Tata SKY Now Offering MPEG4 STBs

Tata Sky set top boxes which are also compatible with MPEG4 compression although the current service remains in MPEG2.

Tata Sky cannot shift right now to MPEG-4 because millions of its existing customers are still using the older generation MPEG-2 STBs . The company is probably hoping that in a year or two, most of their existing customers would upgrade to this new STB's thus enabling it to switch to the more efficient broadcasting standard.
