Sports channels want Olympic Signals from DD

Some sports channels such as ESPN & Zee Sports have approached Doordharshan India for sharing their feed for the 2008 Olympic Games in this subcontinent region. Many more sports channels such as Neo are also expected to request for a feed share.

This will enable a much better coverage of the event where at least one of the channels telecast the events making sure that no one misses out on the action. This will also benefit Sri Lankan viewers who have so far mainly relied on SLRC for Olympic coverage. Last time around the Athens games was telecast by Sirasa TV but it looks like this around it will be SLRC channels Rupavahini, Channel Eye/Nethra TV who will be covering the event.

Hopefully this feed sharing agreement between DD & the other sports channels will come through enabling this region to view the Olympic games without any interruption or bias towards certain events.

@ILHAM - The Boss

is this just a wish list of channels or the confirmed channel lineup??
If so it looks very tempting and can trigger a price war by DTV to retain its customer base and/or to prevent new customers going over to IPTV

Looser said...

It looks like a Wish List.

The Supreme Court on 2nd June warned Raynor Silva, the Managing Director of Asia Broadcasting Corporation Network Pvt. Limited and discharged him of the charge of contempt of the Supreme Court.

Raynor Silva was charged with contempt, for failing to submit to the Supreme Court, an accurate report of the news bulletin, broadcast by the ABC Network, late last year, referring to an LTTE attack on a village in Tissamaharama.

In this case, Silva in a rights violation application, had complained to the Supreme Court that the Media Minister had withdrawn the broadcasting licences issued to the ABC Network channels and that the decision of the Minister had been arbitrary.

The withdrawal of the broadcasting licences had occurred subsequent to an allegedly inaccurate news bulletin broadcast by the ABC, referring to the LTTE attack, on the villages of Ranminithanne.

Sanjeeva Jayewardene, Counsel for the petitioner Silva, told Court that Media Minister had restored five channels to the ABC Network, but the Telecommunication Regulatory Commission had issued only sixteen frequencies sufficient to feed three channels only. The TRC has to restore the other ten frequencies, to feed the other two channels.

The Court directed the TRC to consider the granting of the balance 10 frequencies. The proceedings were terminated.

Senior State Counsel N. G. Pulle, appeared for the Media Minister and the Telecommunications Regulatory Commission.

The Bench comprised the Chief Justice Sarath N. Silva, Justice Andrew Somawansa and Justice J. Balapatabandi.

looks like big broadcasters have decided to take action on un-authorised DTH connections. Some agency is selling Tata SKY,DishTV,Sundirect & Reliance in Sri Lanka without permission. The big foregin comapnies are starting office & appoint lawyers to file case. So be ready for one more shutdown.
