Channel Eye Blackout during IPL Telecast

Dear Admin,

Channel Eye Blackout during IPL Telecast

The reason for the blackout during IPL match is because we do not have rights to show the IPL via Rupavahini/Eye. (Terrestrial – rebroadcasting via DTH)

Pls communicate this to the fellow bloggers.

Regards

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The above is an email we received from Dialog TV regarding the blackout of Channel Eye during the IPL. We understand from unconfirmed sources that there is a strict restriction by SET Max on teresstrial rebroadcasting of IPL, to make sure that the IPL matches are not uplinked by the FTA broadcasters which will result in a loss of revenue to the Satellite channels.

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

Its nice to see that DTV is following this blog! Hopefully, they will take most of the criticisms made here in a constructive way and improve themselves.

@ Shit:
PEO & LBN can rebroadcast the match, coz they r not the DTH providers.

@ Bkhan,

there is no blackout of channel eye in Peo Tv.. It is even better than Set Max.. Channel eye does not even puts ads between overs whereas set max is waiting till the last ball to get on to ads...

madhusha99 said...

We need new channels immediately!!!!!!!!!!! Dialogtv you have to put new channels soon!!!!!!
LBN test MGM Asia first time in Srilanka!!!! Dialogtv doing nothing!!! I think they are sleeping!!!!

Channel Eye does put ads most of the time between overs. Mostly Tamil Ads, TIGO and stuff.

Anyways the feed is much better than the production of SET MAX.

AMD said...

Has anyone checked the EYE channel feed on DIALOG MY TV during IPL

@madhusha99

MGM is a useless movie channel.
Its in my DishTV too. But i couldn't find any interesting movie on it.

DishTV added WB (Warner Bros). Its a good movie channel !!
