Vasantham Tv to launch on June 25th

Sri Lanka's newest Tamil language channel "Vasantham TV" will launch on June 25th according to sources quoting ITN. The channel is presently testing on VHF 9. This will be third full Tamil language channel in country after 'Shakthi TV" & "Nethra TV". The test transmissions are said to be not as clear as ITN however it may improve before the launch. This channel should at least cover the entire Western Province before the launch.

We believe that "Prime TV" will launch soon after this launch is completed.

no sign of Vasantham tv in Gampaha area. i think this bcos they didnt expand this channel out of colombo. but when ch eye (Rupavahini2) starting they give Quality pictures. why ITN didnt want to start it as a island wide channel?

We will be launching our all-Tamil television channel Vasantham TV on Thursday and we hope to cater to a wider audience. Initially it would be available on Dialog TV, Peo TV and some cable networks. It will be just like ITN but a fully-Tamil version. I think this is the need of the hour.

ITN was also planning to start a new English channel soon.

This Was mention By AnuraSiriwardhana Director of ITN Networks.

It's good news that ITN will be launching a Tamil channel. I hope to see the English channel as well from ITN because there are a lot of Sri Lankans especially youth wanting to learn both Tamil & English as well as Sinhala. Even though English is not official it is very much a de facto language in Sri Lanka and also many people probably like to see popular American & British programming. Hopefully other stations will take up extra Tamil and English channels too.

I saw one of the advertisement published by ABC network and in this not like earlier, they have removed logos of Sun FM and Sha FM. Does this mean that, they do not have any plan restart these channels.

Voice of Asia have 5 frequencies for Nuwaraeliya (including one of previous ABC frequency 93Mhz). Since they have only three radio channels, why do they have 5 for Nuwaraeliya. Are they planning to start another two radio channels. the way they have been allocated frequencies is miracle because they have got all most all the available frequencies in FM, VHF and UHF bands. What are they trying to do

nick said...

i think owner of VOA like to collect frequencies. they start test transmission of siyatha tv in 2006, but still not begun. but thay have frequencies more than MTV network who controling 3 separate tv channels.

According to Trc Web site there some mistake.

Lak FM - 93.3 Nuwaraeliya,Islandwide

SLBC Commerciel Service -93.3 Colombo

Voice of asia network -90.9 Kandy

Vis broadcasting -90.9 kandy

Sam said...

According to Trc Web site Voice Of Asia 98.6 Frequency only for Nuwara Eiya

Rasika said...

In this type of environment, it is a shame that TRC is not issuing frequencies to a station like Sun FM.
Lak FM - 93.3Mhz - Nuwaraeliya is correct because they are broadcasting from Nuwaraeliya cutting of the direction of west.
Siyatha FM - 98.6Mhz - Nuwaraeliya is correct.
