Channel rearrangement completed

According to information that we are receiving it seems that all the channels have been rearranged and are working. However knowing the people it is not hard to discount the fact that there may be further interruptions today. We are told that there are some audio issues with the channels and it will be sorted out during the course of this week. We are not aware of the status of the EPG and if it has been sorted out then it is great otherwise we believe that Dialog TV will sort it out as soon as possible and hopefully by today.

The new channel arrangement is as follows

1) CNN
2) BBC
3) NDTV
4) AL JAZEERA
5) STAR MOVIES
6) HBO
7) HBO SIGNATURE
8) HBO HITS
9) HBO FAMILY
10) CINEMAX
11) ZEE STUDIO
12) SET MAX
13) ZEE CINEMA
14) STAR VIJAY
15) SRTV
16) STAR WORLD
17) AXN
18) HALLMARK
19) ZONE REALITY
20) ZEE CAFÉ
21) AUSTRALIA NETWORK
22) A1
23) ZEE TRANDZ
24) STAR PLUS
25) SET
26) SET SAB
27) ZEE TV
28) NAT GEO
29) DISCOVERY
30) DISCOVERY Travel & Living
31) ANIMAL PLANET
32) HISTORY
33) STAR SPORTS
34) ESPN
35) TEN SPORTS
36) NEO SPORTS
37) NEO SPORTS PLUS
38) ZEE SPORTS
39) STAR CRICKET
40) VH1
41) MTV
42) ZEE MUSIC
43) CARTOON NETWORK
44) POGO
45) ANIMAX
46) NICKELODEON
47) RUPAVAHINI
48) DERANA
49) ITN
50) SWARNAWAHINI
51) TNL
52) EYE
53) THE BUDDHIST
54) GOD TV

For those of you who get the wrong channel names for the channels, please do a channel scan. We believe that those of you who have set favorite lists should do so again if your list shows the wrong channels. In addition it seems that Dialog has not changed the name of channel "Adventure 1" to "Nat Geo Adventure". "Adventure 1" was relaunched as "Nat Geo Adveture" several months ago. We hope Dialog take a serious attempt to update itself regarding the channels that they broadcast. It is great to see that Dialog TV has finally updated its website with information about the new channels and it seems that even that is not error free, they have still classed "Zone Reality" as a new channel (Zone Reality was available on this platform from its inception under the previous management and was known as "Reality TV") and even there they still refer to "Nat Geo Adventure" as "A1" but in the tariffs page the channel is listed as "Nat Geo Adventure". This is clearly a case of miscommunication from a company that has its roots in providing communication solutions. Dialog TV should include a link to the website of the channels on the page with the channel icons.

We hope corrective steps are taken soon since it is not good for the image of a multi national company of its calibre and the new package rates mentioned in the previous post should be reconsidered again by the management of Dialog TV unless they want to take the path chosen by Comet Cable.

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

Bharti Airtel to Operate in Sri Lanka

India's top mobile phone company, Bharti Airtel Ltd., said Wednesday it plans to begin operations in neighboring Sri Lanka by March next year and invest US$200 million in the island nation over the next five years.

Bharti will use the Airtel brand to provide its services through its Sri Lankan subsidiary, the company said in a statement.

"The customers in Sri Lanka can look forward to a host of innovative products and services at affordable prices from Airtel's vast portfolio," it said.

Bharti Airtel, which offers phone and broadband services to 45 million customers in India, has been among the country's most profitable and fast growing companies in recent years, thanks to a boom in mobile phone services.

The New Delhi-based company has been looking to expand overseas. Sri Lanka will be its third overseas market.

Bharti was recently granted the license to provide 2G and 3G mobile services in Sri Lanka, the statement said. Much of its planned investment in Sri Lanka -- about US$200 million (euro150 million) over a five-year period -- will be made over the next 12 to 18 months, it said.

"With (Sri Lanka's) mobile penetration of around 30 percent and growing at a rate of approximately 2 million mobile users per annum, we are excited about our entry into this market," said Sanjay Kapoor, president of mobile services at Bharti Airtel.

IPTV to roll out in 30 cities in INDIA by Mar 2009

With the broadband penetration gaining momentum, IPTV is set for a boom in India and is expected to be available in around 30 cities in the next 18-20 months, industry officials said.

IPTV is currently commercially available in Pune, Mumbai, Bangalore and Kolkata and is now showing signs of gaining traction in the Indian market.

Mumbai-based IPTV content provider IOL Broadband Ltd plans to deploy the triple-play service - telephone, high speed internet and cable television in as many as 28 cities by March 2009.

"We plan to roll out the services in seven cities in 2007-08 and 21 cities in 2008-09," said IOL Broadband Director Mahendra Chouhan at the launch of BSNL IPTV services here. BSNL also launched the services in Kolkata yesterday.

As per the arrangement, IOL will provide content and market the services, while BSNL will provide access to customers.

BSNL Chairman and Managing Director Kuldeep Goyal, who was present at the launch, said the state-owned telecom company has aggressive plans to expand the broadband network and also saw a great future for IPTV services in India. BSNL has a broadband subscriber base of 10 lakh.

"We have ambitious plans for broadband expansion," Goyal said. "For the coming three years, we have plans to add six million broadband connections every year."

Jughead said...

DTV THIS IS FOR YOU......

1. Please change the structure (grafics & content) of the home page of the website. its bloody boring.

2. The letter sent to subscribers talk abt only 53 channels with the Value 1400 pkg getting 14 additional channels whereas there are 54 channels making it 15 more. today's daily mirror carries an advert saying 1400/- customers will have star cricket (SC) as well.then why did you'll ommit SC in the letter? is there some sort of hoodwinking here?

3. How can you say these 14 channels are free? isn't there a price for everything. in this case we expect you to add value to your service by giving max number of channels for what we pay for.so please dont humiliate the existing customers by using marketing gimmiks/terms such as FREE!!! this FREE!! that.

4. In my opinion it would not be ethical to charge 2 different subscription rates for the same package. it will not be a surprise if a new customer (after 30th sep) complain to Consumer affairs (protection) Authority for redress sayin DTV is charging more from them.

5. The approach by Mr. Kanagi Mukunthan i think was the best approach for you guys for future existance/survival in this competitive business i.e.....as a provider of affordable infotainment.

i personally feel that you guys have tread on the wrong path this time.

Anyways.All the best!!!

After busy week open the blog to salute DTV, but AMD's pdf says DTV is again steering to the wrong path. B careful DTV. You are in the open economy with two other compititors. Airtel also planing to start DTH service here. DishTV's penitration also speedup during last few months. If the problem with your location pl try to find location near Himbutana. Then your staff can stay in the hostel (Hospital) nearby

ADSL 1000... unlimited surf (1GB download) - WHAT CAN U DO WITH 1 GB???

kumara said...

AMD,

DO NOT TAKE THINGS SO SERIOUS. IF WE WERE SATISFIED WITH WHAT LOCAL CHANNELLS TELECAST, WE WOULD HAVE NEVER GONE FOR DTV. SINCE WE WANTED BETTER ENTETAINMENT AND WE COULD AFFORD EXTRA PAYMENT, PEOPLE HAVE GONE FOR CABLE TV.

COMMENTS IN THIS BLOG SHOWS HOW MUCH PEOPLE ARE DEEPLY HURT AND FRUSTRATED. THAT IS NOT A MATTER TO BE REDICLUED OR HUMILATED. DO NOT TAKE ALL CRITISISM AS HARSH OR RUDE. JUST TRY TO UNDERSTAND AS TO WHY PEOPLE ARE COMMENTING LIKE THAT.
IF DTV HAS USED SOME COMMON SENSE
(WHICH HARDLY EXIST IN DTV MANAGEMENT ) THIS SITUATION MAY HAVE NOT ARISEN AT ALL.

AMD said...

@ kumara

Tks for the comments. Like others im jus expressing my views and trying to prove my point. Anyway its each others individual preferences.

I agree that DTV's marketing & planning stragery's are all way off,
but i agree that if they are to add more premium feeds or add more premium channels, then its obvious they have to increase the package rates.

BUT whether they will have enough customers to buy that package and make it a viable option is still to be seen.

elakiri said...

@amd,
Yeah... I remember how I've watched cricket world cup on eye (having DTV 900) LOL

ADSL 1000. find out why they've introduced that package and how many customers have it now (then you'll realize)

If they really cannot afford TP4 channels to add existing packages, they could've create a new pack (2100) and add those (only premium). But see what they do now. I'm pretty sure they are trying to drag almost all to 1400 and get maximum new connections soon. That's why they say FREE FREE... bla bla. I'm sure they will extend sept. 30 deadline. Also offer old packs to companies as "Special Promo". By this way they'll stop package changes as well.
In simple terms "THESE FUCKERS TRY TO PLAY WITH OUR NERVES"

AMD said...

@ elakiri

1st of all please learn to talk without using filth.

The world cup telecast was handled by SET MAX - which is not a dedicated sports channel thats why they dont know how to handle a cricket match.

The 20/20 will be handled by star cricket , which is a dedicated cricket channel. Did u see the way the Indian tour was telecast ?

ADSL 1000 - do u really know how much u movies/music u can download with a 1 GB limt?

So in the future do u expect DTV to give u 100 channels for 1400 as well ? The same 1400 pakcage will continue after 30th Sept. But u wont get any NEW PREMIUM CHANNELS. Its as simple as that. Those u have the 1400 package can continue with it, those who wish to see the new channels can upgrade its as simple as that

arnold perera said...

For every one, dont expect good support as a customer from AMD or Jesika, may be technoguy.
When ever some one say the truth these people cant digest.

@amd
All the time you are saying for new quality channels paying good price is worth, BUT do you understand the case here.....
Even the existing customers cant upgrade the packages after 1st October.
Did you understand, jesika cant afford to pay 1400, she reduce to 900, she cant talk about 2100/-
Even if she wants 1400/- pack after 1st oct, she will have to go to 2100/-

Jughead said...

@amd

you said....The same 1400 pakcage will continue after 30th Sept. But u wont get any NEW PREMIUM CHANNELS. Its as simple as that.

If what you are saying is what DTV is trying to do..well, thats not a good business practice.

when new customers see that if they get a connection before 30 sep they will be able to watch premium channels at a low cost (2100 given @1400..wow,great) it doesnt mean that they will be more than happy to be with what is given initially. naturally they also would want more in the future.

but what DTV is not saying is(which is the real bottom line) .if you buy now you'll get it cheap, but you'll be stuck with this lot. no more premium channels.

if that is not hoodwinking the customers, what is?

AMD said...

@ Jughead & ALF

Like i said earlier, i DO NOT agree with DTV marketing policies & package changes etc. I was just speaking to C/C now and i told them so. As usual they had various excuses for it.

What im saying is that I beleive they have to charge us extra for adding PREMIUM channels, for the simple areson that they cost more.

As elakiri said i wont be suprised if they extend the "special offer" if they dont reach their target of customers by 30th sept.

elakiri said...

@amd,
These guys who decide packs and prices will deserve more than that of filth (not all the guys/gals working for DTV or guys wasting their time to defend DTV). So if you really want, U can get those too...

If you don't remember press campaigns before WC, then go back and read them again.

I know ADSL 1000 is not for everyone (wela baannanam madi tamaa). But if you find out how many use internet cards and 1000 connections and compare that with no. of 2400 ADSL connections, you'll realize (without knowing those facts don't argue about it).

Don't ask stupid q's like would you expect bla bla. What I'm talking about is fair trade practices. Don't be selfish. What will future customer get for 1550+vat ? (If this is real... not a gimmick)

AMD said...

I perfectly remember the ads of WC. I remember exactly what Nushad p said, and i was cursing him too when i was watching the matches. But nothing like that has been said about the 20/20 or RWC ? has it ?

ADSL - I aware of the facts & figures. But we were talking about movies, so i was referreing to those who will use the 1000 package for downloading / watching MOVIES.

AGAIN i say im dont agree with their trade practices. BUT they have to charge u extra for additional channels....thats common sense.

Lightning_Struck_Tower said...

"ADSL 1000... unlimited surf (1GB download) - WHAT CAN U DO WITH 1 GB???"

what you say is true. You download one movie more than half of your 1GB is gone. And surfing is not unlimited. 1GB limit includes surfing (SLT is not a saint either).

BUT,
There is the unlimited 2200 ADSL connection. I cannot imagine why anyone would go for DTV Rs 2100 package instead of that. Specially when bit torrent gives access to almost every shit on planet earth (including latest movies which HBO and Star Movies will air 1 and a half years later) without any cost at all.

Do you really think DTV raised the price because they are running at a loss with current pricing scheme? IF there were any sound competitor, they would never even think of raising the prices. It's their mobile business all over again.

cable said...

If they want to charge extra for additional channels why dont they create a new packge called "super rich 2100/-" instead of getting rid of old package structures.

Then there will be no probelms if ppl want to pay more and watch premium channels then they can migrate to 2100/- and anytime they want to they can downgrade to 1400/- just by paying the package adjustment charge.

With the proposed change what will happen to a customers who wants to downgrade from 2100/-?

DTV's motives are different thats why they are allegedlly getting rid of old package structers.

I use the words allegdlly because i believe 90% that this this is just a marketing tactic by dialog. In fact I dont belive they are going to introduce another transponder during the current year.

KIDO-CMB you are welcome to comment and disagree with me.

A La Carte is available from wednesday...

Gamini said...

guys. i'm back. Exams are over.

AMD, riky, priyantha ,technoguy and others. nice to see ya guys after a long time.

I 'm really happy now. We have loads of channels for us to watch. the prob is that we hav a lota channels to choose and i'm in raell dificulty to decide wat to watch and what not to.

i agrree with most of the guiys that we really cant expect any more new premium channels from dtv for 1600 can we?

anyway, we wont be switching to and kinda new package. like 2100 one. coz i really now have enough channels in the lineup to watch.

KIDO CMB

do u have any info about the rates of ala carte?

Micheal said...

"ADSL 1000... unlimited surf (1GB download) - WHAT CAN U DO WITH 1 GB???"

Hi Guys,
just a quick clarification - totally unrelated to the blog, pls forgive me. thanks.
with the above pkg, whats the definition of SURFING, as opposed to BROWSING ? and does VIEWING videos on UTUBE go as DOWNLOADING?
or is downloading the usage of the hard disk to store information from the net?
This is in regards to SLT 1000 ADSL package.
someone with knowledge on this pls clarify. Thanks.

Stay cool guys.
Micheal

Kavan said...

SLT-ADSL 1 GB limit is on total traffic on ADSL line. I use my ADSL connection for many hours per day. I kept track my usage for a month using a program I picked up online. I found that I use about 1GB per month, excluding downloading Movies or playing games.

So the SLT 1 GB ADSL connection is a good deal for anyone who does not download movies or music, or play games online.

Lightning_Struck_Tower said...

Micheal,
There is nothing unlimited in the ADSL 1000 pkg. Everything you do that involves data being downloaded into your computer counts. This involves basically everything (Surfing, chatting, FTP/HTTP downloads, P2P/UseNet downloads , Video streaming, checking webmail, etc) that you do online.
Just double click the internet connection icon in system tray and the number of bytes displayed under "Received" counts as downloaded data for that session.

russel said...

i am in the 1400 package at present, just becuase of the fact that ESPN, Tensports and all the premium sport channels are in the 1400 pack. So if they introduce ala carte for every channel what i will do is i will switch to the 100 package and get all the sport channels. cool. eh?

daya said...

Does anyone have any idea about when the new Transponder would be switched on. Anyone in this forum who has good connections with engineering guys at Dialog TV, Can you please inform them to bring the audio levels of all channels to one single level. Cannot be that difficult and should not take that much of time either.

russel said...

will someone pls tell me what kinda movies you can download from ADSL.

i just remember someone in this blog told that movies like spider man 3 can also be downloaded from the net. pls clarify.

at present i'm using LANKAbell cdma and its not that bad.

@ kavan,

The SLT usage meter does not function.So kindly share your source of the program you used for gauging your usage. thanks.

@Lightning_Struck_Tower
Thanks for the info.Would keeping the pc on-line continuosly for around 10 hrs per day on the SLT 1000 be exceeding the 1GB limit per month, if am not downloading movies and stuff, but only checking email, and of course refreshing this blog say once every half hour?
I know it depends on the number of bytes used, but when I used to view videos on utube the first month I got the 1000 pkg, my usage was an additional Rs. 2750. But later on not accessing utube my usage was within the 1 GB limit.
At the risk of sounding dumb, please forgive me, would it be ok and possibly within the limit to keep it on continuosly?

Stay cool.
Micheal.

@Micheal,

I used BWMeterPro. Download it from a reliable source. I used a 30 day free demo.

I keep my computer on 24x7 and still used about 1GB per month excluding Movies and games. This does include Skype usage of about 0.5MB per min.

Computer being on does not use Bandwidth, unless you have been infected, setup to automatically download large updates daily etc.

KIDO-CMB said...

Good morning, @ tecno- unable to give the name.
Channel freez/blackout still there. This becoz of the final upgrading. After that it wont happen again.

HI MATES.

DONT THESE MARKETING FOOLS HAVE ANY BRAIN TO IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF EXISTING CHANNELLS RATHER THAN ADDING AND ADDING CHANNELLS.

YESTERDAY THE PIXELATION WAS SO BAD, THAT FINALLY I SWITHCHED OFF THE TV. EVEN IF YOU HAVE 1000 CHANNELLS WHAT IS THE USE.

cbnsatcustomer said...

What is the 55th channel? Another movie channel?. I don't watch movies on DTV because no subtitles, some scenes are censored, can't watch in one sitting because of my kid and I prefer letterbox(16:9) format. I have downloaded more then 100 latest movies, TV series through the ADSL connection and Rapidshare premium account(or torrents sometimes) so far :). These movies come in divx or xvid format with no permemant subtitles. But you can download the subtitles from sites like subscene.com. You don't have to add (encode)subtitles to the movie. If you name the subtitle file the same as the movie file name the DVD player will show the subtitles.

Or if you watch on the computer, you can use the "Media Player Classic" to watch movies with subtitles without re-encoding the movie.

Jesika said...

Hi All

What is "A La Carte" means ?

cbnsatcustomer said...

If anyone is going to get ADSL, get the 2200 package.Its well worth it if you downlaod movies. Does anyone know when is Dialog going to change the stupid 3G/GPRS charges - 2cents per 1KB (Rs 20.48 per 1MB). Who will buy their 3G broadband at that rate?

kumara said...

A LA CRETE IS " CARROT ALE " WHICH USUSALLY GIVEN TO DONKEYS TO GET MORE WORK DONE OR SPECIAL THINGS DESIGHNED TO THE REQUIREMENT OF CUSTOMERS TO FOOL THEM AND EXPLOIT THEM AND MAXIMIZE PROFIT OF COMPANIES

JESSIKA,

IF YOU WANT A DEFINITION HERE IT IS

THESE TYPE OF DEFINITION CAN BE OBTAINED FROM ANY ONLINE DICTIONARY OR WIKIPEDIA

Lightning_Struck_Tower said...

cbnsatcustomer,
Rapidshare premium account! Good on ya man!
Another good site from which you can download subtitles is http://www.opensubtitles.org.
You can even download the DVD covers from http://www.cdcovers.cc

Michael,
Your usage went up because of YouTube. Video streaming usually consumes a lot of bandwidth. And as kavan said make sure you arent infected with nasty trojans and shit. Use a firewall and an updated antivirus to be on the safe side. And of course disable automatic updates in most software.

soorapappa said...

@kido-cmb,
Thanks for the news regarding a la carte. So.. according to DTV letter, from 1st of Oct 2007, there are only 3 packages for new customers to choose (550, 1550 and 2100) is it correct ? Old customers will continue to pay current rates ?
Is it possible for old customers to switch between old packages with new channels, after this date ?
Please clarify. Thanks !

@ soorapappa

I had a long chat with C/C yesterday.
After 30th Sept, there will still be the 500, 900 & 1400 BUT WITHOUT THE NEW CHANNELS.

cbnsatcustomer said...

Thanks LST.

soorapappa said...

@amd,
Thanks. Do you know anything about package changes for us after this date ? my lasy q.
Is it possible for old customers to switch between old packages with new channels, after this date ?

AMD said...

@ soorapappa

Whats ur package now?

kumara said...

Soorapappa,

WHAT THESE CC GUYS SAY IS THAT AFTER 30 SEPT FOR NEW CUSTOMERS THERE WILL NOT BE NEW CHANNELLS INDRODUCED NOW. BUT EXISTING CUSTOMERS UP TO 30TH SEPT WILL HAVE ALL CHANNELS THAT IS AVAILABLE UP TO THAT DATE.

IS THAT SO ?

Nathan said...

Hi all

last night at around 10.10 pm an automatic channel scan was done by DTV and a channel 55 appeared with no name.

Can anyone explain what this is about please?

cable said...

I dont think we can take C/C guys word over the official position set out by DTV's letter. In that it clearly says that the packages will be changed to newer rates. There is no mention of the existing packages being continued other than saying that existing customers will not have any changes

bank_dude said...

Guys, sorry about this. Does anyone know the secret code to restart Nokia phones?

soorapappa said...

@amd,
I'm in 900.

star said...

Hi Friends,

Please check Dish tv's new website(http://www.dishtvindia.in) has been launched officially today and it looks to more informative and updated and also better than previous one.

AMD said...

This is the deal: ( I DONT AGREE WITH THIS POLICY OK, SO DONT JUMP ON MY CASE. IM JUST CLARIFYING DETAILS )

For current 1400 packages and people who intend upgrading to 1400 before 30th sept:

U ill have all the current channels & proposed new channels in the future. There is no effect on those packages whatsover.

For 1400 after sept 30th:

U can still get 1400 but without any new channels, ie: the channels that were introduced after DTV took over. If u want them & future channels ull have to get the 2100 package.

If u upgrade or downgrade after 30th it will have to done between the new package rates.

The same applies to other packages.

soorapappa said...

@cable,
As far as I've understood, they don't change rates. If new customers need new channels, they need to pay more. Not sure... I'm also not glad to get CC word on this. That's why asked from kido-cmb/riky or anyone from DTV end. LOL

@kido-cmb, riky or anyone who knows exact real details, please respond.

Amalka said...

@cable,
As far as I've understood, they don't change rates. If new customers need new channels, they need to pay more.

Exactly!

Like i said, DTV is not CBN SAT and they dont wanna have the same prices & polices as them. The new package rates mean that they officaly have DTV customers and not OLD CBN sat clients.

Jughead said...

its obvious by the content in their letter that....existing customers and new comers before 30th sept will be getting it at 1400/-, 900/- etc. but from 1st Oct the same package will be given at 2100/-, 1550/- etc.
thats why they say that the new channels are given free to existing customers.

arnold perera said...

Just answer this simple question.
Just think this way,
I am very old customer (CBNSAT), now i got 900/- package, coming November (Think now November) I want to more to premium. What will be the package rate for me, will it be 1400/- or 2100/-.

If they say I have to move to 2100/-, and I do so, now after few days, I dislike I want to downgrade, what will be the package rate, 900/- or 1550/-

AMD said...

@ arnold perera

What u say is correct.

But i can give a better option.

Upgrade to 1400 before Oct and ull have no problem with any channels.

kumara said...

MACHANG ARNOLD,

THERE WILL NOT BE A PACKAGE FOR 1400/- IN NOVAMBER. IT WILL BE 2100/-

EXISTING CUSTOMERS WHO ARE IN 1400/- PKG TILL 30 SEPT WILL BE CONTINUED AS 1400/. NO BODY CAN HAVE THAT PKG AFTER 30 SEPTEMBER.

IF YOU UPGRADE NOW TO 1400/- AND DOWN GRADE AFTER 30 SEPT IT SHOULD BE 1550- AS THERE IS NO 900/-PKG BY THAT TIME.

THIS IS MY UNDERSTANDING.

THE WHOLE OBJECTIVE OF THIS DTV BULLSHIT IDEA IS TO TEPMT ALL CUSTOMERS TO UPGRDAE BEFORE 30TH SEPTEMBER TO 1400/-.

THAT IS WHY THEY ARE DOING ALL THESE DIRTY THINGS.

nimal said...

@arnold
Q1 900 - 2,100
Q2 2,100 - 1,550

Punishment Cost of upgrade/downgrade 650

I think Kumara is on the dot
"THE WHOLE OBJECTIVE OF THIS DTV BULLSHIT IDEA IS TO TEPMT ALL CUSTOMERS TO UPGRDAE BEFORE 30TH SEPTEMBER TO 1400/-"

kumara said...

MACHNAG ARNOLD...

THE OTHER THING IS IF YOU UPGARDE NOW UP TO 30 SEP YOU WILL HAVE TO PAY ONLY 1400/

BUT FOR THE SAME PACKAGE YOU WILL HAVE TO PAY 2100/- AFTER THAT DATE. BUT YOU WILL HAVE ONE ADVANTAGE. THAT IS DTV WILL GIVE ALL NEW PRIME CHANNELLS ONLY TO 2100/ PKG. BUT NOTHING TO EXISTING 1400/ PKG.

DTV INNOVATIVE CUSTOMER CARE HAS PUT CUSTOMERS BETWEEN DEVIL AND THE SEA. EITHER YOU MAUS SELECT DEVIL OR JUMP TO SEA. END RESULT IS SAME. IT IS LIKE COMMITTING SUICIDE..

AMD said...

DTV will give all new channels to 1400 as well as to 2100 package

This is the info i have, anyone who wants to believe it can do so.

Even though prices will be increased from 1st October, I think they will introduce Lower Prices for Customer buying during Christman season and Sinhala Tamil New Year Season.

That way they can easily get customers. They must be having enough brains to realise that few can afford to buy for Rs.2100/= or at least Rs.1500/= .

I hope Dialog has some good reason for this price increase. Well, its their loss! Comet Digital is planning to launch soon, and LBN too is expanding both channels and coverage.

But we can be sure that when competition comes, Dialog TV customers will benefit most. Surely you can guess how. It has already being mentioned before.

If Dialog increase prices of the packages in order to minimize losses, that is the biggest mistake they are doing.

I also got the letter today. According to that if the existing customers want to upgrade, you have to do it before 1st of september 2007 and new connections before 30th September to get the addtional channels.

hsjaya said...

KIDO CMB,

I am little confused about the pricing of DTV. I will jot down what I understood. Pl correct me if I am wrong.

1. There will be no pkg for 2100/-

2. Existing customers who are in 1400/- pkg will enjoy the channells available now.

3.Any customer joining after 30th Sept will have to join 1400/- pkg without 14new channlles.

4.If these new customers want to have new channells they will have to pay Rs.50/- additional for each channell. For example if they want to have 04 channells they will have to pay additional 200/-. So total cost will 1650 + Vat.


5.Other packages ( 500/- 900/- )custmers also can have addtional channells by selecting set plans offered by DTV which is a preset menu.

KIDO CMB...

WHAT HAPPENS IF A CUSTOEMR WANTS TO SELECT 06 NEW CHANNELS ACCORDING TO HIS WISHES. CAN IT BE DONE ?

WHAT IS THE POSiTION OF THE NEW CHANNELLS INTRODUCED AFTER 30TH SEPTEMBER. WILL THOSE CHANNELS BE AVAILABLE TO 1400/- CUSTOMERS OR DO THEY HAVE TO PAY EXTRA RS. 50/- OR WHATEVER FOR THOSE CHANNELS.

DialogTV is not going to be limited to DVB-S sattellite tv service.

They will broadcast DialogTV using

Yes if you want u can upgrade ur pkg also. its foc with the new channels till 30th sep.

3.Any customer joining after 30th Sept will have to join 1400/- pkg without 14new channlles.
SET PLAN is avl'ble for them

4.If these new customers want to have new channells they will have to pay Rs.50/- additional for each channell. For example if they want to have 04 channells they will have to pay additional 200/-. So total cost will 1650 + Vat.
No need to pay for a channel. per group u have to pay 50rs to 400Rs.

under 1 group 4 to 3 channels availible.

hey how long does DTV usually take to activate a connection? I've been trying for three days and so far they've only talked bullshit.

@LST,

No piont of talking to DTV CC on Fridays, Satdurdays & Sundays. They cannot do much on those days. Better if you speak to them now and made a complaint and they act fast for the complaint.

Interesting… I might try some of this on my blog, too. It’s quite interesting how you sometimes stop being innovative and just go for an accepted solution without actually trying to improve it… you make a couple of good points.
