A new Tamil channel to go on air by next month!!
Aug 21, 2006

It is not an exaggeration if someone says that this is an era of television channels. There are so many channels that a remote control can get hold of and surf.

The latest entrant to this world is Makkal TV, by Makkal Tholai Thodarpu Kuzhumam which plans to go on air from 6th September.

Dish Antenna
Chief Minister M Karunanidhi would inaugurate the new channel at a function in Kamarajar arangam.

Venu Sanjeevi, Managing Director of Makkal TV, speaking at a media conference, told that Makkal TV would telecast seven news bulletins of 30 minutes each and an hour news bulletin with discussion daily. He said that their TV would not have anything to do with cinema or cinema based programmes. The accent would be on women, children and agriculture.
Makkal TV would have wholesome entertainment to the viewers. Targetting the Tamil viewers, the new channel with a definite purpose would telecast more news in addition to entertainment to the Tamil people living across the globe. This channel is the seventh Tamil satellite TV channel after Sun, Sun News, Jaya, Raj, Win, and Tamizhan to broadcast news bulletins.

When questioned about why one more Tamil channel, Mr. Venu said that their survey had specified that there is a need for a channel in Tamil without films or film based content.

He also added that initially the channel would be a free-to-air and talks are on to make available the channel in the prime band. Let us hope that this channel would keep up to their commitment.
