After a long wait for its HD subscribers, Tata Sky HD finally gave some reasons to cheer. Tata Sky has now launched Star Movies HD, Star World HD and Star Gold HD channels.
Tata Sky Launched its HD services during the FIFA world cup 2010 and ever since it has been providing Discovery HD, Nat Geo HD and some Live sports in HD. Recently, when India’s first English movies HD channel, Movies Now HD was launched, everyone expected it to come on Tata Sky HD. But, Tata Sky disappointed by not including the channel. It instead started with Star Plus HD, which in reality was an upscaled version of the normal channel. Now, even Star Plus true HD has been launched.
Now that Tata Sky has launched the Star group channels in HD, India HD viewers won’t really care about missing out on Movies Now. This is where the Times group missed its chance, because if they had collaborated with Tata Sky on time, Movies Now HD could have gained a lot of market share. But as of now, as Tata Sky subscribers are already getting Star Movies HD, they won’t desperately care about Movies Now HD.
Just hope that Tata Sky starts to show the EPL matches and F1 live telecast in HD as well pretty soon.
