The licenses were granted to Pen Music Private Limited on 21st October 2019 while Network18’s licenses were granted on 8th April 2016. The cancellation of their licenses reflect that neither Pen Music nor Network18 will be expanding their bouquet offerings anytime soon.

As of this moment, the Ministry’s database reflects 919 permitted TV channels although the same may not be up to date, given the database still isn’t reflecting major updates that are already live.
