Desi Streaming

Now, i got some suggestions from Aneeta Pai some time back. Pasting those below this.

I used to have Yupp TV till a couple of weeks back. Their streaming was messy. it was clear while it streamded. it used to stop every 15 minutes.
There is no other desi streaming on the WD media player.

I earlier used to stream Yupp TV from Roku (have a box from 2009), but it does not work.

Wanted to check besides the Desi boxes suggested by Aneeta, what comes on Apple TV. all is needed are some news Channels and some Gult Channels.

I am happy with whatever comes from the rabbit antenna, the baccha log love what comes from netflix, but the better half is terribly bored.

and I had done a detailed survey a 2 months ago and had finally had bought BOOM,.. ( price / coverage efficiency wise ) Initial costs about 220 around USD,.. Jaddoo I think is 170-185,.. BTV is 260+ - you need to search on ebay’s search box and find the right cheaper guy,…but again,.. give them call and ask anything you choose,…

Mind you,….. It’s just a box that just uses internet webs urls to convert them so that they can feed it to your TV/Monitor by proper scrambling,.. so it’s not their guarantee or responsibility what / which channels you may get, nor they are supplying you the channels like startv, Sony, Colors,... etc.,…. ( like Comcast or Verizon ) they may continue / discontinue any channel serial, add/omit which ythey always do,.. Etc,.. ( It’s like buying a magicjack piece and complaining them,.. that no one is calling me from India. Hello,.. all they do is make your PC's sound card, in compitable like regular phone service,...and whoever calls you or do not,... is not their responsibility,.. ) ) but overall they still have much coverage of all major desi channels, they take some legal/illegal contracts scans their web addresses and convert them at 720pixel and put for you to watch,…and scanning from major desi channels and provide max coverage possible,.. and also have HW and BW movies,… but still no one is a official supplier to you officially, of any broadcasts guaranteed or so,.

So before you buy any,.. do proper Ques/Ans about what you get,… also they go with jadoo2, 3 and more versions and smtms cancel the old model ones,.. etc,. so always a risk everywhere,..

You may also try these guys if it suits your needs,..

1-630-246-4788 ( Channel live )

1-866-663-7557 ( YUPPTV )

Or,..search surf and call,.. On their web ( Jadoo, BTV, BOOM, Shava plus ) they have tons of dealers phone nos to bargain,..or for questionnaire )

Bomiptv.net, support@boomiptv.com

Boom: 845-290-8883, 713-781-2666, 832-441-2675

BTV : 610-955-7987, 702-425-4288,877-762-5432

Few other guys to inquire
for price and all diff models,. Etc,..
703-928-9082, 647-498-3001,

Goggle search for BOOM TV, B-TV, Jadoo,.. Zenith, Shava Plus,.. and ask them the benefits/disadv. v/s price.

Best thing would be searchbox them in ebay’s search box and call the dealers on their phone nos,…ask them and discuss all diff boxes, price, pros and cons,..

But at present these three/four are main boxes used,.

So many other obseleted,../ merged / renamed. - they do some legal/illegal stealing of certain broadcasts to offer to their customers, smtms out of their contract bought and then,... the box discontinues, goes lawsuits,..again comes out with new a name,...

Jadoo, BTV ( B-TV ) , Shava plus, Zenith,.. ( surf on google and E-bay’s search box, also on their main web sites, many dealers phone nos are there - they all are our Indian guys )

old names: Jalwa/Jalsa, Karishma, ( they obsoleted or merged with new names )

I had done a wide research and finally had bought BOOM box,…. So far so good,.. though I watch Hindi movies on Internet’s other sites as qlty is more sharper there,… but few desi shows and live 24-7 desi flavored TV is a boon for US's hosuehold desi ladies to pass time,..... plus, you pay nothing except one time of buying expense of box,.... and ofcourse your Internet service you must have.

These boxes are for house-wifes mainly, who are at home and day is long, or you are at liquor/Indian grocery store counter and you can watch 24/7 to cut your hours-time… when no customer,...

Jadoo has delayed broadcast ( recorded earlier ),… BOOM has "live" as it the same times, the people there in India watches it ( live) ,….......... BTV is very expensive ( USD 299 ) and also has plus and minuses,..
Just call the people and gain knowledge before you buy any,..

This vdo show how it will look,..

Re: Desi Streaming

First, This is Tau and not Tayi.
  • YUPP is a paid and southie TV so,.. I would just forget it, ( need to pay them monthly ) unless you really need it, and have smthg interesting in it, for you,….
  • Netflix is a garbage and just waste of money,. Rather have a faster intrenet connection,. And watch desi movies on net,.. say einthusan or Sominaltvfilms or other internet web sites,.. Watch Desi TV serials and soaps also at your own time on net and can avoid many services with just a faster connection of the net. Local US libraries have almost all Hollywood new and old movies,.. so put them in queue ( they have orderly advanced computer page and ordering system and will also let you know, when movie will arrive ) and order it free ( online ) and once in a week when you go to library get all org DVDs for HW movies. So,.. for HW movies, depend on Local libraries - works great. _ you can drop back at any library. They have very advanced system.
  • Rabbit ear antenna is a garbage,.. rather inquire the stores for better reception and put at least any wall mounted small antenna outside to have better reception,. And quit that turning the antenna annoyance labor.
  • If have a house-hold wife ( doing no job ) and more elderly people in your house like parents/in-laws, to have pass their time with desi serials and channel ,. Then and then think of buying either,… B-TV, BOOM or Jadoo boxes,…( Only one time buying fees - No monthly fees afterwards ) to have them 24/7 some material to watch,..
Technology is out there,...for better reception and sharper and good qlty TV vision,.. so no need to go with rabbit ear antenna ( prefer dieing rather, before doing that ) , rather go to verizon and Comcast web pages every month,..... And look if they have combined cheap offers for internet and basic TV both combined or so,…and while paying for the internet with a very few aditional bucks with it,.. you may get TV and internet both. Keep on asking them, every month ( via web's live chat or surfing their web pages ) and remember, they have good offers on their online web page than by phone,.. and they can also avoid installation and activation fee if ordered via net / online .

Tau/Pai*,

Though, i have lived many years outside south India, ours is a southie family from a soon to be split region despised my many ECians. The Yupp TV was about $25 a quarter for basic gult channels and my better half was fine with that. i used to catch the nonsense on NDTV thanks to that. Only, the streaming kept failing.

I read the disclaimers you gave earlier on the Boom/Jadoo, and can almost foresee this. I spend all the money and when i have streaming problems, it would always be the issue with the chanels streaming. From what i see on Amazon reviews, Jadoo 2 was better than Jadoo 3.

So, tell me your own experience on Jadoo.

One option i am considering is getting an Apple TV, but want to check here on what exactly you can stream on that (TV9/Etv/ABN Andhrajtyothi is what my better half is interested in).

Netflix works perfectly for my Bachcha log. They have al episodes of Beyblade metal masters, Kicking it and PBS series like Curios George and Super why. They have only Yash CHopra / UTV movies, but i am not expecting too much of bollywood out there. I would use a separate thread by Kallu Pai to post my latest viewings there.



*i have also spent some 4+decades on this planet (so, still you may be Pai!)

Re: Desi Streaming

I dunn’o your needs.

But you are confusing with streaming,… YUPPs is a diff story that they may be sending their own signals which may be poor/strong,…
other pieces are different, where the company does not send any signals of their own,. But they simply find the net available signals from Colors/Star,.. etc available from their internet URLS and convert it with their devices, making it watchable. { IT IS NOT THEIR RESPONSIBILTY TO SEND YOU ANY SIGNALS. THEY ARE JUST charging 200 dollars for that box and related wire devices and that’s it ] So buying desi signals from either netflix and YUPP
v/s using any of those boxes, is a quite different story.

But My ( own theory ) idea is ,
There should not be any monthly charging and that’s what kills me deadly,…
Coz, later,…they raise the prices and fakk you non-stoply also govt rapes you in diff. taxes,..

If the initial price for a roof bigger antenna is 79.99
I would buy and install it, rather than giving 19.99 per mo. to Comcast cable.

If ooma/tk6000 costs 99-150 dollars I have bought those 3+ years ago,.. but now free caling all over the USA and Canada free for the rest of life – no bills at all.

So,..here is what I do,.

Pay only for the internet and watch all desi shows and Hindi movies thro net and also my 3 phones run thro the internet for free.

For English movies, I depend on local library and there are 100s in ques. that came in last 2 years and they are coming slowly and surely for free, as I watch them,..

I would never pay to YUPPS or Netflix, or Comcast ( for desi channels ) . I have BOOM box, but watch it also very little as most stuff is available on net.

Aneetau, got your take on this. Only give your experience with Boom TV, even with your limited viewing.

That is the option we might end up with. Our current apartment allows this, but my neighbor sounded one drawback - If we moved to an apartment that does not allow this, it would not be worthwhile.

If you don't mind, can you please tell me how this works?

Do you have to get a dish connection? Does this work off a Roku Box? Whats your monthly TV bill?

I believe the monthly bill is $10 - 20. It is supposed to work off a Roku, only it does not on my 2009 Roku.

Mots pai, more details please.

No, you don't need to have Dish connection. It works just like Netflix. You can get different packages - e.g. Hindi Mega pack for $14.99/mo for 3 months and then $44.99/mo. If you pre-pay for 4 months, you can get a Roku box for free. That's what I got.
