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.
Zee Entertainment Enterprises Limited (ZEEL) is set to launch its Tamil Movies channel around June 2019.
The Upcoming Channel will be launched in Standard Definition and High Definition and it is branded as Zee Thirai and Zee Thirai HD respectively. ZEEL pans to exploit the Tamil Movie Library of its GEC Zee Tamil in addition to dubbed movies from other Indian languages.
From March 10, Vijay Super will don a new look with the tagline Dhool Cinema Dhinam Dhinam. It will be a full-fledged movie channel and will telecast six titles every day.
With the new TV ecosystem in place, broadcasters are focusing on upping the standing of its regional and niche channels.
