From the days when people had a handful of channels, today, we live in an era where people are spoilt for choices. We at DishTV have always been at the forefront in enhancing TV viewing experience and exploring opportunities to bring wholesome entertainment to the audience. With a sharp focus on regional language content, the move aims at connecting strongly with the regional language subscribers.
