    Default Sahara One launching Hindi Music Channel.....


    Sahara One Network expanding its boquet with One more channel this time its music channel..... Read the whole News>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    MUMBAI: Sahara One Media and Entertainment Limited is all set to launch its Hindi music channel. "We are launching the channel in the next few weeks," said Sahara One Media and Entertainment CEO Shantonu Aditya.

    Indiantelevision.com had earlier reported that Sahara would be launching a music channel to expand its bouquet of entertainment businesses.

    The music channel will be encrypted but free-to-air. "We are big in Bollywood. A music is a natural extension for us. It will be a free-to-air channel at this stage," Aditya said.

    The name of the channel has yet to be finalised. The company launched its movie channel Filmy in February.
    Sahara One head Shailendra Singh said, "I am delighted to inform that we will soon be launching our next channel, which will be a Hindi music channel. It will cater to millions of music lovers across India and worldwide. Along with Sahara One Television and Filmy, our music channel will complete the genres of mass Hindi entertainment from Sahara One, and will strengthen our bouquet immensely."
    According to a statement issued by the company, Sahara One's forthcoming Hindi music channel will showcase the best of Hindi music from Bollywood films and non-film albums, along with music events and original programming.

    Aditya said, "As a genre, music channels have tremendous potential for mass acceptance and popularity, and we will try to give the same kind of innovativeness to our music channel’s programming that is seen on Filmy and Sahara One Television."

    He further added, "The new channel will also provide excellent synergy to the motion pictures business, which produces several films each year, thereby creating a lot of fresh content for our television businesses. In fact, Sahara One Motion Pictures, Sahara One Television, Filmy and our music channel will all be mutually supportive of one another and will enable us to deliver tremendous value to viewers and advertisers alike."

    Sahara will be back after 15th April,as u know sahara has rights of indian cricket matches(for india only) so it is encrypted as different tv channels have rights for different countries e.g Starhub singapore,geo pakistan,bangaldesh,tensports UAE,etc.It will be back after the TVS cup and last match ODI will be played on 15th April
    They put a notice on their website(lower right portion) that they will be back after the TVS cup.

    MUMBAI: Sahara One, the general entertainment channel from the Sahara group, is likely to become a pay channel in the next 6-12 months. Speaking to ET, Purnendu Bose, chief operating officer, Sahara One, said, “We’re exploring various options and haven’t yet decided whether to go with any particular bouquet or go paid by ourselves and other Sahara entertainment channels.”

    Mr Bose added that pricing has not been determined and Sahara One will wait till the air around CAS clears. Sahara One is currently fourth in the general entertainment sweepstakes, behind STAR Plus, Zee TV and Sony.

    The cricket telecast of the England-India series has significantly boosted viewership, said Mr Bose. “The weekly gross rating points (GRPs) have almost doubled, from 65 before the cricket series to 119 last week,” he said.

    Sahara One hasn’t ruled out bidding for cricket in the future, as it could lead to further interactivity with viewers. The channel will not increase its advertising card rates anytime in the .................................................. .................................................. ..............................
