Excellent picture clarity. Glad I subscribed to HD package.

Vinod RanaSun Direct

Sun Direct is an affordable option for those wishing for decent picture quality. However, the HD channel experience has not been so good. There has been connection issues now and then.

Lokesh GandhiSun Direct

Set Top Box and overall signal strength are good. However, I experienced signal drop for some channels (Star sports, MAA). But overall a good experience.
