It’s time already for North East to finally get a channel that actually features bulletin in actual North Eastern language. Other than original NE TV aka Focus NE. No channel till date feature any bulletin except in Assamese, Hindi and English. ITV network have collaborated with good veterans in this space for the channel. Prag the first Assamese news channel is a rare success story where a local channel got to become a satellite channel. I can assure you the editorial of Prag is completely unbiased.

Channel available only in Airtel I think.

Tata sky should add the channel, but Itv network’s 3 channel Ptunes, P plus, Andy Khadiboli are not available in Tata sky so there is low chance of the addition.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
