Happy New Year 2009 & Channel Replacement

According to information being received it seems that TBO has been taken off air and will be replaced by "Zee Music" from tomorrow onwards just over a year after "TBO" was introduced on Dialog TV.

The replacement may be due to the lack of interest in the channel by the poorly catered to Tamil subscribers on Dialog TV. However instead of replacing "TBO" with another Tamil channel, Dialog chooses to replace it with a Hindi music channel called "Zee Music". The logic or the lack of logic behind this cannot be explained but we expect a silly excuse soon enough.

Well please keep us updated on the latest on Dialog TV as the days progress. We take this opportunity to wish the Management & Staff of Dialog TV, Dialog TV Subscribers Unite, Our fellow Bloggers

"A Very Happy and Prosperous 2009.
May the New Year be a Blessed one for all of you"

We thank all of you for your contributions and also thank Dialog TV for the wonderful support that was extended towards us.

Happy New Year everyone..... I know why dialog replaced TBO with Zee Music.. The smart folks who make decision's up there think more people in Srilanka speak and understand Hindi than Tamil... Well done DTV.. Please make more fantastic decisions like this in this new year too.. You guys are brilliant...

My brother bought new DTV connection with 999/= package. I was surprised when I noticed he has received OLD "CBNSat"decorder with CBNSat emblam. I'm not sure it is used one but definitly DTV now reselling our previous decorders.

does anyone know how we could watch Englsih FA CUP football this year? It seems like Sony PIX have got this rights in Indian and therefore we Sri Lankans have no way to watch this.

yasanga said...

after long time i thought of bringing
one important aspect of dtv into your consideration.
previously VAT % was 17%.then it reduced to 15%Accordingly they should
have reduced our bills.(since they charge VAT directly from us.But now effective from 01/01/2008 VAT reduced to 12%.so accordingly they have to reduce the bill.its illegal
to charge same amount.pls look into
this matter Dont allow anybody to rob us.

Anuruddha said...

hey guys we need a set plan for SSTAR MOVIES.... DTV have separate set plan for AXN, so they can add separate set plan for STAR MOVIES too ryt....

Or they can add STAR MOVIES on set plan 10... actually itz worth to add on a set plan because most ppl luv to watch STAR MOVIES....

If here any Dilaog guy plz consider abt dis :)

WISHIN U ALL VRY HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

Xyclone said...

Dear All,
I've recently got a DTV connection and i also got an OLD "CBN Sat" decorder...!! And later i found that some menu features are not available in that...The most important feature which is missing is that you don't get a small preview window of the right hand side when u enter into menu..!!
So wut can i do for that? Are they replacing old decorders with new ones...??

Chandi said...

I hope that English FA cup is available with Euro Sports in Peo TV. It has many football & Rugby. It would be one method to see it

Conny said...

I would like to gain some technical knowledge about Satellite broadcast.

Can anybody explain how DTV gets the channels and how they are broadcast to viewers... and also how viewers get only those channels which are allowed based on their respective packages...

thanks in advance./././

Happy new yer my dear friends.......!!!!
Why DTV is allocated FTA channel to their higher packages. According to letter from Asset media (Pvt.)Ltd on 15th January 2007 they promised to add all Zee channel to our packages at No extra cost. But today.... They added Zee Music to 1375/= package onwards. Why DTV change their past promises.... What a bullshit Management... Hey,,,, DTV add Zee Music to your 500/= who is purchased before packages up grade. Because this is a FTA channel. And DTV replace this channel with payed TBO channels.
Pls. mentioned Zee Music is currently not available for 500/= Value package which is introduced last year special promotion on valentine. (2008 February) This package purchased only previous DTV customers. So they are allow to view ZEE Music channel with this packages. Pls. do something to add Zee music channel to this package........

Bharti Airtel to launch Sri Lanka operations on 12th January 2009

Radikal Zee said...

@ flash2000lk,
what is the dtv package u got? i think they r giving old decoders for people who get the packages without HBO channels (mpeg 4). if they still give old decorders for even ppl with HBO channels then this mpeg4 switch is a total trick!

Conny said...

I saw the first Airtel advertisement on TV this morning... Shahruk Khan is there saying " Hello Sri Lanka". The background music is the same one used in the Indian Airtel ads...( Nyone 1 having DTV should know the Airtel ads shown on Dtv channels )
It is sponsoring the hourly news bulletin of Rupavahini....

Conny said...

airtel is commnecingoperations on the 12th of january.. It was stated in the above ad....

Nokia said...

@ Conny
All the adds has to be in local channels and DTV is only a way of receiving loacl channels... It's not Funny thing to have Airtel Adds on DTV. Even Mobitel, Hutch, Tigo adds and there programms also there on DTV. Infutured you may get Airtel sponsored programms on DTV and all local chanells :)

LANKA INFO said...

I dont think AirTel can break Dialog & Mobitel. thair target may be Tigo & Hutch.

We all have good & bad experience from both Dialog & Mobitel. At the END of the day the Service is very good comparing with those days.

More than that no one is going/ willing to terminate their OLD own Numbers.
…at last I am not going to lose or loooseee… my 777.lol. It’s Unique.

Radikal Zee said...

@lanka info
number portability might break the ice in switching the networks, i heard it's coming around februaray.

LANKA INFO said...

@ Radikal,
Tks, i ddnt knw that. but its avl'ble in India i guess.

Rukmal said...

you can register & receive your own Airtel now now. Hurry go to the nearest Airtel branch

Radikal Zee said...

u can get an airtel connection free by just handing over a NIC copy for prepaid or NIC and billing proof for post paid. u can even choose ur own number 075 7XXXXXX. sorry for going off topic.

Conny said...

@ Nokia,

Heh heh Bro, I wonder whether u got me correctly, but I don't get u at all. and what I meant was the Indian feeds Of DTV channels such as Ten Sports, Discovery and etc. and the ads of Airtel India ads... Nyways No worries....
DTV is giving free of charge publicity to all other operators in SL thru DTV.. Heee...Heee...

@ Radikal Zee
Machan number portability is NOT coming in February. It might not come to Sri Lanka this year or the next, judging by the reluctance of main stakeholders Dialog and Mobitel for this move (for obvious reasons). And TRC is really dragging its feet on this one. It is one of the hardest mobile policies to implement in any country and I'm pretty sure it was not there in India.

Really sorry for going off topic - but just to clear a misconception.

Chandika Gunawardhana said...

Is there any chance of watching SkySports through DTV?

podiman said...

@Chandika Gunawardhana,
No it is not possible through DTV for the moment. What are you looking for?? May be there are other ways.

IPTV said...

Check Sky ports with Peo guys. There channel line up is more biased fro european channels. But not in there comming soon

Dialog TV Software upgrading announcement!

WELE said...

when you do a channel re scan - it indicates the presence of a single Radio channel in addition to TV channels. may be Dialog is planning to add radio channels again. but when you switch to the Radio channel using TV/Radio button on the remote it only shows the word RADIO on the screen but no sound!. may be they are just testing

Nokia said...

I could not keep the decorder on last night.....

Is there any way to do the upgrading manually?

LANKA INFO said...

u can do manualy.. go to menu & click the IRD upgrade button.

Nokia said...

@ Lanka Info
Thanks....
I'm having the new MPEG4 Decorder
you have to go to Menu > Info > Software Upgrade. It taks about 10-15 minutes......

Thanks!

LANKA INFO said...

@ Nokia - Great & Tks,

Clarity is superb now comparing with those days. I checked with 2, 3 new setup boxes.

wat abut ur's?

Conny said...

@ LANKA INFO

I never received any automated message by DTV saying about any software upgrade and so didn't keep the decoder on...

Hope to try as u have said.
