Stupid Move - swapping Ten Sports for Ten Cricket

In senseless move DTV have temporarily decided to swap Ten Sports with Ten Cricket during the "live" cricket matches commencing today.

Ten Sports shows a majority of live non cricketing content & wrestling, etc. The better option would have been to swap Ten Action (which has less live content) with Ten Cricket for the "live" cricket.

Taking the best option does not seem to be part of DTV culture, they seem to be relying their business strategies on stupid options.

Hopefully the HIGH & MIGHTY decision makers at DTV would take notice of what we have highlighted and do something proper. DTV seems to be making a habit of replacing channels instead of adding new ones.

Over to the HIGH & MIGHTY at DTV, hopefully before the end of the day, some sense would have got into them.

Please keep us updated on what the HIGH & MIGHTY'S at DTV are upto in the days to ahead.

Lisura,

Did you get a chance to contact Teledasun's (LBN) H.O. Mr.Bimal? If so what's the reply you got from him?

Chandika Gunawardhana said...

Great.
At least we get the chance to watch today's SA vs. PAK T20 match.

Mario said...

According to DTV, they cant swap Ten Action as it comes under a lesser package, and as per the contract they can only swap with an equal rental package.

Dude said...

@Mario - The decision is stupid as Admin put it & the excuse DTV is giving is even more stupid. It is all "bull". Do those DTV monkeys take us for idiots.

kevin said...

guys dont you think australia network is worthless??they should remove it an add ten cricket....

Dude said...

@kevin - Australia Network is worthless. Are you insane? They are the only channel on the lineup that telecasts rugby. What's worthless are the countless Hindi channels on DTV.

nilupa priyanka said...

what a about thtv and mtv ?.

kevin said...

@dude - ya thats true i guess...i dnt think they will remove TH Tv if u you knw wht i mean nilupa..

Thush D said...

ten sports and ten action both show European and Carling cup football, what the hell are we going to watch those on?? remove a useless hindi channel and put ten cricket. dnt take out either of the TEN channels, stupid move...

Nokia said...

There wont be any issue if DTV moves to MPEG4. But I think they have given up that idea.

We cannot expect any new channel without replacing another.

If they remove radio channels can they have more space for tv channels?

SLP said...

If they remove Radio Channels, There may be space. But i don't think so that it would be enough to transmit a TV channel in that allocation.

Although it wont happen as DTV need the government on its side...pooh

jagath said...

ridma said...

Discovery Turbo and Science channels will be charged 199 + tax from the 1st November.

Both the channels will be given @ 199/= for GOLD Package holders. Others 199/= EACH for Turbo and Science.

Even the Gold users will have to pay for these channels. :(

kevin said...

its unfair that dare chargin the gold users on these channels :( so dame unfair..

kavanr said...

While thanking Dialog of giving the Science Channel Free for 2 months I hope they will give it for a reasonable Rs49 like all of the other Discovery Channels.

IMHO the Science Channel should be given as part of the basic package.

After All Dialog is giving 4 religious Channels,
but no channel for those who believe in No religion.

Priyantha said...

Please Don't Add 2 Discovery Channel for additional Money. then Dialog have to release it for Free. I cant bilive why they are not adding those channel foe Gold Coustemers ... I hate Dialog Now ...still they cant add Ten Cricket..and still they are not re name Zee Sports ..

Priyantha De Silva said...

Another Stupid Move..

There are many like us who bought CBNSat even long time before Dialog obtained it. We paid nearly 100 000 rupees in past years for them as an entertainment equipment in the house as well as Gold DTV users.

Now, It's unethical and unfair to ask from us to pay nearly 200/= for those 2 channels or any upcoming channels.

How you even think about that ? Do you have a brain or kindness ?
Now, for the 1st time I'm thinking about get rid of DTV to buy another.

now, It's our time to shout for our rught. Pl Admin , Begin the thread ...

jagath said...

Please add Ten Cricket before 15th November. Bcoz, Sri Lanka Vs West Indies series live on Ten Cricket and Ten Sports will be broadcast Asian Games on 12th November, Then we want both of two channel to watch that events. Plz think a minute about your valued customers.....

Mario said...

Not to worry.

TEN SPORTS if showing the SL vs WI Test series starting on NOV 15th, TEN CRICKET is showing the PAK vs SA series.

This according to TEN SPORTS web site.
