    I got it as it is the Month of April so u r making us april Fool.If it happens it will be a breaking news on Indian television websites(zee and Star big rivals ).
    Only first part is right..i.e free stb below is the full story
    :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: ::::::::::::::::::::
    MUMBAI, APRIL 26: In a move that will potentially kick off a price war in the nascent direct to home (DTH) television services, Tata Sky, the 80:20 DTH joint venture between the Tata Group and Star India is planning to introduce set top boxes (STBs) in the market free of charge.
    According to sources, the STBs, which are the costliest component of DTH services will be offered free of cost, provided the subscriber signs up with the company for a year. When contacted by .................................

    The news about Star Tv offering its channels on dishtv is given in website Indiantelevision.com but v cant belive it.. as they had not finalised it completely.. once star starts it DTH from july then I think they will provide each other's contents.. I dont know why sony is not showing interest .. they are loosing lot of TRPS as more than 1 million subscribers of Dishtv dont get to watch Sony channels as that channel is not available yet.

    I think SONY ONE Alliance will also eventually have to share contents as it will get around 2 million subscribers in 1 shot plus STAR is also eyeing for the same amount of subscribers by end of the year or early next year so i don't think anyone would want to loose this amount of business and just try and market thru cable operators. DTH is the future in India anyways since all the metro cities have started implementing CAS (Conditional Access system) or viewing via STB's(Receivers) so let's wait and see what happens in May-June since STAR will start around 1st July but have asked all other channel providers who want to be on their DTH to finalize terms by 15th May so it might be a uniform tariff whether subscribers choose DISH TV or STAR DTH !

    Enjoy !
