NaMo TV, renamed Content TV, launched on major DTH platforms

The channel is available on Tata Sky, Dish TV and Videocon d2h

MUMBAI: With campaigning for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections 2019 in full swing, a new channel called Content TV has now been launched on all major DTH platforms such as Dish TV, Videocon d2h and Tata Sky. The channel, which has now been renamed, was undergoing test run for several months and went live as NaMo TV. The channel appears to be an extension of the hugely popular NaMo app that contains all the information about Prime Minister Narendra Modi's welfare schemes and other activities. For now, Content TV seems to be airing programmes related to the Prime Minister, his speeches and government ads. On Wednesday, PM Modi's address to the nation triggered a controversy with the model code of conduct in force. According to media reports, the PM may not have violated the Election Commission norms as the video was relayed via NaMo TV (now Content TV) and not Doordarshan or All India Radio. There is still some confusion with regards to Content TV given that there has been no formal launch or any information in public domain with regards to which company or individual in associated with it. Interestingly, neither Content TV nor NaMo TV find a mention in the list of permitted satellite TV channels on the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting (MIB) website.

Content TV is available on Videocon d2h, Dish TV, Tata Sky on 302, 770, and 512 respectively. The channel also has a picture of the Prime Minister as its logo.
