As per our previous post titled "Sun TV off air? LBN having cash problems" Mr. Shirantha Herath - Managing Director of LBN has replied saying that the reason for the withdrawal of Sun TV was due to the piracy by illegal cable operators and losses incurred by Sun TV as a result and is not in any way related to any payment issue. Accordingly all payments by LBN have been carried out on due dates.
LBN has also expressed their disappointment with this blog for not contacting them before carrying out the post in order to obtain their views. We wish to apologise to them regarding this issue and have already conveyed our apologies directly to Mr Shirantha.
LBN has already indicated that they will make representations to Sun TV and resume transmission as soon as possible.
We have also contacted Sun TV but have not received any reply from them regarding this matter.
We wish to thank LBN for contacting us and clearing the air regarding the withdrawal of Sun TV.
