London Tamil Media Ltd. is soon going to launch the first Tamil kids channel in Europe. The channel is called IBC Malalai and its launch event is taking place on 19th January 2019 at 5 PM at Dorking Grand Hall, Reigate Road, Darking RH4 1SG in London.
Currently there is not so much news about what programmes will be shown on IBC Malalai. But it has earlier been announced that a Tamil serial produced in UK, called "Kiyaa Mayaa chuttikal", with Tamil kids is going to be shown on the upcoming kids channel. It is also expected that programmes produced from IBC's divisions in Sri Lanka, India, other European countries is going to be shown on the channel.
Rajinikanth fans, listen up. A Rajini TV channel is in the works. Yep, that's right -- although it could also be called Thalaivar TV or Superstar TV.
But don't call your cable operators yet. The Rajini Makkal Mandram, a launch vehicle for the actor's prospective political party, has begun the process of registering trademarks for these names. A letter from Rajinikanth to the registrar of trademarks has gone viral.
IBC 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.
Thuthi FM - a Tamil Christian radio-channel from Norway, has started on Lyca IPTV box in the radio section as the first Tamil Christian channel available on the box.
Thuthi FM is available on App Store for iOS devices and through Thuthi FM app on Google Play store.
