That's the pretty good news for the industry as well as common people.
All the Rubbish , repeating and those 3rd Grade shows they are telecasting day by day , have to stop now.
And Acc to law , fittest will survive definitely. So those channels which have more rating and popular contents will definitely stay here.
And obviously people will buy only those which they need , not the item which they want. Definitely the people in industry who gonna lose their work , will make a way for sustain if they are really good at their work.

It is very strange that Sony is the only broadcaster which is continuously shutting down channels, whereas most others have no plans for the same. Not targeting SWP HD specifically (I know @DJ Roy and @dino29 bros believe that the channel can be revived with proper content), but Star made a plan to shut down Star World Premiere HD and did not follow through. Zee, Star and TV18 have far more channels than Sony, but they are not getting rid of extra channels.
most of the FTA news channel only telecasting false Hindu Muslim propaganda, showing prime time based on Whatsapp university news, no ground reporting and only mythological, astro show. have to stop now.
For the past 7 years at least, every few weeks there is a new news channel, especially in Hindi and Kannada, and in states like UP/UK, MP/CG and Rajasthan. The same goes for devotional/baba channels which keep popping up. This must stop. :angry2:

I think in general there are too many channels in India, so this is a good move. They should focus on higher quality programs and channels rather than quantity.
