Testing on channels 10, 11 & 12

According to information being received Dialog TV is testing CH10 with Rupavahini, CH11 with ITN, CH12 with Swarnavahini. We are unable to clarify the reason behind this. Maybe we can expect some new channels on these slots or maybe they are planning to increase bandwidth on other transponders by moving more channels to 4th tp.

Ok lets get crazy here, it just maybe that Dialog is planning to launch Nat Geo Wild, FX, FX Crime which are the Fox channels that were added on Indian DTH service Sun Direct. These are all assumptions and may amount to nothing.

Please keep us updated on the latest on Dialog TV as the days progress. Posted via Yahoo GO!

hi...

any body knows whether the Formula1 races are shown in any of the available channels in PEO TV.

Eurosports UK shows but not sure whether the local feed has it?

podiman said...

@hp,
To watch Formula 1 races you have to get multichoise. It shows practices from Friday and Saturday(live) and the race will be live without any ads. It is a treat to watch a race like that.

hp said...

@ Podiman,

thanks, but I'm confused!!!

what do you mean by "multichoise"

podiman said...

@hp,
It is another DTH package. Please send me your e-mail address.

ilves said...

Raj said...

I think the world credit crunch has hit DTV in a big way.New channels/MPEG4 will not happen for next few months.According to them new connection sales are slow and expanding/spending has been halted by the parent company has continuelly DTV is a loss making venture.
So guys we will have to live it and i am alreadr fed with these indian channels.

SOME BAD NEWS ABOUT DIALOG - BUT FOR SOME PEOPLE THIS MAY BE GOOD NEWS

Sri Lanka Dialog says VRS costs not yet known
April 07, 2009 (LBO) – Sri Lanka's top celco, Dialog Telekom says it had offered a voluntary retirement scheme to employees as part of a broader cost-cutting exercise, but the total costs were not known as yet.

Dialog Telekom, a unit of Telekom Malaysia, as well as other operators have had revenues and profits hit by a raging price war.
The costs of the scheme would be published with the next quarterly statement, the firm said in a stock exchange filing.

Responding to a media report which said the firm was looking to shed 1,500 staff, Dialog said the firm has not "published or specified" a target and costs would depend on the number of employees accepting the scheme

The scheme was applicable to all employees in the executive and management grades, the company said.

@ hp & radikal zee,

cardsharing is a good alternative. but still there are lot of risks involved in it.

1. You don't know to whom you are paying for & where the cardsharing server is located. Most of the time both these are from outside SL. So you don't have any control over it. So what can you do if they suddenly vanish like "sakvithi" guys?

2. If something happens to your decoder (Dreambox) you don't have any service centers or authorized dealers to repair your Dreambox in SL. You'll have to ship it back to the agent of the country where you bought it from.

3. You have to depend on both satellite & the internet. So if one of these goes down then you won't be able to watch anything.

4. This is an illegal method. If Dialog TV or any other DTH operator gets to know that their signals are being unofficially decrypted & re-transmitted over the internet they can sue your cardsharing service provider.

So think about these things before moving into cardsharing.

Radikal Zee said...

@buddhi,
thanks for the insight! appreciate it.

Dimu said...

@buddhi

according to your No 1 comment cardsharing servers are not located in Sri Lanka.
So as of your 4th comment Dialog can't sue for a company out side of Sri Lanka.

Also CS servers don't re-transmit channels. They only descrypt channels via internet.

You can't compair paying for a CS server & depositing money with Sakvithi. For a paid CS server, you have to pay only small amount for a whole year. (ex - US$ 75 - 100)

I'm using CS for more than 18 months & I have no issue till now.

buddhi said...

@ dimu,

Why not? They can. My friend, there is this thing called "International Law". So under that if anyone in your country get affected by another company outside your country then the company in your country can file a case against them in the court of the other country. Eg:- MTV (Maharaja Television) in SL did this long time ago against MTV (Music Television) in India when they launched their channel here using the same name!

They do re-transmit. They get the encrypted signal, find the decryption key & transmit it to users over the internet. So that is also one method of re-transmission.

US$ 75 - 100 is around 7500 - 10000 in LKR. This might be a small amount for some people. But not for everyone in SL. What if they vanish after getting money from you? Who will take the responsibility?

I know there are lot of people who use this method. But they do it at their own risk. You must be one of them. But it's not the best option for all. People must know the risks behind it.

Breaking NEWS: HTV now on Dialog TV

SLP said...

@CardSharing

Guys, i dont think that it need to be bothered for long. Cardsharing is exist for a long period and as someone said the risk is always and already there.

But my point is it's worth taking the risk unless if you haven't both background as well as connectivity.

In these days, Internet is everywhere. As long as the DTH is up and running soundly, the saterllite also is there to braodcast it. (unless some kind of physical disaster to either satellite or the communication). so no worries on connectivity.

As for laws, well you can challange persons via international laws is right.There are occasions. There is the possiblity for sueing agents outside your territory under such law.

But this international laws has several exceptions. For example a country like erithria or north korea does not covers under International law and is always safe for CS servers. Even countries like rumania, bulgaria or even iran is not considering international laws exclusively.

The closest example would be sudan where the president is under arrest warrent from the international courts while the multichoice can be viewed without any interruption to them.

so guys what i say is be practical here. Dialog is not going to pay millions of dollars only to prevent 100 customers of DTV for household cardsharing. will they?

It's not the case. We all use pirated software. But the leader of all, Microsoft is not bothering to catch the culprit fully. What they try to do is prevention from there-end and not in retail level.

So it's most propably OK with CS. As such if you have required bakground, i think you could move without worries.

@podiman
Mail me the details at lakmalslp(at)yahoo(dot)com too please.
