Watching live TV on the go has become the new trend these days, thanks to cheaper 4G data plans offered by Reliance Jio, Airtel, and Vodafone Idea (Vi). Tata Sky, the largest private DTH player in India, currently has more than 35 percent market share.
With the gradual transition of users from regular satellite TV to OTT and live TV streaming apps, Tata Sky has brought its users a digital platform called Tata Sky Watch, which offers live TV, On Demand movies, TV shows, and much more to its subscribers. This lets you watch live TV online, either via the mobile app or on your PC. If you are a Tata Sky subscriber, you can take advantage of this feature for free. Here’s how.
