    On the MyT TV channel package – it seems strange to me that you have to pay for “free” channels that are broadcasted worldwide with no encryption. I guess if you want to pay for a good selection of channels then you would go for something like Canalsat where you would have most of those “free” channels anyway.

    As for the Mauritian audio-visuel scene, I hope that the MBC will offer more digital channels and that possibly they will offer good pay channels and interactive digital TV. On the latter maybe a commercial broadcaster will be allowed to take up the challenge in the future.

    We are still waiting, with great expectations, the development of internet connections, optical fibre network inland, faster speeds.

  • Anyone know the purpose of MBC’s new headquarter at Reduit? 😛

  • @Morinn : Euh… for more local dancing n singing competitions? 🙂

    @Avish : I think its already on newspaper (if its the Pepsi Sega Hungama issue)

    @Tushal : its 13million i think.

    @Mike : I wonder if adding more useless digital channels will bring any change…

    I like Gulli – The cartoons are nice.
    Je dirais que France 2 n’est pas mauvais.
    I don’t know if private television will work well at launch stage.
    I won’t come to conclusions based on a newspaper article.
    The MyT package needs to be revamped if it wants to attract more.
    Polls show that people like the news of private radios.

    Hey really we getting these channels 3 for nly 3 months???
    I thought we getting it all always as my.t has not reduced its prices n thus giving us a better package at the same price!!! Btw will it b optional, that is can we choose to continue pay z sme price n nt having z channels?? or will it b like z other time where we were forced to upgrade ur speed???

  • @Nabila:
    Hi, from what I understood, you can opt not to have the extra channels and pay only Rs750+VAT.
    Thanks for ur visit!

    Assuming they are choice/premium satellite channels with good content, I would be prepared to pay for them. At the moment the MBC is in a frame of mind that ALL it’s viewers want sports and all their energy goes into negotiations for rebroadcast of football matches. Let’s face it the movie channel has been disappointing in its selection.

  • @Mike : True…
    However, the movie channel do have a few nice movies (if you haven’t watched them some days earlier on the same channel of course)

  • My.T rocks with the new channels and could be compared to Canal Sat or Parabole . I really like watching those old serials and animated movies but My. T is not available at Fond du Sac. Anyone feeling to watch old movies and shows can go to, and 😛 Use a Proxy In Case It’s Not Allowed.

  • I too could not watch any of the new channels on myt for that 3 months trial.
    As for the price u asked yashvin: canal+ only will cost around 500rs (vat incl.), while canal satellite will depend on the packages you will select, in fact canal+ forms part of canal satellite’s every package, but the one mentioned above is if u take ‘canal+ le bouquet’ option i fink, forgot a little here 🙂 , u can get more info by calling 6021818.
    As for mbc, it still monopolizes the tv sector, but is still crap, just ask some english football fans here who dont have canalsat or parabol and they will tell u… As for the movies..burk!!
    The private tv stations would have done better if they had cut their prices to allow more ppl to get access to their services…

    PS.Anyone knows forums or websites where i can download tiny toons comics full episodes?

  • @ Yashvin

    Canal+ and canal satellite are from the same company, you get canal+,canal+ sport, canal+ cinema, canal+ family with any package you take from canalsat maurice 🙂

    Hey I don’t think that private TV will be present in mauritian life may be in 2 or 3 years or may more. but i think that some people should think about web tv, i.e people who has an internet access at home can watch a sort of tv on it with local production of course. i think that no special permit is required for this , CORRECT ME IF AM WRONG.

  • Adithya

    Have you any idea whether there will be any changes in the MY.T channels???

  • @Aditya : hmm, haven’t heard anything till now, except that by now, the additional channels (Boomerang etc) have been removed for those who do not wish to pay.

    btw, thanks for ur first comment here.
