DID YOU KNOW

India’s television industry has been experiencing rapid growth in recent times. Today, it is the second-largest television market in the world. However, that hasn’t always been the case. The beginnings of Indian TV can be traced back to the establishment of Doordashan in 1959, the National Television Network of India. It turned stagnant for a while until a boom in television ownership caused leaps and bounds in the advancement of Indian TV. The arrival of color TVs in the Indian market and the improvement of the country’s electric infrastructures became a turning point for the industry. Whereas before, lack of electricity in large swathes of rural India affected viewership, now half of the Indian households have television sets. From having only one private satellite TV channel in 2000, the industry now has 857 channels, with an additional number of 190 government channels. 

Moreover, there is an ongoing shift from traditional TV broadcasting into digitization and online streaming with the emergence of Indian channels online, which gives more avenues for watching television across multiple platforms. There are now sites to watch Indian TV shows online. This means you now have options to watch Indian TV channels wherever you are. You will no longer be able to miss out on the episodes of Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai, Naagin, and other genres of TV shows from drama, reality tv shows and more. In fact, streaming Indian shows is now possible even outside India. So if you want to watch Bigg Boss online, then that would now be doable. But then, you have to get the best Indian TV channel provider.

    "I've been looking and looking for somewhere that I can gain access to some Indian TV channels, and Sling TV has been the perfect solution! The cable that I have here at home doesn't offer Indian TV channels at an affordable price, but Sling TV does. It's A LA CARTE TV and it's amazing! I am now able to view all my favorite Indian movies and TV shows right from my own home/computer. For 25$ a month, it's my channels, my way!"

I am already satisfied with what this site can offer especially that they have my favorite talk show Kapil Sharma Show from sony tv channel. Can watch the replays anytime. And besides, I really love Kapil Sharma 😍😍😍!!!!"

She said it has a lot of INdian channels. Although there's a subscription fee, I find it worth it because I also get to watch other Zeetv shows and serials from other Indian tv channels! 😃"

    "If you are looking for a website to watch Indian TV Channels, I read that Voot is the place to go. However when going to their homepage I can find no information on their online streaming or video on demand. The page goes to an entry form for a dance contest. So, if you are looking for an immediate source of Indian TV channels, VOOT is not the place."

They offer Indian only packages or even American channels and Indian. I love watching shows from all over the world so when a company has the choice to offer all the different countries TV its great."

    "I really like the variety of Indian TV channels available to watch. Sadly the live tv sites wouldn't allow me to view them. They gave the error message "Content not available in this region1". I'm in America. This was a bit disappointing but there were other lots of great things to watch under 'Shows' option."
