MUMBAI: The ministry of information and broadcasting (MIB) has granted 11 new TV channel licences to three broadcasters on 25th March. Viacom18 has received nine TV channel licences while Star India and Hare Krsna Content Broadcast have received one licence each.

All the 11 licences are in the non-news category for uplinking/downlinking.

Viacom18 has received the licences under the names BDM, Connected, Eco-Lution, Hawa Mahal, IMIX, My Tube, Pick-A-Trick, Story City, and Treble. Star India has received a licence under the name Star Gold 2 HD while Hare Krsna Content Broadcast has received the licence to launch Hare Krsna.

Broadcasters generally apply for licences under a dummy name. Depending upon the business plans, the licences are renamed through a name change application to the MIB.

Viacom18 could use the licences to deepen its presence in existing markets. The regional markets are a key focus area for the media conglomerate.

Recently, news broadcaster ABP News Network had got four new TV channel licences from the MIB in February. Apart from ABP News Network, the ministry had also granted another new TV channel licence under the name Manoranjan Grand to Creative Channel Advertising and Marketing.

ABP News Network had received the uplinking and downlinking licences under the names ABP Andhra, ABP Ganga, ABP Kannada, and ABP Tamil. One of the licences could be used to launch an Uttar Pradesh centric news channel that the company is planning to launch.

Prio to that the ministry had granted six new licences under the non-news category. G-Next Media had obtained the approval for three channels namely PTC Music, PTC Punjabi Gold and PTC Simran. Skystar Entertainment, which owns and operates Skystar Movies, has received two new licences Skystar Bangla and Skystar Telugu.

ZEE Entertainment Enterprises Limited (ZEEL) had received approval for licence under the name Zee Classic. Incidentally, ZEEL had shutdown Zee Classic last year and launched Zee Bollywood in its place.
