Two more Asianet channels on Dishtv bouquet

Two more Malayalam satellite channels have come on board the Dishtv DTH platform, taking the total number of Malayalam channels on offer to eight. Youth-focused Asianet Plus and Asianet News will be made available to Dishtv subscribers of the Malayalam bouquet at no extra cost.

The other Malayalam channels on offer are Asianet, Indiavision, Jeevan TV, DD Malayalam, and Kairali TV. South Indian music channel, SS Music, is also part of the Malayalam bouquet on the Dishtv platform.

On the agreement, Sunil Khanna, CEO, Dishtv, said, “Inclusion of these two channels from Asianet strengthens the Malayalam entertainment on Dishtv for the city viewer as well as for Keralites spread across the country.”

Asianet Plus offers a blend of comedy and infotainment programmes with a variety of classical, folk, pop, Indipop, filmi, rock, ghazals, and Jazz music. The channel features shows catering specifically to the youth in genres including fashion, game shows, quiz shows, travelogues, comedy shows, talk shows, and celebrity interviews. Asianet News, as the name suggests, is a news channel.

According to a Dishtv release, the DTH entertainment service provider had emerged as the largest distribution platform in terms of number of channels carried. More and more channels/broadcasters were thus joining the platform due to its increasing penetration. Dishtv now offers a total of 113 television and 13 radio channels.
