MGM Channel Asia ousts TruTV & replaces Zee Studio

After initially testing out TruTV in place of Zee Studio and causing an uproar among lower package subscribers because they lost out on a movie channel, Dialog TV took a surprising move by adding MGM Channel Asia in place of TruTV. We believe that MGM is a commercial free channel unlike Zee Studio. The quality of the channel we believe will be higher than Zee Studio and we believe that it is the Singapore feed that is available on Dialog TV although we cannot be certain as yet .

When Your company introduce the esp package 999, it only included two English movie channels which was zee studio and UTV world movies.But after removing the zee studio and adding another entertainment channel rather than movie channel is very unfair to the customer , and also it is disrupting the agreement that you promise when we purched the package.
There may be some internal reasons for this change but it is your duty to replace another movie channel rather than other entity like stay movie or one of the HBO.
Please kind enough to look in to this unfair procedure and do the needful.
thank you.

@jithendra -
1. while tru tv wasnt a movie channel MGM is a movie channel, so lets keep our fingers crossed about its content.
2. This is a public user forum and it is not a good idea to be posting your personal account numbers & phone numbers. You should directly contact Dtv Customer care for personalised assistance.

MGM is telecasting very old movies. But I think it's better than Zee Studio as there are no adds on it :)

Will wait and see for the next changers in dates to come.

Heard that they will be adding some good tamil channels. It can be Sun channels....

star said...

If they add few tamil channels, then that is great. But, will they have space to add?

LBN has now removed 5 tamil channels from their line up. ISAI ARUVI, Chittiram , RAJ TV, JAYA TV & JAYA MAX channels are now not available on LBN now. Reason what they are telling is technical faults. Few of these channels are not available for weeks.

MGM channel is good. But it's too showing old movie. If can Add B4U movie.

jagath said...

Dialog TV relaunch Ten Action? We need Ten Action.....

nilupa priyanka said...

MGM only shows old crappy movies. why hell happened to Zee Studio ?. why DTV remove good channel and place a crappy channel like MGM.they replace truTV bcoz of DTV users complains. why can they replace channel can same like zee studio with the adds.

Sallay said...

Very disappointed with the MGM Channel. The schedules of Channel is based on the selected Singaporean taste!

And is not about the channel broadcasting unpopular old movies but MGM production movies! Why not Columbia pictures and paramount pictures where Zee Studio used to give?

None of those movies are heard of since I'm a movie lover! I know the the popular old movies such as SoundOfMusic and MyFairLady! But MGM is Crap!

where are the late 20s movies? how about replacing similar to Zee Studio than keeping disappointed customer at stake!

It's not only the process does matter but the output too!

Supun said...

Z studio better than MGM channel.

it seem that DTV will replace all good channels with very cheaply crappy channels.

what a shame.

Neel said...

Please remove MGM channel.. please ad WB movie chanel....

c star said...

MGM is a boring channel. they telecast films which produced even before the dialog management persons born.
dialog should have a different approach than these crazy things

Priyantha said...

I think Fox movies Asia is best replace for zee Studio. MGM channel good for classic movie viewers. and also please add ten action. ESPN going to start ESPN News channel this January. we want it also...

Lankan Blogger said...

Every man for himself!

Evidently each commenter here knows exactly what "we" want. We want ESPNews, we need Ten Action, etc.

None of the viewers here seem to be able to appreciate old movies. Unfortunately those who do appreciate the programming on MGM are not familiar with blogs and the internet, so they cannot express their views.

But since everyone here seems to know what's best for DTV customers, I dearly hope that DTV doesn't actually listen to you people.

Perhaps if DTV does their own surveys this problem won't happen. They can get an unbiased view of what the customers want.

nilupa priyanka said...

@Lankan blogger

your also thinking about yourself. look majority of this comments and what they say. this is blog that allow express your point ta view. you can express yourself but don't neglect others. why MGM see this blog?. dialog tv the broadcaster of this channel and they should be consider this comments.

Rukmal said...

Nokia is right

UTV Movies & UTV World Movies are free for all packages..

Thanks

nisha said...

thats y I'm always says that Dtv is not working in Sri lankan manner.

I say they Thinks about the foreigners who visit to sri lanka.

Nokia said...

@ Rukmal

As always I'm right. :)


And if Dialog add Tamil channels they can market their services in north and east. recently they have opened outlets in Batti, Vavunia and trinco. And they may be trying to add tamil channels due to the high demand from that aria.

And as I have told earlier we need Zee TV as this is a channel which shows reality programs. And my wife is only watching this channel.

MGM is always a old movie channel. CAnnot watch the poor quality movies on MGM. only advantage is there are no adds during a movie. DTV should replace Zee Studio with a good quality channel.

jagath said...

@ nokia

Please tell me what about Ten Action. Dialog TV will launch or no..? nokia please help me...

Nokia said...

@ Jagath

That of cause I have no idea.

But the current trend in DTV is seems like they are going to remove all Zee Channels.... They have already stopped adding single channel facility for all Zee channels..

jagath said...

@ Nokia..

Thanks for your response... nokia

nilupa priyanka said...

@nokia

it is really true about the Zee channels.ZeeCafe is really good channel.what a shame.

Megatron said...

i thing DTV is planning to remove all the Indian feed & started adding Commercial Free Asian feeds. this is really good. hope soon they will remove all the Hindi channels & add more Tamil Channels.

nilupa priyanka said...

@nokia

i heard that all DTV channels are free for all users till 1st of jan 2011. is it true ?.

TheXB said...

I am receiving all the channels for my connection. I am on the Big Deal package and I checked with DTV just to make sure. So am guessing this is true.

This is great if DTV is doing this for the customers this season. Lets hope they don't retract the offer! *fingers crossed*

Wishing everyone the very best this season!

Nokia said...

Yes All Channels are free till 7th January 2011. !!!!

Nokia said...

Thanks to DTV for the wonderful offer!!!

Keep Up the Good Work!!!

kumara said...

This what always DTV do . Rplacing good channelw with useless channels.

Zee studio is one of my favourite channles. I laways looked forward to view thier movies at 9.00pm as they, most of the time had a good movie with sub titles.

Sadly now it is gone. I am really disappointed.

@nisha

You are very true! But Blaming Nokia is wrong. He is only providing accurate information from Dialog. We must respect him!
DTV dancing until Maharaja Group starts their new DTH.

Nokia said...

@ nisha....

Thanks for the comments


Dear Other Bloggers,
I'm not going comment anything here after on this blog. As people like Nisha don't realize the real problems that we have with DTV, just criticize the real souses of information.

We should appreciate for the good work that DTV does and have to criticize when they do bad to us.

I'm a user who paid 14900/= and purchased this Connection and I'm too suffering on DTV's rental hike ext ext. The other bloggers who were here that time can see my comments.

And we all must try our best to bring DTV to the right track as we are paying and obtaining their services.

Although I'm not going to comment in this blog I'll be viewing your comments.....

But I know for sure that you all will miss the information that I brought to you during pass years!!! like no other would do.!!


God Bye DTV Blog!! and Compliments of the Season!!!
