England Vs Sri Lanka 2006 Test Series

Looks like Sri Lankan Cricket lovers have been let down by our local TV Stations. None of them are showing the 1st Test Match between Sri Lanka and England live. Is it not the duty of the National TV broadcaster Rupavahini or Channel Eye to carry the broadcast live. Even though Cable TV/DTH is now becoming widely available in Sri Lanka the penetration is still low so therefore why do the local channels not show sports of National Importance. Even the private TV channels seem to be not interested in this series. True enought that Channel Eye is to telecast the Fifa World Cup live, then the cricket broadcast should have been taken over by a private TV Channel. There has to an explanation for this non broadcast of the Cricket Match. It is over to the relevant authorities to explain the matter to the cricket loving public in Sri Lanka.

This of course is a good opportunity for the Cable TV/DTH operators in Sri Lanka to increase their subscriber base since ESPN is carrying the Broadcast Live.
