MTV India On Direct TV again

Its funny that DirecTV starts including MTV India in ints package and never informs its customers. Heck ! tehy could have a got a lot of goodwill from subscribers like me. ANyway I was very happy that MTV channel is now back and its so cool that I can see ads that are targetted for a Indian audience. BRU Cappucino flavor who ever heard of this before.

MTV India makes me nostalgic. From 1992 to 1997 I enjoyed the spread of Stellite TV and the explosion of TV channels in India. It was truly a revolution, there was not even a law governing satellite TV when it started. If you were cosy enough with the cable operator you could ask him to swithc the satellite to a channel of your choice.

Well now I am at the mercy of Comcast and DirecTV. DirecTv is the better evil. They have moderately priced packages. I subscribe to Hindi Direct which includes Star Plus, Star One , Star News, NDTV, THe Cricket channel, DoorDarshan National.

When I signed up for the DirecTV Hindi Direct package it included a chanel called MTV Desi. This was a channel geared to the Expat Indian and Indian American population. Then came the devastating news that the Channel was being discontinued from DirecTV.

I love watching the comedy shows on both comcast and DirectV

From Washington DC, Emirates is an outlier, it flies in the morning at 10.55 from Washington Dulles Airport (IAD) and reaches Dubai at around 8.30 a.m. Other flights, Etihad, Qatar and flights with European stopovers take off after 9 p.m at night. I love this timing but it does cause a disagreement in my house. My wife prefers to fly Eithad due to the timings. My wife's viewpoint is that it is difficult to sleep on the Emirates flight since it starts in the morning. I enjoy the morning flight. My game plan is to sleep less for a few days to my Emirates flight. Once on the flig
