Ten Sports plans JV with Comcast for golf channel in India

#1
MUMBAI: Dubai-based Taj Television Ltd, where Zee Group owns 50 per cent stake, plans to set up a joint venture with Comcast Corporation for a golf channel in India.

The company has applied to the Information and Broadcasting Ministry and is awaiting clearance. It has also made an application for Ten Sports 2, the details of which are still unclear at this stage.

"Ten Sports is planning to have a joint venture with US major Comcast for a golf channel. Also in the pipeline is Ten Sports 2. The idea is to create a bouquet of sports channels," an industry source tells Indiantelevision.com.

Comcast runs the popular Golf Channel, a 24-hour golf network that was launched on 17 January 1995 in the US. Golf channel is available in more than 120 million homes worldwide through cable, satellite and wireless companies. In 2007, it embarked on its 15-year agreement as the exclusive cable television home for the PGA Tour.

"Ten Sports still needs to get the I&B approvals," the source adds.

ESPN Star Sports, which runs three channels, has applied to the I&B for a sports news channel.

Sports broadcasters are preparing to launch premium niche channels to expand their bouquet in India even as the digital pay-TV universe is growing.
