According to a report in The Sunday Leader dated July 15th, LBN has unveiled some of its future plans. Accordingly LBN is planning to expand their coverage to areas including Wattala and a few other areas. In addition to coverage expansion LBN is said to be testing HDTV and they hope to introduce internet services via their cable service soon. With regard to internet services we wish to state that LBN has spoken of this internet service several years ago but nothing happened so far, we hope that this time at least the service will be introduced.
In addition to all this LBN also plans to expand their channel offerings by adding channels such as Animax and a few other rumored channels are BBC World will be reintroduced, FTV (India), Raj TV, Star Cricket. There is however no indication on whether Ten Sports will be introduced and we hope that they add the channel, in addition BBC Entertainment and its kids channel should be introduced soon.
Please us updated on the latest information regarding LBN as the days progress.
