A few days ago Dialog TV replaced ETV with a test channel while having two more channels on test. One test channel has been allocated to the soon to be launched TV station by ABC Network, the other which was previously occupied by Aarti TV has been replaced by "Dialog Test Channel" & the slot occupied by ETV is to be taken by another local channel which hasn't been named as yet. It's quite surprising that while Dialog eternally tests while their local competitor PEO TV have already launched Ten Action which was a channel that many Dialog TV subscribers have been requesting now for several months.
Despite all of those requests Dialog are having three test channels, two of which have more or less been assigned for supposedly soon to be launched local channels and one that hasn't been assigned as yet. Rightfully Dialog should be launching a Hindu channel on the channel slot vacated by Aarti TV but it has not happened.
Instead of replacing ETV with another local channel Dialog should have at least put Ten Action. Dialog should increase capacity immediately since the recently launched sports channel "Sony Six" is on acquiring sporting properties and will be the only sole broadcaster of IPL from next year, Discovery has launched "Discovery Kids" and with numerous requests for "Ten Action" its clear that existing capacity is insufficient and even existing capacity is being mismanaged.
Please continue updating the latest from Dialog TV as the days progress.
