Pentamedia said that Media Dreams specialised in entertainment programming for television and the Internet and had over 500 hours of content. It also supplies content to the firm's to-be-spun-off Internet broadcasting venture, Numtv.com.

Pentamedia shares closed at a new year's low on Tuesday, losing over 4.6 per cent or Rs 13.85 to end at 285.85 on the Bombay Stock Exchange, on a day when the Sensex took a technology-led knock.
