    The Regulatory commission makes it so hard for em to obtain a licence. So much beauracracy and red tape involved. So I guess they chose to do what they wanted to do anyway. Too bad they got caught.

    I bet they were telecasting Indian tamil movies than anything else, Now that the Tiger issue is gone, doesn't our govt say so? There is a 24 hr Tamil channel and they are upto mischief in the weee hours doing a lil pro ltte advertisments and events taking place in other countries like meetings and get togethers.

    in up country there were few elements who had sympathy towards LTTE,but 99% They are Indian rather than Jaffna, when India beat Sri Lanka in Cricket they enjoy it ,that is the mentality of them,

    looks like local cable tv operation, govt should consider giving free / lower cost cable tv licence for small operators
