Max TV running test transmissions using Ten Sports

The soon to be launched Max Tv which is operated by MGM Networks is presently carrying out test transmissions by telecasting Ten Sports for the past few days now. This makes us wonder whether Max Tv will be telecasting Ten Sports even after their launch. Popular programmes such as wrestling, etc is available on Ten Sports and they have the rights for almost all the cricket played in the sub continent. However even if Max carries Ten Sports we are not sure that they will be allowed to show the live cricket content.

However the reception on Max Tv has to be improved by shifting the location of their transmitter since the general public is not going to turn the antenna towards the direction that Max is located in order for them to view a clear picture of Max while compromising the clarity of the other channels.

We would like those of you who called MGM on (011) 5551001 to post information on whether they will continue to show Ten Sports on Max even after the launch has taken place. We would also like you to confirm when the launch will take place?

We also request the management of MGM to take steps to immediately rectify the reception problem by preferably shifting the transmitter to colombo and putting it in the general direction of the other channels.

What Max TV shows is the recorded content of Tensports. They are not showing the live feeds. I think they also have got ht erights to show the recorded content as Derana and ArtTV doing.

Definitely they have to change their location. Otherwise i'm not going to change the antenna position to even get the weaker picture of max (low) and reduce the quality of the other channels.

I can remember even Sirasa and TNL have started their transmissions away from colombo (pannipitiya and piliyandala) and they also had the same problem. Eventually they have shifted the transmitters to colombo and only kept the studios out of colombo.

This is the only way to reach a wide audience. Or else they will cater only to the people in Weliweriya and suburbs.

Dear Blog admin,

Why don't you write to them and get a response. You are the sole representative of the TV viewing public of this country !!!

Keep up the good work !!!

ACTUALLY PART OF THE SHARES OF MGM IS OWNED BY SANGEETHAS RICH HUSBAND. SANGEETHA IS THE KEY FOR THIS MAN TO ENTER IN TO THIS BUSINESS.

I believe MGM belongs to Mahinda Ramanayake .. owner of SOGO water Amrith Restaurant and ShaCola not to mention some heavy interest in Spirits. What does Sangeetha have to do with this? Last I heard Chamuditha from TNL has joined as General Manager so this place already has a motley crew from all over!! and they haven't even prepared a Dummy Yet!! This ought to be fun to watch !

Yes ! Chamuditha is also in the pack. Nadee from Sirasa Tv is also there. There is a lot from Sirasa radio running max Radio and the technical staff too.

Sangeethas husband is one of the major share holders. Yesterday night they showed the US Open live feeds from Tensports.

I CAN CONFIRM IT'S LIVE !!!!!

I do not think Ten sports have permitted them to show it live FTA like this. This will be a huge blow to their pay tv operation in sri lanka.

And the tv reception is very bad in colombo city. radio is ok.

They are advertisng SOGO & ShaCola when the run test transmissions.

I heard MAX Radio is sheduled to start from 10th What about the TV channel? What are they going to tranmist? Is it Ten sports?

Its great if they show Ten sports cos we don't have CBN to watchh some sports.

I SUSPECT TRANSMITTING OF LIVE PROGRAMS OF TENSPORTS IS ILLEGAL. WHAT THEY WERE ALLOWED IS TO RECORD AND RE-TRANSMIT LIKE ART TV DOES.

THIS STATION IS RUN BY A VERY FAMOUS "KASIPPU MUDALALI" AND HE GOT HOLD OF THE PRESIDENT AND THE GOVERNEMT THROUGH SANGEETHA. THAT'S HOW THEY'VE BEEN ABLE TO RUN THIS CHANNEL.

SIYATHA TV WILL ALSO START SOON UNDER THE UMBRELLA OF BALUWARDANA. HE IS ALREADY HIRED HIS BUILDINGS AND EQUIPMENT FOR SIYATHA TV.

WHAT A WAY TO DO BUSINESS IN SRI LANKA. THIS IS THE WAY !!!!!!!

YOU CAN'T BE FAIR AND CLEAN !!!

Sumedha said...

I am living in Negombo and the signals are very low. All I can see is whole heap of dots with unclear picture and a very poor sound signal which comes on and off. From the possition that my antenna is directed, I can see all the other channels crystal clear.

Does anyone know where they are transmitting from ?
