Which set top box is cheapest

This means that choosing the DTH provider that offers a lot on a set-top box is likely to save you money and, in some extreme cases, even a month's subscription fee. We made a comparison of all the set-top boxes, what they offer and the retail price along with all applicable discounts, and here's a rundown on what's best.

DishNXT HD Dish TV SetTop Box

Dish TV is one of the most highly regarded DTH companies in the country right now. The DTH provider has continuously provided offers to its consumers to attract more customers. Rightly so, due to the latest introduction, Dish TV appears to be in a bit of a financial trouble even though its Watcho app has performed exceptionally well. 

However, when it comes to set-top boxes, Dish TV lags behind its HD STB, the DishNXT HD STB is priced at Rs 1,590 much more than others in the same range. However, consumers get a lifetime warranty and coupon worth Rs 2,000, as well as a free one-month subscription.

Tata Sky set-top box with bonus offer of Rs 150

The Tata Sky set-top box is priced at Rs 1,499 for the same HD variant as the others listed here, it  comes with a discount of Rs 150 with a code to be paid online. By using a special code provided on the Tata Sky website and paying online, consumers can take advantage of this discount and get the SetTop Box at a cheaper rate. 

It's also worth noting that other Tata Sky set-top boxes remain in the premium range, such as the Binge set-top box, which retails for Rs 2,499 but at a similar discount of Rs 200.

D2h HD SetTop Box price

As for another HD set-top box from D2h, which is another popular company in the DTH segment, the set-top box retails for Rs 1,355. It is worth noting that the D2h STB already has a low retail price and therefore does not come with any offerings. Instead, it offers a Gold HD subscription for one month at no cost with the purchase of the set-top box.

Airtel HD set-top box at Rs 1,300

Finally, the Airtel HD set-top box is the cheapest of the bunch right now and appears to retail for a measly 1,300 rupees. Additionally, Airtel advertises an additional 10% discount that consumers can take advantage of using a special code on the Airtel Digital website. 

This means that new customers will be able to get the cheapest set-top box with an additional 10% price reduction, making the Airtel HD set-top box a clear winner. However, if you choose premium services and add-ons for Android TV, the Airtel Xstream Premium set-top box is still very expensive at Rs 3,298, while the basic version retails for Rs 2,499.
