Just about a week ago we made a post about a new service that is to be launched by Dialog TV and there were speculations whether it could be a DVB-T service or a Satellite Internet Service.
Information coming in suggests that it is a "pre-paid" Dialog TV service. Service's such as this are available on DTH operators in India, etc but this will be a first for Sri Lanka & could potentially put pay television within the reach of ordinary middle class Sri Lankans. The indication of this potential service is when one dials the Dialog TV USSD Portal via Dialog mobiles on #679# an option called "Pre-paid Initial Activation" is now available which wasn't available before.
If this information is correct then it could mean that Dialog could vastly increase their subscriber base and whether a Pre-paid pay television service can be as successful as Pre-paid mobile phone service only time will tell.
'Please keep us updated on the latest on Dialog TV as the days progress.
