The UK-based London Tamil Media Ltd., has opened a new studio for IBC Tamil and CineUlagam.com in Chennai in India. Already a production devision called Muthtthamil Maalai produced shows for IBC Tamil TV, but recently IBC Tamil got licence from Ministry of Information and Broadcasting (MIP) in India to operate the channel in India. The channel has not launched yet in India, but if they decide to launch as granted in non-news category, IBC Tamil TV will be the first Tamil TV channel from Europe, which is going to telecast in India.
Earlier we have only seen India-based Tamil channels like Sun TV, Star Vijay etc. expanding to Europe, and other parts of the world while overseas Tamil channels from e.g. Canada and Europe only had production studios in India.
