Commercial Free - CiTi HiTz

As speculated earlier CiTi HiTz which launched on Dialog TV a few days back is a Commercial free channel. The channel was declared open by film directress Sumithra Peries.

The channel is said to telecast Sinhala Movies, teledrama's and interviews with cinema artistes. Contrary to previous reports that Dialog Satellite TV were operating this channel, we have now received information that the channel is being operated by a company called ONAir World (Pvt) Ltd., which is chaired by Nimal Laxapathiarchchi. We are unable to ascertain whether this is a subsidiary of Dialog Telekom or a totally independent company.

CiTi HiTz we hope will set off a trend of new channels in Sri Lanka which open via pay television networks instead of the traditional free to air mode.

CiTi HiTz will be offered on all Dialog TV packages until 31st March 2008. However those of you who have information about this company are welcome to comment.

I am sure CITI HITZ gonna be a massive hit, cause its headed by Media Chakrawarthi Nimal Laxapathiarachchi, as we all know he's the trend sitter in Sri Lankan media industry, so we can hope massive success of CITI HITZ.

As I heard CITI HITZ going to charge Rs:30 per month after promotional period.
