PRLog – Sep. 26, 2014 – 01/09/2014 – Paris, France: Chitram Ltd. announced today that it has signed an exclusive agreement with Tamil Television Network (TTN) for Live & On-Demand global distribution of the TTN Television Channel through the streaming service ChitramTV™.
This service will be offered to customers worldwide and will be available in all ChitramTV packages. This includes the existing customers where the channel will automatically be integrated into the service as well as for new customers and it is available on the devices Chitram STAR HD and Chitram GALAXY HD.
Tamil Television Network (TTN) is a France-based Tamil language (http://en.wikipedia.org/ wiki/Tamil_language) satellite television channel (http://en.wikipedia.org/ wiki/Satellite_ television). Its main audience are Sri Lankan Tamils (http://en.wikipedia.org/ wiki/Sri_Lankan_ Tamil) living in Europe, Australia and the Middle East. The channel mainly broadcast films, live broadcast of football (http://en.wikipedia.org/ wiki/Association_ football), crickets matches (http://en.wikipedia.org/ wiki/Cricket) and news. Having emerged from the 1997 Paris based Radio Asia (founded by Sabapathy Suppiah Kuhanathan, editor of Eelanadu) launching Tamil Radio & Television (TRT), the first Tamil-language TV station outside India (http://en.wikipedia.org/ wiki/India), TTN is one of the most traditional Tamil broadcasting channels.
In 2013 TTN Tamil Oli has started their own IP TV Service, where you could watch Tamil Channels like TTN Tamil Oli and more channels.
By partnering with Chitram Ltd. and using the state of the art technology of Chitram TV’s OTT platforms TTN is now able to concentrate on their core business, which is television broadcasting for the south Indian community living abroad.
“The TTN partnership fits perfectly well into our philosophy to offer Ex-Pat Indians to stay in contact with culture and language of their motherland. TTN is most certainly one of the pioneers of Ethnic broadcasting having started with Ethnic Radio already nearly 20 years back when the whole Ethnic marketing was not even a factor to most companies. This partnership and the integration into our service is clearly strengthening our position on the IPTV market offering us the chance to target an even wider audience.”, states Liudmila Ador, CEO of Chitram Ltd and continues “In this context we would like to point out that the distribution of TTN channel is exclusively handled by ChitramTV and no other rights are given to third parties. If someone sees TTN content on other platform please help us to fight piracy and inform either TTN or Chitram Ltd. in order to take legal actions. Nowadays piracy is a factor that hurts the Television broadcasting industry in the high millions and also negatively effects providers that are working within the legal frame.”
“We’re proud of the distribution of our content to viewers through Chitram TV’s OTT platform. After surveying the current market development we came to the conclusion that there is only one company to team-up with. The service, the technical set-up and the support of ChitramTV is absolutely unique on the Indian IPTV market. With this strategic partnership we will be able to reach globally the households of Ex-Pat South Indians with a stable und high quality service. We decided to tie up the deal exclusive to position ourselves on the market with the goal to make people understand that TTN is finally completely back in TV broadcasting at a high level.”, said Umakaran Kandasamy, Director at Tamil Television Network.
