According to unconfirmed reports that reached us, Max TV will relaunch as U TV & Max Radio will relaunch as U FM. We are not sure whether the television station will be a mainly English channel as before or will revert to a multilingual broadcast, telecasting Sinhala & English programming.
As to whether the station is to be leased to another party is yet to be determined. Max TV which originally started off as a GEC telecasting programmes of various languages was converted to a mainly English GEC about two years ago.
An expected date for the relaunch is not known yet. Please keep us updated on the latest on Max TV/Radio as the days progress.
