Channel replacements confirmed

Dialog TV have confirmed replacement of Zee TV, Zee Tamil & Zee Cinema with Sun TV, KTV & Sun Music. The new channels Sun TV, KTV & Sun Music will be available for all Gold package subscribers. UTV Movies & UTV World Movies will be made available for all packages that used to receive Zee TV & Zee Cinema.

Warner TV will take the place of Zee Cafe, Ten Sports has taken the place of Zee Sports & was made available to all packages, Ten Cricket replaced Ten Sports, Euro Sports replaced Zee Trendz & MGM replaced Zee Studio.

After we highlighted the rentals for Discovery Science, Discovery Turbo on this blog, it has been reduced to Rs 49/= per channel from the daylight robbery prices of Rs 199/= per channel, in addition to making it available FOC for the Gold package subscribers.

There has been a lot of discussion regarding MGM on this blog but we believe that the channel is a good decision so far.

Dialog should do more & readjust its packages by taking out CCTV News & more of the crappy hindi channels on their lineup. This seems to be a move in the right direction by taking out Hindi channels in favor of Tamil ones but it is too early to tell since more needs to be done.

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

Its good that Dialog TV is adding more channels. However, is it good replacing rather than adding channels..!!!?

I'm not a fan of Hindi programs.. nevertheless, there are many who watches Hindi programs... and they are very disappointed about the replacement of those channels...

What we should remember is that different people have different interests and just because some don't like it, it doesn't mean no one should view those programs.

I'm a big fan of "Zee Cafe" which shoes good programs even though the programs are old... specially the comedies..!!

My personal feeling is that the subscribers should be give a choice to select the channels as I'm sure not all will be watching Sun TV or any other Tamil viewers...

So My personal opinion is that Dialog should add channels and give the subscribers the choice of selecting what they want to watch... rather than replacing with channels which are viewed by separate segment.

@ Nokia.. thank you so much for blogging again.

Mario said...

Maybe DTV has more viewers for Tamil than Hindi programs ?

@ Nokia - ur welcome.

So we can expect the new channels from today midnight ?

I think I agree with Nokia..Dtv Should go with AXN Beyone or Set PIx Asia or Set Pix India. and also i suggest CCTV News,NDTV Good Times have to replace. and also Fox Crime. Fox crime and AXN telecast same programmes.
if Dialog can replace fox crime to FX it will be very good move. Because FX telecast very different progrrammes.And Dialog Must add Ten Action. its very important for sports viewers.

since i heard that DTv is doing to replace 'zee tv' i felt very much disappointed. i am a huge fan of that channel and i love to see all the telegrams which telecast in that channel. i bought dtv just becoz i need to see them and even i refused to buy another satellite tv which is also popular in sri lanka just becoz it is not allowing to see that channel.now u r going to replace it?? how unfair.. im really really disappointed and im not agree with the decition u have taken.

Its confirmed that Discovery Science, Discovery Turbo has been reduced to Rs 49/= per channel via a letter to all subscribers!

But in previous thread some one commented that he needs English movie channels and not Discovery channels. I hope most of the DTV viewers are not watching movies all over the day like time wasting fools without having any other businesses to engage.
It's good to have some good movie channels but Discovery channels gives majority of viewers not only the entertainment but education too..
