Videon offers LCD and satellite TVs—with sizes ranging from 19” to 32”—which are compatible with DTH. Initially, Videocon d2h was operating under the tag line “Direct Hai, Correct Hai”, but this was later changed to “Digital DTH service” in 2011.
Currently Videocon offers its subscribers more than 490 channels, including 26 real HD channels, 21 music services and 1 3D channel. The company launched its own “digital video recorder” or DVR in May 2011, so their subscribers can now record live TV content. Since then, the company has launched their 3D set top box (STB), becoming the first service provider in India to provide 3D compatible set top boxes to their customers.
By January 2014, Videocon has over 10 million customers.
Videocon was the first DTH service company to provide 3D ready STBs to their aubscribers. This means that with a 3D compatible STB box, Videocon customers can watch 3D content without the need for a 3D television. The company also became the first DTH provider to offer a 3D channel to their subscribers.
