An Indian living in America or any other foreign country for that matter misses the home and his people most. The next thing he misses is the Entertainment. Though there is a lot of stuff on the internet and people sending pictures all the time, the true Indian entertainment- the movies, the soap opera, the comedy shows that irradiate the cultural flavor and many other kinds of entertainment which are native to Regional India are mostly unavailable on a daily basis without hard work.
Many of these things are available on the largest video library Youtube but they are all recorded and contain only chunks of the full due to copyright issues. So, for an Indian who comes home from work or for his/ her parents who are less likely to search the internet for regular tv programs, some source that delivers everything right onto the television is the only option that is comfortable.
There are only some networks that deliver all the Indian channels live to different internet-enabled devices including Television. And the best of them are YuppTV and Sling TV prevalent in the US and Canada regions. There is a bit of dilemma in the people about selecting the best one among the two. So, Here is a review about both of these networks to let you decide and select the best one between the both.
