  Tata Sky Discontinues its SD Set Top Box
Posted by: nairrk - 02-08-2020, 08:58 AM - Forum: Tata Sky - No Replies

Tata Sky has discontinued the Standard Definition or SD Set-Top Box for new connections. Tata Sky has removed the SD Set-Top Box option which brings down the number count to four. After the recent price cut on HD Set-Top Box, Tata Sky’s SD and HD Boxes were available at the same price of Rs 1,399. Maybe, the HD STB will continue selling at the same Rs 1,399 price after the suspension of the SD box. This move from Tata Sky might force other DTH operators as well to stop offering SD STBs to new users. Tata Sky is the leading DTH service provider and it’s also having the cheapest HD Set-Top Box right now in the industry.

  Dedicated news channel for children launches on YouTube
Posted by: nairrk - 02-04-2020, 11:20 PM - Forum: Television News - No Replies


MUMBAI: Most of the news platforms across TV, print, and digital are targeted at adults. However, that is about to change as a group of entrepreneurs have joined hands to set up a one of its kind news channel for children on YouTube.

In today’s world of numerous news channels, loud opinions, debates, fake news, chaos, and noise, there is little content that is appropriate for children in the news space. Yet it is essential for children to understand current affairs from India and around the world.

This became the genesis of the idea to have a news channel for children. igraasp comes as a breath of fresh air to provide children well-curated, constructive, age-relevant news in a creative and well-researched manner.

igraasp (which is the acronym for ‘I Get Ready and Always Step Up) aims to start with a 15-minute weekly capsule of news delivered through their channel on YouTube every Sunday starting in February 2020.

igraasp started when four entrepreneurial mothers – Gayatri Luthra, Priya Wadhawan, Ruchi Mitroo and Shikha Chaturvedi wanted to spread the joy of seeking for information, news and current affairs amongst children. They wanted to provide a news platform for kids which would make them ‘future-ready’

Commenting on the launch of igraasp’s first episode, founder Priya Wadhawan said, “News is essential for children to build a habit to be updated about current affairs. However, we felt the need for a medium relevant for them as an audience to curate news from across genres and regions presented in a fun engaging manner, building their interest and awareness of the world around them.”

The founders strongly feel that a digital and child-appropriate current affairs news platform like igraasp will facilitate a child’s critical thinking, their emotional intelligence, enable them to comprehend issues, the scale of impact, and appropriate means to effect solutions.

The anchors for the weekly episode are interestingly crowd-sourced taken from different schools for diversity. These students have also undergone workshops and training for news anchoring. The show is hosted by these students and features child-friendly news across segments including National news, International news, Sports, Environmental updates, Space &Technology and of course the F square (the Fun and Facts section).

  Colors to beef up prime-time with new fiction show ‘Barrister Babu’
Posted by: nairrk - 02-03-2020, 07:06 PM - Forum: Television Programs - No Replies

[Image: Aura-Bhatnagar-as-Bondita-in-COLORS-upco...-Babu.jpeg]

MUMBAI: Known for its hard-hitting concepts, Hindi GEC Colors is coming up with yet another interesting show titled ‘Barrister Babu’. With this show, the channel presents a powerful narrative that highlights stereotypes that crippled our society during the pre-independence era.

The story highlights the fact that how, at a time when women were not allowed to have a voice and were deemed powerless, an innocent and curious 8-year-old, Bonita questions the deep-rooted prejudices against women.

Pravisht Mishra will be playing the character of Anirudh who is a Barrister. Joining him as the parallel lead is child artist Aura Bhatnagar, who debuts with this show and will be essaying the role of Bondita.

Commenting on the same Pravisht Mishra said, “I am very elated to be a part of the show, which has such a unique story. I am grateful to Colors for giving the opportunity to play the character of Anirudh. He is a progressive and whimsical Barrister who is also a benevolent social reformer and has just returned to India from London. I hope the audience will appreciate this new side of me as Anirudh and shower their love and blessings on me.”

Commenting about it, Aura Bhatnagar said, “I am playing the lead role in Barrister Babu and I’m very thankful to Colors for giving me this chance. I really love the concept as well as the character of Bondita in the show. Through my character, I hope to influence people to stand for their rights and achieve great success.”

  Zee Telugu to strengthen prime-time with ‘Prema Entha Madhuram’
Posted by: nairrk - 02-03-2020, 07:04 PM - Forum: Television Programs - No Replies

MUMBAI: Zee Telugu’s brand-new primetime offering ‘Prema Entha Madhuram’ brings viewers an unconventional romance that transcends the barriers of age, life stages and background.

In line with the channel’s brand philosophy ‘Aarambam Oka Aduguthone’, the show questions if people really need a license to love? Do lovers need external approval from society to feel for one another? Should factors like cast, creed, monetary backgrounds and, in this case, age define who should love whom?

Produced by South Indian Screens, Prema Entha Madhuram will premiere on 10th February at 9 PM, every Monday to Friday, only on Zee Telugu and Zee Telugu HD.

The series was applauded for the title song, which was shot in Pahalgam, Kashmir. For the first time in the Telugu television industry, Zee Telugu’s Prema Entha Madhuram title track caller tune is out for subscription on Airtel, Vodafone, Idea, and BSNL on popular demand by the ardent audience. This popular tune will also be released on OTT platforms soon.

Superstar Mahesh Babu joined hands with Zee Telugu for a unique concept video that already gained many accolades from the fans of Prince and ardent viewers of the channel. The charming star shot with the cast of the show along with the famed Anchor Pradeep Machiraju.

The business-romantic drama boasts of a stellar star-cast including the popular actors Venkat Sriram as Arya Vardhan and Varsha HK as Anu. Set against the backdrop of Hyderabad, Prema Entha Madhuram chronicles the unique journey of Arya Vardhan and Anu, two strikingly different individuals hailing from diverse backgrounds fall in love irrespective of their substantial age difference.

As their contrasting universes collide, will Arya Vardhan and Anu stand up against taboos and prejudice as they face the eternal question – ‘What will society say?’ Will the two muster the courage to admit their love?

As the story progresses, viewers at multiple junctures will be posed with interesting questions about love and companionship. Will a love so intense bow down to the cognition of age differences? Or will braving societal stigma together empower Arya Vardhan and Anu as a couple?

Posted by: nairrk - 01-31-2020, 10:27 AM - Forum: Television News - No Replies

[Image: Wetlands-Miracles-in-Mumbai-cover.jpg]

MUMBAI: On February 2, 1971, a small group of environmentalists signed an international agreement at the Ramsar Convention in Iran – this day came to be known as World Wetlands Day.

On this occasion, Hindi infotainment channel Epic brings a new Original – Wetlands – Miracles in Mumbai continuing the channel’s endeavor to focus on the country’s ecological diversity.

Shot entirely in 4K, Wetlands – Miracles in Mumbai will take the audience across these hidden biological gems in India’s business capital, along with underlining its strong position in coping with the alarming climate crisis. The 40-minute film will be telecast at 1 pm, 4 pm, and 8:30 pm to celebrate the World Wetlands Day, 2nd February on Epic Channel.

Apart from celebrating to the 58.2 million hectares of mangroves in the country that accounts for 3% of the world’s mangroves, Wetlands – Miracles in Mumbai captures the little nuances of nature’s coast guards that are invaluable carbon sinks, and miraculously countering forces against climate change. A visual treat for nature lovers, this Epic Special deep-dives into the rich ecosystem of wetlands around Mumbai, introduces some of its unique natives and features experts who elaborate on the role, relevance, and necessity on conserving wetlands.

Commenting on the launch of the film, Epic Channel Head – Content & Programming Tasneem Lokhandwala said, “Mumbai is always spoken of as the ‘maximum city’ and a ‘concrete jungle’, but few people are aware that it provides diverse habitats to hundreds of migratory birds and aquatic creatures even in congested areas like Andheri and Powai. Wetlands – Miracles in Mumbai will capture the complexity between this city and its surrounding ecosystem, with a never seen before view of Mumbai’s most valuable real-estate – it’s wetlands.”

From the majestic Flamingos that make Mumbai their winter home to lesser-known species of birds like the Bronze-Winged Jacana, White-Breasted Waterhen, Sandpipers as well as the myriad aquatic fauna, Wetlands – Miracles in Mumbai follows the many living beings hidden in plain sight amidst the towering skyscrapers of Mumbai.
