CCTV 9 ??????

According to rumors reaching us Dialog TV seems to be planning to launch CCTV 9, the English Language channel of CCTV which is china's state run broadcaster. If Dialog keep this going then they will have more FTA channels on their lineup than pay channels. There are more priority channels such as AXN Beyond, SET Asia, ect which could be part of the lineup but that does not seem to be happening.

It looks like CCTV 9 will take the spot vacated by Nat Geo Wild or replace Siyatha TV.

In the midst of all this they keep increasing rentals and add FTA channels. The business logic is totally haywire. Even the MPEG4 conversion which was due to take place in 2008 does not seem to take place.

We hope the management of Dialog TV take steps to immediately sort these things out otherwise the future does not look too bright.

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