Jagran Group’s news channel, Channel 7 is planning to expand its operations by launching its service in the UK and also in the US.

The channel, which launched in April in India is also available online at NumTV.com.

“We are already talking to parties and plans are still at a nascent stage. These are distribution companies, which we will partner to take the channel to more places in the US and the UK,” said Mr Piyush Jain, Chief Operating Officer, Jagran TV Pvt Ltd.

Currently, the channel is available through the Internet as part of the channel’s licensing agreement with NumTV.com.

“Through NumTV, we have taken the first step in making the channel available through broadband; but now we are looking at distributing the channel in countries where there exists a substantial Hindi speaking population,” says Mr Jain.
