Times Network’s second English news channel Mirror Now has launched a new show ‘The Last Word’, which will be anchored by prime-time anchor, Tanvi Shukla.
In his note to IBF, Jawahar Goel has emphasized on broadcasters providing pay channel content to Freedish and content to OTT platforms at cheaper rates, which is negatively impacting DPOs such as DTH.
Times Network’s English movie channel Movies Now is all set to host a superhero film festival, ‘Super Squad Homecoming’, in August.
The current news infrastructure of Times Now and ET Now is capable of producing more channels, Times Network CEO MK Anand said. When queried whether Times Network would look at regional channels in news, he said: “We could also look at regional languages.”
Mirror Now’s positioning is distinct from Times Now to prevent cannibalisation of viewership. It will stay away from political coverage and will focus on infrastructure and civic issues concerning India’s urban dwellings.
Movies Now will aim to further strengthen viewership across dayparts. Movies Now 2 will be top priority in 2017. Romedy Now will go beyond just being a TV channel.
Who owns the popular phrase “Nation Wants to Know” used by Arnab Goswami in the prime time show ‘Newshour’ telecast on Times Now? Arnab has received a legal notice from The Times Group over the use of the phrase even as he is getting ready to launch English news channel Republic TV.
In his previous assignment, Shouneel Charles was leading the digital business at NDTV Convergence as chief sales and marketing officer and chief revenue officer.
Giving his thoughts on the changes in TV news journalism, Arnab said that plain vanilla had no place in today’s India. Opinion, he said, was the future of journalism.
