  • Sorry, not posting an e-mail address. I am an American living in the U.S. My husband is from India. We want to watch Indian serials online or somehow. Cable is prohibitively expensive; can't get satellite signal due to trees, buildings, etc., so online seems the only option. What choices are there available that actually work reliably and are not real expensive? I live in a major East Coast city. I can watch online by searching/clicking on links online, but my husband is completely computer illiterate and can't manage to do that successfully without clicking on the wrong thing and getting hopefully misdirected and lost. I'm looking for something he can handle that doesn't require my constant presence to click on things.

  • ^^ There are many websites which provide live feed of many popular Indian TV channels. Just search for them on Google like "watch indian tv channels" and then you can bookmark that page in your browser. Now your husband can open that bookmarked link anytime in browser and watch TV channels.

  • I recently bought Tata Sky connection and while installing the dish, they setup their remote to Universal remote which means I can access TV and Setup box both using their single remote. But since then my TV remote is not working at all. I have Samsung 40F5000 model and I often watch movies using USB or External HDD but now TV remote is not working, so I can't use those TV features. I have tried to reset the Tata Sky remote to factory settings, but i am still able to use 'univ' button for starting/shutting the TV which means Tata Sky remote is not getting reset. Could you help me to resolve this problem as Tata Sky people are also not able to help on this. Thanks.
