ibctamilIBC Tamil TV and IBC Tamil Radio are going to leave Eurobird 9B satellite on 31st December. The channels are going to follow the trend among Tamil media in Europe where many Tamil TV- and radio channels have left satellite transmission. Satellite transmission is very expensive and because many Tamil viewers in Europe have shifted the satellite decoder with an IPTV box from various providers, many Tamil channels have left Eurobird 9A on 9 degree East. 

Currently only following Tamil channels are available on satellite: 

Eurobird 9B (9 degree East):

  • IBC Tamil TV
  • IBC Tamil Radio
  • Athavan TV
  • Athavan Radio
  • Star Vijay TV
  • Holy God TV
  • NLM TV

Eutelsat Hotbird (13 degree East):

  • Angel TV Europe

It is expected that Athavan TV and Athavan Radio is also going to leave satellite transmission soon.
