Is thst true..Bt peotv menu shows Set & Set Max channels are on the"A-La Carte"

Conny said...

This seems to be great.... SET & SET MAX on base package means that everyone can now enjoy the IPL at the base rental....

WOW!!! A good move by PEO TV....

Conny said...

What are the movie channels available in PEO other than the HBO pack and Star Movies?????

Tarzy said...

Anybody else applied for a Peotv connection recently?
I applied more than a week ago but didn't get the connection yet. When contacted i was told they are having some problems and it would not be given before new year.
Wonder if this will be the service after getting the connection too. Thinking about moving to dialog. Are their service better than this?
Thanks

Are Jetix TV and Disney ready for activation ?

rachitha said...

Hey does anyone knows when a channel worth 50/= is added to the live tv option and removing it thinking that it's not worth will it add to my telephone bill for watching just 1 time for EX jetix,starworld ??????????????????

rachitha said...

peo tv will be more beneficial if they can provide tstv option for HBO package & star movies cause people can watch missed movies at night

wik said...

yes it will added to your bill. you can cancel the ordered channels whenever you want. But you will be charged da particular month even though you cancel it after 1 day. As a instance if you order a channel today you will be charged to this month. If you want to cancel you have to cancel it before the next month billing starts.

@ Anon,

I gave the application form for PEO TV on 2nd April, and got my connection yesterday.... SLT called me the day before and asked whether I will be at home yesterday and they came as they said... The quality is superb.... far better than DTV.. when I handed over the for SLT said that Connection will be given within a week and it was given as they promised...

Conny said...

The PEO installation ppl told me that soon there will be Swarnavahini on PEO TV... they did not know more info about upcoming channels....

I have uploaded pics of the PEO TV STB and the Router given to the FB SLT PEO TV group.. Click the link below to check them out...

Conny said...

I called 1243 and found out that although the channels SET Max and SONY have been moved to the Base package, still each channel will cost Rs. 50 per month upon activation....

What do u people think about this????

If it is in the base package, shouldn't they be free of charge???

Sam said...

Guys how is Lakroo? Is it better than Citi Hitz or same like Citi Hitz .

wik said...

no conny u hv to call visioncom people. Slt hotline know only little abt PEOTV. I had da same experience. Call visioncom people or slt internet section.

Anon said...

Conny, where do you live?
I'm in pannipitiya, and i was told people from nugegoda teleshop would come to give the connection. I handed over the form on 30th March, and I was told there are 25 people before me in the queue.

Conny said...

@ Wik,

thanks I will call Vision com and see...

@ Anon,

I live in Kalutara... I gave the application form to the Kalutara SLT...And the installation team was from the Panadura SLT....

I think it may be due to the fact that there aren't many installation teams and a team must have to cover up a huge area...

Conny said...

@ Wik,

now is these two SOny channels r free or should we pay for them???

wik said...

@ conny 2 channels are free. Go to your iptv menu and check your orderd channels.Its clearly mention that the chargers for 2 chanels are Rs 0.

Conny said...

@ Wik..

Okis... thanks for the info... I will check it.... I think the IPL is on Set Max is it???

peo TV is the worse service i ever experienced.i have given my Application 20th last month.still haven't got the connection..so many lies from vision com...one cannot even bear.
simply no one knows anything, as per vision people it up to maharagama branch to do installation and i went there and found they haven't got anything.this is not only me there are more than 100 people in the que.
even they dont know am i eligible for the service or not(distance thing) .I've been eager to see IPL on my holidays,,, but now i feel it's bad dream.

too bad for the SLT

wik said...

@ conny
yes IPL is on SET MAX

Anon said...

Same problem here, ravana. Even I don't know whether it is possible for me to get the connection (distance problem). And these people aren't even telling me that.

When I called into ask why it so late, the response I got was "you can call and complain whoever you like, but we will not provide it". Is this the service we expect from a well respected company.

Just hope I get the connection before the IPL ends.

Conny said...

@ Wik,

Thanks...

Is the STAR VIJAY channel is also free???? When i checked it out, in the application=> Al-a-carte menu, the price appeared as Rs.0 and it is valid till 31-12-2010...

Do u know anything about this???

wik said...

Yes star vijay is free for given period of time. sooner they will charge for this channel(I'm nt sure). By da way if u dnt knw tamil its a useless channel.So far i didnt activate it...

AI said...

ya i agree with above post.. recent channels selections are not as i expected. star vijaya.. Disney two channels.. and if its not for IPL set max channels. all not worth of adding even for free. cartoon network will be better option for Disney channel and suntv for star vijaya.

as for all the channels available there only few channels i watch. i am sure no one have time to watch all the channels or there nothing to watch on other channels.

rachitha said...

i think it's better to remove BBC news & Al jazeera from TSTV because ther's nothing important to watch in those channels even live so adding star movies & HBO instaed of that would make PEO tv far better than DTV

Conny said...

YA SRI LANKA now on test transmission on PEO TV on channel on channel no 61...

The channel is Young Asia....

YA Sri Lanka is based on the culture of Sri Lanka and asian countries I suppose... Hope it would be a good channel...

wik said...

GOOD NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
TSTV enable for all IPL matches...

Conny said...

News from unconfirmed sources of SLT....

The PEO TV rental will be brought down in the coming months.. May be not immediately but by the mid 2009.

Has anybody heard such news????

gihan said...

Does anybody know how many movies are available on VoD??

I can see only a couple of documentries under "English"

a few crap movies like "mamai raja" under "Sinhala"

and a only two teledramas

am i missing something here??

CHULA said...

HI all,

I have purchased this IPTV yesterday and I was not home when they set up the thing..so i have to configure the router by my self to surf net...so i went according to their installation guide menu which is came with their router..s oi hv been successfully connected with internet but my IPTV says "network initializing" and stopped at 7%.. after few customer care calls they decided send tech guy to figure it out.. does anyone have the correct router configuration for IPTV???

By the way As per customer care agents SET & SET max was free until 2 yrs..thought it indicate 50 Rs under A-lA_cater menu u can complain it and waive it...

Also PEO TV is only for 3 KM radiant from exchange point (As per 1st may 2009)..

I would say it has the supurb quality and coolest features like Re-wind TV..wow man..Great tecno for country like us...

I would Suggest to add channels like ZEE cinema, AXN and other free to air channels (Local) but so far so gud guyz..I have DTV as well...but i would say again their quality is far far better than DTV...
