LBN replaces MGM with Cinema World Asia

With MGM ceasing transmissions in this region from the end of this month, LBN have added Cinema World Asia to their line up of channels. MGM initially replaced Star Movies India which withdrew broadcasting rights from Sri Lanka.

LBN is celebrating 15 years in the pay television industry & is one of the pioneers in the business. It seems that are slowly but surely bouncing back from the unfortunate incidents that took place almost a decade ago.

LBN Cable TV adds Medi Biz TV

LBN cable TV which has been facing some hard times during the recent past have added a new channel, which is being touted as being Sri Lanka's first 24 hour health channel.

The channel is expected to be available on LBN's Colombo network. There is no indication on when or if the channel will be available on LBN's regional network.

In order to stay competitive LBN should start improving the quality of it's regional networks.

LBN adds "Sindu TV"

With effect from yesterday LBN has added satellite music channel "Sindu TV" to it's line up. The channel which broadcasts on Eutelsat is first & only music channel of Sri Lankan origin.

It's great to see a few developments on LBN after a relatively quite year or two in the past. Whether this is a move that will be continued in the days to come is yet to be seen, however LBN must progress since competition on the pay television sector is to increase soon. 

We are unable to confirm whether this channel is available for regional LBN operations too.

Downgraded Trace TV HD added

LBN have added a downgraded feed of Trace TV HD & will feed it to subscribers as a SD channel. Trace TV which specializes in Urban music genre has been subsequently present in Sri Lanka before being removed by another operator. We are not sure whether this channel will be available to LBN subscribers in all regions.

At present LBN operates an analog & digital service in colombo & an analog service in other parts of the island.

Setanta Sports feed switching for RBS Six Nations

LBN Cable TV will switch feeds of "Setanta Sports Asia" from tomorrow Feb 1st to accommodate the "LIVE" broadcast of the RBS Six Nations Rugby. This means that during the "LIVE" rugby, LBN will carry a different Setanta Sports feed in the channel slot allocated to Setanta Sports.

Firstly thanks should go to Setanta Sports for providing Sri Lankan rugby fans with a separate feed even though Setanta doesn't hold the rights for the majority of countries it covers & Sri Lanka is a relatively small market. Secondly thanks should go to LBN Cable TV for taking steps to ensure that their subscribers do not miss out on the rugby action.

2013 a year in review

Looking back at LBN over this past year, there is nothing much to highlight except for the return of the HBO channels which returned after a few months of being not available in Jan this year.

With nothing of significance happening but being looked forward to such as the introduction of HD services, increase in coverage. We hope these dreams are realized at least during 2014.
