NDTV India - New 24 Hour News Channel

(October 2004)

This site closed in March 2021 and is now a read-only archive
Just back from a trip to SE Asia where I was able to watch the rolling news service from India's NDTV (New Delhi Television). The service is called News 24 x 7!

Although a bit of a mouthful to say, their content is actually quite good, and as one has now come to expect from the emerging Indian High-Tech era, their graphics really are exceptionally good. Production quality seems to be high standard.

Some of the anchors appear a little wooden, admittedly, but hey, I really enjoyed watching it. It was a nice change from Sky, CNN and BBC World.

Although, it was good to get back and catch WORLD again.

Anyone else seen NDTV's 24 x 7?

Yes I have, very good it is, it's available in Europe on Hotbird 13E, but you need to subscribe to Pehla Europe and you need a compatible receiver with Irdeto II CAM to watch it.

In fact their other channels are very good too, Aaj Tak and Star Sports/ESPN has every game from the FA Barclays Premiership complete with Sky commentry!
