Airtel Digital TV is one of the leading DTH service providers in India with more than 16.6 million customers experiencing a world of seamless content & connectivity. Our Direct-To-Home (DTH) platform offers both standard and high definition (HD) digital TV services with Dolby surround sound. We currently offer a total of 645 channels including 85 HD channels, 7 international channels and 4 interactive services.

Airtel DTH’s journey, has been the journey of the Indian consumer, maturing from the terrestrial TV to cable TV and now offering digitized high definition (HD) and non-linear content. Airtel DTH has always kept the customer at the heart of all its operations and it is the adoption of this customer centric approach that has inspired Airtel DTH to rapidly adapt and be an innovation leader in the industry.

Quite early on, when the non-linear OTT content was still in its infancy and nowhere close to becoming the juggernaut it is today, Airtel DTH sensed the pulse of the consumers and invested heavily in building a product that would not only ease the consumer’s pain of toggling between multiple devices & multiple remotes, but also provide a world-class seamless experience to consuming both linear and non-linear content on the biggest screen in the house – the Airtel Xstream Box!

With the telecom industry rapidly evolving and the environment undergoing a structural shift, Airtel DTH is once again, today, playing a pivotal role in Airtel’s overall vision of providing its consumers with a cohesive content & connectivity experience.
