  1. I hope DD will continue to be a free host for its viewers and do not become like a greedy private operators by switching to CAS.
    DD is the only channel providing to poor villagers and remote location residents. That should not be lost by them. Host all 104 channels FREE.

  2. Do fast we are waiting for long time

  3. Please add More Channel at DD Direct so unnamed charges can save such a middle class community. DTH Operator are stoling innocent peoples at day by day higher rate at few channel.
    I think No need after DD Direct and ABS SATALITE Service.

  4. Harek set top box company ko ,koi recharge kare ke na kare free to air channels, dd ki deni compalsurry honi mera dd or government ko suzav he.

  5. Very recently (since 2 days) Kalaignar TV, Siripoli, Vasanth TV have gone OFF from FTA channels from DD-FreeDish. If some one knows how to retune these channels in DD-Freedish, they may post it in the web.Thanks
