You get all indian channels including malayalam channels on dish so that would be a better option. If you are looking for Hindi channels also then you can get a Pehla card from official dealers. One of them is Qatar Multi-Tech. When you get here just call up on 4353513 or 4353565 and they will tell you further.....or drop a mail on salesqmt@qatar.net.ae

Have fun...
