I was in a local supermarket this week and saw a digital set top box for tamil programming.
This is the box if you were wondering –>[easyazon_link identifier=”B00XRG5PYA” locale=”UK” tag=”httpwwwunlock-21″]Lebara Tamil One Year Subscription with Set-top Box included (Tamil, Black)[/easyazon_link].
Anyway, as convenient as it is, it seemed relatively expensive, more so because when i looked up the subscription prices it was £14.99 a month. No tamil programming should be anywhere near that price (when you consider you can get HBO for that).
So, i thought i would see if there are any services and sure enough there is a service already covered comprehensively on this site that allows you to watch tamil language programming, and channels such as star vijay.
Watch Tamil TV Outside India on Hotstar
I have previously written about Hotstar on the following subjects
- Watch Hotstar outside India
- How to pay for Hotstar outside India
- The cheapest way to watch HBO
- Watch the Premier League for less than $3
- Cheapest way to watch Game of Thrones
What Tamil TV is available
Here is a selection http://www.hotstar.com/movies/languages/tamil/
the biggest difference between the tamil tv box noted above, and the Hotstar offering is simply live tv.
However, given the time difference between India and the UK (+5.30) arguably the difference is redundant. Prime time TV everywhere is Thursday at 9pm. But 9pm in india is 3.30pm in the afternoon in the UK.
Hotstar offers live sports programming, at regular times for international sports, but other than that, surely it makes sense to watch on demand content instead?
I use my Apple TV box to watch Hotstar in the UK, but any android box will work, as will a phone, laptop or pc. Even an Android TV. All you need is to spot]f your location.
If you do not already own a suitable device, I would recommend you buy any budget Android TV Box with a quad core processor and 2gb memory. If you buy a cheap box, it will likely have only 1gb and you will be sorry and you WILL be buying another within a year! Just trust me on this.
Here are some pretty cheap options
