New channel "TV 2" on test

Sri Lanka's newest television channel "TV 2" is presently testing on UHF 53. The channel is said to be run by People's Media Network who are testing Radio 1 on 104.5 FM. This frequency was previously assigned to Udayam Television which was a pro government Tamil language television channel launched targeting the eastern Ppovince during the eastern provincial council elections and over the past few weeks this channel was also visible in the colombo area over this frequency but over the last few days it has been replaced by "TV 2". We are not sure whether Udayam TV is still available in the eastern Province, hopely some of our bloggers from the eastern province should be able to give us some information.

"TV 2" telecasts an assortment of English Songs but with some Tamil and Sinhalese songs thrown in. We are unable to ascertain whether this channel will be a multi lingual channel or a channel telecasting programmes only on a specific language. We request our fellow bloggers to keep updating us when they receive information regarding this television channel.

I'm from Attidiya and before 1st of October I could see crystal clear pictures of "TV2". But now it's not like that but not very poor. Also they have changed their playlist and added some more. Anyway I'm not sure who is the operator of this frequency because very early days I saw "TV Lanka" through this frequency and then "Udayam TV", Now "TV2"...But one thing is for sure, this channel is transmitteng from either Attidiya or Bambalapitiya Tower Building.

TV2 has stopped its telecasts these days. Reason is unknown and it should be UHF CH53, because I searched it within the whole UHF band and could not find. Till the end of September Udayam TV was ran through UHF CH53.

Udayam TV is a TV channel which is started with the support of the SL Govt. and operating by TV Lanka, targeting Nothern & Easten provinces. The main aim of the launch of this TV channel is to promote the government propaganda targeting the Eastern provincial council elections.

@Dilruk Channel called TV2 is sold to ITN and now it is known as PrimeTV. Most probably you will be able to see it from your area through UHF Ch:24. Udayam TV was a temporary TV channel launched by Govt. (operated by TV Lanka) targeting the Eastern Provicial council elections held in 2008. It is off-air now.
