Channel capacity mismanaged

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allocated to the soon to be launched TV station by ABC Network, the other which was previously occupied by Aarti TV has been replaced by "Dialog Test Channel" & the slot occupied by ETV is to be taken by another local channel which hasn't been named as yet.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.

My EPG is wrong despite number of attempts by DTV to fix it. Any advice?

දැන් ඩයලොග් ටීවී වල Test Transmission වැඩියි. ඒවායින් දෙකක්ම ‍පෙන්නේ නෑ.. Space එක නාස්ති වෙනවා. වැඩකරන චැනල් දෙකක්‍ මේ නිසා වැඩ නෑ.. සිරස හා FTV (Fashion TV) ලබා දෙනවා නම් ඉතා වැදගත්වේ. වෙනසක් ඉතාම ඉක්මනින් ලබා දිය යුතුයි. සිංහල අලුත් අවුරුද්ද සදහා විශේෂයෙන් යම් චැනල කීපයක්‍ හෝ ලබා දෙනවා නම් අනගි වේ.

DTV is one of the most mis managed companies in Sri Lanka. It should be ashamed to be a part of the DIALOG group.

There are 3 channels on test now. A so called DTV test channel with nothing on it, took off ETV because they couldnt afford to maintain it.

Other providers are ADDING channels not REPLACING them. Just taking all of us for a nice ride. Real bunch of jokers !!

I am a dialog TV user for along time..I bought this connection only to watch live football matches..Early days there was a channel call Zee Spotrs.Ultimately that channel changed as Ten Action + and dialog crue has removed that channel from the channel list.As a football fan i am very dissapointed for that and i am kindly requesting to add Ten Action + Channel immediately.
