Government reduces tax on foreign content

At a meeting held between H.E President Mahinda Rajapakse and the Heads of Private TV Stations, Actors, Producers, etc on Saturday it was decided to reduce the tax on imported English language content. We would like to thank our President for making this move considering the plight of the viewers of English Language programmes.

Sir, we would also like to request you to consider the plight of over 30,000 customers of cable tv and allow those cable tv companies to restart transmissions.

Accordingly all regular programming should commence on the tv stations from today.
