UPDATE: Currently NDTV Imagine and 9X finally made their debut as FREE previews on DISH TV India. Colors TV by Viacom 18 debut on TATA Sky.

Reality Asia Channel aired some content from tru TV & Fox Reality. Due to money problems it's been shutdown by both satellite and cable providers in India.

DD India on DirecTV has a uplink issue that is why from the interruption on June 1 2008. The Movie: Rakht and several programs were shown twice forcing a complete shutdown. Usually for brief period in June. A color bar picture showed up.

DISH Network has uplinked a channel TV9 (Telegu) Ch. 807 on July 23 2008.

Were not the only ones in the United States. DD India was shut down in United Kingdom last month. DD India is available only in their country. Read on:

June 18, 2008

India's state broadcaster DD India's foray into the UK market seems to be shortlived after the channel was removed from the Sky Digital EPG.

DD India Debuted on Sky Digital Satellite on January 30, 2007.

When contacted Rayat TV, who run the channel here, denied rumours of closure and instead wanted to reinforce the message to viewers via BizAsia UK that DD India will be returning on air after a four-week span. While a reason behind the EPG removal wasn't explained, our source did say that the channel was undergoing a management restructure and was also in the midst of revamping the UK recorded shows.

Some in the industry are little sceptical about today's developments as until today, the channel's EPG was displaying "programmes not available" message on the EPG banner, since last weekend. Also, recently DD had sold its News EPG slot to 9X.

DD India has vowed to return next month, whether it does is a completely different take. Before removal, the channel was on EPG 833.

As always, keep it with us for the very latest on developments on DD India.

NDTV Imagine will show The Bachchan's Unforgettable Tour next month. Call DirecTV tell them you want the channel!

Thursday evening August 14, 2008. Ch. 2025 DD India is replaced by Times Now a news channel with in your face prespective. Too many news channels. Similar to what Sky Digital did to DD India now replaced by 9X News. Word on the streets is Rupert Murdoch was in India. It turns out he invested in a newspaper company.

Someone should grab DirecTV by their earlobes, tell them about NDTV Imagine and 9X sooner not later!

Rupert Murdoch-promoted News Corporation on Monday said it will invest USD 100-million in the next 12-months to start six regional channels under the Star brand in India.

"We will invest USD 100-million in the next 12 months to launch six regional channels under the Star brand in India,"

News Corporation Chairman and CEO Rupert Murdoch said in Mumbai.

News Corporation company Dow Jones announced the launch of Dow Jones India Titans 30 index. "We are unveiling the Dow Jones India Titans--a 30-stock index tracking the stock-market performance of prominent Indian companies," Murdoch said.

"It will be licensed to financial institutions as the basis of investment products such as exchange-traded funds," he said.

Where's the interest in NDTV Imagine and 9X. Rupert still loves STAR.

TV9 is a 24 Hour Gujarati News channel. It is not Telegu. Thanks
