IndiaVision plans to launch separate channel for Gulf viewers

.

Indiavision, the Malayalam TV channel, is firming up major Gulf operations. The channel is planning a separate channel for the Gulf. The channel would tieup with the information ministry of Bahrain for taking a few hours slot in Channel 55. It would be on the UHF band and would cater to the viewers of Bahrain, Qatar and Saudi Arabia. In Ajaman, the channel was trying for a few hours in Channel 4 and beam programmes for Muscat and the remaining countries in West Asia.

The channel had already booked for the APR1 transponder. There would be the two-way, studio-floor link, communication channel. The channel is also planning a loop from London after which programmes could be viewed all over the world. The channel would start test beaming by April. There would also be an English news programme aimed at the second-generation Malayalees.
