Mantri Synergy is wired to receive BSNL fiber optic connection.It is the first residential project where BSNL has in place a three-in-one modem that wires the phone, the TV and the broadband. They also provide a wireless router, enabling the use of laptop anywhere in your flat.
BSNL's IPTV has package of channels that doesn't quite meet my preferences. For instance, foreign movie channels we used to get on Hathway package in Mysore are not available here. Nor do we get my mother's favoured Sun TV or my wife's Shankara channel. BBC, CNN, Raj TV attract monthly tariff (of Rs.3 to 5) Poor choice of Tamil channels in MyWay package is attributed to the fact that decisions on choice of channels are taken by company executives located in Gurgaon, and they are unlikely to be all that familiar with the Tamil channels available in Tamilnadu.
Airtel DTH is a cable option that, presumably, offers better choices in this regard. They show Sun TV.
The thing about BSNL IPTV is that you can watch, on demand, selected movies at a price; some old TV shows such as Ramayana, Laughter Challenge and Yeh Jo Hai Jindagi are also on offer on demand. Besides, we have option to watch on demand (for free) what they call lifestyle shows such as Ramdev's yoga demos.
