Network18 to expand its business offerings

As per media reports, Network18 is gearing up to further fortify its business offerings. The group will be launching a Gujarati business news channel, named CNBC Bazaar. The group already runs two business news channels – CNBC-TV18 in English and CNBC-Awaaz in Hindi, apart from English general news channel in CNN-IBN.

Along with the Gujarati business channel, Network18 also plans to soon launch what is being touted as India’s first online pink paper, called Firstbiz.com. The group already runs the news and analysis website Firstpost.com.

Meanwhile, plans are also afoot to launch MTV Indies with 100 per cent local content by February 2014. Rishtey, the group’s second GEC after Colors, is also set for a full-fledged launch. As is known, Rishtey was launched as a free-to-air channel catering to the Indian Diaspora in the UK, Ireland and the Netherlands in 2012. The channel currently re-runs programmes shown on Colors. Rishtey started test runs in India with the launch on DD Direct+ in December 2013 and is now also available on Airtel Digital TV.
