Sri Lanka's First HD Satellite Television Channel "Thinetha TV" Commence Soon
Steps have been taken to initiate a satellite television channel called "Thinetha TV" with the view of informing the world on economical and social trends achieved by Sri Lanka after the 30-year-long war.
All programmes, which are telecasted in a national level television channel, are expected to be telecasted in this channel. Accordingly, programmes such as news and current affairs, tele dramas and musical programmes, documentaries, youth and women's programmes, sports and live shows will be telecasted. All these programmes will be new creations of Thinetha TV. A special attention has been paid to create these programmes to be complied with the World Television Charter, which is also signed by Sri Lanka, and to media ethics.
This will be the first satellite transmitted television channel of Sri Lanka, which covers 116 countries around the world. It expects to cover Asia, Europe, Middle East, Africa, and Australia. The channel, which aims to provide local information to migrant Sri Lankans and to uplift their taste, expects to telecast programmes in Sinhala, Tamil and English.
