The ABP News Network appears set to launch ABP Ganga, a 24-hour Hindi news channel for Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand, on 15 April.
In February, the ABP News Network had received four new TV channel licenses from the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting (MIB) in February under the names ABP Andhra, ABP Ganga, ABP Kannada, and ABP Tamil.
The local IPTV Tamil channel from Swiss, Wathanam TV, has now started on Lyca TV IPTV box and through the Indian IPTV service, Inygo. The channel is also available through Saalai TV and Chitram TV. It is possible to watch the channel for free through Wathanam TV website: www.wathanamtv.com and through Inygo IPTV app on Google Play.
Wathanam TV is currently telecasting cinema songs, movies and local stage shows and cultural programmes. The channel is planning to offer more kind of programmes in the near future.
IBC Tamil Radio was launched in June 1997 and was the 2nd 24 H Tamil radio-station broadcasting on satellite in Europe. Since the launch it was a respected Tamil media with broadcasting focus on the freedom struggle of Eelam Tamils in Sri Lanka.
It was regarded as a "national radio of Eelam Tamils" for diaspora Tamils. Many bounds were made - especially with the take over of TRT Tamil TV (Tamil Radio & Television) from Paris. For a time a media alliance with IBC Tamil Radio, TTN Tamil TV and TRT Tamil Oli (later ABC Tamil Oli) existed.
Tamil.de from Germany has bought the website domain of Tharakai TV (www.tharakai.tv) and currently visitors of the domain are redeirected to Tamil.de website's page for Santhora TV and Tamil Business TV.
Tharakai TV was a Tamil TV-channel from Canada and was launched in 2016 and the aim of the channel was to stand above the crowd of IP TV’s in Tamil households and programming in line with international best practices. For instance, unlike other channels, Tharakai TV was concerned about artists’ promotion. This was their way of contributing to the growth of the Tamil Independent industry. Respect for the hard work artistes put into their music is something conventional media is known for, and Tharakai TV operated in line with this perspective.
