    Hi,

    I was searching on how to get Hindi TV Channels in US and I came across two sources. DirectTV and WatchIndia - Indian TV online with live Indian TV Channels

    Has anyone tried any of these? watchindia.tv says that it telecasts channels live from India. Does DirectTV telecast live from India or is delayed by a week or so?

    Please do reply,
    Thanks
    -AJ

    Hi AJ,

    We have Dish Network at home. We have all the Hindi Channels and some other regional ones too. From what I understand they are not exactly "live" and neither they are week's old telecast.

    What I mean is they maintain the prime time as in like say "abc" serial is shown in India at 9pm on Tuesday night, we in US will also get the same serial at 9pm US time Tuesday. So actually they just maintain the time difference between India and US. Some of the News Channels though are Live. I do not know exactly which ones. I have right now at home STAR TV, STAR +, ZEE & SONY. These are as per the time difference only. I am sure the news channels are live.


    I believe it the same for Direct TV.


    Jaya

    Thanks Jaya.
    It seems Dish has more channels than DirecTV or watchindiatv. I guess I will order it.

    Regards

    Good Morning.

    We have AT&T U verse and pay 35 dollars for 4 Hindi Channels.

    I heard it depends upon where you live. Someone told me that you can watch online for free.

    Good luck.

    I just posted on another thread for Malayalam channels. I have a Roku and you can get Hindi channels through them. Go to their page and check the pacakages from each channel on international for India. South India seems to be a little more represented but Hindi channels are still there. Dont' kow if it will meet your needs. Lots of free content worldwide on Roku.

    DishTV has an IP TV version for areas that do not allow dish to be installed. It has a set topbox kind of thing I guess...

    DISH Network IPTV

    Check it out! They have 17 Hindi channels
