Sri Lanka ABC Media Network To Launch Hiru TV On October
Colombo, 06th June (Asiantribune.com):
Sri Lankaâ€™ ABC media network is to launch its TV channel 'Hiru TV' in this October, the Chairman/ Managing director of Asian Broadcasting Rayynor Silva told Asian Tribune.
â€œWe are plans to launch 'Hiru TV' within next 05 months period. It will be a 24 hour channel. At the movement, I can't tell the programme structure of the televisionâ€ he said.
ABC Radio's licence was suspended by the Sri Lankan Government in late October 2007, affecting all its five radio channels.
Transmission of three networks recommenced in March 2008 under the name Hiru Media Networks. Sha FM is still off air.
Since the first Television network of Sri Lanka (Independent Television Network Limited (ITN)) was launched on the 13th of April 1979, 23 analog terrestrial television networks have come in to existence within Sri Lanka. There are also 15 Satellite networks and 04 pay per view television networks in Sri Lanka.

ABCâ€™s Hiru TV Gears To Shake Up The Television Industry
Asia Broadcasting Corporation Chairman Rayynor Silva confidently promised that the networkâ€™s first television channel Hiru TV will shake up the television industry in Sri Lanka, uplifting standards and setting the bar of expectations of the viewers of television in Sri Lanka.
Scheduled to be launched on 3 May, the television channel will be one of the largest television channels in the country and is in fact the largest investment made to set up a channel in the history of television in Sri Lanka.
â€œIf anyone wants to survive in this industry in the current context, they canâ€™t just be a radio station; they have to be an entertainment company. I believe in being with the people, the listener, being a part of the entertainment calendar,â€ he stated.
â€œWe have now decided to go into television and when we do, itâ€™s going to be a totally different approach. We will set standards in the industry. We have done it in the past; anything ABC does the expectations of the listener and the public is very high. They expect a top event or top class entertainment act. Today, we are setting up one of the largest television channels in the history of Sri Lanka.â€
Hiru FM will be based on the model adopted by the Indian TV channel Colors, a brand which according to Silva has turned the Indian television industry upside down, hitting the number one spot with India having over a 100 television channels. This theory of coming to the market with the best product, coverage, quality and programming is a huge investment and a huge risk but thatâ€™s what it takes to be different, he added.
He went on to say that ABC in undertaking this venture has acquired the best from studios to transmission. The main office will be situated in the World Trade Centre, with two offices located elsewhere and five studios from the first day itself. This will also be the first HD ready and digital ready television channel with 95 per cent coverage of the country. â€œWe have given a lot of emphasis to coverage and will be on all cable networks as well and will cover the entire island including the North and East.â€
Along with promising to have the best in coverage, Hiru TV will be set up by the team that set up Star World setting up with transmission from Germany, which Silva assured, is the best in the industry.
â€œIf you look at the entire industry, everybody who came in to this market, came in and then kept adding things. No one came up with a full product â€“ everyone came up with a half-baked product and then went on to make additions. We are going to change the entire approach of setting up companies and coming up with an entertainment brand. We are going to have fully fledged operations in terms of coverage, quality and most importantly, programming. You will see us lift not only the standard of the industry; we will set standards and set the bar of expectations of the viewer of television channels.â€
When asked as to why ABC chose to venture into television at this time, he frankly said that it is because the corporation, with all its brands having hit number one spots and a substantial listenership, is now ready for television. Planning on targeting the masses with this television channel, Silva described the personality of the channel as dynamic, youthful, with a lot of respect to elders, culture and tradition whilst embracing new technology and new standards of entertainment.
â€œIt will do well,â€ he stated with absolute confidence when questioned about having to compete with more established brands in the market. â€œThe existing channels are like brothers and sisters. You switch from one channel to another, itâ€™s the same thing. Viewers want something different. There is currently no variety given; itâ€™s about each other just putting out low-quality entertainment, about how cheap you can get and how cheaply you can get away with it.â€
He asserted that he plans on changing that attitude with Hiru TV as he did with radio. â€œIâ€™m going to change that attitude. In fact, I changed it with radio. When I started radio, people told me that it couldnâ€™t be segmented, that the market is too small to segment and the same people two or three years down the line followed me and the same thing will happen with television.â€
â€œABC is known for lifting the standards of the industry. In radio whether English, Sinhala or Tamil, we have been the most listened to channel, the innovators, the one to lift the standards and the bar of broadcasting in Sri Lanka,â€ noted Silva.
Listing out the corporationâ€™s accomplishments over the years, he pointed out that ABC started Sooriyan FM, the first ever Tamil private channel in Sri Lanka; Gold FM, the first ever English 70s radio station and number one English channel, Shaa FM, the first youth channel; Hiru FM, the most rated Sinhala channel Hiru FM as well as their other radio channel, Sun FM.
Silva added that in the industry, ABC is the biggest in radio broadcasting and entertainment and has taken the industry beyond purely radio to a more entertainment industry atmosphere.

Another stupid move by TRC. Hiru is broadcasting UHF 56 in Colombo. Same frequency is using by Derana from Kaluthara. We will definitely face signal overlaps in Panadura area. At present it is happening for Swarnawahini UHF 31 and Derana UHF37.

It marks the organisationâ€™s foray into Sri Lankan television under its flagship brand Hiru after enjoying much success in the radio industry.
Hiru TV will be the single largest investment ever made in the country to set up a television channel and will be equipped with next generation technology, including being digital ready and HD ready. Slated to be one of the largest television channels in Sri Lanka, it will launch with island-wide coverage from day one.
Planning on revolutionising the countryâ€™s television industry with this new entrant, the team behind Hiru TV has given great emphasis on coverage and has put a lot of effort towards clarity of transmission as well as quality of delivery. This will ensure quality standards as never seen before in the history of the Sri Lankan television industry and the technology used by Hiru TV is in fact on par with global giants such as Star World.
â€œHiru TV will have unmatched reach and coverage. The quality and clarity of Hiru TVâ€™s transmission is unmistakable and will give every Sri Lankan home the opportunity to enter a new era in television,â€ stated Asia Broadcasting Corporation Chairman Rayynor Silva.
According to Hiru TVâ€™s team, the channelâ€™s programming line-up has been compiled to mesmerise the countryâ€™s television viewers and will be a combination of a general television channel and a music television channel, delivering more colour, personality and attitude when compared to the other players in the market. Added emphasis has also been given to tele-dramas which are a firm favourite with Sri Lankaâ€™s television viewers and Hiru TV will therefore feature a line-up of six tele-dramas within a two-hour time-period.
The television channel will also run a series of blockbuster movies and a myriad of other programmes including reality shows.
Silva added that the channelâ€™s news segment will be launched as a separate product in order to give it added emphasis in July 2012.

Their UHF45 Colombo transmission is overlapping with UHF45 southern transmission in Panadura area. It should be worse in Kaluthara area. There is 2 seconds picture delay between Colombo signal and southern signal. I feel that we can see more drama on frequencies since Hiru is already started some frequency issues with TNL, Swarnavahini and Derana. These TRC guys are sitting on their brains.
