The new operator, which will initially launch the DTH broadcasting in the metropolitan areas, will also cover the entire country gradually, he said. The picture quality provided by RealVU will be much better than that of analogue cable TV, he hoped.
RealVU will provide the best picture quality and sound to the viewers’ at the most affordable price. Approximate monthly bill of the DTH will be Tk 300, where the subscribers will get over 100 channels with more than 26 Bangla language channels and many international majors including five HD channels, according to a press release.
