New test channel on channel "71"

For the past several days Dialog TV seems to have taken "Aarti TV" off air and have left the channel slot blank renaming it "Dialog Test channel".

We hope Dialog TV do not waste too much time and waste this channel space by leaving it blank. Since a Hindu channel was taken off, Dialog TV should take steps to add a new Hindu channel in it's place. If that is not possible Dialog TV should go ahead and add "Ten Action" in that slot, since it is one of the most wanted channels with numerous requests for it. If not Dialog TV should at least introduce a new channel preferably an English language channel.

However if Dialog TV is unable to secure any channels then Dialog should stop the time sharing between God TV and EWTN on Channel 70 and move EWTN to Channel 71 which will enable Catholic's to watch their favourite EWTN programming 24hrs a day uninterrupted & reinstate God TV back to a 24hr broadcast on Channel 70 so that non Catholic Christians can watch their favourite God TV programming 24hrs a day uninterrupted once again. We have learnt reliably that if Dialog TV commences charging an additional rental (similar to a channel fee as in the case of Setanta) from those who want to watch God TV 24hrs a day, there are many who are willing to do so and pay an additional amount. Dialog TV can make use of this opportunity to improve their income from a channel that costs them nothing, except the expenses incurred for allocating an addition transponder slot for the channel. Maybe its something that Dialog TV management should contemplate doing.

However we urge Dialog TV not to waste that slot in their transponder by doing nothing with it.

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

I dont undastand what Dialog is doing.... they dont have channles to show programms and using time sharing and at the same time two channles are on testing......

Vishkid said...

Time sharing AND having two test channels is insane and will only confuse everyone .. why cannot DTV realize this.

All the same, using transponder space to increase religious channels is a joke, when there are so many other options that viewers are asking for.

I do wish that admin does not go on propagating his viewpoints and pursuing his own agenda but let the fellow bloggers channel the suggestions as they wish!

දැන් ඩයලොග් ටීවී වල Test Transmission වැඩියි. ඒවායින් දෙකක්ම ‍පෙන්නේ නෑ.. Space එක නාස්ති වෙනවා. වැඩකරන චැනල් දෙකක්‍ මේ නිසා වැඩ නෑ.. මෙහි වෙනසක් අපි ඉතාම ඉක්මනින් බලාපොරොත්තු වෙනවා..
