NDTV Good Times and NDTV Profit wondering around for a leased office? It takes an office to get the channels running.

Today, DISH Network has uplinked an punjabi channel on Channel 602 coming April 22, 2009.


Does that mean those two channels are gone for ever?

Channel is called PUNJABI TV and here is more info:http://worldmediacon...om/Clients.html

I couldn't find anything related to this channel on the web. Here is list of all punjabi channels in the world and this channel isn't listed there so, this might be new punjabi channel. http://en.wikipedia....vision_channels

PTC Punjabi is better option then any other punjabi channel.

Can someone summarize which Punjabi channels are available now on Directv? Do I need a special dish? I currently sub to Dish Network for South Asian channels, but my channels have gone black and they won't send me new cards.

Is there a link to what Directv offers?

TIA.

I completely agree. It is horrible. The minute you let them know they will ask us to reset the receiver. Their standard answer.........

I saw the latest directv advt. in the Indian Express. It moved the UTV to channels in hindi directI and DirectII.

It says NDTV Profit and Goodtimes coming soon? My guess is it will come in 2-3 months.

UTV movies need to send this information to Directv. Normally it takes a few weeks for a new indian channel.

I just got done talking to CSR and I was told that the (Profit and Goodtime) channels should be launching anytime next week. I will believe that when I see them on my tv :)



Any updates?
