Neo Sports Plus from February 2nd

Sports fans are in for a treat when LBN which recently launched Neo Sports is expected to launch Neo Sports Plus from Feb 2nd according to sources. We have confirmed that Neo Sports Plus will be launching but at the moment the date stands as 2nd Feb 2007 but it may change.

Neo Sports is a full cricket channel whereas Neo Sports Plus will concentrate on non cricket related sports. Neo Sports is operated by Nimbus Communications. Neo Sports and Neo Sports Plus are just two of Nimbus Communications plans for three channels, the third is called Neo Sports News which is expected to go on air during this year.

Neo Sports is presently India's number one sports channel largely due to the fact that it is a dedicated cricket channel. They also have agreements with the BCCI for telecasting Indian domestic cricket which accounts for much of its popularity. How popular Neo Sports and Neo Sports Plus will be in Sri Lanka is still to be seen due to Neo concentrating a lot on sporting events related to India.

I dont think any true cricket loving channel should play dirty like embarassing their opponents.

Here are some of Neo Sports ads:

Ad #1 - The West Indian eats at a dhaba. He has a great time and makes friends with the locals. They go to watch the cricket together. India smacks the West Indies and the Indian hosts are happy. Tag line - “It is great to be a West Indian in India - except if you are on the cricket field”

Ad #2 - A West Indian couple are snuggling on a boat in the middle of a large and serene lake.. Their guide is very chatty and friendly. The next day, they are in the stands next to each other. India smacks the West Indies and the Indian boatman is happy. Tag line - “It is great to be a West Indian in India - except if you are on the cricket field”

Ad #3: They have a Sri Lankan man being hot curry at the dhaba and the waiters gleefully waiting for him to start eating. The running around looking for water is not there since they’ve established what’s about to happen to him. Tag line ‘Now, even Sri Lankans will have a tough time in India”

Ad #4: A Sri Lankan couple in the boat. Shots of the boatman grinning expectantly at what’s about to happen to them. Same tag line as above.

Also Neo Sports prices are rather high.

You are on the dot man,And Neo has only these 8 matches( WI & SL) and after that they would be showing the Indian domestic cricket,Played on flat paddy fields like indian grounds,Its not worth paying extra to watch only this and the arrogant attitude of Neo will take them no where and a early closure is imminent

money talks! so i guess its not CBN that has to worry but LBN.

as far as we are concerned no one can mess around with SC ruling which CBN obtained but LBN??

Anonymous said...

LBN is the only comapny has Defence clearence. So nothing to worry

Anonymous said...

so CBN has SC ruling and LBN has MOD. so I guess both have nothing to worry.Maybe comet should worry about TRC as deadline is June for going digital.

peaceman said...

Hey guys why not just FAIR PLAY. Why try to push each other down?

Why not just play it nicely and go your own races.

Both companies have clearance to broadcast and will not be harmed again.

It is you idiots who will go and do the next big damage.

So please stop it. And try putting you (nickname or) NAME to your comments (next to Google/Blogger is Other, with the name feature).

Its going to be a big battle for Colombo with LBN and CBN. CBN will win in other areas so LBN has to expand their network.

Also, LBN wont get far by introducing useless channels like Neo Sports, whose advertising and programming mostly SUCKS. I think LBN should introduce DW-TW and TV5MONDE and whatever else they have already promised to introduce.

CBN has to get that equipment and the transponder and show Ten Sports, Star package and other channels. SET MAX will be shown on the channel allocated for SET when live matches and highlights are shown, and will most likely get a seperate channel with the new transponder.

So have good entertainment and have a good time guys, and please play it fairly.

There is nothing wrong with the NEO channel advertisement , being an Indian channel they want make their audience interested about the upcoming matches, more over saying opponent team will have tough time or hard time was not a dirty game at all. These ads are shown not only in the NEO channels but also in several other Indian channels.
These ads only can make the visiting teams and their supporters more strong to win the matches.
Just because the ads are not good, don’t say the channel is not good, after all we are not subscribing to watch the ads.

LBN being a digitize broadcasting network, must find a good way to communicate with their customers and answer their problems in a more secure way. LBN already having a web domain can achieve this quite easily either by standalone or else using the blogger custom domains (its free to use, visit this link for more information http://help.blogger.com/bin/answer.py?answer=55373 ).

I would like to request the admin of this web blog to disable the anonymous login to post the messages, once disabled most of the unwanted messages will not be posted on this blog.

I think someone is trying to get undue advantage by mentioning the name of the CBNsat sales manager,He is a real gentlemen and he doesnt have to resort to petty tactics like putting his name in a blog.

Whoever is doing this,please refrain from using names of others,If you are realy interested use your own name.

I dont know why such a hype about neo cause their coverage is totally shit compared to espn, ten, star. this is especially cause the no of cameras on site is not enough to cover a international match. see it for yourselves tomorrow.this especially cause neo ask for the highest price and deliver shit.

dont take my word for it experience it yourself tomorrow.
