Religious channel, Sikh TV will be launching on Wednesday 1st September, BizAsia.co.uk can confirm.

Sikh TV will become the second Sikh religious service to be available on the digital platform after Sikh Channel, which has been broadcasting since April last year.



Sikh TV will be based in Birmingham with a base also opening in Southall. The channel is going to launch as 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. The 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.


Sikh TV has acquired shopping channel, JML Lifestyle's EPG slot on Sky Digital and will begin broadcasting at 06:00 on Wednesday 1st September on channel 661 temporarily. It will then subsequently move to the 'International' category of the Sky EPG line-up as its permanent new home.
