Suba Aluth Awruddak Wewa and Heritage Television

We like to take this opportunity to wish the Management & Staff of Dialog TV, the members of Dialog TV Subscribers Unite and our fellow bloggers "Suba Aluth Awruddak". We hope that you will continue to be with us as you have been with us giving us the breaking news many times even before we get them. A big Thank You goes out to all of you.

In other news Dialog TV is carrying out test transmissions of local channel "Heritage Television" on Channel Number 63. At the moment the channel is said to be free for all packages and since it on test mode it has to be activated by giving a call to customer care. There are some customer care agents who are clueless of this channel so the best thing is to refer to the channel number and ask for activation.

It is good that Dialog TV is looking at adding channels focusing on Sri Lanka but we feel that Dialog TV should not neglect on adding international channels when they are launched. Channels like Disney, AXN Beyond, BBC Entertainment, WB, SET Pix, Trace TV, STC, ect are long overdue on Dialog TV. So hopefully these will also arrive soon on the Dialog TV platform.

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

why the hell does the customer have to go through the trouble of talking to some idiotic customer service agents to get the Heritage TV? Can't they just activate it on all the subscriptions? Another reason why Dialog is losing customers as fast as Ranil is losing fans...:(

HTV can be activated by doing a rescan. When I first checked the channel it said "No Signal", but after a rescan it was available. Give it a try and see. Easier than hanging on the phone on hold with the CS agents.

Cheers.

Ok... Posting here after a long time. I read few comments about card sharing and thought to add a comment on that.

Yes it is illegal and there is risk of losing your money. At the beginning of CBN we thought it was a legal service and ultimately was not as per the laws.....? We paid for a legal service. Dialog or any other service provider cannot sue the CS guys. There are two steps normally pay tv providers follow. One is blocking the sharing card and that's it. Secondly providers change the keys of the card more frequently. Then most of CS servers get stuck. Dish TV India doing this.

What I'm saying is if you have the opportunity, go for it and see it yourself. There is a wonderful world of pay tv channels out there.

@iptv
are u really sure about this?

bank_dude said...

@ anuruddha

don't go for Dish tv. Total hindi and Indian crap. Dialog is far better comparing to Dish when look at the channel lineup. Go for Peo. I think it's a better choice for you.

AMD said...

@ IPTV

Dialog tv has SET MAX and therefore they will be telecasting the IPL.
There is no issue here.

I just called DTV and they said they are showing.

Transporter said...

@ LANKA INFO yep thx for da info bro :)

DTV and PEOTV feeds r far better than the Indian DishTV.... DishTV has loootz of chanels.... bt most r useless for me coz i dnt knw Hindi, Tamil, teligu.... I knw only Sinhala nd English :D

bt DTV Nickelodeon smtyms spinning between Indian and Pakistan feeds ryt :)

anyway DTV dnt knw tips nd tricks to satisfy da customers.... dey always doin poor marketing tricks nd finally they loosing their customers :S

if DTV wants to keep the existing customers....,

1)they have to reintroducing the all past set plans from Set 1 to 22.

2)Introduce new set plans like "HBO, Star movies, Max, Hallmark", "Ten sport, Espn, star cricket, star sports".... etc....

3)adding new channels regularly... like animax, axn beyond, E!... etc

4) adding more channels to existing packages......
