SLRC offi cially commenced its terrestrial transmission on 14, February 1982. At the beginning SLRC had only one channel which covered almost 95% of the island area wise. The second channel ‘EYE’ dedicated for education, youth and entertainment commenced its transmission in 1999 which covers almost 70% of the Island. The coverage was later expanded to match with the fi rst channel gradually.


At present SLRC is operating four channels namely ‘Rupavahini’, EYE, Nethra and NTV. Both EYE & Nethra channels are operating on time sharing basis on the same transmission network. The Rupavahini & Nethra channels are dedicated for Sinhahla and Tamil speaking population respectively while the youngest channel NTV is dedicated for English programmes with the coverage confi ned to Colombo at present.


In April 2012, SLRC offi cially commences the Digital TV transmission. The Sri Lankan government has announced that DVB-T2 had been chosen for the digital terrestrial TV transmission standard for Sri Lanka.


To implement the digital transmission, SLRC is making all necessary arrangements to develop its technical staff by organizing training programs in collaboration with AIBD, ABU and other relevant media institutions.
