MSM is set to expand its channel bouquet with the addition of a new 24-hour music channel. The proposed channel is likely be launched by mid-December. Meanwhile, planners have mixed reviews on the launch of a new music channel and how it will affect the Hindi music genre.
Bringing in the laughs, it seems, is paying rich dividends to channels like SAB TV and Mastiii. SAB has been outdoing channels like Imagine and STAR One. On the other hand, Mastiii’s mix of music served up with some comedy is also working. The question, however, is has there been enough experimentation in the comedy genre or is there still untapped potential here?
Keeping up with its initial promise, Mastiii, the music and entertainment channel from Sri Adhikari Brothers, has managed to top this genre for six consecutive weeks on the back of its mix of Hindi music and comedy. Though initially ad-free, the channel has now signed up a host of advertisers.
