The Ministry of Information and Broadcasting (MIB) yesterday updated its cancelled TV channels database with the cancellation of Living Entertainment Enterprises Private Limited’s ‘Living Travelz‘ satellite TV channel license. The Ministry has revoked the permission on 18th August 2021 as per the database. The database notes ‘Not Required’ as the reason for the cancellation of the TV channel license.

Interestingly, the channel continues to be part of Zee Entertainment Enterprise Limited’s (ZEEL) latest Reference Interconnect Offer (RIO) MRP – DTH Version 4/2021, published on 28th July 2021 and effective 5th September 2021. Living Travelz is listed as a Standard Definition channel serving the Infotainment genre in the Hindi language. The channel is priced at Rs 0.10 on an a-la-carte basis. It remains to be seen as to when ZEEL drops the channel from its RIO given the cancellation of the license.
