Arnab Goswami’s Republic TV received uplinking rights from the Government of India about two months back. The said permission was granted to ARG Outlier Media Pvt. Ltd on March 1 for a news channel in the English and Hindi languages. The upcoming television channel is financially backed by the likes of Asianet News Service’s Rajeev Chandrasekhar and Sameer Manchanda of DEN Networks. 

As per a list released by the Union Information & Broadcasting Ministry (MIB), a sum total of 888 private television channels command the requisite permissions to broadcast in the country. Of these, 392 channels fall under the domain of news and current affairs whereas the total of non-news and current affairs channels stands at 496.
