LBN launches services in Wattala

LBN has acquired an existing pay television operator functioning in Wattala which has resulted in the expansion of LBN services to the Wattala area. The Wattala operator was operating in conjunction with Ruhuna 2001 Multivision prior to the takeover.

LBN is presently carrying out a low key advertising campaign in the form of street banners in order to publicize their takeover. At present only the analog service is available but according to information gathered by us the digital service is expected towards the end of this year. At present approximately 50 channels are available on the Wattala service.

It seems that part of LBN's expansion plan is to acquire established low key pay television operators in different areas in addition to building the infrastructure where none exists.

The Wattala office of LBN is located at Pearl Park close to the Gemunu cinema. LBN Wattala can be contacted on (011) 5333912.

400 CHANNELS FROM DISH TV BY 2008

In a bid to increase its subsciber base, DTH operator Dish TV is planning to invest about Rs 850 crore over the next three years. The company expects to touch a subscriber base of about 4.5 million in the next 18-20 months.

The company is also planning to increase the number of channels on offer. They plan to offer about 400 channels by next year. This would be both Indian and international channels. Currently, they offer about 170 channels and plan to take it up to 200 channels in the next 4-8 weeks.

The DTH player is also planning to introduce new products for the niche and premium segment. Add-ons like personal video recorders (PVR) have been received well by a particular consumer segment.

The DTH space will see several new players. Both Bharti’s DTH service and Reliance’ DTH Blue Magic are expected to roll out soon.

Each time I watch this Star Cricket channel I keep thanking LBN. This is a great cricket channel so far. The biggest reason I bought LBN connection at that time was mainly due to ESPN and STAR to watch cricket matches ( since CBN did not have those 2 channels initially)However after sometime I got fed as even ESPN and STAR use to show only Indian matches when there aren't any live cricket matches. Neo cricket is verse in this regard (as it is dedicated to Indian matches)

However Star Cricket channel is totally different to any of the above (so far :(). They show cricket matches of all countries and even county cricket. Great cricket heroes of all countries. Yesterday they showed "Matara Mauler" rampaging the New Zealanders in NZ.

Unfortunately, LBN does not have this channel in analog mode and even if somebody wishes to do so will have to wait for some time as LBN is facing a shortage of digital boxes presently. Some of my freinds said that everytime u call LBN cc they say they are expecting a shipment ( which has been the case for the last two months or so)

@ neela


The criticism is the key word in the world today, people don’t blame some one because you dint like that person ( apart from politicians), I appreciate the fact what admin have done in the past is correct depend on the problems at that time. Especially the company never communicates to the world regarding the issues related to their legal matters.


Now LBN covers Nuwara eliya & beruwala.

LBN Rocks said...
