Here are the top things to understand and pay attention to while getting a DTH new connection.

It may just happen that a cheaper STB and installation can lead to you choosing a DTH provider who does not provide you the channels of your choice at an affordable price. Before you get a DTH connection, also check for an offer on DTH new connections.

Usually, the STB is differentiated by definition such as Standard Definition (SD), High Definition (HD), or Ultra High Definition (UHD or 4K). You should choose an STB that is compatible with the definition of your TV set.  You can also get additional features such as recording which comes in handy for many customers who don't want to miss their favorite movie, sport, or soap. The modern Airtel Xstream Box also offers a built-in Chromecast, which can convert your regular TV into a Smart TV with the ability to play OTT content such as Netflix and Amazon Prime.

Also, check for the warranty is applicable on the accessories and components such as remote and wires. Usually, all DTH providers give a 1-year warranty with their new STB at an average.

You can give a call to the DTH provider’s customer care number and check at their response time before taking the connection. You can also check their reviews on independent customer review websites.
