I have a Tata Sky SD (Standard Definition) DTH STB at home. I already have an HD LCD TV. So, much does it cost start using HD channels? What will be the monthly recurring charges?

As of January 2016, TataSky HD basic STB costs ₹1800/-, which includes standard installation.

This includes

  • 10mtrs of cable
  • dish
  • LNB
  • 1080i capable HD Set-Top-Box. 

There is nothing called HD pack in TataSky, where you get all the HD (high-definition) channels. To start viewing HD channels, you need to pay monthly HD-Activation fee of ₹175. Once you activate this, you will get view the channels that you have already subscribed to in your base-pack. DO NOT ASSUME YOU WILL GET ALL HD CHANNELS

So, this is like, paying ₹2100 extra per year only to enable HD content that you have already paid for to view in SD.

In summary, your monthly recurring cost is ₹175 per month.
