Odisha Television enters the list of top 15 networks in India

It becomes only Odia language network to enter the list

MUMBAI: Odisha Television, popularly known as OTV has become the only Odia language network to enter the list of top 15 networks in the BARC’s network-level performance for the month of July 2020. It is the pioneering media venture that redefined television viewing in Odisha.

OTV carries the onus of charting a course that behoves its pioneering efforts. The channel is respected for its free, fair, and unbiased news reporting, its integrity and commitment to set and practice enviable standards of journalism. The Odisha Television Network is more than a household name in the state catering to 45 million Odia speaking population across the globe.

Launched in 1997, Odisha TV has always led from the front in its 24 year-long journey from cable television channel to satellite channel and now also dominates the digital world in the Odia language, with no significant competitors.

“We pride ourselves for being number one not only as a news channel but for being at the helm in all the five genres of TV channels in Odisha. We are the only uni region network in this list of top 15 TV networks of India with no other regional or national channels in our bouquet. We dedicate this to the relentless efforts of our journalists and the undying trust of our viewers for their support throughout,” says Odisha Television Limited MD Jagi Mangat Panda.
