Our Bureau

MUMBAI, June 10

ZEE Telefilms Ltd (ZTL) has said it has been given approval by the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting to uplink four additional channels directly from India. These channels are Alpha Kaveri, Alpha Bharati, Alpha Krishna and Alpha Urdu.

With this, ZTL has received permission to uplink 10 channels from India through the teleport of Essel Shyam Communication Ltd at Noida.

ZTL said it would be offering its channels under two broad categories — the regional channels under Alpha platform and national channels under Zee.

"In three to four-months' time we will be re-launching the current Bharathi and Kaveri channels as Alpha Tamil and Alpha Kannada which will soon go off-air for the make-over,'' ZTL said quoting Mr Sandeep Goyal, Group Broadcasting CEO, ZTL.

"We will also in due course examine the launch of Alpha Telugu and will evaluate our options in the Urdu space,'' the release said.
