LBN Appeals Court hearing today

It seems that LBN is having an Appeals Court hearing today (Jan 11th) but we are unable to confirm this. Lets hope that it all ends well for LBN management and their staff today bringing the seven month ordeal to a close.

The last seven months have been the darkest in the cable television industry for Sri Lanka.

Hopefully today is the last day of court hearings and nothing more should be there hereafter. If today is the last hearing we will be expecting an official announcement from LBN.

Please keep us updated folks.

I think the technical guys of LBN have managed to turn around the customer attitude towards LBN for good.

So Hats off to the technical guys.

I think Mr Shirantha Herath should take a serious note of the hard work performed by the LBN technical guys.

Keep up the good work.

For new customers to a local cable network...

Make a informed decision.

LBN has the following premium channels that is not available on CBN.( Star World, Star Movies,Disney Toons, Disney,V,Bloomberg,Channel News asia,Sun Tv, Vijay)

CBN has the following premium channels that is not available on LBN.(A1, Pogo, Discovery,Travel and Living,SET, Zee Cafe,Zee Music,animal Planet,animax)radio channels also available.

thats the current situation,if you look at the future CBNsat is looking at 100+ premium channels and by FEB will sign up the third transponder with channel capacity of 18 more channels.They have signed up disney toon and disney.lined up are star world,star movies,SET max which will be showing world cup cricket.Of course they have to add more tamil channels such as sun TV, Vijay.

future plans of LBN still not announced other than going digital.

Comet is limited to 18 channels due to technology been analogue and no news or plans about their future other than revamping of their web site.they do have some legal issues due to TRC needing 2.4Ghz frequency for wimax launch and condition imposed to go digital by june 2007.expansion of customer base is also limited due to technology.

FTV is a big no no under current situ with all cable operators.

its your money make the decision after you are satisfied that you are getting the product that you want as its a investment.

I personally believe that CBN is a better option. Lbn does have 60 channels but i think Cbn will get more premium channels soon. Also it has the EPG. Even if it does not work on all channels now it soon will wont it?

And it has good quality. I live on the edge of LBN coverage and i dont want comet... so.

LBN Premium covers Zee Cafe and Zee Music... however it is not mentioned in the LBN website (Channel List). Thanks.
