Good news for DD Free Dish (DD Direct Plus) users, Doordarshan’s Free Dish may start MPEG-4 stream in April 2016.
New DD Free Dish users may buy FTA MPEG-4 STB’s, but they may not be able to watch MPEG-4 channels as MPEG-4 streams may be encrypted.
For receiving encrypted MPEG-4 channels, STB’s may have to be purchased from authorized distributors. Subscription will still be zero.
All FTA MPEG-4 STB’s will receive MPEG-2 channels as they will be unencrypted.
