    @aprisagar, not worthy of you.

    @seychellesblue, A full scale TV channel requires a lot of investment. I am no expert and I doubt whether anyone can give full confident information. But you will probably need the following:

    a) You will need broadcasting equipment, Television network experts, content ideas
    b) You will need content (TV programs)
    c) You will need to have sponsors
    d) You will need govt. permissions to start a channel
    e) And you will need a lot of money upfront coz sponsors will come later

    can u show me where i said that on ur blog? i suppose my comment is still there on ur blog and it proves no point of discourage to u. I was rather excited at that fact, to make things clear. anyway, that didnt succeed also (Thats not my point anyway whether u succeed or not). Also if the memeber seychelles wanted to start tv channel, he wouldnt be here asking for it (means how to start one) . hope that makes sense. And yes, stop being against me even though u own this place. This is second time on forum.

    I dont need encouragement from YOU. Your remark was very insulting and according to the forum rules you warrent a permanent ban.

    Who are you to judge if seychelles wants to start a tv channel or not or wether he/she is capable of investing the kind of money it takes?

    There is a question in the first post if you cant provide a straight answer how about staying out of this thread?... why question someones ability or inability of doing something or even their desire?

    I have nothing more to say on this...
    If you do please keep it to yourself and learn how to behave in public.

    It would be great If someone could post the details of how to start a local TV channel.

    For example, License that are required, equipments required, technicians required, etc...

    Looking for a existing TV channel owner or some employees of TV channel to give appropriate answer to this topic.

    Thanks in advance

    A local TV channel is allowed on Cable TV network.But you cannot uplink the programs/ etc to a DTH satellite without GOVT permission./licenses etc.
    Contact your local Cable TV franchisee , to check
    whether he can help you to feed your TV programs in his network. ( It could be for one hour or H24).


    Now SUN Networks started with a recorded VHS video cassette of local events/talent/news etc ( called "PooMalai" meaning Garland) and could be viewed in the cable network. ( at that time the Cable operators and individuals could access different TV Channels directly with Satellite receivers and Dish Antenna etc ).Also they used to transmit in cable network pirated Videos of latest movies also !!.

    Now all this is not possible as Networks like SUN ZEE AIRTEL etc have taken over the DTH network and also give feed to cable operators.

    Para two:

    No wireless signal exceeding 100mW power , in any form can be transmitted by any/individual./organisation, with an external antenna without proper licese/permission from
    Ministry of Communications WPC wing.
    ( License conditions might have been updated ).
    http://210.212.79.13/
    Please clarify, whether you want to start TV B/C
    like NDTV/ZEE/SONY/SUN etc.
    The present channels available in the language of your choice.
    I am neither a TV Channel owner or employee Of TV Channel.
    .
    You are free to reject/ignore all ,or any of the above ,and wait for appropriate answer from person/s as specified by you.

    Best of Luck , for your new venture.

    So for starting a Local television I need to contact the Local Cable operator and need not acquire any license from govt right?

    Then can you tell me about the infra that are required along with manpower?

    Whether I can expand the distribution to two or three nearby cities? A rough estimation of cost for setting up the local TV channel is needed.

    Thanks in advance
