Hot on the heels of the decision by Dialog to launch a pay tv channel. Sri Lanka telecom announced that they will also be making plans to launch their own tv channel once they receive the license. Accordingly it looks like SLT will also be launching pay tv services and no further information is available on the technology that they will be using. SLT seems to be targeting Mobile tv too.
We welcome the move by these institutions to move into pay television and it is the viewers who will benefit from this move. However before licensing new operators the authorities should look into solving the problems of the existing operators.
