NDTVIMAGINE is the channel some of us are waiting for. Hope DTV will air it. Their NDTV24x7 is an amazing news channel. This entertainment channel will be a cherry on the cake. You tube has amazing videos on that.

NDTV Imagine will air on Directv due to exclusive contract between directv and ndtv. My guess is NDTV imagine will air in March on Directv. Another guess is that Directv will charge extra for this channel.

I agree with you completely. NDTV is planning to launch three channels which includes a movie channel.

Will be worth it even if DTV charges extra.!!!!!

I guess KBC-3 will start in summer.

We should try calling DTV international services to find if they have any plans for carrying NDTV Imagine in the future.

Thanks

This is the email for the Distribution for NDTVIMAGINE. Try emailing and lets see the response. I emailed and they replied right away and last week they said they are closing the deal with DTV. I guess the more emails they get the more encouraged they are. This is the email address.

My experience with calling DTV regarding any new channel has always been very dissapointing. They hardly give any correct info. When MTVI launched I was not aware and when I called DTV they said they had no idea, while the channel had launched a week ago.
Best is to write to NDTVIMAGINE for any info.

I agree with Nina about directv csr's. They dont have a clue wrt new international channels. We need to contact the channel groups directly.

I emailed them last night and no reply so far. will update if they do.

Don't worry CSRs never know anything about new additions. NDTV Imagine will launch soon on Directv. I think it won't get added until channel goes 24/7 because currently it only airs about 4 hrs of programming every night.
