Sky makes premium Asian channels available free to all customers

Wednesday, August 2nd 2017 by Phil Wilkinson-Jones

Sky has made six premium Asian channels available to all new and existing Sky TV customers.

The Sony ETV, Sony MAX, Zee TV, Zee Cinema, Zee Punjabi and B4U Movies channels were previously part of the Sky Asia Pack but are now available as part of the Original, Variety and Box Sets bundles.

Two new Asian entertainment channels – Sony MIX and MTV Beats – also launched yesterday.

They join a number of popular Asian channels already available to Sky customers including Sony SAB, & TV, Zing, B4U Music and four Star channels – Plus, Life OK, Gold and Utsav.

Sky customers will soon be able to enjoy the most popular Sony and Zee shows whenever they want as an On Demand service is launched this autumn.

Customers who had previously bought the Sky Asia Pack will automatically see a reduction on their monthly bill.

In June, Virgin Media increased its Asian channel line-up with the addition of Brit Asia TV, a channel dedicated to celebrating the achievements of the British Asian community.

Brit Asia TV is now one of 11 Asian channels included in Virgin’s Mix package and its addition followed the launch of Islam Channel UK and Islam Channel Urdu earlier in the month.

David Bouchier, Virgin TV’s chief digital entertainment officer, said: “With Brit Asia TV joining our growing Asian channel line-up, Virgin TV customers have got the pick of the best Asian programming.

“This forms part of our plans to offer greater choice and variety for our Asian customers, and we are always looking at ways to extend this programming offer even further in the future.”

Neither TalkTalk nor BT offer free Asian channels with any of their TV packages but TalkTalk does give its customers the option to add the Asian Boost, which includes Sony TV, Zee TV, Sony MAX and Zee Cinema.

no one subscribed to these channels cos they were rubbish, filled 10 min long ad breaks every 15 mins, on screen clutter during films and programmes. Who would pay for garbage like that ?
