Dish TV offers live in-train services on Maharaja Express

Indian direct-to-Home (DTH) company Dish TV is now offering live TV on the luxury train Maharaja Express.

The company is using Gilat mobile satellite antennas to enable live TV viewing on the move, and every seat has a dedicated set-top-box.

Salil Kapoor, COO, Dish TV said: “As a pioneer and market leader of the DTH industry, it is a proud moment for us to take TV entertainment to a completely unprecedented level by bringing the live TV experience to one of the top 25 luxury trains in the world – the Maharaja Express. We continue to provide the latest technology through our constant innovation to the consumers.”

In 2010, Dish TV launched its mobile train technology on the Palace on Wheels, the Royal Rajasthan on Wheels and two other luxury trains.
