ITV network will be launching 7 new channels(post updated with channels logo)
#1
MUMBAI: Kartikeya Sharma-promoted
iTV Network, which owns and operates
seven news channels including NewsX
in English and India News in Hindi, is
all set to embark on a big-bang
expansion drive. This will see the
news network venturing into regional
and factual entertainment, besides
adding to the existing fleet of news
channels.
Seven new launches are being planned,
including three news channels (one in
HD), two regional entertainment
channels, and two factual
entertainment channels (one in UHD).
The network is all set to add two
regional channels to its bouquet, by
launching a Bengali news channel and
one for the North East region. The
two news channels are likely to be
named ITV Bangla and ITV NE.
The main brand of the Hindi and
regional news network is India News.
The regional news bouquet includes
India News Haryana, India News Uttar
Pradesh, India News Rajasthan and
India News Madhya Pradesh.
The Bangla news channel will address
the lucrative and important Bengali-
speaking market, which is currently
ruled by ABP News Network’s ABP
Ananda, ETV News Network’s ETV
News Bangla and Zee Media’s 24
Ghanta.
ITV NE will target the strategically
important region of North East
covering the states of Assam,
Meghalaya, Arunachal Pradesh,
Manipur, Mizoram, Nagaland and
Sikkim. It is pertinent to note that
Focus News Network was the only
leading TV network to have a news
channel dedicated to North East.
However, the network has put
curtains down on that channel.
Almost three years after acquiring
NewsX from the late Jehangir Pocha
and Nai Duniya’s Vinay Chhajlani, the
network is all set to launch NewsX in
HD, which will be a first-of-its-kind
initiative for Indian news channels.
Planned as an ad-free news channel,
NewsX HD will deliver a multi-screen
experience on a single screen to the
multitasking high-profile urban
viewers of India.
NewsX HD will aim to offer viewers
non-stop ad-free news content,
including what is happening on social
media like Twitter, Facebook,
YouTube, Pinterest and Instagram,
while getting additional information
feeds like weather and stock indices
all in a seamless experience on one
screen.
iTV Network is all set to enter the
regional general entertainment
space. It plans to launch an
Assamese-language general
entertainment channel. The name of
the channel is likely to be ITV Hi Life.
The Haryanvi entertainment channel
is likely to be named ITV AND.
Currently, there is no dedicated
entertainment channel for these two
markets. Focus News Network had a
dedicated GEC for Assam called Focus
Hi Fi.
In one of the most ambitious projects
of the network, the company is
planning to launch India’s first 4K
channel in October. It will be called
Insight 4K.
Insight 4K will be complemented by an
HD channel called Insight HD, which
will have the same content as Insight
4K, albeit in HD.
Insight claims to have the world’s
largest UHD content library comprising
200 hours of original and 200 hours of
acquired content. It promises to
provide a more entertaining viewing
experience with dynamic TV formats.
iTV Network is a fast growing news
network, with two national news
channels, four regional news
channels, two newspapers, and
various digital assets. It employs
more than 2025 people across 25
bureaus/offices and has more than
106 live video sources. iTV Network
has a cumulative reach of more than
100 million viewers and readers on a
regular basis.
In March, the network had unveiled a
new brand identity. It had also made
appointments to its senior
management team including Dilip
Venkatraman as group COO – strategy
and business development, Sanjay Dua
as group chief revenue officer and
CEO NewsX, and Savvy Dilip as group
CMO. All three were previously
associated with TV18.
Kartikeya Sharma, in partnership with
Sporty Solutionz’s Ashish Chadha, had
recently diversified into sports
business with the launch of Pro
Wrestling League. Sharma has floated
a new company Pro Sportify to
organise the league.
