Then our parents visit us . When they come here the first thing that we do to keep them feel like they are in India is to get regional channels connection in our TV. Most of our parents watch many serials. The best service that I have seen so far for Indian Channels is from Dishworld. Though I already have a post on it many people are asking me about the cheap and best one for Indian channels. Dishworld not only has a Roku offer also has an introductory offer where you pay only $14.95 for first three months. They also have a Free 48 hr preview where you can try and see if you like it before signing up.
