CSN to provide coverage of Sri Lanka – Pakistan SeriesOctober 22, 2011, 8:11 pm
The Carlton Sports Network (CSN), Sri Lanka’s premiere sports entertainment channel will be exclusively broadcasting all the action of the current cricket series between Sri Lanka and Pakistan comprising three Tests, five ODIs and a T-20 International.
Without the comfort of playing on either of their respective home surfaces, this clash of Asian cricketing giants promises much excitement and exhilaration with some of the best players in the game going head to head.
With the entry of CSN into the television broadcasting industry of Sri Lanka, sports fans are no longer limited to just replays or highlights of matches in the evening news. Before CSN the only way one could gain access to international leagues, games and tournaments that weren’t related to Sri Lankan cricket was through paying for cable or satellite channels. Carlton provides the Sri Lankan public island-wide, with the opportunity of free international sports entertainment. CSN is also the only channel in the country which provides a hotline (0718513317) for assistance to viewers.
CSN recently concluded coverage of the complete India tour of England in September, the action packed excitement dripping ‘T20 Champions League 2011’ and before that, the Rugby Tri-Nations Tournament in South Africa, which was a first for the many rugby lovers in Sri Lanka relying on local channels. Sport by sport, tournament by tournament, game by game, CSN continues to expand and consolidate its position as the leader in sports entertainment in Sri Lanka.
