In just about a month after Dialog carried out the time sharing of God TV & EWTN on a single channel slot, they are at it again by time sharing Learn TV & Heritage TV on a single channel. This means that Learn TV will not be available 24X7 and Heritage TV will not be available 24X7.
Dialog which is lacking in transponder capacity seems to be desperate to increase channels they have decided to do it by hook or crook. Learn TV an educational channel has been touched and shared with Heritage TV. Dialog a pay television company is now behaving like a fully fledged FTA channel.
Learn TV is a childrens educational channel and looks like education has taken a back seat to Dialog's desperate tactics.
The sad thing is that this could be the future today and maybe we can look towards more channels being time shared in the near future. So in december God & EWTN were time shared now in january Learn TV & Heritage TV were time shared, we only can wonder what february will have in store.
It looks like things are going down hill now considering the events of the last two months.
1) Star Movies Asia changes to Star Movies India and no effort is being done by Dialog to get the asian feed back again.
2) God TV time shared with EWTN instead of giving EWTN a new channel slot.
3) MGM and UTV World Movies replaced by the Zee Studio & Zee Cafe. A bad move considering the fact that existing channels were removed to add these two.
4) Heritage TV and Learn TV combined and time shared to a new channel slot.
The problem here is lack of capacity and the lack of interest shown by Dialog to increase capacity. Dialog is definitely mirroring the problems that Comet Cable had and are hoodwinking their subscribers.
