In my childhood days National Channels like DD-1, DD-2 easily appears on your TV screen when you fix up a antenna on roof but now its is hardly available even if you goes to buy a antenna in market for your home use, it will be not available. At that time generally whole family sees Ramayan and Mahabharat and a movie on Sundayat Black & White screen.
Then comes the concept of cable TV means the local shopkeeper who put up a wire network in and around your locality and charge some amount from you on monthly basis. You can watch different channels on colour screen.
Now the latest concept is of set-top box which requires more money.
In last two years many new private big players entered into entertainment arena of DTH (Direct to home) satellite TV. Some of them are :Airtel
Reliance Big TV
They are giving many offers to customers through various schemes and plans.
But a common people who do not have have the money to buy set-top box and can not afford to pay monthly subscription charges, will how get his part of slice of entertainment.
The question is that when other traditional method of entertainment are not available or out of reach of common man the new cheap media TV is also going out of his hands so what will be the ultimate scenario.
