New Satellite TV service in DR Including Internet?
I have heard this now from two different people, Supposedly costs RD$ 1800.00 Pesos per month plus tax's.
Doe's anyone know the full story and what Company is providing this service?
No Mike, I don't think this one is Sky Dominicana that's been around for a while now, because when I was paying my telephone bill, a guy in front of me was threatening to cancel his Internet service with Codetel as soon as the new kid on the block get's set up. And a friend of mine stated that someone they new were going to sign the contract this weekend...
Wait a bit longer to commit to any service provider now.
By the end of the year 4 new systems will be up and running in the DR...
A local group is also doing some heavy negotiating with DirecTV to bring the full services to DR.
Same goes for internet services!
Indotel has already approved 17 fast track licenses and open competition via co-pay of already established service providers.
The people that are talking about getting the new service refer to the "trials" being run by several of the startups in the country. Some areas will get services earlier on, while others will see full services within 6 to 12 months.
If you plan to buy a TV or import it to the DR, go for a flat panel HDTV LCD or newer system. You'll need it to get your money worth!
Pichardo, I am very much interested in HDTV.Please tell me if they will offer any 1080p channels or if they all will be on the old format, 720p?
Also, how many HD channels can we expect to get from these providers?
