Beijing 2008 Olympics on Rupavahini/Channel Eye

The Beijing 2008 Olympics Games is scheduled to commence today with a gala opening ceremony at 5pm Sri Lanka time.

The events will be telecast over Rupavahini/Channel Eye over the next few days until 24 August 2008.

We hope that SLRC makes its best efforts to show the games with minimum interruptions. With the Sri Lanka - India Test Series underway and with the One Day Games coming up we expect most of the Olympic content over Rupavahini.

SLT IPTV delayed due to technical issues


The launch of Sri Lanka Telecom’s much-talked of Internet Protocol Television (IPTV), due this month, has been delayed due to certain operational problems and would be ready by the end of the year, official sources said. SLT CEO Pat Abeysekera told The Sunday Times FT that the date of official launching of the new service had not been finalised although it was announced at the IPTV exhibition at the BMICH recently that the service would commence in August. The delay was due to some infrastructure issues and the service would be ready by the end of 2008, she said without giving details.

The product was to be launched by SLT Visioncom, a fully owned subsidiary of SLT. The company had operated the IPTV service as a pilot project among 100 customers and found that some channels are not working properly. SLT engineers are now in the process of rectifying the defect. These engineers also said that broadband Internet is the critical factor in implementing this initiative and that SLT needs to upgrade its ADSL system to ADSL 2+, which the compamy doesn’t have at the moment.

SLT officials said the company plans to use the Rolling Stream platform for the IPTV service. SLT Visioncom is to invest Rs.100 million on this product. SLT's IPTV deployment is designed to support around 100,000 subscribers in the first two years.

WHY DO WE SPEND LAKS OF MONEY OVER LCD WHEN ALL WE NEED FROM A TV IS A CLEAR PICTURE !!!.

This a complete fraud ! IS THERE ANY LEGAL INSTITUTION IN SRI LANKA WHERE I CAN MAKE A COMPLAIN REGARDING THIS?
