Please don't keeping saying something when so much is done. When Asia pacific feed is broadcast, people will start talking about Europe feed. First of all let LBN introduce these channels no matter from where the feed is coming, after that decide on the quality.

Hey LBN guys,

This is very good work. I hope this would be a very good collection of channels for avarage and above average viewers.
I hope that Ten Sports will come in future as Comet is in the verge of bankrupcy. Try to grab the exclusive rights to LBN othervise Dialog will throw money arround and get the exclusivity to them and that would be athe last thing you want. Please be quick and make sure TenSports is yours.

Good Luck for the future which seems to be very bright and shiny.

We will pay you from February itself, please send us the bills.
I think you have suffered enough financially. This is the only way we, the customers, can help you.

I am an LBN customer in Colombo 5. So far the service, I have received from LBN has pretty dismal. When LBN was on air again, the picture quality was pretty bad with heavy distortions etc. After two visits by the service guys, I still have no sound even with the cable box and the TV being on max levels. I was told everything will be right in a week but given the service I have received so far, I am not holding my breath.

I called LBN and asked for a leaflet on the channel packages, and was told to come to their office in Narahanepita and pick it up. I understand your website is still under construction. Even though if it does not have all the bells and whistles, at least the basic information should be up and running.

A word about the World Cup. It's a huge disppointment that this will be exclusive to Dialog.

I do like to support the small guy and if I do switch which I am considering seriously, it is because LBN has not got some of the basics right like customer service.

Customer service at everywhere seems to be delivering poor services.

Don't get disappointed friend, you can watch it through SLRC. At least 5 ball overs :)

I strongly feel that cable tv providers should have some arrangements to share the coverage of an important event like this.

I bought a connection last week to replace my existing Comet Cable package at my parent's house

The picture quality is like DVD..... rather like a pirated DVD of a camera copy of a movie! Comet cable's HBO was almost the same quality...

Just because its digital doesn't mean its like a DVD. Swarnavahini is awful. Like a zoomed picture from a VCD. LBN is miles ahead in the picture quality dept.

The sound quality if ok though.

So get LBN you fool! Dont come here to talk about useless competitors.

Who the f**k are you? This is for comments....Are you admin to set guidelines for comments?

sarath said...

your correct.

As comment in DTV blog at last all went to old Rupavahini to watch O/C.B'cose most are new for Max. I am outside from S'lanka.We watch last two W/C with Max with 5 or 5.5 balls/over with aaaads. All did big mistake buying new conn. to watch W/Cup with max.

Anonymous said...

You idiot sarath. The last two world cups were not shown on Max. Max is showing only this World Cup. If I am right Ten Sports showed the last world cup.

I think the one before was either Ten or ESPN/Star.

Do not mislead the people.

sarath said...

Not me you idiot.In this region no other than Sony Ent.have rights last, this and coming also.In last one "Extra innings" showed in Ten? Expert coments with "Chaaru" showed in Ten? Have you ever seen max telecast before?Don't talk things you don't know idiot.Ten show 90% live cricket played in west indies (not wold cup)No one can bid with Sony Ent.For World cup rights in this region.Ten from dubai.Not me you misled the people

Anonymous said...


ESPN and Star Sports have won the ICC bid and have secured rights for the next 11 years to broadcast the World Cup and all ICC events. They have won the regional rights too. Sony did not bid this time and is expected to exit sports broadcasting.

I think you should update yourself on new rights holders. Looks like you woke up after hibernating for a long time.

sarath said...

Thanks for update. If so, huge price hike will come for B/rights.(not for cable/sat operaters)

Dear friends,

CELLTEL / TIGO call center workers listening to phone calls through their network

I am Dumith Rathnayake and I am sending this letter so that you know the dangers of using the Celltel / TIGO network.

My girlfriend is a Celltel subscriber. Last year from mid August onwards I got to know that Celltel call center workers were illegally listening to my phone calls but I dismissed the matter because I did not believe it could really happen until a friend of mine recounted every word I spoke with my girlfriend once from what he heard through a recorded clip by one such worker. Further, these call center workers have being accessing incoming call logs of Celltel (TIGO) subscribers and distributing those numbers to their friends.

I directly complained to Celltel in writing and they called me and confirmed that they would look into the matter and hold an investigation. After seven days, a lady named Vindya, the Customer Care Manager of TIGO sent me a letter saying that they would not proceed with the case because the owner of the sim did not make a complaint. I pointed out that the calls were originated by me and I also am equally affected by the actions of the individual which Celltel must bear responsibility to.

I also found out that this call center worker has also illegally got the incoming lists of many other Celltel (TIGO) numbers, especially of girls and giving them out to his friends. Also he has obtained messages sent to Celltel numbers, listened incoming and outgoing calls to and from Celltel numbers misusing the power and accessibility he has as a call center worker.

I was using a Mobitel phone to dial the Celltel number and they are telling me to complain about the listening of the calls to Mobitel, which is a total idiotic suggestion as this is the work of a Celltel worker.

It is clear that Celltel (TIGO) has not any interest in protecting the privacy and the rights of those who are using their network but only of protecting their errant employees. If they were at least a bit genuine in helping those affected in this case & saving their name they would hold an inquiry and an investigation as such employees only degrade the quality of a company.

I would like to warn you again before you make a call from or to a Celltel (TIGO) number ( numbers starting with 072* *** *** ) as your call may no longer be private and most probably be listened to by a jobless call center worker at TIGO. If the privacy of a call is not anymore, what is the point of mobile phones and communication at all?

Please pass on this e-mail to your friends and let them know of the conduct of TIGO (Celltel) and their call center workers, because we should never let anyone violate our right of freedom and privacy.

Thank you.

I think Celltel has now filed a case against this guy for defamation!

Don't know who's correct. Celltel says listening in is not possible.

The best part is that they have said this allegation is the work of someone jealous of their new launch......ROFL.... Who would be jealous of thier launch? They went from being a brand known by all of Sri Lanka to a no name brand overnight with the launch. Ask a villager what Tigo is and they'll probably tell you it's a new soft drink brand.....

Anonymous said...

I agree with the Anon 11.56. I don't understand why anyone will be Jealous of Tigo (celltel). Their service has no real value and in my opinion Hutch with it's limited coverage offers a much better range of services.

AMD said...

True, Celltel has to do much more than jus change their name, it they are to come up in the market and compete with Mobitel or even dialog in terms of coverage ( the most important aspect of a mobile service provider )and value added services.

For the LBN subscribers, the digital service is really marvelous. From yesterday I am on digital. The quality of the picture and sound is really good and more over there are lot of channels which was not mention on the channel list on the LBN website. Example B4U music, Z music. Dubai One etc

Its really worth to put digital decoder the only drawback is few channels are encrypted on the decoder but those channels are available on the analog broadcast now (it may be stopped on the coming days).

Anonymous said...


Do you get that noice in digital when you transfer chanels?

How abt the quality of local chanels?

SP said...

World Cup 2007 now on Sony Max Live Started with Extra Innings.

Sudhar said...

So far I haven't transfered any channels but once the channel scan is done, the default audio setting is LEFT, I am manually changing to STREO to get good sound (You can notice this change in CNN, Star plus and few other channels)
Local channels also really good in the digital mode, comparing to local channels from analog feed from LBN.

Sudhar said...

I think most of the premium channels are encrypted, its same in the digital service. If subscribed only it can be viewed other wise its locked. The decoder has RF out put, RF cable can be connected to TV as normal analog input from decoder. When the decoder is kept ON, the RF feed to TV tends to have few dots. If any one wants to watch from normal analog feed, it’s better to keep the decoder in stand by mode.
