Yes. These all are paid services. They need an IPTV box like Roku etc. They have become an alternative to cable/dish network /direct tv. You need a high speed Internet though.

http://www.mallulink.com streams Indiavision TV,ManoramaNews TV,Shalom TV etc (Malayalam TV's) free of cost ! Also Tons of other entertainment stuff (TV programs/Cookery Shows/Kids programs/youtube hits etc). Good deal for NRI mallu's !
DO NOT subscribe watchindia. This company is a big scam and it took me 3+ months with AMEX disputes to get refund. Worst customer service and quality. Stay away from them!

DISHIPTV is a exception, all others are illegal distributions of the Indian TV channels.
I am all for a good deal but do not want to encourage piracy.

I second this. They are scam none of the shows are live. They must be downloading onto their servers from somewhere and then distributing it. There is a reason that DISHWORLDIPTV is a bit expensive then others, Because it is legit and all the show are live. You might end up paying a few hundred dollars more over the span of a year then other services but it is well worth it. Again do not under any circumstances go for WATCHINDIA.TV. big big scam.

Tata sky + Vulkano information
GUYS, Found some information on Tata sky + Vulkano / sling box. May not be the right solutions for every kind of person on this forum
1) Tata sky Connection in India 2) Internet connection in India with good upload speed and Band width 3) Vulkano / sling box connected to tata sky in India 4) Power supply ( uninterrupted ???? he he he ) [ Vulkano is 100-240 Volts rated] 5) A nice PC with HDMI in US which can control the Vulkano remotely 6) Investment on Vulkano device + Tata sky + Internet connection in India
1) Vulkano box --> $170.00 One time (Midrange device) 2) Tata Sky --> $ 100.00 Yearly (Lot of option ,just putting an average) 3) Internet (India) --> $ 100.00 yearly (Approximate with Rs 250/PM average) 4) PC /Laptop in US --> $ 500.00 One time ( if you don't have one with HDMI out etc)
So clearly there is a $200 to $700 investment upfront as well as average $20 monthly running cost.
The above are the requirements / investments. Then comes, setup in India with help of Vulkano support team as well testing this from US. So there is a co-ordination issue here. You need to have geeks on both ends of the world.
If you are not device savvy or have people with no tech skills back home or you have no family back in India to subscribe to Tata sky, this is not for you.
Here is a link to the internet forum with the above setup details.
oh well, @dealanil was already referring to my blog post/experience above anyway.. thanks @dealanil
in summary, here is how it works -
1) Buy a Vulkano or Sling (I got vulkano platinum at $99 on a sale).. The power adapter supports 110v-240v -- so no additional step-up transformer is required !!!! 2) attach the vulkano to your set top box in india -- assuming you have an internet connection there - this is like Vonage, it *needs* internet connection AND a decent upload speeds in india -- i have my vulkano connected to tata sky set top box and to internet (airtel 2Mb download/unlimited data package) -- remember, the download doesnt matter .you need decent upload speeds for better remote viewing 3) configure the vulkano in india -- setting up over wifi or ethernet and the remote (i had to select tata sky as remote) .. configuring proper remote is very very very important because that is exactly mapped to the pc player running on a remote PC (next step) 4)run pc player application remotely (PC/MAc/iphone/android device) -- i run vulkano's PC player remotely here in the USA on a laptop connected via HDMI To my 50" TV and i have had pretty good experience in terms of viewing so far.. i control the channels etc by a RF based wireless keyboard w/trackball (IOGear)
best of all, tata sky currently has a offer where it gives second set topbox 'free' (incl. installation) - am planning on getting that and set it as a dedicated box for remote viewing only...
lastly, i get decent viewing experience at upload speeds above ~260kbps -- anything below that, the video stutters a bit and quality deteriorates....
bottomline, what will an 1-time investment of $99 get me ?? -- all the channels on my tata sky package back in india.. (I am considering the recurring internet charges in india is something that i need not add, in my case as i have it already)
oh another thing - i went for vulkano and not sling as i read across internet that sling boxes have some capacitor problem and die very quickly.. currently i have vulkano running for about a month+ or so in bangalore without any hiccups (no UPS/stabilizer being used) - survived various blackouts and power fluctuations.. but it perhaps is too early to comment on its life..
lastly, sling very recently started selling their boxes back in india, but a bit pricey (compared to the dollar equivalent in USA)
