CSN to close March 1st

According to reports being received, Carlton Sports Network (CSN) is to shutdown from 1st March. Accordingly employees have been sent on leave & many are being compensated for the loss. Claiming to be a sports dedicated channel this channel however devoted much of its time to non sports related programming as well.

The channel has a redistribution agreement with Setanta Sports for the "LIVE" broadcast of rugby & has also used the transmitters of ITN to carry out it's activities. It should be stated that they used the license held by ITN to carry out their operations, since they commenced operations with the closure of Prime TV. With the channel closing down, we are not certain whether the operations will be taken over by another party. Prime TV may or may not return since that channel too was a failure.

We hope that the Setanta deal will be worked with another party, probably MTV Sports. CSN was on the verge of telecasting the ICC World Cup using rights stripped from SLRC which thankfully ended up back in SLRC's hands.

Even though it's sad to see a channel go, however the unethical practices of this channel were bound to return & bite them, one day or the other.

could you be more specific about what you call "unethical practices of this channel"?

and be specific about "non sports related programming". what are they exactly?

and why do you make no reference to new unplayable huge tax targeted at this one channel in interim budget of new backdoor government?
-

are you so selectively blind and unspecific, because you are intellectually dishonest, or just plain ignorant?

That answer will answer for all your questions.

Why can't they give the frequencies to Rupavahini's Nethra TV, splitting the channel from a 12 1/2 hour block on Eye?
