JumpTV to offer 3 Sahara channels

MUMBAI: Jump TV, a global player in the delivery of international television over the internet, has added three more channels to its basket of Indian channels. The online television platform player will be offering general entertainment channel SaharaOne TV, movie channel Filmy and a news channel Sahara Samay. 

Recently, SaharaOne Media and Entertainment had entered into a long term deal with New York based broadcast distribution outfit GloboSat Entertainment in order to help the company launch its channel services at various countries.

Sahara One, Sahara Samay and Sahara Filmy will be priced individually at US$9.95 per month when launched commercially and will likely become part of a future bundle of South Asian channels, according to an official release. 

JumpTV, at present, offers other Indian channels such as Sony, India TV, Amitra TV, Kairali TV, People TV, Punjab Today and Balle Balle.

JumpTV International president and chief executive officer Kaleil Isaza Tuzman said, "Hindi is the fifth most spoken language in the world. The addition of these channels makes it easier for the millions of Hindi speaking people living outside South Asia to remain connected to the television programming they know and love from home."

JumpTV Asia-Pacific group general manager Kevin Foong said, "JumpTV remains focused on securing the global IP rights to top channels in key regions worldwide. The potential for adding more subscribers by making Sahara programming available online is exciting and provides the partners in this agreement an opportunity to profit through a revenue sharing structure."

GloboSat president and CEO Sudhir Vaishnav said, "With our state-of-the-art production and broadcast facilities in New York and Toronto, we are able to create local content as per market needs. Our strategic partnerships with DTH, cable, broadband, IPTV, mobile and other platforms spanning across North and South America, Europe and the UK help our broadcast partners to build international presence faster."
