As we reported a couple of days back, Dialog TV launched "Revision TV" replacing "Citi Hitz" on monday October 1st. The channel is said to be available on a temporary basis and we believe that it will be taken off during the month of December. Thereafter either Citi Hitz will return of it will be replaced by another channel.
In addition the launch of prepaid Dialog TV is expected to take place during the course of next week, we are however unable to give an exact date.
Details of pricing, etc are not known only the fact that the equipment will belong to the subscriber, plus the equipment will be given one year warranty and any technical personnel visits will be charged. Whether or not existing post paid subscribers can convert to prepaid and whether prepaid ones will be able to convert to post paid is uncertain as yet and not likely during the initial stages, they may allow this later on based on demand.
There is no news of a probable launch of Sirasa on Dialog TV however according to a comment by a fellow blogger it has been told that a friend who bought a DTV connection was told that it will be available from next month. However it should be stated that DTV sales people will say anything to sell their connections so, only time will tell whether the sales guy was telling the truth or not. However we reiterate that the channel shouldn't be launched at the expense of any existing English channel and either they should wait for an increase in capacity or should replace it with an existing local channel or make use of that wasted channel slot called "Dialog Test".
Please keep us updated on the latest on Dialog TV as the days progress.
