Colors, Rishtey, Rishtey Cineplex & News18 to join Sky basic pack

2947

In another first on BizAsiaLive.com , we can reveal Viacom18’s channels – Colors, Rishtey, Rishtey Cineplex and News18 will enter the Sky Original Pack later this month.

The four channels will join Star Plus, Star Gold, Star Utsav, Life OK, ZEE TV, ZEE Cinema, ZEE Punjabi, &TV, Zing, Sony Entertainment Television, Sony MAX, Sony SAB TV, Sony Mix, B4U Movies, B4U Music and MTV Beats, all of which are available to all Sky subscribers at no extra cost. Colors HD will join the Sky Box Sets pack, which also includes Star Plus HD, Sony TV HD, Sony MAX HD and &TV HD.

Colors, Rishtey, Rishtey Cineplex and News18 have up until now done well as free-to-air channels on the Sky platform. The changes will now put all the major Indian broadcasters in the same pack, which will make observations on UK ratings a little more interesting.

Recently, BizAsiaLive.com reported that Rishtey Cineplex left the Freeview platform. This was to pave way for the changes taking place on Sky.

Colors, Rishtey, Rishtey Cineplex and News18 will join the Sky basic pack from Thursday 17th August.

  1. This is really disgusting for European viewers… We could watch those channels because they were FTA, but now, we don’t have any other option. All those channels are only on the satellite Astra 2 and on no other satellite, and in Europe, we have no solution to get a SKY box as it only works in the UK.

    • who the hell watch TV in 2017 when u can watch every show online. mos of shows are also available on youtube, Otherwise u can subsciribe to Yupp Tv they offer almost all major Indian channnels. Best solution is IPTV box. a single payment and watch all channels for Free.

    • True! So what we (European Users) should watch now? Sky Basic Packs are not available here in italy (they are but not with indian channels!) Really a disgusting thing! No more hindi channels FTA means no more viewers from all over the europe! A great loss to Hindi Entertainment and Bollywood. Only religious channels will remain (Sikh Channel, Akaal Tv, and so on) among with News channels….WOW! A clap for the marketing teams of these channel who made this “great” decisions! Tariyan!

  2. This shows they don’t care about their European viewers! All that matters is money and ads. It is really shameful that they take this decision. None of the channels are available on any platform in my country, the only option was to watch them FTA on Sky (Astra 2).
    They didnt even think a second before taking this decision about European families, mothers, wives who watch these channels daily.
