SMS Programme Updates

A few days ago Dialog TV introduced a new service that enables subscribers to receive programme updates on their mobile. This is a good service and an extra additional such as a portal where subscribers can log in and set reminders for programmes of their choice will be a welcome addition to the SMS updates.

At present subscribers are receiving two updates on a daily basis. We suggest that Dialog TV should update live events separately. Yesterday at 6:30am the American Music Awards were telecast "Live" over Star World but the Programme SMS update highlighted the repeat that was scheduled for 8pm. It would have been better if an SMS regarding the "Live" event was sent out on the previous day. The "Live" event SMS could highlight "Live" sports, music events, etc.

Dialog should also work on a WAP portal which can also be used to access the guides and set special SMS reminders. These services should be offered free of charge for all subscribers of Dialog TV. In addition the "SMS Programme Update" service should be offered to subscribers of other mobile operators and also to CDMA services.

It seems that the reduction in signal quality on certain transponders has been resolved upto a great extent with transponders showing a higher signal quality levels compared to the reduced levels that were experienced for the last few weeks. Anyone who is experiencing otherwise is welcome to comment here.

Many of us are awaiting that great day when SET SAB is officially kicked off Dialog TV's lineup. We hope that day arrives soon.

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