Prime TV & Radio to launch on Nov 12th

Sri Lanka's latest English Television & Radio channel (Prime TV and Prime Radio) will launch on Nov 12th 2009 at 10am with a colourful opening ceremony at the BMICH.

These two fully English channels which are sister channels of ITN will carry 24 hour broadcasts. According to reports teresstrial coverage of Prime TV and Radio will in cover Colombo and the suburbs. However Prime TV will be available islandwide via Dialog TV making it the first local English channel on Dialog TV.

Prime TV is expected to rebroadcast Star Cricket & CCTV. However soon other entertainment programmes are expected to be introduced. We urge the management of Prime TV to broadcast programmes not seen by other locals channels and pay television channels.

Prime TV is expected to be on UHF 24 but we are unable to confirm this. We wish Prime TV and Prime Radio all the best in their future endeavours.

This radio 1 bugger is a funny fellow because last time also he sold all the UHF frequencies to EAP and this time he is selling all the FM frequencies to ITN. According to him, this could be a profitable business.
Sam,
It looks like ABC is not in a position to start their other two channels unless they find frequencies from person like radio1 guy.

Rasika I think ABC is not keen on starting their muted radios but according to a person from ABC they're so much in interest to start 3 TV channels in all languages. Because they may feel Embarrassing that VOA kind of media started TV's even though they've commenced recently.

Therefore after more than 10 years journey at media industry ABC will be thinking to start TVs as soon as possible.

With the election coming around anything can happen.
