DishTV enhances focus on HD, launches new ad campaign

DishTV has launched a new AD campaign to educate the consumers about the television viewing experience with genuine Hi-Definition (HD) picture quality. The ad features Shahrukh Khan showcasing the transition from Black and white TV viewing to color to HD viewing.

This informative AD campaign highlights the merits of HD picture quality and encourages its consumers to upgrade to HD set top box to enjoy an HD TV viewing experience.

DishTV conducted a research to understand why the rising demand for HD TV’s has not led to an increase in the up gradation of STB’s from SD to HD. This research gave an insight into the consumer mindset that they buy an HD TV to enjoy hi-definition viewing. But, that is not the case; in a bid to bust this myth, Dish TV introduced this new campaign to educate its consumers along with a set of new subscription packs along with it.

To make HD more affordable, DishTV has also introduced HD sachets (small HD entertainment add on packs) to capture the interest of consumers towards HD viewing by offering them at a nominal price of Rs.75.

According to the press release, DishTruHD + set top box gives its viewers an enhanced TV viewing experience with 1080i resolution picture quality, aspect ratio of 16:9 and 5.1 surround sound. It also offers a width of 50 HD Channels along with the facility of unlimited recording at no additional cost.

Commenting on the development, Arun Kumar Kapoor, Chief Executive Officer, DishTV said, “TV viewing in India has undergone a sea change over the years. From the days when people had a handful of channels, today, we live in an era where people are spoilt for choices. With this campaign, we would like to educate the consumer that to enjoy an HD viewing experience, it is essential to upgrade the STB from SD to HD. This new HD offer is in line with our commitment to give our viewers the best in terms of quality and service. DishTV being a strong believer in the potential of the HD segment in India. And, going forward, this all new HD campaign, will further accelerate the adoption of HD services in the country.”
