we bought a BIG TV connection on the 2nd of September 2008. We were pormised that the installation would be done in 48 hours, the and the work order number given to us is [protected]. The Set top box was installed after 7 days. We could watch the TV till 16th night of September. After that there was a black screen display and there was nothing visible on the TV Screen. We made the first complaint on the 17th of September at 7:30 AM 2008, We were promised that the issue would be resolved within 48 hours. Since then every day we are contacting the customer care of BIG TV at[protected]. We were given a compliant # 76015207. The customer care people promised us that the issue would be resolved by the Engineer who come and would visit us. On 21nd we spoke to a manager called Joshua and he promised that the issue would be resolved by 22nd of September 2008 10 AM in the morning. We have a call recorded and the manager also said we could take the conversation as a piece of evidence to the consumer court. On 22nd Sep 2008 we contacted the customer care again as there was no response from their side, and spoke to a manager called Ashwini from Bangalore Customer Care Center. She again made a promise to get the issue resolved by the 23rd. On 23rd of September we called back the Customer Care of Reliance BIG TV as there was no action take till then and spoke to a Represantative called Asha Reddy and she took a new complaint and she took it for the remote which is not having any problem in reality. The complaint # is 76456915. When ever We call the customer care of BIG TV the Reponse is very RUDE and ARROGANT. They promise us 24-48 hours time and have been promising the same for the past 15 days. This issue is still not resolved and the date today is 02nd of October 2008. WE WANT JUSTICE.
WE ARE WASTING OUR TIME AND ENERGY. We have invested 1990/- RS on this and not getting the value for our money. MENTAL AGONY and PHYSICAL STRESS. CAlling the Customer care for Reliance BIG TV and in return getting insulted.

BIG TV — After Installation of the big TV ! you can just watch black screen

I had a big TV installation within 48 hrs and could able to view all the channels for 2 days. The installation was done on 18 th of september. After 2 days, I realised Big TV is a Junk TV.
After 2 days there was no response from TV setup box. I can see only black TV screen. I registered a complaint with customer care with complaint no. 76296940 for the installation setup which has simcard no.[protected]. They say that within 48 hrs, It will be resolved. But it is been already 7th dayrunning and still waiting for the servcie engineer to turn up my side. I called to customer care for more than 10 times but without any progressive. They just say that by tommorow eveing it will be fixed. As you know tommorrow never ends...and they give some false promise to connect to their senior manager to assist me and finally they disconnect the call. They never give a proper response.I have a list of customer executives with whom I had a chat. Here we go...
Praveen and many more...

Please don't buy Big TV DTH srevice.It is harassment experience.
I agree with you Mahesh, I too had a same problem and it had happend more than 10 days, I daily call them and they tell the same old story, that they will fix it with in 48 hrs.

I say never buy a reliance BIG-TV.

Dear Mr. Anil Dhirubhai Ambani,

Reliance is good and Big-TV is good and you should be proud that you have launched first MPEG-4 DTH(is the reason why I switched to your DTH from Tata Sky)in India, but your service and customer support is not good or 'BIG'. Reliance might have millions of customers, but every customer is unique. Please keep them satisfied as best as you can do. Customers are paying money for the service and I know reliance is not giving DTH services as a charity bassis.

Thank your sir.
set top box
He he he he! Do you think Reliance really bothers about your complaints? Not at all. They already have your money now, so why will they care? Reliance mobile, reliance internet, and now this reliance Bigtv. All Reliance products but backed by worst customer service. Reliance ADAG group has highly inefficient and even corrupt managers at the district level. There is no accountability. Whether dealing with customers or local vendors, they really insult you. I have bad experience with Reliance, as i was an advertizing vendor for Reliance at Mysore and they got work done by me and did not pay. Anil's Reliance ADAG group needs to learn about customer service from elder brother Mukesh, as they have not learnt it. Its not technology but only good customer service which counts in the longterm.
I too have the same problem mentioned above. This all occured when i tried to upgrade by Manual software upgrade.

Complaint was given on 22nd oct. Its been about 10 days now. still no response from their end. Tired of calling CC every day, which they are saying that it will be done as wearlier as possible, no action till now. My set top box is not responding. I even tried doing the things that mentioned by jagesh. I can get to the first installation screen can view the preview channel, but fails when i try using the menus(Ch +).
Can any one know from where i can download the STB software from?
Worst consumer service by BIG tv .I ll call it a SICK tv.i m from bangalore.I have lodged a complaint on 22 oct that i have problem with my setup box its been restarting(intially got a message to subscribe after that it got blank and the setup box is restarting) .My smart card Number is[protected].Daily i have been calling them for past 15 days but in vain.Nobody is responding properly.They making the customers to suffer without updating the personal information(for some time they told that we have not updated your information "agar bigtv update nahi kiya tho customer kya karega uska service kyon rok detey hy, ey kya policy hy "very stupid", after that they told me that your issue is on high priority(Might have kept some stars on the complaint number), recently they has taken a new complaint and are telling to wait for another 48 hrs see how stupid they are, without rectifying the previous problem they have taken a new complaint .If i ask about the status they will talk about new complaint and tell to wait for 48 hrs see how these people are cheating the customer.For getting the connection they made us to wait for 10 days if u get a problem they will make us wait for 15 days or more may be months).To my wonder they even changed My name to another in their database tell that it is temporary name "Shocking".If i ask for cancellation they will give a stupid answer to ask dealer.Even the team leaders are not dealing with the problems properly and they are not escalating the issues.Every time i call the Customer care they have been telling that your problem will be rectified soon.They always get away from the problem (i have talked with team leaders i.e Naveen and Gopinath about my problem long back but these fellows didnt even assure me when my problem is going to be rectified (One of two has also given a promise that it will be done soon "very childish").i tried to talk with these guys for the past two days either of them is coming into line.The CC people tell that (1)he is not on the floor, (2)he is gone to meeting.(3)He had gone to lunch.(4)Some time he{TL} just say hello and terminate the call, at last they will tell (5)He had left the office.And to my surprise today i talked to lady of cc she tells that i m joined just now i need some training please call after sometime."created a shock wave in my back".Duniya bar ka kahaniya sunatey hy ey log.Jo ey connection liya woh mar gaya.Very very dissapointed with the customer care service .I dont know when my problem will be rectified.


This is really a stupid company and PRODUCT in INDIA !
BIGTV is a JUNK set top Box !
I have taken this JUNK BOX on 1 OCT 2008 !
It's usual for that BOX to create problem as i said its JUNK !
I usually get screens like "please subscribe the channel "
When i call the Stupid customer Care, they tell me some steps to reset the JUNK box !
I got this problem 4 times from day i took connection[within a month] !
Now i got a permanent problem, even after RESET steps the screen "please subscribe the channel" still comes and no channel is accessible !
I logged a complaint NO: 80283750 on 14th of November ! Even after a week its not resolved !
Now i felt not only SETTOP BOX is JUNK even CUSTOMER CARE IS JUNK !
There is a big BUG in the process !
We register a complaint ! they forward it to back end technical team ! Now what would you expect a response regarding the complaint ! There is nothing like that in the whole process and even the technical support team numbers are not given for direct contact !

I heard of MR Dirubhai AMBANI and the way he helped the Middle class people ! Now his Son ANIL AMABANI is literally snatching Money from Middle class with his Stupid Promises like BIGTV!

BIG TV Customer Care Team
I regret to inform you the poor response from BIG tv in respect of a
technical complaint lodged with them

About two weeks back, I have lodged a complaint regarding the
Malfunctioning of Set Top Box in respect of my Big TV connection No
[protected]. It was after my repeated reminders over phone and thru e
mail a technician was sent on 5th day of lodging the complaint.

When the same was attended, a SUB STANDARD AND SECOND HAND SETTOP box
was provided that too after charging Rs 350/- from my account. This
box has showing complaint from day one and a new complaint was
registered on 29/06/2010. Even after the lapse of nearly one week,
there was no response from you even though I have reminded thru e
mails and over phone,

Post your Comment
