One of our favorite pastimes is to watch Television, especially after a hard day’s work. Today, most homes in India have at least one or two TV sets. During Covid-19, with most of us locked indoors, inside our homes, it was Television that offered meaningful entertainment to most of us. Not just that, TV has also evolved as a powerful medium for staying updated with the latest news, live sports events, latest movies being aired, religious, even educational and DIY channels being broadcast now by broadcasters. In other words, TV has something to offer to all family members, with shows being broadcasted in regional languages.
The technologies that help run your TV
Have you ever wondered about what is happening behind the scenes, behind the TV to be precise, for you to watch your loved series and programs uninterruptedly? Most of us don’t. But, it is good to know the different technologies responsible for this seamless flow of data from one corner of the earth to another. A few years back, there was a period when cable television was very popular, just after the Doordarshan era. In the latter, viewers were limited to watching just one government-owned channel, while in the former, the Indian public, for the first time, was exposed to foreign channels, limited though in numbers.
Then came Direct-to-home technology and web streaming services, and the face of the Indian TV industry was changed forever. The first DTH service in India was started in 2003, and there has been no looking back ever since. While the predecessors of Direct-to-Home worked on analog signals that limited the number of channels operators could broadcast, DTH is based on digital technology, enabling operators to broadcast unlimited channels as per the choice of customers. DTH operators offer packages to customers with combinations of channels suiting their preferences. Whichever channels you wish to watch and subscribe to, you can personalize your viewing package to meet your aspirations, choices, and desires.
Enjoying seamless entertainment on your TV
At the backend, though, you need to ensure that your DTH recharge is done on time so that there are no interruptions whatsoever. Is the task of recharge painful or troublesome? Not anymore, because we are slowly and steadily moving towards a cashless economy since the central government announced the Digital India movement. We are all set to become a digitized country, and the payment industry has benefited a lot from this technology.
Today, your DTH service providers like Airtel offer you a convenient and easy Airtel DTH recharge facility. You can use the Airtel website or download the official app to recharge your DTH connection fast and simply. You have the option of downloading a third-party payment or UPI app. There are many such available apps but choose only the best amongst all. Register yourself and connect your bank savings account with the digital wallet or transfer money into the wallet for payment purposes.
Choosing the official app from your service provider vis-a-vis a third-party payment app
Choosing the Airtel app for recharging the DTH connection is a good idea. You can use the same app for recharging your Airtel prepaid mobile and pay the postpaid bills for your smartphone. However, you can use this app only for services offered by Airtel. If you are the consumer of another service provider or you wish to use one single app for recharging your mobile, DTH, paying mobile and utility bills, paying for groceries and food, booking flights and railway tickets, booking a movie or a hotel room, etc. downloading a third-party payment app is the best idea.
