BTVI has always strived to offer differentiating content to its discerning viewers. In the last one year, channel has launched many shows with a difference. While it caught waves for its pre- elections programming, its political and eco-political programming during the recently concluded elections confirmed the channel’s position to remain at the top.

No channel in the Indian news space has managed to bring politics and policy together.  BTVI discussed the latest issues in the political environment and its impact on the lives of general consumers through taxation, employment opportunities from an overall perspective of the economy. The recent viewership trends are testimony to channel’s efforts being in the right direction.

Speaking about the rise in viewership and the overall engagement of the channel, Siddharth Zarabi, Editor, said “We at Business Television India have always believed and strived in giving our viewers information that helps them take informed decisions in the realm of finance and money through our business programming or in social/political domain through our ‘business +’ programming. Our Pre election and Result day programming was designed and executed with the same objective in mind. And the viewership it garnered is a clear testament of our winning strategy and hard work. We thank our viewers for their faith and trust in us.”
