Rasika said...

Sam,
If it is owned by Bauer Media, what has happened to the frequency allocated to VIS. Is this company a subsidiary of VIS or any other venture owned by some other group or a person?

Duffy said...

Allocated frequencies for 'RADIO 2'...

Down South - 99.3FM

nishantha said...

Kiss fm mother Company (Bauer Media) is a UK based media Company.

They have Radio & Tv channel named Kiss on London.

I Think Namal Rajapaksha (Tharunyata hetak) has sold the Frequency to them for a Eng radio and Tv.

Youth Radio and Youth Tv will run under tharunyata hetak Org.

So, Who will buy the Tharunyata hetak's Tamil fm and Tv Channel Frequencies,

Sam said...

To All Of You,
VIS Broadcasting (Pvt) Ltd has got this Frequency for Kalutara 89.8 Fm .

So This New Fm Channel Is Got This Frequency For Colombo.


Nothing Happen To Tharunayata hetak Frequencies.

Sam said...

Please Guys Dont publish What You Think .Find Correct Information and Publish The

SAMPATH said...

Dear sam:

where is SIYATHA TV.you said that
siyatha tv will be coming from last week.what happend to the channel?why don't you post any news regarding siyatha tv?

Pushpamal said...

See... People's Media Network start Radio 2 FM 97.3 from Colombo formely allocated to Kalutara. Same thing happened to Kiss FM 89.8 from Colombo formely allocated to Kalutara. Then FM 89.8 still under VIS.

Sam said...

Pushpamal, Peoples Media Network Still Have The 97.3 For Kaluthara.
This 97.3 Frequency Testing As a Radio2 Is a New Frequency For Peoples Media Network .

Sam said...

SAMPATH, Im Trying To Contac Siyatha . Wait For More Detail

Sam said...

Guys Any Idea About Television and Radio Network TV Channel ?
In Trc Web Site UHF Television Channel Assignments Up Dated List Also They Have Mention That Frequency Allocated For Television and Radio Network Are OPERATIONAL.

Television and Radio Network Colombo 48 OPERATIONAL

Television and Radio Network Laggala 48 OPERATIONAL

Television and Radio Network 48 Gongal

Television and Radio Network Nayabedda 53 OPERATIONAL

Television and Radio Network Hunnasgiriya 53 OPERATIONAL

Rasika said...

No one can use the same frequency from both Colombo & Kaluthara due technical pheripheral issues. so this can't happen. Anyone can use one of these frequencies either from Kaluthara or Colombo.

Sam said...

Then how Can Seth Fm 101.5 Negambo and VisBroadCasting 101.5 Colombo

nishantha said...

When Some org or Company applying for the Fm freq from the TRC, they must provide full details about the powerfullness of the transmitters which they use to broadcast. each transmitter has seperate annual charging fees. it depend on the power of it. Then Gov (Trc)can charge the fees. As we know every Radio and Tv operater should renew their licens in every year.

I think that 'Seth fm' is a religious Channel and broadcasting programmes for christian peopols who living around Negombo Area. Every one know that most of Sri Lankan Catholic people living in Negombo.

So my point is Seth fm useing low band freq only for negombo area. they can broadcast catholic programmes and some advertisments from the area businesmens.

But this Kaluthara and Colombo freq is a seperate issue.

VIS don't want to launch a fm channel only for kaluthara area. defi they have to use powerfull transmitter to cover Kaluthara and Colombo.

We know VIS planned to launch 3 seperate Radio and Tv Channels. As VOA trying to do, Maharaja did.

I think this unnessesary mixedup has done by the Trc. They trying to give freq for all the applications which provide by the private org and companies, and collect huge money for the Trc and state tresuary.

Sam said...

To All ,

I gave Call My Uncel. He Worked for SLRC For Some Period .

DO you Know Parakrama Niriella
famous Drama, Maker. his my Uncel

I Told Him that i want to get Some Information from person Who Worked For media Side .Becoz he knows big People in the Media side.Then he asked from me what is the problem i told that i want know some thing about Frequencie. He Gave me a one persons Number and Told me this person is the best one talk that. I gave a call and had chat with him for few minute.

He told me this ,
I told my question,
He Said that any one can use the same frquencies .

Like this Vis Can use 89.8 for kaluthara and Kiss Can use it For Colombo .

Also i gave calle to peoples media network and I asked what is the frequency for kaluthara then thay said me its 97.3 fm .I asked that rdaio 2 is runnig from 97.3 fm they siad me that it is a new frequency for Colombo

Nik said...

Radio 2 doesnt have 97.3 for colombo. They can only broadcast from kalutara on 97.3

Broadcasting from colombo on 97.3 is illegal while they have license to kalutara.

Sam said...

Nik,
They Have Nother Broadcasting license.This 97.3 fm (New) Frequency is for that.

Becoz When They Change Radio One To English Language I gave call to Peoples Media Network And I Ask About That .They Told Me That They Are Going To Launch Nother Fm Radio Channel. But It Should Be A Sinhala Language. As They Told Me

::dr:: said...

Isn't 89.8 the former frequency of Gold FM? i thought it belongs to ABC Network.

Nik said...

Duffy said...
Allocated frequencies for 'RADIO 2'...

Colombo - 97.3FM
Kandy - 89.5FM
Down South - 99.3FM

-------------------

THERE ARE NO ALLOCATED FREQUENCIES FOR RADIO2.

THEY ONLY HAVE 97,3 AS SPARE FROM KALUTARA AND THEY ARE ILLEGALLY USING IT FROM COLOMBO.

I called TRC and they said they havent issued any frequency for a radio channel called radio 2 and as per TRC 97.3 from kalutara also allocated as Radio 1.

Also TRC was unaware about the 97.3 transmission. They said they must have informed if they have even commenced transmission from Kalutara and still not such.

Nik said...

dr : yes both 107.9 and 89.8 are former ABC frequencies. When they have been siezed transmission, all of their frequencies are been automatically cancelled.

So now there is no such frq for them.

What ever they are using now, are just new frq issued newly for them.

Sam said...

Acording to SIYATHA Tv They Are Now Ready Start There Channel.They Said me That The Tv Channel Will Strat In August With ISLAND WIDE Coverage.

Nik said...

KISS is rocking... R2 cant even hear properly

Nik said...

Tharanga said...

can c vasanthamTV in UHF24 in moratuwa area. yes nick, may be they are going to boardcast PrimeTV on UHF24

Sam said...

Its True That Vasantham Tv On UHF 24 and ITN also Same Frequency .I think they doing a Testing. It means like this Vasntham Tv ends at 12 midnight but ITN ends 12.30 in midnight.At 12-12.30 You Can see ITN from Same frequency.But If you see VHF 9 You Canot Watch ITN at that time. And a nother thing is That After ITN was Closed on 12.30 in the midnight but you can see ITN Logo on UHF 24.This is only at that frequency .

VETTI PAYAL said...

VETTI PAYAL said...

Why people are starting too much radio station in sri lanka? we have too much fm stations here. they can start new TV channels if they wish.

Sam said...

Following Post Was Done By FM
Last Year February Under Voice of Asia to launch Tamil Language Channel

There is another NEW SINHALA FM had registerd as "Sumathi FM" Its owns by mr.Thilanga Sumathipala.TRC spoksman says It will coming on end of this year.They got five FM frequencies by Governenment for cover the hole island.Their Colombo freq. will be 91.6 MHz.

So It Should Be Sumathi FM .

Rasika said...

Sam,
It was on Rivira newspaper.
I heard on today morning SLBC news that they are opening a new high powered transmitting station in Colombo tommorow covering the whole western province at a 2KW power transmitters for each frequencies.

VETTI PAYAL said...

I think ABC is not going to start Sha & Sun FM because now they started special nonstop music show called 'Sha' on Hiru after 9pm and they are using Sun FM T.P number for Gold FM. May be they will start three TV stations like VOA and MTV

Rasika said...

I think that ABC wants to restart Sha & Sun but they are not getting frequencies. In the mean time, they are getting a good challenge from Rhythm FM and therefore they have decided to start "Sha rhythm" on Hiru FM untill they get the required frequencies.

AMD said...

When ABC was given back their frequencies, it was was all changed, EG Gold FM was given SUN fm frequecies. And now KISS is using former Gold FM frequency 89.8. So i dont think we will get SUN and SHA fm any time soon. VOA wanted to get the Gold FM frequency to start a station like SUN FM.

Naleen said...

Just shifting the topic to a testing TV broadcast on Saturday, 1st August. I watched a TV testing programmes exactly on TV 2 UHF line from around 5 pm till may be 11 pm. That was a high powered transmission ( I am in Rathmalana area) which telecasted Vasantham TV programme without its chanal logo on the top. I hope this may be a test broadcast from ITN? Then my problem is what happened to TV 2? Does anybody have any idea.

VETTI PAYAL said...

Youth Radio of VIS broadcast now 107.9 from Kandy & Jaffna.

Sam said...

Naleen ,
There Is Some Thing You Must Know .Befor Tv2 There Was Nother Channel on Same Frequency.Channel Was Called Udayam TV .This Channel Was Owned By SriLanken Government And They Started This Channel For Targeting Eastern Province Election.

When They Launch This Channel They Said This Channel Is Only For Eastern Province People .But After Few Days They Moove This Channel To Tv Lanka Sat Then After Western Province People Also Got A Chance To Watch This Channel.

In That Channel They TeleCasted Mainly Tamil Movie Songs, News And Developing News About Eastern Province. But After Few Weeks Channel Was Relaunch and Tv Lanka Try Air Some Programs Of Their. Like Tv Lanka News And Religous Programs On PoyaDay .

This Channel Was There For Only For 2 Month I Think .Then After Tv 2 Was Came On This Frequency.

After Tv2 Was On That Frequency But Some People Who Lives In Closed To Tv Lanka Told That Still They Can Watch Udayam Tv .

In This Channel They Dont Have Logo .

Sam said...

Tv 2 Will Come Soon. I Went 2-3 Days Passing TV 2 Ofice And I Sow Still People Are Working With Their Tower.I Think They Have Some Technical Problems.

Naleen said...

KISS FM is part of VOA group. Jimmy Dean is currently in charge of it iv heard his voice on the test transmission. THE SAINT, is in charge of the current playlist.

@ SAM

Do u know where VOA broadcasts their channels from, is it from Hunupitiya road, col 2 ?

Sam said...

AMD

What You Saing Is True That Jimmy Is There . But This Channel Is From UK .I Gave A Call To Kiss Fm Mother Company.I Got This Phone Number From The Kiss Fm Website:
+44-208-432-7060.

Sam said...

Hunupitiya road, col 2 and Rathmalana

Duffy said...

I checked this 'KISS FM' issue with the Facebook status....

KISS FM is operated by a media organization based in the UK. And that organization is a subsidiary of 'Voice Of Asia' Networks.

So technically, KISS FM is owned by VOA, the parent company.

Most of the DJ's who used to work for SUN FM have already joined with KISS. 'The Saint' is the Music Controller. After the launch of KISS FM, REAL RADIO will become an oldies station.

Duffy said...

@ Nik (about 'RADIO 2')

I don't agree with your facts! Coz they are all false.

I obtained "RADIO 2" frequencies a while back from the 'People's Media' Network itself.

They have been allocated 97.3FM for both Colombo & Kalutara. They're not using it illegally. Don't underestimate them. This is the same company which operated ETV & ETV2 24 hours a day with an islandwide coverage back in the 90's. There's no way that someone could use a radio frequency in Colombo without TRC knowing about that.

TRC allocates frequencies under the Media Organization's name (People's Media / TNL Radio Network / Voice Of Asia & etc.), NOT under the Radio station name.
As an example, VOA transmits 'REAL RADIO' islandwide on 93FM. but they can later shift it to one of their other allocated frequencies such as 106.7 or 98.6 as long as the said frequencies are allocated for a partcular location (ex: Nuwara-Eliya). So 'People's Media Network' is capable of using previously allocated frequencies for their new/future stations as well without a special approval from the TRC, specially when it comes to a Test Transmission. You only need the separate license from the TRC when the official transmission commences. That's when TRC adds 97.3FM under 'RADIO 2' listing.

My personal opinion is that "RADIO 2" is better. We badly need a station that focuses on the material (Dance/Club music & etc.) aired by SUN FM.

TRC has already mentioned RADIO 2 - 97.3FM as Operational in their Frequency assignment list....

Nik said...

Duffy, please ready TRC frq list carefully. Peoples media have informed TRC as they are tranmitting 97.3 from Magalkanda. Which is ok as 97.3 is allocated for Magalkanda. But they are transmitting it from Colombo. Which is illegal. TRC cannot allocate the same frequency for Magalkanda and Colombo.

By the way, why you said Radio 2 better. Why no KISS. U seems working for Radio 2 ?

Nik said...

Sam, you seems correct. The way KISS broadcasting songs seems so well professional than any other station. They should be definately have some good background to do so. See how Radio 2 play songs.

Sam said...

All,

Peopels Media Network Have Got 3 license . 2 English Radio Stations And 1 Sinhala Radio Channel.

Radio 2 Frequency Is A New for Them . This Is Not There Kaluthara Frequency .

You Can Get Same Frequency From TRC Both Colombo And Kaluthar.This Was Mention By TRC.

Sam said...

Following News I got Fro A Person Who Worked For BOI

Great News SriLanken Largest Televison Network Coming Soon.This Is An A BOi Project. They Are Planing To Launch Sinhala,English,Tamil,Sport,EduCational And A Kid Channel. Mainly They Are Planing To Luanch These Channles .Later They Are planing To Launch Music and Movie Channel.

Project Will Start 2010 January

Sam said...

Western Provincial Council Is Also Planing To Launch A EduCational Tv Channel Soon.Mainly They Are Trgeting To Teach English Language. This Was On LankaDeepa.

Rasika said...

Sam,

How can this be
because 89.8 was earlier allocated to VIS now it owns by VOA.

Again regarding the conversation about the frequencies
Any company can use their frequencies as their will but if you want start a seperate radio station they want to get the broadcasting license from the media ministry
for example radio one was allocated with some frequencies with 97.3Mhz but if they want to use 97.3 for radio2 they want to acquire a seperate broadcasting licence for new radio.

Sam said...

Rasika,
I Have Mention That Peoples Media Network Have 3 Broadcasting License Only For Radio Channels
So Dont Need Get New License .

VETTI PAYAL said...

Sam, You said about that BOI project. I think It is the project where ABC Network got 60% share. According to the ABC Networks Advertisement recently i saw that they mentioned about this BOI project. So we can get great TV channels from ABC.
