With Dish TV’s Direct-to-Car satellite television hitting the market, one can catch live entertainment programmes even while one is driving.

Dish TV provides a mobile DTH unit, which comes in two models worth Rs 1,49,000 and Rs 79,000. It can be fitted on the rooftop of SUV’s or buses.

It has a special built-in roving antenna, which can receive DTH signals even when the vehicle is o the move. The two antennas you can opt from are Speed Ray and T5. Speed Ray weighs 25 kg and can receive hundred channels all over India while T5 weighs 3-4 kg and can receive seventy channels but can only be used in select states.

You can choose the TV screen you want to install in the car, the price of which may vary, starting from Rs 10,000. You can also install more than one screen in the car with a separate set top box for each.
