BBC eyes Indian firms for 2nd online channel

BBC plans to enter into content tie-ups in India as part of its second online channel slated to be launched over the next 12 to 18 months. The new online channel will be targeted at worldwide audience, while the existing channel, BBC News Online, will cater to the UK market. BBC will be looking for content and "eye-ball driving" alliances with Indian companies for its new online channel. The company has been in talks with several Indian content companies for the purpose. Apart from news relating to the region, BBC plans to have the content available in several regional languages including Hindi, Urdu and Bengali.
