CBN SAT Sri Lanka First DTH.

For more than 40 years, analog TV has been in use in Sri Lanka. But not everyone can benefit from this because of Sri Lanka’s terrain. A company by the name of “Communiq Broadband Networks (CBN)” initiated a project to offer a satellite TV service named “CBN SAT” as a result of this problem.

It is Sri Lanka’s first digital television service. The Dialog Axiata Company then purchased that business for 523.8 Million LKR. The satellite television sector in Sri Lanka is now at a pivotal point. They began working on a satellite TV initiative named Dialog TV.

Dialog has a lot of resources because it is a multinational corporation. Their marketing is fairly effective. After 3 to 5 years, everyone in Sri Lanka is aware of dialog television. After some time, the well-known Sri Lankan telecom company Sri Lanka Telecom launched a cable TV project using ADSL AND fiber.

The Dialog TV is a good thing. because the television channels are of very high quality. However, the drawback of these two digital TV services is the high cost of installation and the high cost of monthly leases. For instance, Dialog TV requires a minimum monthly payment of 490 LKR.
