Sikh channel (Sikh TV) to launch on Sky !


24 may-

A new channel devoted to the Sikh faith and culture is on the cards to launch on Sky Digital in June next month.

The channel, which will be simply known as Sikh TV is said to be in its "final phase” of launch and will be available on sky.

Sikh TV will be the second Sikh channel to be available on the digital platform after Sikh Channel, which has been broadcasting on Sikh issues.

It is not known if Sikh TV has any connection with Sikh Channel'
However, sources have indicated that the channel will have some involvement from former workers of the existing Sikh Channel.

Sikh TV will be based in west midlands with a base also opening in Southall.

The channel is going to launch an official registered charity. Sikh TV wants to steer away from pledging for donations from viewers-a tactic used by the current Sikh Channel, which keeps the service afloat. Sikh Channel has regularly requested for viewers to set-up direct debits to keep the channel running as it been found the sustainability difficult due to high operational costs.
