Year End Review & Happy New Year 2015

Well we have come to the end of yet another year and it's time to review the was at Dialog TV. This year has been a rather good year for Dialog TV, depends how you look at it but we decided to go with a rather positive outlook. Let's look at the significant happening of 2014.


  • Kidsco was replaced by Discovery Kids.
  • Neo Sports was replaced by Russia Today.
  • Some transponders were converted to MPEG4.
  • MTV Sports was added to the platform.
  • Citi Hitz made it's return.
  • MTV India returned with a non Indian feed.
  • Cine Thirai, Sony Six, Sundance Channel, Universal Channel & E was launched.
  • Soon afterward Sundance was removed and ADA Derana was launced.
  • Fox Crime Asia was replaced by Fox Crime India.
  • EWTN got its own channel, after time sharing with God TV for a couple of years.
  • Swarga TV was launched and is now time sharing with God TV.
This year has been quite positive but we still are yet to see a total conversion to MPEG4, let's keep our fingers crossed for 2015. With impending competition entering the local market, let's hope for a better 2015 for Dialog TV. Let's also hope that in 2015, no channels will get replaced but new channels will be added. There are also rumors of Dialog TV shifting to SupremeSat.

We also thank you our fellow bloggers for being with us throughout 2014 and thank you for your support and take this opportunity to wish the Management & Staff of Dialog TV and all our fellow bloggers a 
"A Happy & Prosperous 2015"

සැමට සුබ නව වසරක් වේවා! මෙතෙක් අපට ලබා දුන් 'Derana 24X7'ඉවත් කර ඇති බව පෙනේ. නව වසර උදාවත් ම ඩයලොග් පාරිභෝගිකයින් (Rs 6/- Per day TV)අසතුටට පත් කිරීම නොකළ යුතුව තිබිනි.

To the rugby fans in the forum. Sentanta asia just confirmed to me on FB that they will not telecast 6nations 2015 for Sri Lanka (despite the 6nations site saying they have the rights).

Anyone know if Sony Six will be telecasting this? Or any other info ..

Dialog just got a new website - surprisingly enough they used my text from the SLRC Wikipedia page to describe Channel Eye.
And yes, the channel is very confusing indeed.

Mario said...

Can someone please tell me what this "DIGI" Technologly that Sirasa & SLRC is using for live broadcasts ?

SLP said...

Really dont know.

But both guys are dealing with Live View technology. Might be that is this digi.

In live view, the point is connected to TV service h.q via GPRS/3G/4g.

There will n-phone lines between the points and data are distributed either simultaneously or fail safe mode.

at least 2 or more mobile networks are used for this.

the number the phone lines (n-lines) the cost of the service and quality of the service

don said...

Australia plus is not functioning .Does any one know whats wrong ?

Mario said...

Thanks SLP.

@Lamal Perera
Just do an auto or Manual tuning only for Digital channels

For Manual tuning just use C50 or Freq 706 MHz
