SLT PEO TV INTRODUCES LIFE TV


Sri Lanka Telecom Peo TV reached another milestone yesterday when it announced the launch of its latest and exclusive local channel - Life TV.

The channel will begin test transmissions in the latter half of this month and hopes to begin full pledged operations by the end of next month, kicking off with the presidential election coverage. Life TV will be the first and exclusive local channel to be aired in the IPTV network.

Addressing the conference, Life TV CEO Kalum Palitha Maheerathne defined the station thus: "A channel that would portray life on the planet we live in which is shaped by civilisation and moulded by cultures."

He revealed that the station would bring together and enhance relationships between villages and towns; locally and internationally.

The virtual channel will be available only through the Peo TV network. The channel is expected to portray Sri Lankan lifestyles which would include music, culture and education related programmes.

SLT VisionCom CEO Thusha Weerasooriya commented: "We are on the road to bringing tuition class right to your homes."

He stressed on the importance of preserving national heritage, which he said was the motive of Life TV. Weerasooriya believed that "through other international channels that are being aired we hope to promote the local channels, which need the publicity."

The channel will include famous TV personalities such as Kosala Makuloluwa(Director Program), Piyadasa Rathnesinghe (Consultant), Lasantha Warusavithana (Creative director), Sanjay Withanage, Kaya Dias, Ravindra Munasinghe and so on.

Though SLT ADSL mostly operates in Colombo and greater Colombo areas, it also reaches areas such as Matara, Chilaw, Kandy and Anuradhpura. Weerasooriya stated that in the future they hoped to take Peo TV along with ADSL to the north and east when the infrastructure is developed.

He further added that operations could not be carried out as a result of the fibre network not being installed in the respective areas as yet.

SLT Peo TV is the ultimate IP TV gateway and provider of a total entertainment solution. More than 50 live channels, time-shift TV, channel memorising, live TV multi-audio and video on are a few features available from Peo TV.

The Champions League Twenty20 (CLT20) tournament brings together domestic leagues from seven nations as they clash for the top spot in Twenty20 cricket this October in India. The overall prize money the competition offers is a staggering USD six million dollars. The winner will take home USD 2.5 million dollars - the total prize money for the ICC World T20 held in England earlier this year.

The tournament boasts of some of the finest talent in world cricket like Adam Gilchrist, Virender Sehwag, Brendon McCullum, Dwayne Bravo and Ajantha Mendis. It will feature 12 teams as opposed to the 8 pencilled in originally making it a more inclusive and competitive event.

The number of teams from any one country is decided of adequate representation of the leading driver nations. So in this year’s competition, we have three teams from India; two each from Australia, South Africa and England; and one each from New Zealand, Sri Lanka and West Indies.

TEAMS:

* Royal Challengers
* Deccan Chargers
* Delhi Daredevils
* Victorian Bushrangers

* Cape Cobras

India will host the inaugural edition of CLT20. Delhi, Hyderabad and Bangalore - the home venues of the IPL teams competing this season - will host matches. However, the venue for subsequent editions of the competition will be decided each year.

The teams will be divided into four groups of three each and will initially play each other on a league basis. The top two teams from each group will qualify for the second stage and four teams from the second stage will make it to the semi finals. A total of 23 matches will be played over a 16-day period in the inaugural edition of CLT20.

This is the first time ever that domestic leagues from different nations will lock horns in a prestigious competition. CLT20 can be viewed as the World Cup of club cricket. It is a platform for domestic/club teams to perform at the highest level, preparing players for the next step - representing, or performing even better for, their countries.

Sri lanka has played many games in the season and they have a good grip of the game.Led by a blazing century from Tillakaratne Dilshan and a brace of cameos, the world's No. 5 team started their Champions Trophy campaign in fine style by beating the top-ranked side.Sri Lanka carried the energy from their powerful batting display into the field and Ajantha Mendis, unlike the home side's spinners, extracted bounce and turn under lights.Adapting to early-season South African conditions superbly, Sri Lanka have taken the lead in showing that Asian teams are a force to be reckoned with in this tournament.

Internet access through TV soon - CEO, SLT Visioncom

A day will come soon when internet browsing will be done through the TV. While Sri Lanka has less than half a million internet/computer users in the country, there are over three-and-a-half million TV sets. Hence, if we can give the majority of citizens' internet access through the TV, I believe it will be a great opportunity and service to the people, said Chief Executive Officer SLT Visioncom (Pvt) Ltd., T. P. Weerasooriya.

Q: What kind of revolution PEO TV could make on the local media industry?


T.P. Weerasooriya

A: PEO TV, which is for Personalized Entertainment Option, using IPTV technology has already made the paradignm shift, where for the first time in Sri Lanka the subscribers can "Rewind Live TV" and watch what one has missed. The revolution of the IPTV lies in the fact that the future is going to be promising whilst being simple, fast and more interactive.

Subscribers in Sri Lanka today do not want more channels. With everyone's busy schedules the consumer demands the empowerment where they desire to control the programming. PEO TV has enabled to deliver the "Choice" and "Control" to the user, than having to accept only what is available at a given time.

PEO TV with the IPTV technology is a breakthrough that has made life more comfortable. We can look forward to receiving SMS, answering telephone calls, paying utility bills, personal banking, video calls, internet access and ordering your favourite Pizza via your television through PEO TV.

Q: IPTV was launched recently in Sri Lanka. What is the response from the public for this new television experience?

A: IPTV technology is a new concept to the Sri Lankan community and it is much more than just watching television. The Rewind, Play and Pause options itself have created an unmatched television experience among our customers.

The response from the public has been extremely good. People have realized that PEO TV offers a product that is unmatched by any PAY TV service provider in Sri Lanka. The concept of "watch what you want when you want" holds true for entertainment programs, but more so for educational programs. You get your entertainment and your favourite program any time of the day as you desire at your finger-tips.

Q: Any plans to introduce IPTV for the rural community?

A: This is where we find the real need. Rural communities seldom get the opportunity of enjoying an enriched television experience and we are always committed towards delivering our best service to all communities across the country. While international channels entertainment programs are needed we would lay emphasis on the local content in terms of enhancing Sri Lanka's culture, heritage, culinary delights and lifestyle.

With PEO TV, using IPTV technology Distance Education we can truly deliver interactive e-education services at a moderate price. Together, with features such as TSTV, On-demand, a student can study at his or her own pace and at the time convenient to them.

Q: What are your plans for the North East areas?

A: With recent developments, the North East has become commercially viable for business propositions. We are planning to enter these markets by extending our services with the intention of nurturing them in many facets such as education, entertainment and more value additions.

Currently SLT, our parent company is in the process of enhancing its Broadband network to cater to subscribers in the deep South, East and North. Together with other services we will take PEO TV to these regions in the not too distant future.

Q: With the IPTV what are the other services that SLT hopes to introduce in the near future ?

A: IPTV Technology is a hybrid version of television and personal computer. Hence the possibilities are unlimited. A day will come soon when internet browsing will be done through the TV. We have less than half a million internet/computer users in Sri Lanka and there are over three and a half million TV sets. If we can give the majority of citizens' internet access through the TV, I believe it will be a great opportunity and service to the people.

Q: Why did you choose this field as your career?

A: Firstly, technology and engineering are my forte because since my school days I have been very good at mathematics. Hence, natural progression was to study engineering. Thereafter, working overseas and in companies such as Philips, Motorola and Cisco Systems, who are giants in the world of telecommunication and IT has given me much experience in business acumen and to lead teams to be efficient and productive. Having the opportunity to serve and work in Sri Lanka has been great.

It is always enjoyable to engage in a role which allows you to enrich the human's growth needs such as infotainment. Providing it in a creative manner with the right intention makes it more motivating. The infotainment industry has always been challenging and turbulent. The industry creates the opportunity for me to test my own strengths every day in terms of being thoughtful and pragmatic.

Q: As the CEO of the company what are the challenges you face?

A: Challenges have been tough, demanding and great. What we have achieved in terms of a feature rich service delivery, say within a short period of eight months has been remarkable. Naturally the other challenges created by the socio-economic environment, especially, being in this industry, making proactive decisions has always been a challenge and customer demands make it more eventful to deliver the best to the end user.

Q: What is your advice to young people who try to climb the corporate ladder?

A: My sporting background has given me immense strength to tackle issues in professional and corporate life. It is always better to start with this in mind and set the objectives and principles to follow. Exert your efforts in the same direction while unifying the energy of your team in the same direction, constantly.

Thereafter, focus on your engagement levels, every day. These basics can take you to higher levels. As my beloved school Trinity Collage motto implies Respice Finem - Look to the End, and be yourself.

Q: How do you spend your leisure?

A: I spend my leisure with the family, watch television most of the time and the occasional rugby game to keep myself fit.

The TSTV feature provides flexibility for subscriber to watch TV at any time. The principle of TSTV is that the IPTV system has ability to store live TV program in the media server at Headend, similar to personal PVR.

Sudoku on PEO TV

Play Sudoku in PEO TV Games..There are more games in PEO TV...subscribe and play..

  • Sudoko teaches many of journalism's best lessons: accuracy, attention to detail, the importance of looking for patterns and the fact things are not always what they appear to be.
  • Things are not always what they appear to be. Sudoku appears to be about numbers. It's not. There is no math in Sudoko.
  • Then there's accuracy. If one number is wrong, the whole puzzle is wrong. That's a terrific lesson in accuracy. People can work for several hours (as I did last night) only to realize they made a mistake some place in the puzzle. It's all over.
  • Paying attention to detail is another lesson. Sudoku has vertical and horizontal columns and 9 small squares. When placing a number in a bottom row, you have to check to insure that number appears no other place in that square or at the top of that column.
