Hi,

GTV SPV in India on Intelsat 17 and GTV on Eutelsat Hotbird in Europe & Middle East are NOT the same. Different companies are running these channels.

GTV in Europe is Global Tamil Vision. It is run by Eelam Tamils, and you can also watch this channel in Australia on Optus satellite (152 degree East).

The history behind this channel is:

A popular Eelam-TV channel, called TTN Tamil Ozhi, was telecasting from Paris, France in Europe on Eutelsat Hotbird since 2001. Due to pressure from Sri Lankan Government, who wanted to close down all pro-Eelam TV channels, France decided to close down this station in 2007 because they believed it was run by LTTE Tamil Tigers.

Pro-Eelam people in Europe decided to get another Tamil TV to Europe, so they managed to get Tharisanam TV, which was telecasting in Australia to telecast to Europe too. So Tharisanam TV started test transmission in Europe with telecasting the live feed of Makkal TV from India, and then Makkal TV live feed was replaced by Tharisanam TV programmes.

But Sri Lankan Government managed to pressure Tharisanam TV to cease broadcasting, so the channel was closed down. But it emerged later as Thendral TV on Hotbird satellite, and later it was renamed GTV (Global Tamil Vision) and is now telecasting from studios in London. The channel is free-to-air in Europe & Middle East, and pay-TV in Australia.

Many presenters, who have worked for Deepam TV Europe, Vectone Tamil TV, TTN Tamil Ozhi etc., are working for GTV now.

GTV is the voice of Eelam Tamils in Europe & Australia. It has nothing to do with GTV SPV in India.

Here you can see the channel presentation of Tharisanam TV:
