ABP News has become the first Hindi news channel to launch nationally on Freeview in the UK.
The launch is a part of IPTV specialist Vision247’s service, which has also introduced Revelation and The Jewellery Channel on the platform.
ABP News Network CEO Ashok Venkatramani said, ���The UK is an important market for us and it is our endeavour to provide credible news and updates to the South Asian community in the UK through multiple platforms. The launch of ABP News on Freeview UK enables us to reach out to a new audience and increase our viewer base.�
Vision247�۪s Tanya Vidmar said, ���As VisionTV�۪s channel offering grows, it is crucial they can be accessed in a timely and simple manner. Thanks to the genre menu, it has never been easier to navigate through numerous categories. Users will benefit from an improved user experience whether they are viewing via the VisionTV Freeview channel 244, desktop, EE TV or the VisionTV UK app.�
VisionTV consists of more than 20 free-to-air channels, allowing viewers to watch a wide variety of both UK and international programmes covering entertainment, sport, news, religion and shopping. VisionTV is the only portal on Freeview that aggregates multiple channels on one channel number. The new genre menu aims to streamline VisionTV�۪s search functionality making it easier for viewers to navigate through numerous categories via set-top box, desktop, EETV and the VisionTV UK app.
Previously, Rishtey was available on Freeview before ceasing late last year.
