Tata Sky unveils personal video recorder service
Sify Business Line (Oct 15, 2008)
DTH service provider Tata Sky has announced the launch of its PVR service. Branded Tata Sky + (Tata Sky Plus), the personal video recorder (PVR) service implies that users need no longer worry about missing the programme of their choice or give up watching it if a family member wants to watch another one.
Addressing a press conference, Vikram Kaushik, Managing Director and CEO, Tata Sky, described it as a “life changing product” that would end the “war of the remote” in homes. The PVR technology will enable users not only to record TV shows but also pause, rewind and then forward the shows as they are being broadcast on television. It allows up to 45 hours of recording on TV and has capacity of 160 GB.
It allows the user to record one channel while watching another channel, record two channels simultaneously and watch one of the channels being recorded, record two channels simultaneously when the TV set is not in use, record two channels at the same time and watch a previously recorded programme and record a TV series automatically.
Priced at Rs 8,999, the PVR is a “premium but affordable” service, Kaushik said. It involves a set-top box with an in-built PVR and a hard disk.
For existing subscribers of Tata Sky, the company will announce special schemes and deep discounts as they already own set-top boxes.
The service will be rolled out in a phased manner and be available across the country by the end of the year. It will first be rolled out in 12 big cities and metros and then go on to more places including tier-II towns, Kaushik said.
