Tamil Nadu state government run educational channel is available on both Dish TV and D2H at channel number 597. The free-to-air channel telecasts daily from 6 AM to 11 PM on both platforms – Dish TV and D2H.

Kalvi Tholaikkatchi telecast programs conducted by experts on preparing for competitive examinations as well as programs that enhance the student’s creativity with additional programming including major announcements related to students and live programs by the School Education Department of the Tamil Nadu Government.

The outbreak of Covid-19 has adversely affected the rhythm of school and college-going students. With the launch of Kalvi Tholaikkatchi on both our platforms, we are enabling several million homes across Tamil Nadu to receive quality education daily from the safety of their homes. This adds to the 33 Swayam Prabha and Kite Victers educational channels that we are beaming in the regions across the country from both our DishTV and D2H platforms.”
