According to reports, Dialog TV will be launching their prepaid service from 1st Oct 2012. At present the launch date is tentative but it's likely to be on or around that date. We are unable to confirm how the service will be priced but it seems that the unit will cost around Rs 10,000 exclusive of installation.
It's likely that Dialog may charge seperately for installation. The reload rates are not available as yet but should be available as the launch date draws near.
This service is definitely capable of making the connections affordable & within the reach of many middle class Sri Lankans. Whether the prepaid pay television service would be as successful as prepaid mobile/broadband services is yet to be seen but there is no reason why it shouldn't be. We urge Dialog to take extra care when pricing this product, because the success or failure of this service will depend solely on the pricing.
Please keep us updated on the latest on Dialog TV as the days progress.
