MUMBAI:Come 14 February, and television will play cupid to couch potatoes who wish to spend the day at home.

A battle for the remote control is more than obvious as viewers decide what to watch - romance and love specials and blockbuster movies churned out by various channels or the World Cup cricket match between Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.

Channel [V] intends to pull at the viewers heart strings by playing 24 hours of best love songs and a [V] Crush special with the sexy supermodel, Yana Gupta. The channel will play romantic classics like Toni Braxton's Unbreak my Heart, Love is all Around by Wet Wet Wet and brand new chartbusters like Sorry Seems to be the Hardest Word by Blue and Elton John and I Need You by Marc Anthony amongst others, all day long.

Interestingly, MTV India will celebrate Valentine's Day rather differently with a showcase of romantic moments, sweet ballads and MTV's Jhankar Beats hosted by VJ Sophia. The one hour special at 11:00 am will include a chat with the movie's stars - Juhi Chawla, Rahul Bose, Sanjay Suri, Shayan Munshi and Riya Sen. The show repeats on 16 February at 7:00 pm and 19 February at 5:00 pm. The channel has also announced merchandise from the movie as prize to viewers who give correct answers to questions that would be asked during the special.

In keeping with the tradition, movie channels have slated an impressive array of movies to suit the viewer palette. Not to be outdone mainstream entertainment channels too have readied special programmes centred around the theme.

HBO will kick off "HBO's Valentine's Day Marathon" at 6:00 am .

Not to be left behind, Star Movies too will run a slew of movies like American Desi, Vanessa William's Courage to Love and David Lynch's controversial road film Wild at Heart with Oscar winner Nicholas Cage .

Coming to the mainstream entertainment channels , Zee TV intends to bank on the success of the Thursday Premiere mantra and will show Revathi's directorial debut - Mitr, as its Valentine Special. The movie starring Nasir Abdulla and Shobhna centres around Indian housewives who live with their husbands abroad and and showcases the identity crises that people of Indian origin sometimes face in a foreign land. The movie airs 13 February 2003 at 8:00 pm.

Also, the music show Sansui Antakshari will hold Valentines day special, for couples. The show which is in a mini series format of four episodes per month, with the final being held on the last episode, has introduced some innovative names that have been incorporated into the rounds are Musical chair, Parde Mein Rehne Do, Aaj Kal to name a few.
