IPL on Dialog TV over SET Max

Contrary to rumors being circulated we would like to confirm that IPL Season 2 will be telecast over SET Max on Dialog TV. Information that Dialog TV is still negotiating with SET Max cannot be true as the channel is already available on the platform.

In addition pay television operators only rebroadcast channels therefore they do not have to pay for content, so rumors of Dialog TV requiring permission and requiring to pay more to telecast IPL cannot be true. Dialog TV has made a bad move by removing the Set Plans containing SET Max forcing subscribers from lower packages to upgrade to higher packages to watch IPL, we hope the set plans are reintroduced soon. Please keep us updated on the latest regarding Dialog TV as the days progress. Posted via Yahoo GO!

@everyone
With the recent information on IPL it looks like we are able to watch the season without any hassle.

Anyway in the meantime I have posted a file on rapidshare (http://rapidshare.com/files/222293950/P2P.rar) for certain p2p tv steams found around internet for view over high bandwidth connection.

This file contains 3 p2p software (my favourite is sopcast) where you can receive HD quality tv channels including National Geographic, Discovery, Star Movies, Star world and Espn etc.,

The streams require atleast ADSL connections and if not may get strucked sequence,If you already have them worth try.

Meanwhile you may try following link to view streams directly for certain news channels.
(http://www.myp2p.eu/channel.php)
and (http://www.1tvpc.com) if you have enough money to pay.

@podiman
DM500 is on the way, I will get you once i receive the stuff. Thanks again for your information.

Dialog says pay TV will take time to break even

The pay TV business of Sri Lanka’s Dialog Telekom group will take time to become profitable, with break even estimated at around 250,000 customers, its chief executive Hans Wijayasuriya said.

Losses in the pay TV business of the company, a unit of Telekom Malaysia, contributed to an annual group loss of 2.8 billion rupees in 2008, against a profit of 8.9 billion a year earlier.

Wijayasuriya said the experience elsewhere in pay TV is that it usually takes time to sign on enough subscribers to achieve break even.

"Dialog TV has a projection of achieving a break even point at around 250,000 customers," Wijayasuriya told LBO in an interview. "We now have 150,000.

"As is the case in the pay TV industry worldwide, it takes some time to get to that critical mass of customers, to therefore amortise the cost of satellite bandwidth, satellite transponders, and also content and programming costs."

Wijayasuriya, who is also group chief operating officer of Malaysia’s TM International, the parent firm of Dialog Telekom, said Dialog’s pay TV business was growing well but declined to say when it would start making money.

"I would not want to comment on a specific time frame, but Dialog TV has been growing very well and is highly accepted in the market place," he said.

"We have 150,000 customers who have joined us over the last 18 months. Therefore to achieve another 100,000 we’re probably talking about 12-15 months."

Apart from losses in its pay TV and broadband business, Dialog has also bee hurt by a fierce price war that began with the entry of India’s Bharti Airtel into the mobile market.

The company is relying on alternative revenue streams such as broadband, pay TV and fixed wireless as future growth areas as growth slowed in the mobile market, which it still dominates.

But industry analysts have warned that economic slowdown which has reduced consumer spending power could affect Dialog TV’s immediate growth prospects.

Furthermore, the firm might have to pay more for foreign content with the depreciation of the rupee against the dollar.

The Dialog group has announced a series of cost cutting measures, including a voluntary retirement scheme to trim staff costs.

podiman said...

Australia vs Pakistan 1st ODI from Dubai, match starts at 4.30pm on Tensports.

Nokia said...

As per the agreement that DTV is having with SET Max, SET Tv. Dialog cant telecast any channel which shows IPL Live. I think that is the reason to stop Channel Eye during the telecast IPL……
From Dialog point it’s right. But from Customers point of view it’s a problem. And this only effect low package users like 250, 500. Even newly introduced Big Deal package also having set max.
