LBN retransmitting channels via Indian DTH

According to reports reaching us LBN Cable TV is now retransmiting many channels off Indian DTH providers. This has resulted in many subscribers loosing channels during rain owing to rain fade affecting the channels being retransmitted off DTH providers.

In addition we are being told that Asian feeds of some channels are being replaced by Indian feed counterparts.

In the case of History Channel it should be noted that over time it was rebranded to Fox Traveller and then another History Channel was launched which we believe was not added to LBN as yet.

We hope LBN stops retransmitting off Indian DTH and reverts back to their previous method of retransmitting off the original feeds.

So, now LBN replaced many Asian feed channels with Indian feed channels. These are with lot of advertisement and charges are very less for LBN.

These are cheap channels. Why they don't reduce the rental and pass the benefit to the customers?

Now no Cinemax channel too.
