Yeah Atlast TIMES NOW is on air, From today Jan 31 early morning … but guess what I am not satisfied with either the presenattion / the look or even the so called FEEL It looks more like a business channel and even the news selected were not that good. Will have to see how it catches up with other players.
There was some sort of BREAKING STORY it was about exclusive tapes of Abu Salems conversations with his hit men (repeated for ever, saying First time on Indian Television blah blah ….). God save Indian TV (Only news channels when I meant that)Such boring stuff that u switch over to either the CNN IBN / NDTV / the India TV / ZEENEWS or hoards of other channels. I think CNN IBN had outdone the others atleast thats what I felt, the otherday there was this one Richard Quest from CNN at CNN IBN studios he was super and believe me he is different from the pack of cards that present an extraordinary and unnatural formality on the screen.
From what i learnt on the programme 360 degrees with Sagarika Ghose taking Richard round the studio (CNN IBN) its an awesome programme. And they say there are nearly 70 and odd news channels (including the vernacular / local language channels) and its great to b part of the revolution.
