    Videocon D2H has the very worst ever Customer care and service for customers.
    When we file complaint (voice customer care) they don’t respond properly and they never respect a customer properly.
    For getting the D2H ready it took 5 working days for them to fix as the service guys did not turn up. They came after several escalations.
    Very poor customer service.

    Two weeks I have called them continuously to uninstall and install d2h from old house to new house. They will take complaints and themselves close it as resolved with out ur notice. Almost 10 times I have given complaint.
    Nodal officer numbers does not work.
    If u face any problem Like signal not available they charge to resolve the issue.
    Overall worst customer service

    I agree with this comment by other customers that “Videocon offers worst customer care” I have ordered remote for setup box and though I repeated order twice , and though each time customer care person promised delivery in 24 hours still no delivery.
    Besides this whenever we call Videocon customer care they will keep the customer waiting (standard reply: Line pe bane rahiye) this is most frustrating as one wastes a lot of valuable time just by waiting for customer care person to reply.
    I am really disappointed being customer of Videocon

    Great thing about Videocon is India’s worst service is provided only by Videocon. Customer care executive don’t even respond properly n they don’t even value the time n money of the customer. I had a issue with the signals 10 days after registering the complaint technician came to solve the problem that to after calling them continuously. Even after solving the issue problem repeated just after 2 hours. I tried to talk with the superiors but the customer care executive guys put my call on hold almost for an hour after waiting for an hour they didn’t connect my call to their superior. I got fed up with their behaviour n hung up the call. Till now my issue didn’t get solved. This didn’t happened only with me. Everyone who is using Videocon service in my area has the same issue with the signals. A fair suggestion to someone who is looking to use Videocon service don’t even think about this d2h service just opt some other d2h service which cares n values customers time n money

    Third class customer care and worst service. If you can afford 500 to recharge and 500 to pay to technical team for rectifying signal issues then you may go far videocon d2h.

    Very first thing about reviews on this website for Videocon D2H, all the positive reviews on this website about the product and services are posted by their own employees as most of them talks about the picture quality, low cost and good service. Inspite of these positive reviews which are fake makes it rate it for low than 2stars.

    Coming to my point in perception, My customer Id is 187586917. I have recently shifted from one location to other asked for relocation, technician fixes the appointment and never reaches the place for installation and rejects your call if you call and to your surprise if you check with customer care they charged you Rs 450 as the technician has registered fake complaint, this has happened twice and it is lying for last 3weeks, I am chasing customer care and techician since last 3days and getting no help, engineers say that pin code does not falls im their area and disconnects. Customer service team everytime has a new excuse and they are working on it.

    IF YOU WANT TO GET HARRASED AND TROUBLED THEN ONLY GO fOR VIDEOCON D2H

    I WISH I COULD RATE IT NEGATIVE.

    Cannot get in touch with their customer care service. No support on their website.
    They block your calls if you try to get help landline. Rude communication from their customer representatives. Worse service provided. No satisfactory solution provided even if you get in touch with them. They ask you to pay 200 RS for engineer visit if the problem is from their side. Not recommended at all.

    I am the consumer of Videcon D2H for around 10 years, with following details:
    Customer ID:67931144
    Name: Zafar Abbas
    Last recharge date: 24th April 2019
    Recharge upto : 18th July 2019

    I am facing an strange error as below:
    From DSS Persistent Message
    DSS BBCL your account has ran out of balance. Please recharge your account as soon as possible.
    This error is occupying the whole screen and not allowing us to watch any channel from beginning of this month ie. May 2019.
    I have called customercare multiple , around 30, times, but they are unable to support over call. They insited me to file the complaints everytime, which will cost RS. 250, as I am using product out of warranty. After that, I have filed complaints mutiple times, but either no one is visiting our place or even after visit no resolutioj is coming from the techician. The complaints are in COMPLETED status now, though issue not resolved yet.

    I am still not able to watch the channels. I have lost watching the IPL and hoping will loose watching World cup too.

    I am fully disappointed by the customer care support provided over helpline number 9115691156. I have found that they don’t know anything and sitting ther just to register complaints only. None of them, including supervisors, has basic knowledge of the product and trobleshooting. They are non-supportive and used to cut the call in the middle of the discussion. Every time,when I called them , the executive has same question that what issue I am facing. I am not sure, how these guys are working. They don’t have issue record, call records, resolution record.. nothing. They are not tracking the progress of the complaints and hurrying in closing the complaints without verifying from consumer. The service is pathetic. I am hopeles and made my mind to leave D2H soon.

    The worst service awards goes to videocon d 2h service. If you ask something they will say, can’t say. Even it is related to your account.
    The biggest mistake by me.
