Prashant Chothani , CEO, Media World Wide and Celebrities Management Pvt Ltd, said “For Travelxp, 100 per cent content is produced by us in High Definition 1080i in English and dubbed in Hindi as well. No part of content is syndicated content, therefore exclusive and original. It has taken us over 3 years to produce this content and we continue to invest into production of travel related content both India and International. No other channel in India currently has a portfolio as diverse as Travelxp HD and focusing solely on travel”.

“We firmly believe Travelxp HD will be India's Global broadcast offering talking not only to the ethnic audiences as other Indian channels target to, but also to the Global Mainstream Audience”. Globally too, there aren't many International players in the travel channel space. If you see there are only a couple of travel channels across the globe. To put up a travel channel requires lot of investments, time and meticulous research. Today, Travelxp HD boasts of content quality which is second to none. High Definition Content production started three years back in full HD 1080i means that we definitely had plans and advanced vision to take advantage of the latest HD phenomenon. In fact, Travelxp HD is also India's first full HD channel which went on air” mentioned Chothani.
