Discovery Science & Discovery Turbo on test

Dialog are testing the Discovery Science & Discovery Turbo channels on channel number 1. These two are very good channels and they do not originate out of India, therefore they are commercial free. We request our bloggers to give the feedback requested by Dialog. Dialog can use the channel number 1 position and number 7 position presently occupied by CCTV9 which is available via local FTA transmission. Please keep us updated on the latest on Dialog TV as the days progress.

@ nipul

I watched the sl vs nz match on dialog tv. ( star cricket )

These channels are good. But we need more entertainment channels like Sony Entertainment Asia, or AXN beyond

Raja said...

What about sports channells in DTV? Only ZeeSports is in 500 & 700packages.Realy worry abt the situation.
All good sports channels are for the 1949 package.Activating individual channels also uneconomical... One channel costs 99/=. I think DTV Channels must be organize better than this ,rather than introdusing new channels?

nilupa priyanka said...

I totally agree with Lakmina because there are no channels to watch if u get 500 package. you just have 2 add individual channel according 2 ur preferences. atleast should have discovery or animal planet on 500 package.

guys,

I too received the letter on increasing the rental. my Big Deal is costing 1099 now....

DTV has cited the deflation of Rupee, increased cost on power and some other $#!\ as the reasons.

They would at least have given us the freedom to select an additional channel to be activated for half the rate in lieu, but seems they don't get any creative marketing ideas than the simple advice on rental increases.

Is the Science and Turbo feed, Asian Feed ? ie: Singapore/HK ?

SIERA said...

Bloody DIALOG has decided to Increase their Package Rental.
250 in to 500
500 in to 700 etc...
Why????
So we hapo to remove Dialog TV and they dont think any about Their Customers...
And They said, within next 6 months, they will have to increase package rental again.
So think twice.....
Whether you will still waiting or doing something against DIALOG????

Nokia said...

Hi firends,
This time dialog has increased the rentals for their own staff too....

One of my friends confirmed this.

What elese can we expect from dialog???

Mario said...

I dont agree with the price increase as well, but we have to be realistic, with almost everything imaginable item going up in price, we cant expect DTV to hold their prices forever.

Sri Lanka Dialog Telekom returns to profitability
May 10, 2010 (LBO) – Sri Lanka's Dialog Telekom group made a profit of 705 million rupees in the March 2010 quarter from its core celco operations, after a loss of 1.86 billion a year ago, but subsidiaries continued to lose money, its accounts showed.
In the March quarter the group's core cellular business made a profit of 820.3 million rupees compared with a 929 million loss in the corresponding quarter last year.
Dialog Telekom group had earnings of eight cents per share in the March 2010 quarter compared with a loss of 29 cents per share a year ago.

The group has been making losses in recent quarters owing to higher costs and steep tariff cuts brought on by stiff competition.

Group unit Dialog Television (DTV) made 83.6 million rupee loss in the March quarter, down 69 percent from 2009, while its broadband subsidiary also made a loss.

The group's global business profits were up almost 11 percent to 64.8 million rupees.

Dialog Telekom, Sri Lanka's largest celco, is a unit of Malaysia's Axiata group.

Dialog's March quarter group revenues rose 10.1 percent to 9.8 billion rupees, while at standalone company level revenues rose 15.3 percent to 8.47 billion rupees, its accounts showed.


The group's current assets dipped 10.2 percent to 13.6 billion rupees, from a 38 percent fall in cash reserves, its accounts showed.
Gross assets had dipped 3.0 percent to 72.7 billion rupees.

DTv connection fee will be Rs.9990/- until further notice and the 1st month rental waiver is no more.

Jughead said...

Hi guys,

i haven't made any comments on the blog for maybe over 2 years now but now there seem to be a bit of a prob with my DTV connection just want to clarify whether its a fault on my STB or a common issue.

For about two weeks now there have been lots of freezing and also a couple of messages appear very often "Insert Smart Card" "Reading Smart Card" and "Channel Scrambled" etc.

It is really annoying specially when it happens in the middle of your favourite prog.

Is it only for me or others also have come across this situ?

I was wondering whether its beause i have the old STB(from CBN Sat Days)

would appreciate a quick feedback.

Thanks

nilupa priyanka said...

you can change it to new DTH decoder from dialog. just ask them.

Jughead said...

Nilupa thanks for the reply.

what i wanted to find out was whether you guys also have the same problems, i e freezing and the smart card issues. if thats so then i need not change the STB cause the new one looks cheap as against CBN sat equipment :(

WARUNA SAT said...

Nilupa & Waruna

Thanks for the help. appreciate it very much.

I called up DTV and was helped by one of the guys there (i forget his name though). He asked me to remove the smart card, (similar to a credit card) to clean it and reinsert.

wallah; it worked.

On a previous occation also i called the help line to get a single channel activation done which was not possible via my mobile phone and the rep activated it for a month over the phone.

i must say DTV customer care people have really got their act together after all this time.either they have moulded the CC people or recruited people with brains. whatever it is it is a good & welcome move.

I would like to congratulate them for the great work!! do continue with the good work guys.

Roland said...

hey guys need help. my DTV box has got stuck! it only shows yellow light, what does that mean, doesnt come on even. please help.

WARUNA SAT said...

Thanks Admin for keeping this forum live. Thanks Dialog for keeping the system running fine. And Thanks muhunthan for the introduction of DTH to Sri Lanka.
