of those antennas. However, the people in farther regions didn’t have proper access to the country’s only television service and hence had to go for the Durdarshan channel by neighboring country India.
Immediately after this tendency, the television service grew up towards more advanced technology i.e. cable TV. Wired TV connection in 90s was such a fresh air that many people embraced it happily. Clarity while viewing and multiple channel options were the most revolutionary factors for TV lovers. Though there were some problems with the connections, establishment of several cable operators revolutionized the TV watching trend in short span of time.
The last but not the least phase comes with the services like Dish Home who started satellite digital TV service in Nepal. The technology is connectionless meaning there’s no wire connected with the cable operator headquarter. This technology turned out to be so successful that many remote villages, hilly and mountainous areas, semi urban regions and mainstream cities embraced it in no time. It with extreme extent changed the era of cable channels in Nepal.
Since technology is growing day by day and advanced tools and trends are emerging, we will witness many more trends in coming future. But considering the current trend there’s always some concerns by common people that what is the better solution for TV channels – either to get a cable connection or go for a satellite TV service. Though satellite technology is always ahead if it comes to the quality of channels, consistency and simplicity, the concern stresses towards the affordability. This is where people need to be aware about the core understanding that none of the top TV services in Nepal are sharing. Going for a satellite connection is one of the smartest moves as it is very affordable while installing, gives you flexibility in TV packages (you can actually select which channels to watch and pay only for them), less error prone reducing unnecessary payments over the time for error fixing, HD quality in channels and several other facilities.
