One more local TV Channel launched in Assam

News Time Assam, a new Assamese satellite channel would be formally launched tomorrow by Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi at Guwahati. This was announced by Gautam Kundu, chairman and managing director, Rosevalley, and Pratap Bordoloi, chief editor, News Time Assam during a press conference today.

He also informed that the channel would organise educational competitions with awards, reality shows, promote scholarships and customer care oriented programme to attract viewers.

β€œThe USP of the channel would be its fair and balanced, sensitively treated news with creative and original programming,” Kundu stated.

News by Assam Tribune.

There are already three channels in Assam, oldest being NETV, then NewsLive and DY365 apart from PRAG cable channel.

Though number of channels have increased in Assam, the quality and standard of reporting in the existing channels pale while compared to Delhi based news channels. But we can hope, both viewers as well as the people associated with these channels would be benefited. Also, we should expect some improvement in quality of content.

    …hey guys @ NEtv..won’t it b gud if this blog trudges on to be a co0l social-interactivity media for all the young & old people of the ne india…???
    If it becomes so..than all the mundane follies can be straightaway heard from the heart o N.E India…we all talk about Akhil Gogoi or Anna Hazare’s martyrdom..or that of our young and ancient legends like Lachit Borphukan or Kanaklata.
    Don’t you guys think that this funda of blogosphere can realLy thrash out all the social evils of our native land?

    …a lot can happen through this trick..real public voice can be thrown on the forums of the blog..a lot more can be done through a weekly votings on socio-cultural issues, by the common masses..this cocktail methodology to hear from every native speak on the forum desk..helps & take d issues infront of the blind eyes of the gov

    There is no question of it not working..the only thing that needs to be watched upon is the activeness of the won’t survive if the comments & answers arrives after a year

    ….it should not be static.

    The internet is a rich source to do great things for free (like me pointing out a cool way to use the blog as a socialnetworking path for reconstructing the social disorders of Guwahath as well as all the N.E states)

    The blog can be used just like we do in Facebook, Orkut, Twitter or WordPress..& also be informative like the Wikipedia or our friendly Yahoo Answers.

    ..i am a born as such this idea struck me after looking over your blog…
