The channel has started Azan at 8.30 time band everyday. The new programs that are being introduced this month are Flavours of Faith, a program that showcases glimpses of teachings of all religions . A separate program on the life and the teachings of Gautam Buddha is lined up that will narrate stories from the life of Buddha and highlight his teachings in an applicative way along with simple meditation techniques.

The channel packaging that includes the recently acquired new look of the channel logo is being done innovatively that offers creatively done fillers or breathers that provide 3-5 minute breaks for the viewers in between scheduled programs. These daily fillers include mini program properties like - Instant Yoga (that carries simple yoga tips for daily use at office, while driving or at home. Customized tips are also available for different age groups-children, youth, middle and aged groups). There is a daily feed of humour with Osho Jokes and Osho statements in his inimitable style.

The channel has also short-listed some most popular mantras and inspirational songs. The mantras have been redone with more ambience, resonance and body in treatment of the songs that offers a fresh appeal to the established or stagnated audio perception.

To top it all, the channel has broadened the scope of its film library and added some legendary titles, that are lined up for telecast this summer.
