They have already taken the 5 transponders vacated by DD's move to INSAT 4B. Each transponders is capable of around atleast 12-13 maybe more depends on the compression technology used by the operator. So be patient and see what happens next with Dish TV they will bring some foreign channels to India i suppose to compete with Tata Sky who is also supposed to come up with some new channels. This will only happen when they stop this free 5-6 months whatever these guys are offering now to entice subscribers. Let the other players come in the market like Bharati, Sun & Reliance things will become more hotter and better for subscribers in the long run i guess.
