Islamic channel QTV to replace Sony SAB

According to unconfirmed reports the Islamic Channel QTV (Quran Television) is expected to replace Sony SAB temporarily from today.

QTV will become the third religious channel on Dialog TV after "The Buddhist" (Buddhist Channel) and "God TV" (Christian Channel). As for the other two religious channels we believe that anyone who wants to watch this channel will have to call and get it activated.

In other news, SET India has won the broadcast rights for cricket played in New Zealand. For more on this please read the article titled "Sony bags rights for New Zealand Cricket" in the TV & Radio Sri Lanka Forum.

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

For football fans,

2 UEFA champions league matches are shown each match night on Ten Sports with one match live and the other delayed. Yersterday they showed the delayed match live on Zee sports. Since Zee sports and Ten have the same owners they must be working like espn & star.

Accordingly today Ten should show the Manchester united match live and Zee sports the Arsenal vs Sevilla match. cant confirm as the zee sports schedule cant be found the one on their web site dosent work.

GOOD NEWS FOR THE FOUR FACED BORN AGAIN P- J/R/F/619


Nebraska state senator sues God in protest of another lawsuit
Associated Press
Sept. 17, 2007 04:44 PM

LINCOLN, Neb. - The defendant in a state senator's lawsuit is accused of causing untold death and horror and threatening to cause more still. He can be sued in Douglas County, the legislator claims, because He's everywhere.

State Sen. Ernie Chambers sued God last week. Angered by another lawsuit he considers frivolous, Chambers says he's trying to make the point that anybody can file a lawsuit against anybody.

Chambers says in his lawsuit that God has made terroristic threats against the senator and his constituents, inspired fear and caused "widespread death, destruction and terrorization of millions upon millions of the Earth's inhabitants."





The Omaha senator, who skips morning prayers during the legislative session and often criticizes Christians, also says God has caused "fearsome floods ... horrendous hurricanes, terrifying tornadoes."

He's seeking a permanent injunction against the Almighty.

Chambers said the lawsuit was triggered by a federal suit filed against a judge who recently barred words such as "rape" and "victim" from a sexual assault trial.

The accuser in the criminal case, Tory Bowen, sued Lancaster District Judge Jeffre Cheuvront, claiming that he violated her free speech rights.

Chambers said Bowen's lawsuit is inappropriate because the Nebraska Supreme Court has already considered the case and federal courts follow the decisions of state supreme courts on state matters.

"This lawsuit having been filed and being of such questionable merit creates a circumstance where my lawsuit is appropriately filed," Chambers said. "People might call it frivolous but if they read it they'll see there are very serious issues I have raised."

U.S. District Judge Richard Kopf, in an order last week, expressed doubts about whether Bowen's lawsuit "has any legal basis whatsoever" and said sanctions may be imposed against Bowen and her attorneys if they fail to show cause for the lawsuit.

The Associated Press usually does not identify accusers in sex-assault cases, but Bowen has allowed her name to be used publicly because of the issue over the judge's language restrictions.

Cheuvront declared a mistrial in the sexual assault trial in July, saying pretrial publicity made it impossible to gather enough impartial jurors.

AMD & Russell:
:: Sorry for the delay, QTV is available form today night.

:: TP4 is ready to launch.

@KIDO CMB

AMD said...

@ KIDO-CMB

Do u hav any idea of what the new channels are ?

Did any of ull notice that the proposed channel line up on comet is 99% same as LBN ? hmmmmmm

alf said...

KIDO - CMB,WHO TOLD YOU? LORD ANTHONY,NUSHAD PERERA,BANDARA ATTANAYAKE OR DAS?

cable said...

@KIDO-CMB

when will TP4 be activated?

TechnoGuy said...

@ AMD
I agree. Something fishy going on I think.

Its like Comet has copied LBN's channel list and then added the Dialog's advantage channels also to that.


@ KIDO-CMB
Thanks. Please provide more information when you can, and ignore what some silly bloggers say.

AMD said...

@ Techno

Yes it certainly looks like that ?
I know this may sound silly but can Comet be taking the LBN & DTV feed & re-broadcasting it ? Would that be cheaper than getting the rights directly ? Can they do that if they come to an agreement with DTV & LBN?

It would be something like Dialog renting space in their GSM towers to other providers and vice versa.

TechnoGuy said...

@ AMD
Dialog won't allow it. LBN might be more merciful. But the channel broadcasters won't allow it.

The broadcast contract is only for one service. It cannot be used for multiple services. That means even Dialog has to get a second contract if they want to broadcast DTV channels on DVB-T or else.

So Comet cannot borrow channels, unless illegally (which they are a bit known for).

I wonder what is going on.

alf said...

WHAT'S THE BIG FUSS WITH YOU GUYS?THEY WILL ALSO GET THE SAME RIGHTS LIKE LBN & DTV AND BROADCAST,COMET HAS BEEN IN THIS BUSINESS FOR OVER 10 YEARS AND ARE NOT MAD TO DO WHAT YOU ARE THINKING.YOU DONT HAVE TO WONDER WHATS GOING ON,THEY ARE UPGRADING THEIR SERVICE TO MEET THE COMPETETION AND SURVIVE AND THATS VERY VERY GOOD FOR THE PAY TV MARKET IN THE COUNTRY.

YOU SHOULD GET OUT OF THE THEORY THAT COMET SHOULD VANISH FROM THE MARKET AND ONLY DTV AND LBN SHOULD SURVIVE.

ASK KIDO-CMB BECAUSE HE HAS BEEN SPOT ON AND THANKS FOR QTV.

Sunnetworks (India) is starting their DTH services vey soon. The STB + DISH with LNB and cables free of charge. Starting with 75 channels for Indian Rs 75 only. I reckon they are using MPEG 4 systum. Hope there will be a local agent for SUNNETWORKS in SRI LANKA.

russel said...

Friends, Srilankans, Countrymen!! Lend me your ears. At this point I would like to thank Mr KIDO-CMB for getting opinions from the dTV subscribers and giving the channels what we have been waiting for year. Guess what its QTV this time. Its like a dream. Hope he would consider adding more religious channels to the channel lineup. There are around 100 religions in asia and we hope that he would consider adding at least 100 more religious channels so it would enlarge the customer base.
