The take-over was not expected and has left London Tamil Media Ltd., which is operating IBC channels (IBC Tamil TV, IBC Isai, IBC Pagadi, IBC Bakthi, and IBC Tamil Radio) without any IPTV platform for distribution of their channels. IBC Tamil was promoting Lebara Play and was a big player in getting subscribers to the IPTV service. When Lebara was sold to the Swiss company, Palmarium, it was not clear what would happen to Lebara Play. But IBC Tamil continued their co-operation with Lebara Play and was expecting to launch more channels through Lebara Play.
