LBN one year since that fateful day......

On 15th June 2007, LBN celebrated the first year anniversary of being sealed by the authorities over what was termed as licensing issues. This incident happened a few days after they launched their digital service. During the period of over 6 months that company was sealed the subscribers, employees and management were affected adversely. The company commenced transmissions again from January 2007 and have become the first pay television network in Sri Lanka to carry channels such as HBO Hits and HBO Family. At moment they are looking at transmitting the Discovery Channel, Animal Planet and Discovery Travel and Living over their network.

The period between June 2006 to January 2007 proved to be very testing for the company and they were able to resume transmissions under the original management headed by Mr. Shirantha Herath. A very notable feature during this time were the several legal battles that were being fought by LBN.

We believe that the time period is something that LBN Customers, Employees and Management will not forget. We wish LBN all the best as they strive and give their best to improve their services.

We hope that LBN subscribers will make more use of this blog in order to share their views about the service provided by LBN.

No one will forget that unfortunate dark incident which leads to the shutdown of the LBN services for a period of over 6 months. Now LBN has moved long way with the introduction of many new channels including NEO, NEO+, HBO Hits and HBO Family.

Now yet another mile stone is reached with the addition of DISCOVERY, ANIMAL PLANET AND DISCOVERY TRAVEL AND LIVING on the Digital Lineup. Analog subscribers will be receiving the Discovery channel.

LBN has already launched the Sri Lankas first Buddhist channel Dharmavahini every day from 7A.M. to 4P.M

If any of you want to receive the new additional channels (Discovery, Animal Planet & Travel and Living)
Go to Menu and press the auto channel search...it will be there :(


DTV too will soon introduce some new channels with the new transponder. It is already being tested.LBN has most of those other than ABC ( which is a very good rugby channel)

I am a crazy cricket fan. Waiting to see who is giving STAR Cricket Channel.
