With Dialog TV continuing with the replacement of "Gold" pack subscriber decoders to the HD enabled decoder, Dialog should now enable those on the "Gold" pack to activate the channels available on the HD pack individually or at least the channels available as "Bonus" channels individually or allow them to add them on as a sub pack.
Those who are on the "Gold" pack and have no HD television have also got the new HD enabled decoder. Until they upgrade the television to a HD enabled one, they are obviously not going to activate the HD pack. However Dialog will be able to increase it's revenue by reasonably pricing the channels as add-ons.
We hope Dialog immediately adds a channel to the wasted channel slot on "Dialog Test Channel" and adds channels to the other two test channels on the newest transponder which carries the HD channels or removes the test slots and allocate that bandwidth to the HD channels.
We hope Dialog completes the decoder replacement and starts converting to MPEG4 DVB2 within the course of this month. The last time a conversion was to occur the replacements took place over a period of months & ultimately it died a natural death. We hope the same is not repeated once again.
Please keep us updated on the latest on Dialog TV as the days progress.
