Sri Lanka's 1st sports channel launched

CSN (Carlton Sports Network) has replaced Prime TV over FTA & on all pay television networks that Prime TV was available on. CSN becomes the first locally operated sports channel in the country & it is still expected to retain some of the Prime TV programming giving it a more of a sports & lifestyle channel genre.

This channel is expected to broadcast many of the local big matches as well as school sports events in the near future.

Hey Guys Now ABC Networks become the part of Raynor Silva Holdings Company Ltd. And as their vision they're going to start Shaa FM very soon but not with it's old concept , they decided to resume Shaa as an youth station like Y Fm.

Meanwhile with no surprise there are under works going on for their TV stations as well which expected to be start by end of this year while having 4 Tv channels.

@Rasika,

I would like to know that are there any plans to broadcast Sirasa FM, Sirasa TV, Rupavahini, TV Derana, ITN, Siyatha TV, and all the Sinhala & English radio and TV station to along with all the tamil station through the Kokavil Tower? If so, can pass the respective channel numbers of the each of the station, specially the Sirasa FM frequency in Kokavil.

Rasika said...

Nalin,
As far as I know, Rupavahini will broadcast on VHF channel 08 (their previous frequency for kokavil) and also they will make arrangements to broadcast Channel Eye as well. For private broadcasters, ABC has got frequencies for Kokavil but I am not quite sure whether Sirasa got any frequencies from TRC to Kokavil.

Nalin Kiing said...

Rasika,

Its a good news that ABC has got frequencies for Kokavil, so are they got frequencies only for Sooriyan FM or for their entire radio channels, I mean for Hiru FM, Gold FM, & Sun FM?

Other thing is as far I know (may be I am wrong)SLRC using VHF 8 to broadcast Channel Eye to Jaffna instead of Rupavahini, so if it's a correct info which channel number SLRC going to use to transmit Rupavahini to Jaffna? (VHF 05)?

In concern of Sirasa FM if still they didn't get any frequencies to Jaffna as one of the premier channel in SL, I feel government may be blocking there way of acquiring frequencies to Jaffna, since TRC had cold fight against Shakthi TV regarding their Jaffna frequency.

So keep us update with the latest in and out info about Kokavil tower, since its opening will be a great moment of SL media industry after a two decade.

And Thanks Rasika for your priceless updates.

Hey Guys, Do you notice that there is some testing going on 104.0 FM from Colombo & Negombo Area As silent mode. Is there any chance of a new radio station rise? Please update on this.

Vishwa said...

@Chandar; Now there's non-stop music on 104Mhz, I too wonder whether what this channel is...
is it something like "RADIO-1"...

Chander said...

@Vishwa: hey anyone remember there was Gold FM testing through 104.0 for sometime in Colombo area....

So chances are 104.0 owned by ABC & may be testing of Shaa FM?

But earlier this Frequency owned by Radio 1.

I think 104mhz is not owned by ABC because it has been allocated to Neth (AR) a longtime ago to start their tamil channel. But it looks like they have changed their mind and going to start another channel probably to cater to selected listners giving contemporary music.
