Speed is a very important factor

Well Dialog TV started their channels additions some time back towards the end of May and we are still waiting for the Star Package. Delays in introducing new channels has been a feature of this company from the days of the previous management. Even when introducing ESPN-Star Sports last year, the company faced several delays attributed to technical issues. Now after a lapse of almost two months we have got all the channels that we were informed of initially except for the Star package. This is a matter that has to be seriously looked into by management.

Whilst understanding that the technology used is complicated we are also aware that it isn't exactly rocket science.

We hope that Dialog TV management will do any required restructuring in order for their technical department to run smoothly and deliver results on schedule. It should be said that LBN is delivering channels without taking too much time. Even if due to the differences in the platforms Dialog TV would take more time than the other operators, taking too much time is totally unacceptable.

We hope that the Star Package channels channels are introduced as soon as possible without any further delay and steps are taken to minimize delays hereafter. If Dialog TV is to become a trendsetter in the pay television industry as they did with the mobile telecommunications industry then they should be able to deliver channels much faster than this with a high level of quality. Not to mention that a much more knowledgeable customer care is also important.

LBN has beaten Dialog TV by introducing HBO Hits, HBO Family and Star Cricket first and also taking less time to add channels that they have signed up with. Dialog TV can reverse this trend by doing things much faster.

Please update us on the latest information on Dialog TV as the days progress.

DTV should seriously look in to their current problems.

They are saddled with Technical, Marketing, Operational issues. The behaviour of DTV does not reflect that the company is being run by professionals.


It is really surprising why they are not in a position to sort out marketing and opertaional issues faster while technical issues may take little longer to sort out.

One thing is very clear. DTV is learning.

They have been in communication and having experience in that field. THey may have thought that they can achive any thing they want with that experience.

They have been proved wrong. Because DTV has incurred losses in the first quarter to the tune of 348.ml.

If they want to improve or not to get beaten by a small company like LBN they should act fast.

Treat thier customers well. Restructure package to attract more and more low income group customers. Stop discriminating CBNsat customers, Add more and more pime chanell on customers requset, improve the quality of exisiting channels etc etc.

Otherwise their fate will be decided by the customers.

russel said...

i was able to contact the guy i know in the dtv tech team. but what he said was, they have just reicved the setup boxes and stuff for the star package. and that they havent recieved the boxes for the star cricket even. and they havent even signed with star cricket. dunno wheather he is telling the truth though..... the star cricket ill take some time. thats what he said..

terry u hacve anything to say about this?

TERRY said...

@ Russel

Your guy is defeneitly lying,Some of you may have already received the programme guide for August 2007 and in that it is claearly mentioned with logos of the five star channels (Cricket,Vijay,World,Plus,movies) that they will soon be on the platform.

DTV is so particular that they are not mad to put out something without signing the contract.

cableguy said...

Yeah. What a nice surprise! I got my August Program Guide yesterday (26th).
Thanks DTV for taking our comments and suggestions and getting the program guide out before the month started.

Next step is to make it more informative by including more details from the popular channels. This may require few more added pages, but DTV should be able to handle the costs.

DTV: If you need sources to get the program guides for other channels, please contact this blog. Our bloggers are able to get more program info than whats printed in your guide.

as terry said, are the logos of the star channels, including cricket, mentioned on the guide ?

400 CHANNELS FROM DISH TV BY 2008

In a bid to increase its subsciber base, DTH operator Dish TV is planning to invest about Rs 850 crore over the next three years. The company expects to touch a subscriber base of about 4.5 million in the next 18-20 months.

The company is also planning to increase the number of channels on offer. They plan to offer about 400 channels by next year. This would be both Indian and international channels. Currently, they offer about 170 channels and plan to take it up to 200 channels in the next 4-8 weeks.

The DTH player is also planning to introduce new products for the niche and premium segment. Add-ons like personal video recorders (PVR) have been received well by a particular consumer segment.

The DTH space will see several new players. Both Bharti’s DTH service and Reliance’ DTH Blue Magic are expected to roll out soon.

THIS IS FROM 27th JULY 2007 THE ECONOMIC TIMES - INDIA

hsjaya said...

Yakuza,

CC people are hubmle bcoz they are clueless.

Yesterday I called them for a statement problem and the CC guy did not have a name of a CC manager with him.

He did not know who was handling complains at billing division. THe guy took about 30 mts to give me a name and TP no. I felt sorry about these CC people. They are like lambs sent to slaughter.

No training, NO understanding about customer issues, no idea about companys marketing plan, no idea about technical matters ,etc etc

hsjaya said...

Yakuza,

After upgrading you dont have to do anything . No scanning. No restore factory defaults. All the channells will comeup automatically

cableguy said...

@amd

yes the logos for all the Star Channels are on the first page of the program guide, except STAR CRICKET. So as Terry says, it must be COMING SOON to a TV NEAR YOU.

Dear Bloggers:
A friend of mine wants to cancel his DTV connection and made a written request to do so. But apparently, the wonderful people at DTV CC is not disconnecting it saying that they cannot find the written request to disconnect.

I advised my friend to tell CC that he will not pay any bills in the future, since he has done what is needed, and not to waste his time. And if DTV CC cannot get their act together, its their problem.

How stupid are these guys at DTV?? What are they going to do to my friend if he does not pay any future bills?? Disconnect his DTV??(DUHHHHHHH)
Thats what he is asking to do now anyway....

Someone!! Please PLease help me understand the mentality of these DTV CC guys... I am begging you..

They give a whole new meaning to STUPIDITY!!

Dialog Telekom Selects Tekelec

By Stefania Viscusi
TMCnet Assistant Editor

Looking to better support their continual subscriber growth, Dialog Telekom, a telecommunication company in Sri Lanka, has announced the selection of Tekelec (News - Alert) EAGLE 5 Integrated Signaling System (EAGLE 5 ISS).

A developer of high-performance network applications for next generation fixed, mobile and packet networks, Tekelec's EAGLE 5 ISS will offer Dialog a flexible platform that will handle their current and future application needs and will provide the company with the ability to continue on with their successful growth into the future.

The EAGLE 5 ISS boasts the delivery of reliable global signaling and real-time transaction-based applications. The company describes it as "delivering dramatic database size, signaling capacity and transaction speed."

hsjaya said...

Cableguy,

Why do you want to have written request.

You know these people had changed my billling address without any intimation from me on thier own. How is that ?

So Be careful onre of these days DTV might remove someone elses connection for Cableguys friend

Most funniest thing is that I am getting another DTV customers statement to my address. When I informed about this to CC nobody cared about it.

What an utter mess

Lightning_Struck_Tower said...

"A friend of mine wants to cancel his DTV connection and made a written request to do so. But apparently, the wonderful people at DTV CC is not disconnecting it saying that they cannot find the written request to disconnect."

I applied for temporary disconnection and i think they did it pretty quickly. But guess what i am still receiving the programme guide even after 6 months.

cableguy said...

@hsjaya

Thats funny (or not so funny if someone else gets their service disconnected).

So I keep telling my friend not to worry. If DTV does not disconnect the service, I told my friend to just enjoy the FREE DTV service, and not to pay the bill(as long as he is paid until the time of disconnection request).

What a bunch of Jokers!! Does it take two hoots to figure out that its DTV's loss and my friends gain, by not disconnecting when asked to do so.

Funny world we live in:)

cableguy said...

@lst

Thats how it should be. A disconnection should happen immediately when requested by a customer upon confirming his/her identity. I dont think there is a need for written request.

Once again I keep going back to my statement "Whats the worst that could happen? Disconnect Service??"

Thats what this request is all about. Its just that DTV CC guys should get it in their thick skull and understand the simple reality of this request.

alf said...

@CABLEGUY

WHAT IS THE REASON THAT YOUR FRIEND IS DISCONNECTING THE SERVICE? IS HE GOING TO ANOTHER SERVICE PROVIDER?

cableguy said...

@alf

I believe so. He is tired of DTV and dealing with its crap. I am not sure if he plans to get a different service provider or not, but he has been talking a lot about DISH TV.

alf said...

@ CABLEGUY

IF THEY HAVE 400 CHANNELS AS PLANNED BY NEXT YEAR THE ONLY PROBLEM THE SUBSCRIBER WILL HAVE IS THE CHANNEL SELECTION.

BUT WHEN YOU THINK OVER DTV WILL TAKE YEARS TO HAVE THE OPTIONS DISH HAS LIKE ACTIVE SERVICES,SELECTING CAMERA ANGLES,HIGHLIGHTS,SCORECARD ON MATCHES,DIGIBOX DIRECTLY CONNETING TO YOUR LCD MONITOR,GAMES,LANGUAGE SELECTION AND MANY MORE.EVEN THEIR EPG IS VERY FAST AND THE OPTIONS ARE USER FRIENDLY.

SO THERE IS LOT TO BE DONE BY DTV.

Looser said...

@Alf

Do you know anything about that Movie on demand on DishTv. (I know we can't use that)

Do you know how it works?

hsjaya said...

DISHTV INDIA is a company establised in 1988 and has gradually improved to present position after in opertion for almost 20years. It has many subsidiary and associate companies

DTV cannot be compared with DISHTV. DTV just started after converting CBNsat and has many many deficiencies in its operations.

DISHTV is now capable of giving
value to its customers and DTV is struggling to provide at least basic customer care.

DTV will have to think lot about their strategies. Are DTV customers patient enough to wait years and years for DTV to improve its services. ?

We donot expect value addtion services provided by DISTV from DTV immediately.

But the most glaring mistake is that there is no communication at all between existing customers and DTV.

They must have taken their market leadership as granted and hence keeping silent.

We as customers are prepared to wait provided we know what is going to happen, about their future plans, their package structure etc etc.

But at the moment dead silence. This silence will only benificial only to their competitors but to no one else.

Nathan said...

Why do i feel that people are not blogging here anymore as much as they used to.

Is it becoming stale...look at the new thread that was created.

russel said...

ALF

did u say that the rental for the highest package for dish tv is 900? r u sure? if so, its pretty cheap isnt it. as you have dtv also at home, how is the picture quality between those two? is dishtv better?
u said that there are interactive services and stuff like that in dish tv? are you kdding or what?
please tell me the conection charges of it and how to know more information about it.
i am just asking this because my parents are also hoping to get a sat tv connection and just asked me what they should buy. please help. they are not in a area where there is lbn coverage.

russel said...

anyway, i would stick with dtv for some time....

Thanura said...

I got my programme guide today.
DTV thanks for delivering it to us before the month AUG.

I think they are sending it through a private company.(thrugh express mail) Ain't mailing it to us through post like they did before.

DTV has mentioned about STAR package channels on the programme guide. they have mentioned about the 20twenty world cup too.

so i hope they will give us STAR CRICKET before the world cup.

TechnoGuy said...

I beleive that Dialog TV was planning to launch STAR channels only in August. Not July.

That is why it was in the August guide but not the July guide.

It was their plan. We beleived the information passed around here and thought it would be launched this month. Mistake. Although they probably got the receiving equipment some time ago, test launch was planned for August.

At least we should defitnitely get it in August. Or will we?

TechnoGuy said...

What would you like to see on the Unofficial Website for Dialog TV?

Any features, information or even correction. Improvements to the website that are useful for customers.

All are welcome to send suggestions on this blog, or my blog (where anonymous is allowed).

I will choose the best and add them to the improvements list.

russel said...

terry

u also think that the star package would be introduced only in august not before the 1st. not this month?


technoguy

did u get any information about this? did someone tell ya that the star package is due in august?

AMD

i remember u say that the CC guy told that the star package will be given before the 1st of august?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

the problem for me is that i cant trust the guy who had been giving me information.

guys, i think we should go with terry. he said ndtv will be cooming and in a coupl of hours it came.......

terry! any news with you? sorry to have disturbed you mate.

AMD said...

Ya maybe DTV was planning STAR for August all along, and maybe only the top management / engineers know the exact launch date.

@ Russel

Yes, when i called C/C last weekend, he told be that within this week - on or before 1st august they will test STAR.

Jesika said...

Hi

Yesterday I transfered my 1600/- package to 900/- package again.

laksirif said...

Hi Friends,

It appears to me that DTV guys are handling both Marketing and their Customers in the most unprofessional way.

'though they have taken a few positive steps like sending the PG before the commencement of the month. They do not seem to believe that constant communication is a good form of keeping customer happy, rather than keeping in the dark.

As for delay in launching the Star Pkg, it has more to do with their Marketing than Technical issues. It's very clear even from the info I had been getting DTV is trying to use this as a tool for their Marketing in August. According to info I rcvd they will definitely launch Star next week, which supports my theory and also the fact that DTV hv already announced this in their PG for Aug. For the time being Star Cricket will come in place of Gold.

I personally believe that once a player like SLT launch their IPTV, which they have planned for Aug/Sept, others will really feel stiff competition.

russel said...

laksirif

thanks for the information. u mean launch next week? or start testing next week? they wont be able to launch next week if they wont start testing from now even?

terry

so we wont be getting the star package as expected this week end. wont we?

thanks

russel said...

laksirif, terry

any chance of us getting the star package this week end?

i kinda a bit impatiient nowl.

kumara said...

IF YOU ALL ARE SO IMPATIENT GO AND BUY DISH TV

kumara said...

FOR GOD SAKE GIVE SOME TIME FOR THESE DTV PEOPLE. DONT YOU ALL SEE HOW THEY ARE STRUGGLING WITH TEIER WORK. BE REASONABLE.

TERRY said...

Yes Kumara is right give these guys some breathing space and for your info Star Gold was never on the DTV list and Star Cricket is secured as a one off channel and not replacing Gold as said ealier by someone.

Lightning_Struck_Tower said...

Hey Star Cricket is specifically mentioned (with logo and everything) in the coming soon section of August programme guide.

star said...

Well Dish TV now offer their new service. Dish Tv on compueter with new VGA boxes.

Check information:
http://www.dishtvindia.in/Static/vga/vga.html

Now Dish Tv will on Home, Car and now Computer.

Enjoy.

TechnoGuy said...

Guys,

I think the 20/20 Cricket matches will be broadcasted in both Hindi and English.

I saw an advertisement of it yesterday on ESPN. It said that ESPN shows it with English commentary and STAR Cricket shows it with Hindi commentary.

If so, then getting STAR Cricket won't be of so much value. But since they do hold rights for other ICC events too, they should try to put English stuff on STAR Cricket and the Hindi stuff on STAR Sports (where the Hindi stuff normally goes). Then STAR Cricket's value will be high. r else there will be no use for use outside India. Even some of those within India who do not speak Hindi would prefer English commentary.

ESPN STAR Sports, please do not take the NEO Sports attitude and broadcast cricket mainly for Indian viewers! Broadcast cricket for all to watch in English, a universal language.

Kavan said...

Is the DTV programme guide sent to all customers or does it require a special subscription or the 1400 package.

I have the 900 package and have not got any DTV programme guide in post as yet

TechnoGuy said...

@ Kavan

Programme guide is sent to all customers, regardless of package.

Even I have not got the guide yet. I think areas outside Colombo are mailed the guide very early so that they will definitely get it before the beginning of the month. Colombo is mailed the guides later as they will be delivered quickly.

So we will probably get the guide before August 1st, wherever we live in Sri Lanka.

Though I had got the software upgrade (done by DTV automatically on July 18th) I was asked by DTV to 'Restore Factory Defaults' to get God TV. Though I had the 'Buddhist' channel even without request, I had to 'Restore factory defaults' to get God TV.

On two previous occasions (in August, 2005 and in June this year), I got the red-light and total signal failure when asked to do 'Restore factory defaults". Then DTV changed my decoder. This time (July, 2007), the decoder successfully 'Restored the defaults'.

Also, DTV forced me to be leave CBNSat pkg and go to DTV pkg to get God TV.

kumara said...

hsjaya,

THOUGH INTERVIEWER SAYS ARJUNA WAS SIPPING TEA, BUGGAR MUST HAVE BEEN DRINKING KASIPPU. THIS MAN IS PUERLY JEALOUS OF MAHELA. INDIAN TVS WILL DO PAY HUGE SUMS TO EX CRICKETERS TO PUBLISH ARTICLES WHICH SAYS THEY ARE THE BEST CRICKET TEAM IN WORLD. NOT ONLY ARJUNA EVEN IAN CHAPPELL SAID SAME STUPID THING.

THAT IS WHY NEO SPORTS IS ONLY SHOWING ALL MATCHES WON BY INDIA, INDIAN GREAT PARTNERSHIPS, INDIAN LEGENDS.
ONE BILLION AUDIENCE IN INDIA IS LEAD TO BELEIVE THEIR TEAM IS THE BEST IN THE WORLD BY ALL THESE INDIAN BIASED CHANNELLS. THEY COULD NOT EVEN BEAT BANGALADESH IN THE WORLD CUP.

kumara said...

Freeman,

DTV CC HAS GIVEN YOU WRONG INSTRUCTIONS. YOU ONLY DO A CHANNELL SCAN TO ADD NEW CHANNELLS IF U R 1600PKG.

BETTER YOU OBTAIN ADVICE FROM BLOGGERS OF THIS BLOG RATHER THAN DTV CC.

LBN Rocks said...

dialog tv sucks!

you have to upgrade package to get a free channel like GOD TV.

and dharmavahini is the TRUE first buddhist channel in Sri Lanka. the buddhist came long time later!

dialog tv will never beat lbn. you wait and see.

kumara said...

LBN ROCKS and FUCKS

WHY THE HELL BUGGAR YOU ARE CRYING SO LOUDLY. DONT WHIMPER AND CRING. MIND YOUR OWN BLOODY BUSINESS

WE KNOW WHAT DTV CAN DO AND CANNOT DO. YOU BUGGAR DONT HAVE TO COME RUNNING FROM NOWHERE AND TELL US WHO IS GOING TO BEAT WHO

LET ANY BUGGAR OR COMPANY BEAT DTV . WHO CARES. WE HAVE WHAT WE WANT. AND IF WE WANT SOMETHING ELSE WE ALSO CAN GET IT FROM DTV.

ONLY TIME WILL TELL. WHILE YOU ARE WAITING TO SEE LBN BEAT DTV REMEMBER NOT TO STEP ON TO YOU BUGGAR'S TAIL. PUT THAT BLOODY TAIL BETWEEN YOUR LEGS AND RUN TO YOUR PIGGERY LBNBLOG.

BUGGARS LIKE YOU WHO DONT HAVE ANY PALCE TO PISS AND SHIT PUT BLOGS HERE AND THERE DESTROYING FRIENDSHIP AND CREATING BAD FEELING AMONG BLOGGERS BETWEEN DTV, LBN AND COMET.

DTV BIG HEADS

CAN YOU DESIGN A PACKAGE WITH ONLY GOD TV FOR FREEMAN @ /50 RENTAL

TechnoGuy said...

I am very unhappy! You know why?

Because many of you are fighting.

Earlier I thought you lot were just fighting becuase there was nothing else to do until Dialog introduced more channels.

But now the fight has run into religious matters. Once before, this happened last year when we had no signal. Jessica and Kalu were fighting over GOD TV. But it was resolved and both of them were quite friendly afterwards. I thought it was Happily Ever After. My mistake.

Now the same has happened again. Only there are more people involved.

ARE YOU GUYS FOOLISH ENOUGH TO START A FIGHT OVER A LOGO. Jessica removed it with respect. Do you still need to drag the fight on?

Please do not fight over religious matters. As it seems, you lot don't have any clear respect for any religion at all!


In Christianity it is clearly stated that you need to have an Active Faith.

St. Paul (as I remember, correct me if I am wrong) said in one of his letters:

"If your faith is not an active faith, it is a dead faith"

Active Faith includes respecting and loving all others as you love God. It is not seen anywhere that God says to disrespect all other religions.

Active Faith does not include boasting that you have true faith and then fighting with others.

The above is applicable to Christians. This is what I have read and learnt, although I am a Buddhist (yes, I am).

But still similar things are taught in other religions.


There should be respect for all others, regardless of religion, race, colour, the logo they use, their aliases on blogger, etc. All religions teach this, although maybe in different ways.


So please stop this useless fight and learn to get along with each other. I think I have another example for loving and respecting, but now I do not have the time for it.


Alf, Kumara, Jessica, Freeman and others: I know most of you are good people at heart. Exercise your good and be good citizens. Think a bit... this kind of fighting is what has brought our country to this low-down level, isn't it? Don't push it down any further, please.

Thats all I ask from you.

sonik said...

writing after sometime. i must admit, channel quality of channels on tp3 has increased. hopefully it will remain the same. i'm waiting for them to add star channels. havent got the prog. guide yet though.

abt this hdtv thing? how are they testing it? on what satellite?

as far as the fighting here.... well, the problem with us in SL is that we've found so many ways of dividing ourselves.... thats why evn peace is so hard to acheive. so why not stick to the point in this blog and keep it free from religious issues. i totally agree with what technoguy has said. ive seen a many forums like this one breakdown because of a few individuals... lets not let that happen to TVRSL.

Jesika said...

TechnoGuy:

You said i'm fighting about Religious channel. Do I? Pls show me...Alf can comment anything but i dont care. I just ignore him.

How comes there is a fight only from one side? Alf is trying to fight to fight with me with his famous word set, But who cares ???

I think this is a free blog?

Free man, Sorry for make u trouble connection you for this problem..

Jesika said...

Guys
I could able to downgrade my Package to 900/= with ESPN & POGO.

(I had 850/- package, then i upgraded to 1600/- package)

hsjaya said...

ALF,

So many people in this blog including myself will be happy if you stop this fight with Jessika.

So many people have pleade you to stop this but you are on all out to fight with Jessika.

You may be having many good reasons for that. But pl stop this as most of the mates here do not want to start the week with an ugly fight which will ruin the entire week for everybody.

when i upgraded to 900/-pkg from 850/-, i spoke to one Kanchana @DTV. she got it upgraded in a abt 2-3 hrs. so why dont you just call her.

initially i thought Hallmark was a shit channel. (i even made a comment here re same) but now i find that Hallmark has some cool programmes. very different to AXN but Very good quality stuff. Good choice DTV.

I thought I'll not going to participate religious issues, but looking at some comments, I thought of putting something. I hope most of the senior bloggers can remember that GOD TV issue came to surface in last August and Jesika is the one who started it. Once again Jesika started this when CBN (DTV) started to add new channels into their lineup. Finally Jesika now you have what you requested. Again she started a problem by putting GOD TV logo into the profile. As I can remember you were upgraded to 1600 because you don't want to loose your favorite channel POGO. Why don't you use POGO logo instead of GOD TV. Jesika be like a adult and act like a adult if you are.

Admin if you remove ALF, KUMARA's comments, why don't you do the same for Jesika. Delete all comments which has GOD TV logo.

Friends think, we have lots of issues to be sorted out.

This is not a blog to accuse anyone of conversions or talk about religion or even to criticise a religion. Please find appropriate blogs for those.

Anyone can do anything with their profile and do not use this blog to criticise them.

Please stick to the focus of this blog.

Any unruly behavior will not be tolerated.

You and everyone else can put any picture on your profile. It seems some people are using the pictures on the profiles of other bloggers to start unnecessary conversations.

Please stop this argument due to profile pictures. If Jesika put God TV logo onto her profile it is her wish. We deleted comments that talk about unethical conversions and attacking religions.

Please refrain from attacking other hereafter.

Admin,

I agree with u. But there should be an end for this stupid issue. That's why I suggested the method. Further if you can analize, please count number of comments related to DTV once Jesika put that logo into her profile. Most of the guys are now not in the right track. So our main focus should be at this point to get a quality service from DTV not to fight.

We understand what you are saying. But is it fair to criticise someone just because of a profile picture. It is kiddish of people to get upset over other peoples profile picture. After all the picture is not vulgar or anything like that.

Religion is a sensitive issue but this has been blown out of proportion by some bloggers and we hope that this does not happen again.

BTW we have started a new thread. Please continue conversations on that thread please.
