Sri Lanka's first local Sinhala language pay television channel Citi Hitz has gone off air. This was bound to happen one day or the other since the channel was barely existing & repeats content most of the time. The channel has been according to Dialog replaced "temporarily" by a new educational channel called "Revision TV". Since this is temporary either Citi Hitz could return or in turn "Revision TV" would be replaced by the channel that would take the place of Citi Hitz permanently.
In other news AXN HD has been replaced by Ten HD and it seems that this too is temporary & AXN HD will return soon possibly by October 4th. We believe the replacement is to telecast the present the Ryder Cup Golf tournament thats taking place. Maybe someone at Dialog is an ardent Golfing fan. It's sad that they charge a whopping extra Rs 1000/= on a monthly basis and replace channels almost every month, this is probably the most unstable HD pack in the world.
Going back to our first report, it just maybe that the "new local channel" that was to replace Australia Network will replace "Revision TV" at a later day. One has to wonder when that eternally testing "Dialog Test" channel will get replaced by a channel since it's a waste of transponder space.
We are unable to confirm the launch date of Dialog TV pre-paid but it looks like the tentative date of October 1st still holds.
Please keep us updated on the latest on Dialog TV as the days progress.
