History

DTH service was launched back in 2004 by launching of Dish TV by Essel Group's Zee Entertainment Enterprises. Dish TV is on the same satellite where DD Direct+ was, DD Direct+ shifted to Insat 4B which is adjacent to NSS-6.

Dish TV was only DTH operator in India to carry the two Turner channels Turner Classic Movies and Boomerang. Both the channels were removed from the platform due to unknown reasons in March 2009. In October 2010 Dish tv added the long awaited Neo Sports and Neo Cricket on its platform

Satellite link

Dish TV uses NSS-6 to broadcast its programmes. NSS-6 was launched on 17 December 2002 by European-based satellite provider, NewSkies. Dish TV hopped on to NSS-6 from an INSAT satellite in July 2004. The change in the satellite was to increase the channel offering as NSS 6 offered more transponder capacity.

DTH on Wheels

Dish TV also provides mobile satellite TV on vehicles, trains and aircrafts.[2]

Subscriber Base

Dish TV had about 11.2 million customers as of 30 June 2011.[3]

There are about 35.5 million DTH subscribers in India as of June 2011.[4]
