Hence showing that ETC reigned supreme during this period.

Amongst the 15 to 34 years SEC ABC (27/06/2004 to 3/07/2004) ETC says Tam data states that the channel led with a market share of 35 per cent while competition, that is MTV was 22 per cent, Channel [V] was 17 per cent, B4U was 8 per cent, CMM was 2 per cent and Zee Music was 16 per cent.

Commenting on these changes and innovations ETC Networks CEO Jagjit Singh Kohli says, "We have brought in this change for a fresher, slicker and smarter look.

This is in synch with our commitment to Hindi films and music."
