Revision TV & prepaid Dialog TV

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.

Dialog TV prepaid මේ මාසේ ක්‍රියාත්මක කරනවා කිවිවට තාම හරියට දිනයක් නෑ.
Dialog TV , prepaid කරන විට දැන් පැ‍කේජ සදහා ලබා දෙන එක් චැනලයකට අය කරන ගාස්තුවට වැඩි ගාස්තුවක් එක් එක් වැනලය සක්‍රීය කිරීමේදී අය කිරීමට බොහෝවිට ඉඩ ඇත.
Dialog TV prepaid කිරීමෙන් Dialog ආයතනය තවත් ලාභය වැඩි කර ගැනීමේ ක්‍රියාවලියක් (දැන් කරන ආකාරයට පාරිභෝගිකයා සුරාගෙන කෑම) සිදු කරන්නේ නැතිව සාධාරණ ගාස්තුවකට හා සාධාරණ අයකිරීම් සැලැස්මක් Dialog TV prepaid සමගින් ඉදිරිපත් කරන්නේ නම් වඩා අගනේය.
නැතහොත් වෙනත් සේවා සපයන්නෙක් වෙත අපට යාමට සිදුවනු ඇත.

All,

I could not get more info on DTV Pre paid and Sirasa.

If any one is having more info Please share.

Only thing what I got to know is that DTV pre paid is ready and they are doing some fine tuning. MIGHT get resaults before the end of next week or two.

Nokia said...

Agreed with lakmal08

There is no competition to Dialog TV as there is no any DTH TV provider except for dialog. Peo Tv also limited to arias and if there are any other DTH service provider I feel that our bills too go down with the competition. :)

According to that news report, anyways DISH will take some time to "officially" launch here, although i dont think it will make any difference anyways.

LBN & PEO both have their restrictions and seem to be happy being that way.

DTV has a main advantage over other Indian DTH for us is that they also give our local channels, which is very important for people living in outstations.

Oken Silva said...

obviously if dish tv invests in SL it means tht they will also get rights for SL channels....only leading to more competition(lower prices...better services)

dish tv වල ලංකාවේ චැනල් පෙන්නේ නෑ. ඒ නිසා dish tv ඩයලොග් ටී වී වලට ලොකු අභියෝගයක් වෙන එකක් නෑ. මොකද දැනටමත් dish tv ඇතුඵ වෙනත් චන්ද්‍රිකා රෑපවාහිනී සේවා ලංකාව තුලදී ලබා ගන්න පුලුවන්. ටීවී ලංකා එකේ ඩිජිටල් ටීවී එක ලංකාවම ආවරණය කරන්න තව මාස 06 වත් යනවා කියලා ඒ ගොල්ලෝ කියනවා.
කෙසේ වෙතත් ඩයලොග් ටීවී වල‍ට තරගකාරී වන තවත් චන්ද්‍රිකා ‍‍හෝ වෙනත් ඩිජිටල් රූපවාහිනි සේවා සපයන්නෙක් ලංකාව තුල සිටිනවා නම් හොදයි. මොකද ඩයලොග් ටීවී, අඩු සේවා පහසුකම් සලසමින් ඉතා අධික හා අසාධාරණ ලෙස ගාස්තු අයකරමින් සිටිනවා.
ඩයලොග් ටීවී වල පෙර ගෙවුම් පැකේජ ක්‍රමය තාමත් නෑ. එයින්වත් සාධාරණ ගාස්තු ක්‍රමයක් අප සැම බලාපොරොත්තු වුවත්, ඩයලොග් එයින් පාරිභෝගිකයන්ට සාධාරණක් සිදු කරයි කියා සිතන්න අමාරුයි.
මේ තත්ත්වය යටතේ තරගකාරී චන්ද්‍රිකා රෑපවාහිනී සේවා සපයන්නෙක් ‍ගැන බලාපොරොත්තු දල්වාගෙන සිටින්න‍ට අපට සිදුවී තිබේ.

Dish tv lanka means DISH India + more local and HD content. Probably all local channels can be uplinked. So good for this sirasa fans.

I dont mind. It's a fair move.

bbc entertainment india notice


BBC Worldwide today (Thursday 1st November) confirms the closure of two of its branded channels in India. BBC Entertainment and CBeebies are to be withdrawn and will no longer be available beyond the end of November 2012. BBC World News, the BBC’s international news and current affairs channel, will remain available to our Indian viewers.

The decision to withdraw these BBC channels has not been an easy one to take. India is a dynamic and fast growing media market but remains uniquely challenging for pay-TV channels. Specifically, delays in digitisation and the need for channel operators to pay cable platforms for carriage makes the economics of running channels very challenging at this time.

Quality BBC content will continue to be seen in India – many of our programmes are available on other channels, both terrestrial and cable, as well as digitally and on our YouTube channel at http://www.youtube.com/user/BBCWorldwide.

We would like to thank our dedicated and loyal staff in India, Singapore and the UK, who have worked on BBC Entertainment and CBeebies, and our many viewers for their support and loyalty. We believe India is an exciting market and in the event of changes in the options available to us we would certainly consider re-launching our non-News channels in the market.

The BBC Entertainment website (http://india.bbcentertainment.com/) and Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/BBCEntertainmentIndia) will be regularly updated until the channels are withdrawn so please do have a look.

Good Day All,

The blog is having no activity and wanted to get an Update from Dialog.

I went to one of the Dialog outlet (Out Colombo) and met the Manager of the outlet and asked on the DTV pre paid Service.

As per the manager there they are ready to launch the service. They even have received the equipment’s to their outlet and I requested him to show the equipment’s if possible but he was not keen in showing me the equipment’s but gave me a good feedback and he is well aware of the product. Only thing that he told me is that they are waiting till the management officially launch the service to start selling the product.

He didn’t confirm the prizing or the rentals…

@ nokia,

i want to Ten action channel, so finally i decided to go HD pack, One channel only rs. 990... what a shame...

dear Nokia, what are new updates ?

Dul sam said...

ESPN hd still having that video problem.now for 3 months.I wonder what the hell dialog do to fix that problem.video get stuck every minute last night.I wait for a month if dialog didn't fix that error in ESPN hd will cancel the hd pack.

we are spending rs.1000 for just 3 useful hd channels.having discover& ngc in 5 channels hd pack is a joke.dialog gives us the cheapest channels for getting huge profit not to statiffie customers.

nilu said...

@Dul Sam

I totally agreed with you. we are spending Rs.1000 or more for just 4 HD channels without a quality content of some the channels. Star Movie HD is a waste of space.
