Sun TV Network adds 4 channels on Dish Network

MUMBAI: Sun TV Network has added four more channels to its bouquet in the US on Dish Network, taking its total fleet to 10 on the DTH platform.

The channels – Adithya TV (Tamil comedy), Gemini Comedy (Telugu comedy), Kiran TV (Malayalam music) and Sun Music (Tamil music) – are available from today onwards.

Sun TV Network already airs Sun TV, KTV, Gemini TV, Gemini Movies, Udaya TV and Surya TV in the US.

The company believes that the addition of new channels will give the South Indian diaspora in the US a greater variety of choice in the genres.

Sun TV Network’s K Vijay Kumar said that the development will allow the company to further expand its reach in the international markets and enhance the subscription revenues.

“Dish dominates the South Indian market in the US and we are thrilled to bring more of our content to an even wider audience,” Kumar added.

Sun TV Network offers 32 channels in the four South Indian languages. Apart from US, many channels are also available in Canada, Europe, Singapore, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand.

Said Dish VP of international programming Chris Kuelling, “We are leader in delivering TV channels from across India to those in the US seeking news, music and entertainment from their home country. Dish currently offers 92 South Indian channels, and the launch of additional Sun TV Network programming shows our continued commitment to serve the South Indian community.”
