NDTV Prime was launched in March 2014 with an effort to reduce its loss coming in from NDTV Profit. Micromax is the channel sponsor for three years. Prime works on show bands with sponsors. Post 5 pm, NDTV Profit converts to Prime and stays for the whole days of the weekend. The channel is looking at breaking even within a year.
