Colors’ new free-to-air entertainment sister channel, Rishtey has begun testing off the Sky Digital EPG today.

The channel is currently running testing programming through the old Imagine Dil Se channel ID. The Rishtey test also is scrolling the launch of the channel as Monday 3rd September. Rishtey will be available on Sky Digital channel 831 from this day as a free channel.

The broadcaster is keeping tightlipped about the channel’s plans but is expected to make an announcement later this week.

Rishtey will be the company’s first channel in the UK, which will run free-to-air. It will broadcast re-run shows of Colors and new offerings, plus movies. The branding of Rishtey is similar to Colors with the corporate multi-coloured petal and similar font.
