      Closing Vendors Only section   06/11/2017

      The Vendors Only section on IVG was started at a time when games retail and e-commerce were pretty much non-existent in India. But with the growing popularity of e-commerce players like Amazon and Flipkart and specialist retailers like Games the Shop, we don't feel a section like this serves much purpose anymore. And even small and new businesses now have easy access to payment gateways and social media to promote their businesses. We've also been noticing a lack of activity in the section over the last year or too. That's not even taking into consideration all the times we've allowed access to vendors who either don't stay in business long enough, or use IVG to commit fraud and cheat members.   So in view of the above, we've decided to close the Vendors Only section from June 30. Starting July, the section will be removed, along with all the threads and posts within it. All users currently part of the IVG Authorised Vendor group, will be moved to the Members group.   That brings us to the topic of how to approach/deal with businesses on IVG.   IVG was started as a community that is for gamers first, so we don't want to see the forums flooded with retailers, rental services, etc using this community for free advertising. So as things stand, retailers will not be allowed to sell their products or promote their businesses on IVG.   Members who come across useful services or retailers that the rest of IVG ought to know about can use the Game Deals section to start a discussion, but this is not to be used by businesses themselves. IVG Staff will close any topics that come across as advertising.   If any would like to use the forums to talk about their business, they would need permission from admins first (you can write to staff via the Contact Us link at the bottom of the forums).

Airtel enters high definition arena, launches set-top boxes

 

Airtel digital TV, the DTH arm of Bharti Airtel, is launching its High Definition service, with set top boxes (STBs) priced at Rs 2,840, further fuelling the price war in the sector.

 

Its competitors like Tata Sky, Dish TV, Reliance BIG TV and Sun Direct have already launched their high definition (HD) services at various price points to attract new subscribers.

 

"Airtel digital TV HD will be available at Rs 2,250 for our existing customers choosing to upgrade and Rs 2,840 for all new customers," Bharti Airtel Director and CEO (DTH) Ajai Puri said.

 

HD transmissions offer better picture and sound quality compared to standard definition (SD) transmission. HD set-top boxes (STB), which offer wide-angle viewing, are considered particularly suitable for watching sporting events and action movies.

 

"As of now, subscribers will get access to ESPN's HD feed of the FIFA World Cup for Rs 99, but we will add other HD channels over the next few months," he said.
