Tata Sky launches +1 HD channel


Tata Sky, the Indian direct-to-home (DTH) service provider, has newly launched a version of its high-definition (HD) service named +1. The new service will enable subscribers to view their favourite shows twice or as catch up if they missed it by an hour.

The +1 HD service will function with one-hour delay, although it will be the same as an HD channel. Tata Sky has created the +1 service only for general entertainment channels in Hindi. These include Colors, Sony Entertainment Television (SET) and Zee TV. Colors HD +1 is available on channel no 148, SET HD +1 is available on channel no 129 while Zee TV HD +1 is available on channel no 142.

Viewers can have access to the +1 services by subscribing to the respective HD available at applicable rates. As part of their subscription, customers of the Ultra Plus HD and Ultra Plus South HD will be able to make the most of the services. The cost of the +1 service is only at 175 INR (2.61 USD) when the corresponding SD channel is subscribed to as part of the base pack.
