Evil is Evil. Lesser, greater, middling...makes no difference. The degree is arbitrary.

The definition's blurred. If I'm to choose between one evil and another, I'd rather not choose at all.

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.

Wait wait wait... :chair:

Wait :chair:

You mean to say i can keep the previous SD STB and use it for my other TV (lets call it TV2).

Get this new HD STB for my primary TV (TV1) and it will give me the HD pack alongwith the ANNUAL PACK i had opted for in my previous SD HTB into the new HD STB??? :P

TV2 mein kya aayega fir? Doordarshan... :ack: :good: Explain these things as you would explain it to a 3 year old kid... :chair: Slowly... :fear:
