First Sinhala Language Pay television channel?

http://dialogtv.blogspot.com/2007/11...elevision.html


The replacement for SET SAB on Dialog TV is expected to launch soon. For almost a week the channel space occupying SET SAB has been scrambled and marked as "Test" and from yesterday the EPG on that location has been activated and it is displaying names of Sinhala Language programmes/movies.

We believe that the channel known as "Citi Hitz" will be the replacement. This may be the first pay television Sinhala Language channel in Sri Lanka. Anyone with more information regarding this channel such as the launch date and type of programmes expected, etc is welcome to comment.

In other news it seems that all transponder levels have been stabilized however at certain times their is no synchronization between the audio and video on some channels.

We hope that the December programme guide will be received soon by subscribers and also the December EPG will be updated soon and accurately by Dialog TV.

Please keep us updated on the latest on Dialog TV as the days progress.

YES FM

English Language Radio Station Yes FM which used to broadcast from Crescat over the previous years have now moved to ODEL for their yearly outdoor broadcast.
This means that there are two English Language radio stations (Yes FM & E FM) which are carrying out outdoor broadcasts this Christmas.

IPTV hits Colombo from this month

Quote:
Internet Protocol Television better known as IPTV was launched in Colombo for the first time bringing about a new dimension into the communication sphere in the country.

This was made possible through the state telecom giant’s SLT VisionCom Private Limited organisation commencing this new initiative by launching it on Monday marking the latest step in the realm of technology convergence.

Media Minister Anura Priyadharshana Yapa said that he has taken steps to expand the telecommunication industry in Sri Lanka.

Moreover the minister noted that the government had reduced international call charges and has assisted the industry by providing increased services for the public.

SLT Chairperson Leisha de Silva Chandrasena speaking at the launch observed that today TV was the key mode of choice for Education, Entertainment and Business.

SLT VisionCom Private Limited CEO Thusha Weerasooriya speaking on the significance of the launch highlighted the fact that

IPTV is set to offer viewers an interactive platform, which focuses on greater choice, greater control and convenience in the watching of any programme whenever they choose to, thereby providing greater flexibility to the user, with amazing high quality images and audio coming right into the living room. Set to become the next frontier in television, with the transformation from a standard one way system to an out of the box Personalized Entertainment Option, which will be a simple and seamless experience for the user.

Arc Oppifibre Managing Director Dr. K.S. Chaudry giving an Indian perspective observed that currently there are 120 million IPTV users in Sri Lanka’s neighbouring state. Anyone else think that claim sounds a bit sketchy?

He noted that presently they air 300 channels; and explaining the ease of use of the interactive mode of the new technology said that prior to using IPTV there were problems in viewing different programmes on various channels however with the use of the bookmarking facility there is the possibility of ensuring that the public will have a better option.

This service is offered at a competitive price, giving greater value to the public. There will be an enabling fee of initial services of Rs 9950 and a monthly rental of Rs 1000 for a suite of 14 international channels, with 5 channels free of charge. I think Dialogtv is a much better deal. SLT Vision Com will be employing a phase by phase expansion for the marketing of IPTV, starting with the Greater Colombo area, Katunayake, Kurunegala, Kandy and Kalutara. The next phase will include Ratnapura and down south.

There has been six steps were fallow to enter the television. Those are Live TV, TSTV, Movie, and Displayed TV, Services and Interactive. The Time Shift TV allows you to watch your favourite television shows that you have missed.

Moreover, allowing access to a large library of movies and songs and providing the customer with self services. In interactive mode it is possible to obtain entertainment with Astrology when one enters the relevant details. Here such as entertainment for adults and kids, business, education, sport in addition to free-to-air local television stations.

Sri Lanka's newest television channel "TV 2" is presently testing on UHF 53. The channel is said to be run by People's Media Network who are testing Radio 1 on 104.5 FM. This frequency was previously assigned to Udayam Television which was a pro government Tamil language television channel launched targeting the eastern Ppovince during the eastern provincial council elections and over the past few weeks this channel was also visible in the colombo area over this frequency but over the last few days it has been replaced by "TV 2". We are not sure whether Udayam TV is still available in the eastern Province, hopely some of our bloggers from the eastern province should be able to give us some information.

"TV 2" telecasts an assortment of English Songs but with some Tamil and Sinhalese songs thrown in. We are unable to ascertain whether this channel will be a multi lingual channel or a channel telecasting programmes only on a specific language. We request our fellow bloggers to keep updating us when they receive information regarding this television channel.
