According to reports it seems that Disney Junior is now testing on channel number 55. We are not sure whether this is the Indian feed or Asian feed as yet. Also Siyatha TV & Varnam TV were added to all packages even old ones that are not promoted by Dialog TV anymore. This is good since they have been taking some heat over the last few days for with holding the channels from those packages.
It seems that gradually the advertised CNBC, etc will be coming on board. The movie channel with content similar to Star Movies is missing yet. Hopefully it's Fox Movies Premium but nothing is certain.
Also Dialog should not waste this valuable transponder space on any more local FTA channels since they will take the road that will end up in total loss. There are some requests but the business from local FTA ones will be less. If Dialog have no capacity then they can add those channels but Dialog has capacity issues like any other DTH provider.
There is no point in starting local channels specifically for the platform unless some sort of quality can be maintained, as we have seen in the recent past that's hard to do. Most of those who request for loads of local channels either do not have a Dialog TV connection or subscribe to per day TV which represents only a small portion of the DTV subscribers.
Please update us on the latest on Dialog TV as the days progress.
