Asian Television Network signs Republic TV deal
Toronto-based Asian Television Network International has signed a content distribution agreement with Republic TV of India. Programming from the English-language news channel will air nationally on a 24-hour licensed news service operated by ATN. This is the first time Republic TV programming will run in North America.
"We are excited to have Republic TV's high quality programming available through ATN's Canadian licensed platforms," said Shan Chandrasekar, president and CEO of Asian Television Network. "Since Republic TV's launch in India, it has had a large share of voice in the Indian news space. With their compelling content, we hope to reach the large South Asian diaspora in this part of the globe and make the network more holistic."
