    You can recharge your connection very easily using credit card:

    1. First create your account on the DishTV web site. You will required your VC number and STB serial number.
    2. Once your account is created, it will be activated within 24 hours (no idea why so long).
    3. Using your VC Number as user-id and your own password, you can log into "My Account" and then click on the "Renew Subscription" or some such link.
    4. Follow step by step.

    p/s. Use an Indian credit card preferably. I am not sure about foreign banks' credit cards. I think, this is because of billing and shipping address on foreign CC will be different. Again, this is my doubt only. I have really no idea.

    Is Dish TV officially supposed to be available in UAE

    I do not think so. My good guess is that it is illegal. For one, every country has the right to censor the content shown. Then there are legal terestrial rights. Finally if it was available in UAE officially then why would it not be easy to recharge out there?

    Many people take DTH connections from here and carry the STB there. There are enough people who can install a dish. The rest is cakewalk.

    This is highly illegal and if the person is caught, hell would feel like heaven, especially in those GCC countries.

    best option would be to call up customer service, or the person who installed Dish TV for you, or another case if you know someone in India who can do a recharge for you then try that.

    Dish TV-NSS6 Footprints


    Though we receive Dish Tv in UAE technically, because of the "spilled off" signal from NSS6 (the satellite which Dish TV uses for their broadcasting), it's illegal. When compared to the rates of the TV oprators here, (Pehla, Etisalat and du), we can afford to have Dish Platinum pack with HD connection!!.

    Dish TV officialy doesnt do any back end support for customer out of India, as they adverstise in their interactive channel specifically that its illegal to view it there. Belive it or not, 80% of Indians use it!!
    Thanks to the nice foot print area of NSS6!

    For a recharge, why dont you use internet banking, from their website using your credit card? Its very simple. :cool:

    Dont worry about using your card, all you have to see is the "", this https means a secured connection, moreover since you are directly doing it from the dish TV site, yoo dont have to worry about it. Click on the "International Credit Card" option when you make the option,(assuming your credit card is from UAE).

    Paypal is very good, but Dish TV doesnt have any tie up from them. If you really dont want to make an online payment, call up some of your friends in India, and ask them to buy a recharge card for you. Simple as that!
