New Ku-band Telugu TV channel launched

Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu on Monday launched a Telugu channel on state-of-the art KU band-based satellite communication network on the occasion of Ugadi, Telugu New Year. As part of pilot transmission, the channel christened Manna TV would commence telecasting long distance education programmes of Dr BR Ambedkar Open University and University Grants Commission (UGC) respectively for the benefit of students. It would also provide information about various state government departments and help farmers with prompt and timely update on weather and seasonal conditions.

ISRO has readily agreed to Andhra government's request for providing the KU band linkage. Apart from literary and informative programmes, the channel would also focus on beaming other entertainment. The KU band connected channel - which now caters to the needs of students belonging to 46 junior colleges, 12 degree colleges, 56 high schools and 94 government departments - would be expanded to more university colleges and schools from next academic year.
