@remstr, Unifi TV should consider replacing Polimer with Zee Tamil HD and upgrading Colors Hindi to HD version. 

 

Also, is it possible for the team to launch more mini packs like TVB packs, Zee Pack, HBO Pack, Bein Sports Pack and Discovery Pack? Subscribers will have more options to subscribe to more preferred channels instead of increasing the price of current packs or/and limiting to the budget of these packs. My suggestion is as follow:

1) TVB Pack: TVB Jade HD (CH 231), TVB Xing He HD (CH 232) + access to TVBAnywhere+ VOD Zone

2) Zee Pack: Zee Tamil HD (CH 312), Zee Thirai (CH 302), Zee Cinema (CH 331), Zee TV (CH 342) along with access to Zee5 app

3) HBO Pack: HBO HD (CH 401), HBO HITS HD (CH 402), HBO Family HD (CH 403), HBO Signature HD (CH 404), Cinemax HD (CH 405) and access to HBO MAX

4) Discovery Pack: Discovery HD (CH 506), Discovery Science HD (CH 507), Animal Planet HD (CH 508), Discovery Asia HD (CH 509) and Eurosports HD (CH 708) along with access to Discovery+

5) beIN Sports Pack: beIN Sports HD (CH 709), beIN Sports MAX HD (CH 710) and access to beIN Sports CONNECT

 

The prices will be determined based on the cost of the linear channels carriage fee and the subscription fee of the apps. Thank you!

Whattt????

The only channel i watch in UnifiTV is Sony SET.

I already choose Zee5 streaming app after you removed other channel and now you are going to remove the Sony SET...

 

If like that, TM should provide option to us to choose "SonyLIV" streaming app.

 

The "LionsGate Play" streaming app is totally worst... you force us to choose that App.

 

So many useful contents been removed from UnifiTV by TM .

Re: Cessation of Sony MAX, Sony SAB and Sony SET

@namzansar Hmm...a lot of SonyLIV titles can be streamed free on YouTube. Also, Sony India and Zee India will merge and become one huge Indian entertainment company. We'll see whether they will create an app to have all the contents produced by both of them (or continuing with the Zee5 app).

 

As for Lionsgate Play, I know it's not a decent idea to have it compared to other popular apps like HBO GO and Disney+ Hotstar, but the issue is that Astro already signed the exclusive bundle deals with both apps, so what hasn't been taken by Astro is Lionsgate Play. That's why Unifi TV chooses it. Unifi TV may have more apps like Paramount+, HBO MAX and Discovery+ in the near future. But still, these apps may not be part of Ultimate Pack.

Re: Cessation of Sony MAX, Sony SAB and Sony SET

Actually the Lionsgate is ok for me. Cause I watch more Hindi and English. The thing is the BBC is the not very recommend. It's useless. What they should do is replace with SonyLiv.  It's like more Tamil live channels and it's like same as Astro network. Better I purchase TvBox easier. TM plz consider Bollywood (Hindi) channels too.
