Well at least for now they seem to be going as usual expect for the fact that this company is having a series of management and financial problems. In addition to a court case with the TRC regarding the allocation of frequencies (please refer post below) and the notice of withdrawal of license if they did not pay the due amount to the Southern Development Authority.
In 2007 we hope that Comet Cable the pioneer cable television company will be able to update their technology to digital since they will have massive competition from pay television companies such as CBNsat under Dialog Telekom and also SLT's pay television service in the next year. If the present management lack the funds to do it then they should sell the company to another and let Comet Cable improve.
