Tata Sky one of the largest DTH provider in India reacted to Netflix launch and made watching TV on internet free for it’s existing subscribers.
Tata Sky launched the new service Everywhere TV back in 2013 and was available to Tata Sky subscribers for Rs. 60 per month. The service has now become free in wake of launch of Netflix in India.
Tata Sky Everywhere TV is available through App which is available both for the Android and iOS users. The service is also available for desktop and laptop devices through App for mac and Windows PC.
The App allows users to watch 80 channels live on the Tata Sky App. You can view all the channels which you have subscribed to your primary Tata Sky connection on the App. If you don’t have certain channels subscribed to your primary Tata Sky account then you will need to first subscribe to those before watching them on the App.
The Tata Sky Everywhere can be used on two devices simultaneously per subscriber ID.
The registration process is very simple and just takes 5 minutes to setup. You can download the App and then log in using the registered mobile number or the Tata Sky Subscriber ID. You will get a confirmation message and you are set to go.
Netflix on the other hand is offering some of unique content like popular TV series – Marco Polo , Breaking Bad, Arrows, Orange is the New Black and Better call Saul to name a few. A lot of people have already watched some of these serials by downloading now they are available for streaming using Netflix.
Netflix however is not a cheaper service, it will cost you around Rs. 500 for a single user registration and if you share the service with your friends can be cheaper. But the major issue is the massive cost of data which you will have to bear with the streaming service and also you will need a good internet connection with high band width above 5 MBPS to stream the videos in great quality.
Data plans can cost above Rs. 1500 with a 50 GB or 100 GB monthly consumption, making the service expensive in Indian context.
