DishTV is the first DTH operator in India. DishTV is a division of Zee Network Enterprise(Essel Group). Dish TV has 43 "Dish truHD", the so called HD Channels. DishTV uses MPEG-2 digital compression technology, transmitting from NSS-6 Satellite at 95.0 deg. E. Dish DTH was launched in 2004. Dish TV has the facility to offer it DTH Satellite Services on buses, trains and aircrafts. Dish TV has the largest number of subscribers in India. As of 30 June 2011, Dish TV has 11.2 million customers from the total of about 35.5 million DTH subscribers in India.
On 28 Dec. 2010 Dish TV announced that they have taken additional transponders on Asiasat Satellite. Since NSS-6 and AsiaSat Satellites are positioned close by, it allows existing customers to get the signal from Asiasat also, although an additional LNB has to be installed on the existing dish. What this means is that Dish TV has more transponders to transmit Channels. Since Dish TV uses the older MPEG-2 technology, DishTV needs to increase its transponder capacity at great expense due to the fact that MPEG-2 compression only allows half the number of channels per transponder when compared to those using MPEG-4 Compression.
