This service is good, but Movies are not good, Please add the all famous movies on this servies. I think it`s worth to pay and watch. Spacialy Sinhala,English and Hindi,Tamil also better.

@Aakaash

These movies fall under classic section. I know there should be good movies in the cart. We are looking for good contents that we can set reasonable pricing to them.

But I promise you there will be good movies in VOD, because we planed our self to cater that.

Deshal said...

PEO Dude,

What you need to realize is that you can charge us for the services you give. We are willing to pay extra to watch a good movie at our leisure. What matters is having a good selection of movies to watch. You loose a revenue opportunity while we do not benefit from taking PEO TV instead of other TV services (such as DTV, Dish TV or any other Indian DTH service).

Introducing a name “Theater” is worthless if there is nothing added new and that’s what it is now. We need more content. More channels and more VoD would get PEO market leadership in no time. Our worry is, you guys are very slow to respond.

These movies are good but I have watched them all. See, maintaining a VoD is an ongoing process. You cannot introduce few movies and relax forever until the next few movies are loaded. I guess you guys will turn words into action and take VoD to a flying start.

We are taking actions, but there are few bumps to pass.Thank you again for your valuable comments.

I apologize from you all for been out of touch in this blog.

Aakaash thanks for seeing both good and bad in PEO TV service, and pointing out where we have to change. Actually for the channels you have mentioned, we have already taken actions on them and now we are checking financial viability of them.
since our customer base is growing fast, there will be new launches in near future.

Guys I need you to write about applications that you need as a IPTV service. These are called walled garden services, in another terms Value added services.

IPTV is all about defining the video experience encompasses many dimensions, for example, standard and high-definition content; choice of compression techniques; and variety of next-generation video services such as interactivity, video on demand (VoD), network PVR (nPVR-known as Time shifted TV ), and targeted ad insertion.
