Srilakvahini test transmissions from today

Srilakvahini operated by Future Satcom will commence test transmissions from today (Nov 3rd). They will be broadcasting using the "Yamal" satellite and details about how to receive this channel are available on their website. This channel will be broadcasting Sinhala/Tamil/English programmes.

It seems that Srilakvahini have been issued the license for operating a satellite tv station.

We would like to wish the management of Future Satcom in all their future endeavours.

This is bullshit,If you visit their head office at D.R.Wijewardena mawatha you could see the reality of this.Their office resembles a shanty in colombo and the production manager Kithsiri seems to be drunk 24 hours.The uplinking equipment is fixed in the garbage dump and you could imagine what the content is going to be.

The licence wouldnt have been a problem as the shanty walls are surrended with photographs of HE with the directors.

Yes ! it is the old sathosa stores building. You could think of the quality. It's a junkyard tv station. Kithsiri is supposed to be a manager and he is a drunkard !

According to their website we can think of their mindset if they call this proffessionalism !

This stupid govt has given licences to this type of third grade people and also to kasippu mudalalis like Mahinda Ramanayaka. (Owner of Max Radio and MGMR Networks)

What is the culture they are trying to protect by issuing licences to these henchmen to run tv stations ???

Sri Lanka Telecom (SLT) is planning to invest in a television station and ‘differentiating’ its product offering based on Internet provider (IP) technology to beat the competition.

“We have applied for a non voice telecommunication service license to use cable and satellite technologies and we want to get into television,” Shuhei Anan, CEO, SLT told The Sunday Times FT last week.

He said the company, no sooner they get the license, will start working on the TV station and is the second company after Dialog GSM to announce such a move.

“At present we are awaiting approval. When we get the license we want to start a TV station,” Anan explained. SLT wants to launch a packaged product together with television content for mobile phones in order to better face competition next year.

He said that SLT will combine CDMA (Code-Division Multiple Access, a digital cellular technology), ADSL (asymmetric digital subscriber line, a new technology that allows more data to be sent over existing copper telephone lines), GSM (Global System for Mobile Communication) and Wi Max services based on IP technologies. “The television station and the content it will offer will be very helpful in this context,” he added.

He said the combined product will push the tariffs down. “When the four services are combined, it will help reduce the tariffs and we also want to expand our market share by riding on the tariff reduction,” he added.

"Mobile phone TV fulfills a human desire to be informed and connected to news, entertainment and information services especially as our lives become increasingly mobile," an industry analyst said, adding that mobile phone TV can deliver more multimedia and online services in addition to traditional TV-like broadcasts.

Hey! I'd like to know where I can find advertising and audience rates of Sri Lanka tv channels. Do you know if there is some company in Sri Lanka that makes studies abut it. Thank you!
