Unconfirmed reports coming to us are indicating that Videocon & Dish TV will be launching in Sri Lanka in the very near future. The operators are said to be looking at the possibility of setting up an earth station and uplinking from Sri Lankan soil.
We are unable to confirm these reports, however there were indications back in 2012 of Dish TV expressing an interest to launch services officially in Sri Lanka.
Videocon on the other hand has been the latest entry into the Indian DTH market and has approximately about 10 million subscribers & has the most number of HD channels on offer compared to the other operators.
If this turns out to be true, these two companies will pose a great challenge & increase competition in the rather stagnant pay television market in Sri Lanka.
