Wonderful online TV guide for India

Earlier people used newspaper for TV program guidance. After the arrival of DTH (Direct to Home), people are using DTH channel guide itself. 

There are few advantages in DTH channel guide. For example, we can set reminder for our favorite programs. Meanwhile there are few disadvantages in DTH channel guide. For example, we should keep set-top box on switch-on mode.
