of active services and new consumer offers available in the market, the subscribers have a win win situation. dishtv has always worked towards maximising its viewer‘s delight and will continue to do so".

Commenting on the caricature launched by, dishtv to flag off the World Cup campaign, dishtv VP marketing Anjali Malhotra says, "The mascot lends a face to the brand that is warm, consumer friendly and trustworthy. Moreover he seems to simplify an otherwise perceived technology product apart from adding an element of fun to our communication as we are but, an entertainment provider to Indian homes. We are sure that the consumers will warm up to him."


As far as Tata Sky is concerned the company‘s MD and CEO Vikram Kaushik says, "Tata Sky is offering free subscription for three months and has roped in actor Hrithik Roshan for its new marketing campaign."


He explains that as part of this campaign select viewers who have subscribed before 15 April will get to watch the World Cup final match with him. In adition the company is extending the free pricing policy to the second, third and fourth television set within a consumer‘s household.
