Will SCV offer affordable service?

Have you guys noticed this new channel called Sony Pix? It’s is the only English movies channel I get and it is pretty good. Since they began showing pictures, I have watched All the Usual Suspects and Philadelphia.
. In CASed Chennai, watching movies on TV isn’t easy unless you are the kind to watch old B&W Tamil movies on KTV.

So Sony Pix has come a big relief for me since I don’t have a set top box. I am sure most of Chennai too can’t afford a STB. Who can? The damn thing costs around 3000 bucks. Now that the SC has ordered the implementation of CAS – Conditional Access System – in all the metros by December, we can look forward to SCV reducing the price of a STB. In Delhi, according to IBN report, the rent of a STB can be as low as Re 1. Cable operators have already come forward to do this and it would lovely for the SCV to do this too. But for a monopoly, such things can be difficult.

    Right now, nobody gives a damn about CAS as it is implemented only in Chennai. We, being, “south-indian” in nature, have not voiced our protests strong enough for this nonsense to end. I am now eagerly waiting for other places to be CAS-affected before everybody starts protesting and/or reduction of prices here in Chennai.
    Btw, SCV relayed football WC as well as the recent one day series in WI. So, are buyers of CAS losers??
