Gold FM is probably the only radio station in Sri Lanka that is not available online. Why are they not interested. In this modern era, there are plenty of inexpensive way to stream online.

Duffy said...

VASANTHAM FM is now on 102.4FM.

Rasika said...

I saw a comment by one guy in that ABC has been issued few frequencies. Is that true?

Mario said...

Here is the full article.

Duminda Silva gets 27 radio frequencies
Friday, 28 May 2010 17:36

According to sources in Telecommunication Regulatory Commission of Sri Lanka Colombo District UPFA Parliamentarian Duminda Silva is to be provided with twenty seven radio frequencies.

A highest person in the government has directed the Chairman of the Commission to make arrangements for Parliamentarian Duminda Silva to have the frequencies. It has been revealed that the Parliamentarian has already made all arrangements to commence four radio channels.

Mr. Duminda Silva has also asked for four TV channels from this top person in the government. However, the Telecommunication Regulatory Commission has so far not received any direction regarding this. According to our sources the permits for the radio frequencies have been issued in Duminda Silva’s brother’s name.


As I said earlier likewise VIS Broadcasting ABC also looking to start 4 radio stations (resuming Sha, Sun fm & may be classical Sinhala Fm like Ran and another tamil radio. They can do magic with new 27 Fm frequencies they got now.

Not only that they're hoping to start 4 Tv ( Hiru Tv, Gold tv, Sooriyan Tv & another TV as well)

They already have UHF frequencies for 1 TV.

With ABC expanding their operation Now we have VIS, ABC, EAP, MTV/MBC, VOA will be the big medias in sri lanka.


Hiru Fm and Gold Fm are starting there official website soon as and


Rasika said...

If so ABC will be the biggest radio broadcaster in Srilanka with 7 radio channels with Hiru, Sooriyan & Gold also will be the biggest media group in srilanka with 7 radio channels and 4 TV channels

nisha said...

I think all the Sri Lankans Should understand about Radio and Television media.

The Things happening in our tv and radio sets is not tv and radio.

its a very complicated and very respective profession.

grabbing lots of tv or radio frequencies is not a guideline to a good Quality media.

Every Tv channel should have good programmes to telecast. without playing backtoback music videos.

There is a one Example on this issue is THtv on dialog tv. They dont have any programme to telecast. only talkshows.

no plan, No vision, just only some youth's to run a tv station.

As a people its not big issue, because THtv running on Dtv paltform. but the terrestrial frequencies are property of the people. upcomming ABC's 4 Channels and Others (VIS 1 and VIS 2) should understand this.

Rasika said...

so far TRC has not issued the said 27 frequencies to ABC or Duminda Silva.
Admin?????????? why are you silent? Please be active and give us news on these things. there are lot happening in the media but you are not publishing anything at all.

Kumar said...

What is Dialog DTV frequency? Is it active?

Rasika said...

The Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (TRC) has decided to allocate the frequencies allocated to the controversial Channel 9 network to Asia Broadcasting Company (ABC) without publicly auctioning the frequencies.

Although frequencies need to be allocated through a public auction in a transparent manner since they are considered public property according to the TRC Act, the Channel 9 frequencies have been assigned to ABC networks without following any legal procedures.

The TRC has also decided to re-assign the nine frequencies that were taken away from the ABC networks following the Ranminitenne incident.
TRC Director General Anusha Pelpita said that frequencies were not allocated to Channel 9 and that ABC has not been assigned frequencies.

However, he said that following a Media Ministry directive, two frequencies that were formerly with the Company have been released to it once again.

When asked if nine frequencies have been released to the Company, the director general said that only two frequencies were assigned.

However, sources from TRC said that ABC has been assigned eight radio frequencies and TV frequencies that were initially assigned to Channel 9.

Several attempts to get a comment on the matter from ABC Managing Director Raynor Silva failed.

Reliable sources from the TRC said that ABC is to commence a TV channel and has already made plans to recommence Sun FM and Shaa FM.

Former head of Max and Art TV has been appointed to head ABC’s TV channel that is to be launched shortly.

The ABC had 21 radio frequencies that were used by the Company’s five radio stations before the Ranminitenne incident and the TRC on the orders of the Media Ministry held back nine frequencies from the Company.

TRC sources said that although the Media Ministry initiated an investigation into the issue, it was stopped midway after Duminda Silva joined the government and the TRC was ordered to re-assign some radio frequencies to ABC

It is confirmed that ABC has anyhow managed to get FM and TV frequencies from TRC (through its D.G Anusha Pelpita)

Eventhough some of these frequencies will be interfered with other operational frequencies severly they managed to get them...

ABC has got 5 new FM frequencies for Colombo along. To avoid other media stations presure TRC iussued 3 frequencies under the name of Magalkanda site (Just suburb to CMB) but ultimately it covers Colombo. so they got 5 new FM frequencies and existing 3 thatz mean all together 8 FM for CMB along...(*&%$@&*

FM for Colombo

92.4 MHz (Colombo)
92.8 MHz (Magalkanda)
95.8 MHz (Magalkanda)
98.8 MHz (Colombo)
102.8 MHz (Magalkanda)

TV for Colombo

CH 45 (Magalkanda)
CH 56 (Colombo)
CH 38 (Kikiliyamana - NuwaraEliya)

Its only one thing we can say for other radio stations 'Devi Pihitai!!'

Mario said...

Why on earth would you need 5 frequencies for Colombo. They will anyways transmit from WTC so whats the fuss about ?

@ any official confirmation of this news and when will they start Test transmission ?

Rasika said...

have you got all the frequency details. If please publish all the frequency details here or give us the source.

Rasika said...

ABC is getting frequencies for Magalkanda to increase the coverage of Hiru and some other channels becuase there are many pockets hilly areas around some part of the Colombo, Gampaha, Kegalla and Ratnapura districts where Colombo or Nuwaraeliya frequencies cannot cover substantially.

Mario said...

@ Rasika

Ok, i thought it was all 5 for SUN/SHA FM.

So I guess we can assume that 98.8 & 92.4 Colombo frequencies are for SUN/SHA ?

Where is Magalkanda located ?

Rasika said...

Magalkanda is located close to Ruwanwella between Ruwanwella and Urapola towns. On that mountain, few towers are located including a huge Dialog tower. Neth FM and Lak FM are already transmitting from that location on 105.9Mhz and 100.2Mhz respectively. It is very good location to cover the whole western provice and some parts of the Kegalle, Ratnapura and Nuwaraeliya districts including Kitulgala, Yatiyanthota areas.

Mario said...


Thanks for the useful info.

According to ABC Website they are already transmitting from Magalkanda, so we can maybe assume additional 3 frequencies for Hiru, Sun & Sha.
