Keeping in line with the vision of offering zero-cost entertainment Reliance Big TV has so far partnered with around 50,000 post offices in India, a country with around 130 crore citizens, in order to facilitate booking of the "free" HD high-efficiency video coding (HD HEVC) set-top boxes just by making an initial payment of Rs. 500.
Tamilan TV from India, which has been broadcasting from India for several years, launched in Europe in February this year (2018) on Eurobird 9B (9 degree East): 11881, Vertical, SR 27500 and fec 2/3. The channel is available free-to-air on Eurobird satellite along with IBC Tamil TV, Athavan TV, Holy God, NLM TV and the pay-TV channel Star Vijay TV.
It came as a surprise when Tamilan TV launched in Europe on satellite in a time where many European based Tamil radio- and TV-channels were leaving satellite transmission to only be online based channels. It was expected that the channel would only be available temporary in Europe, but now it seems to be that the channel is making a more permanent stay in Europe.
