Star Movies India pulls out

After a few years in Sri Lanka, Star Movies India which replaced Star Movies Asia will be pulled out from Sri Lanka tomorrow. Star Movies India which is the only version of Star Movies operated by Star India, all others are operated by Fox International Channels was introduced due to a regionalization drive undertaken by Fox International. Star Movies Asia was rebranded Fox Movies Premium.

Now due to this move Sri Lankan movie fans are left without access to the movies that are distributed for broadcast by studios to Star Movies India & which is also released to Fox Movies Premium in the rest of Asia. The only access we have is access to movies released to HBO Asia which has faithfully stood by this region.

Due to this move a surge in movie piracy is expected. It's sad to note that a multinational like Fox would make moves that result in the increase of piracy.

Fox International should take immediate steps to release Fox Movies Premium to Sri Lanka since Star India is no longer interested in the Sri Lankan market. It should be noted that Fox Movies Premium is available in Maldives which also has access to the entire stable of channels operated by Fox in Asia. Sri Lanka should be included in the Asian feed for all Fox distributed channels and Indian feeds of Star should be halted.

Literally Star India should be kicked out of Sri Lanka.

That last line tho' :D

Not just that. Due to direct tax of 25% imposed on service providers as telecommunication levy, satellite TV operators are expected to be affected by that too as 27.55% tax earlier affected satellite tv service providers too.

Manaslu Circuit Trek & Tsum Valley Trekking, located within Mid North West Himalaya straddles the border with Nepal & Tibet / China on the ancient Trans Himalayan Salt and Caravan routes where trade still exist among the highlanders of Manaslu and Tsum valley people.
Manaslu & Tsum Valley Trekking a perfect combination on off the beaten trails, where western trekkers and adventurer seldom visits or explore this hidden and scenic Tsum valley enclosed within massive Ganesh Himal known as Yangra in Tibetan and Kutang for Manaslu, where the ancient Sanskrit Manas name comes from as ‘spirit of the mountain or soul’ (like the holy Lake Manasarover near Kailash in Tibet).
Mt. Manaslu stands at 8,163 m / 26,781 ft high, as world's 8th highest peak, which was first climbed by Japanese expedition in 1956 by T. Imamishi. K. Kato and M. Higeta with Nepalese Sherpa guide G. Norbu.
Manaslu with range of stunning peaks Bouddha Himal, Himal-Chuli peak which follows the ridges of Ganesh Himal towards eastern direction where the hidden Tsum valley located in the midst of Manaslu and Ganesh Himal massive range of mountains, certainly a pure wilderness to explore this undisturbed region of North Mid Western Himalaya.
Starting this wonderful adventure taking an overland drive towards hills and valley of Gorkha town or from Dhading district which leads you at Arughat, a warm low farm village at present stands as a big town on the shelf of raging Buri-Gandaki River fed feom Mt. Manaslu and Ganesh Himal glaciers.
First heading towards hidden valley of Tsum following the river upstream for few days past nice hill villages of Soti-Khola-Philim-Jagat and Dyang to reach upper valley of Tsum at Mu Gompa which lies close towards the border of Tibet hidden behind massive Ganesh Himal, an interesting spot with dramatic scenery of mountains-hills and valley.
At Tsum valley explore its ancient and interesting monasteries of Mu-Gompa and Chokhan Paro located above 3,700 m high in the shade of giant Himalayan peaks with hike to saint Milarepa holy meditation cave of 11th centaury at Nele includes a visit to Rachen Gompa.
After an exciting and wonderful time on Tsum known as the valley of Happiness, heading towards further North West to join on the trail of Manaslu circuit trek, where the walk leads you on higher Manaslu valley situated upper Gorkha district and then route leads past Lo and Bhi-Gaon villages to reach a large Samagaon village, which is on route to Manaslu base camp and Larkya-La pass.
At Samagaon explore the ancient culture of Manaslu Bhotia tribe of people who have migrated from across the border in Tibet, where the ancient culture of Buddhism religion still practiced with much trade between Tibet and the local villagers of Manaslu Circuit Trek.
After rest day for local hike and acclimatization walks leads past Samdu village to reach at the base of Larkya-La pass known as Phedi or bottom, this spot also called as Dharmasala or Larkya Bazaar, where in early days huge trade and market used to take place.
