CBNsat now at Singer Mega

Singer Mega is also selling CBNsat connections these days since previously it was only the normal Singer outlet (now called Singer Plus) that were selling these connections.

We have also got news that CBNsat has been telling it's prospective customers that Star Tv package and Ten Sports will be available during the month of February and also that Rupavahini, Channel Eye and ITN will also be available by the end of this month. This is according to a few people who have inquired about CBNsat connections. In fact a blogger has also commented in our previous post about this.

It does seem probable since CBNsat will be acquiring their third transponder during february and it may just come to pass and Star Package, Ten Sports, Disney Channels and SET Max channels may be made available during february.

If it takes place as said then there will definitely be a massive increase in the subscriber base of CBNsat considering the fact that the ICC World Cup is in March and the first Twenty20 Cricket World Cup will be also held later this year.

It's better if CBNSat get the French Channel TV5. It shows some good comedies and films with English subtitle. It is better than the Zee Studio

Kid said...

TV5 Monde shows Uncensored adult contents too.

Looser said...

May be it's French know so far I didn't see any

hush said...

guys and gals having anything of adult nature is going to cause some issues and we do not need it at the moment.If FTV has been held back due to this issue and cetainly TV5 is asking for trouble big time.

lets play it safe.

Looser said...

Agreed, I didn't see anything on adult nature so far, I started watching this channel few days ago. I may be wrong.

Yesterday there was a film about an old civilization and the women were topless. Can we call it an adults only film. I don't know. SLRC showed a same type of documentary few months back.

Anyway if there is anycase CBNSat should not add it. We got much more better channels on CBNSat and not willing loose for TV5.

MANIL said...

TV 5 MONDE,IS A HIGHLY RESPECTED CHANNEL,AND IT IS OFFICIAL TV CHANNEL BROADCAST AT THE FREANCH EMBASSY IN SL AND THE ALLIANCE,

IT IS FREELY AVAILABLE IN DISH TV & TATA SKY,AND IF THEIR WERE ANY MATERIAL WHICH IS NOT CONSISTENT,THE INDIAN GOVERNMENT WOULD HAVE BEEN THE FIRST TO BAN IT.

"CBNSAT SUBSCRIBERS UNITE"

In Sri Lanka only few people speaking & understand Hindi. But in CBNSat channel list there are many Hindi channels available.
I believe that most people not watching this Hindi craps. so Why CBNSat management can't remove these & insert some channels like Disney
I suggest Blog Admin to do a survey of CBNSat channels to find out what are the channels mostly watch by this blog members.

Looser said...

Yes most of the people don't understand Hindi but they watch Hindi Movies. Mainly house wives. So it is not fair to remove those Hindi channels (at the moment 4)

We have to wait till next month as Kalu says

Vishkid said...

I for one am willing to pay a premium to watch quality sports content - most importantly Rugby - if Dialog can provide the SING or HK feeds of sports channels.

I'm sure (and I know) that there are quite a number of others (around 8-10K would be an educated guess) who are willing to do the same.

I'm not proposing this as an immediate request - but as something for Dialog to mull over as and when the DTH market place opens up.

kaluperuma said...

Vishkid - I sure agree with you and have brought to the notice of the people concerned about having a rugby channel(Specialy Star HK which at present is the premier broadcaster of rugby).With the six Nations comming up in march,and Dialog sponsoring the recently concluded mercantile sevens and actively participating in rugby promotion will be a reality.

LBN or Shirantha Herath who seems to be an ardent fan of rugby used to switch to the HK feed and give the the match live(Illegal) and whether he will continue the practice is to be seen.

As for the other channels like Disney and Star will be a reality with the addition of the new transponder.

Sri Lankan mobile operator Dialog rolls out high bandwidth wireless services

Jan 23 (LBO) – Sri Lankan mobile operator Dialog said Tuesday it had rolled out broadband wireless services for a few pilot customers, with plans to extend it to other parts of the island over the next few months.

The WiMAX (World Interoperability for Microwave Access) services will be offered to customers in Hambantota, Matara, Galle, Kurunagala, Anuradhapura and Polonnaruwa.


Does anybody know when it will be available to general public island wide?

bank_dude said...

I thank CBN tech guys for correcting TP2 time problem.

D.L.R. said...

From yesterday picture quality is bad, most of the channels get stucked. Can any tech guy give us the reason.

Kalu, when will we receive our first bill, is it counting from 1 st Jan or from 1 st of Feb?

bank_dude said...

Earlier, local channel list contained Rupavahini, Eye, ITN, Swarnavahini, Derana & TNL in the CBN website. (Prices & packages). Now they have dropped Rupavahini, Eye & ITN from the list.

D.L.R. said...

Why CBN cant include Neth Fm to it's radio list. I also like Siyatha F.M also line up in the CBNSat radio list.

What is the meaning of "EPG"
Can CBN to activate reminder button & Game buttons of the Remote

TrackZeroBad said...

EPG - Electronic Programme Guide

It will show you whats now and next in the (selected) channel.

Looser said...

Reminder button is working.

Siyatha will not be on CBNSat. It has got connection with TVLanka and they are planning their satellite telecast commence from next month with the Siyatha TV. It was on a Sinhala news paper last Sunday

channa said...

As for Rupavahini,Eye,ITN being dropped from the channel list in the web site,There is nothing to worry as the web designers have inadvertantly included the channels,Inspite of CBNsat"s insistance that the site should be updated only when the channels are on air.

So there is nothing to worry or there is no change of plans and they will be available in due course.

D.L.R. said...

Looser,
Can you tell me how to keep a reminder.

Looser said...

d.I.r.,

press the EPG button then you can get all the channels with the current and next programmes. (Not All) select the programme you wish and press the REMINDER button.

At the moment they are giving only the current and next programmes only. So you can set only the next programme.

Vishkid said...

Thanks looser - that will be useful especially when the EPG gets evolved.

Kalu - thanks for taking that up with the relevant ppl. I'm hoping for some relief for Rugby fans as the world cup plus several important tours are billed for this year.

I know LBN shows Rugby matches at times but I'm not in a service area so no luck there. And Rugby is shown at devilish times so can't watch them at pubs or restaurants all the time :D

If you guys know any developments/other avenues on these fronts - keep us posted.

Content and quality wise I think CBN is stable now (that accounts for the very few comments on the blog these days :D) - we are eagerly awaiting new channel developments.

It is better if they can add some new channels others (DishTV/ Tatasky) don't have. We like surprises!

No update or anything for 2 or 3 days and it is sad. I also little busy last few days.

Ok. I got a problem not about CBN ot DTH.

Jesika said...

Hi kalu!

We are waiting for TP3

I'm always with this blog !! checking every hour!!

kaluperuma said...

Hi Guys,By February end or begining of March, transponder three will be there for sure,There is no problem in securing the transponder, its taking time beacuse CBNsat needs some additional equipment and getting them down will take some time,Disny and Disney toon for sure and be optimestic of star and TEN.

LST - They are in discussion with NEO and hopefully it will work out(Their pricing is a bit on the high,compare to other sports channels)

PS - Umbage site eken NERO PREMIUM download karala install kara witharai,Badu niyamata weda,Keep it up LST you are doing a great job

Kevin said...

Neo Sports is back on Tata Sky from 26th January.

About TV5, if anyone has a 6 feet dish, TV5 channel is frr to air on AsiaSat 3S satellite (3760 H 26000 7/8)

Lightning_Struck_Tower said...

k guys. we found a nice little application which allows you watch world Tv channels online.

We're currently testing it and if everything goes well it will be posted today.

Most of the stations dont work we've been able to watch NASA TV and Bloomberg USA without any issue so far.

Stay tuned

MANIL said...

LBN IS BROADCASTING NEO SPORTS (CRICKET CHANNEL) AND THEY WILL DEFENEITLY CAPITALIZE ON THIS WHEN THEY START ISSUIENG NEW CONNECTIONS AND WITH THE INDIA-SL SEREIS COMMING UP,THEY MAY BE TARGETTING THIS AS A BIG OPPORTUNITY FOR PROMORTION OF THEIR CONNECTIONS.

KALU- AS YOU MENTIONED THAT THEY WERE IN DISCUSSION WITH NIMBUS SPORTS,PLEASE TELL YOUR MANGEMENT TO IMMEDIATLY LAUNCH NEO,IF NOT LBN CAN CAPITALIZE.
