It’s time to bid adieu to one of the favourite channels, Channel V as Star India has decided to pull the plug on the channel due to low TRPs. Channel V was the platform which introduced us to the hip-hop music. Channel V has been facing with dwindling viewership numbers from the last few years and instead of it, Star India will now launch a Kannada sports channel.
Actor Shruthi Seth wrote on Twitter, “End of an era… A farewell party is a must!”

The closure of Channel V may come as a big disappointment for its fans. Channel V has, after all, been around for more than 20 years. Here are the reactions of Twitter users:
One user wrote: “There was a time when music on TV for me, meant only MTV and Channel V. Haven’t watched either in ages. But still, a little sad to hear that V is shutting shop. Goodbye Channel V. Thank you for the memories,”
Amogh Ranadive took to Twitter to say: “Wrote my first ever TV show for Channel V, and was lucky to work with superstars
@juhipande, Manish Anand, @ExLolaKutty, @mojorojo, @VarunmThakur and @thetanmay.”
Another user wrote: “I must say it was heading there. coz MTV came up with innovative ideas like roadies and splitsville and channel V had creative ideas but somewhere they lost the track. PS: I enjoyed Lola Kutty shows through especially GK :).”
Channel V died years ago. https://t.co/KXLzJti3L1

Star India is shutting down Channel V & starting a Kannada sports channel instead. Wow. Those TRPs must be unmentionable!

Channel [V] is going off air forever. Everyday we lose some part of our cherished childhood. #90skid

Oh, RIP Channel [V]. Or as some family elders would forever say: Channel Five.
