Lanka Vision is a successful broadcasting service, founded by Yasiru Multimedia Pty Ltd, Sydney, Australia. It was initially broadcasting via satellite on UBI World TV platform, the largest multilingual and multicultural satellite platform in the world. Since its inception in 2004, Lanka Vision provided valuable cultural link with Sri Lanka for Sri Lankan expatriates in Australia and New Zealand.
The increasing penetration of high bandwidth Internet and recent advances in Information Technology driving convergence in the media and communications industries, created new delivery methods and consumer behavior. In order to move along with this new trend, in 2012, Lanka Vision adopted IPTV technology as its delivery method and launched the first Sri Lankan high definition end to end digital IPTV service to the viewers around the world. Today Lanka Vision is the only platform to provide end to end digital broadcasting service for Sri Lankan channels and providing the service with its distribution partner iON.

The sublime words of the Buddha, generate peace of mind and tranquility and the content focuses on the philosophical aspects of the Dhamma.
