Channels Mysterious disappearing

According to reliable information coming in it seems that History Channel has gone off air under mysterious circumstances. According to reports Dialog TV Customer Care is giving excuses which vary from agent to agent. Some say it will be back during the day whereas some are saying by August 3rd or even later and the reason is said to be maintenance whereas others call it a system failure.

It should be said that initially Zone Reality was taken off air (before replacement the channel used to mysteriously disappear from time to time) and replaced with NDTV Good Times (instead of a quality channel like BBC Entertainment or Disney Channel) and now will History Channel be the next to go off air and replaced by another Indian Masthana channel. Wonder what will be next? Instead of reducing Indian stuff it seems that Dialog is trying to increase Indian content on their platform.

We urge all subscribers to call and protest whenever Dialog TV takes a channel off air under a lousy excuse such as maintenance or system failure.

Please keep us updated on the latest developments regarding Dialog TV.

Can This be due to MPEG4 platform changers?

Today morning there were another issue,
.
Around 5.30am to 5.45am, channel EYE is off air,
instead CH EYE, a snowy version of Star World is broadcated on that slot and is the same content as original feed,
.
i dnt knw whether this issue is still exisiting, but its a definite thing that they are having technical darwbacks at their end even at this very moment.
.
As for HISTORY channel, if this is another way to change into HINDI damn shame on you.
.
also to DTV heads, please mind that, History channel is not like Channel C and plenty of heads down here is watching than seeying it.
.
With technical matters, we all have a great experince that DTV is not experienced at all, therefore as the few other fellows said that it recommence on 3rd Aug, it is ok to wait a few moment but LISURA i think this is a high time to customers to re-unite against this massacre.

For any issues, why on earth cant DTV send us an announcement like they do when we dont pay our bills ?

I wonder why this technical issue happens only for History Channel. I notice that, Program information and time slot information is not displaying for NetGEO, NetGeo Adventure, Discovery and Animal Plant, Hallmark and some other sport channels. Also, Still I haven't received August program guide.Did you got it?

This is not the service we are expecting or paying for. If they are scheduling to do a maintenance, they have responsibility to inform in advance. Or at least display a message on the screen while maintaining period.

It seems DVT pushing us to migrate to another service provider. Isn't it?

According to their reports, DVT is expecting to increase their subscriber count up to 500,000 within this year. Please stop dreaming and at least try to keep your existing subscribers with you :-)

Is there any way to listen to FM channels from DTV?

Observer said...

Here is a list of good channels they took away by giving flimsy excuses

1. Fashion Tv
2. Animax
3. VH1 (for some time )
4. Zone reality

If they attempt to take one more quality English channel away, I will switch to Dish TV or LBN in a snap !

Its high time that I say tah-tah bye to the 17500 I paid for the good old CBNSat.

The idiots at DTV, have a pathetic taste it seems. Or they are superbly cunning and taking the customers for a ride.

Do you think they have suddenly fallen in love witht he customers and giving this discout ?

Going by the dirty tricks thay do at DTV , What I think think is they will have to do this anyway once Airtel launches operations next month possibly. Before that they are attempting to get 477 per customer as a premtive damage control measure.

Im waiting till Airtel lauches operations
