In the era of competition, it’s very hard to run a TV channel. And what’s more, harder is to sustain an already broadcasted TV channel. There are many TV Channels that were started but do not go on forever. Here’s the list:
UTV Stars was UTV’s first foray into original TV content. It ran for 4 years, between 2010 and 2014.
Real only went on for a year between 2008 and 2009.
Doordarshan in a bid to target the metropolitan audiences started DD Metro. Further, the channel received appreciation but was unfolded in 2003.
Zindagi was the first attempt at improving the Indo-Pak relations as it aired Pakistani TV shows in India. But the unrest in 2016 between both the countries has led to the closure of the project.
The channel ran for 3 years. It played songs on viewers’ request.
NDTV Imagine/Imagine TV
NDTV Imagine/Imagine TV ran from 2008-2012. At the start, it got a positive response but later turned off due to lack of fan base.
MTV launched MTV Indies, the channel for independent artists- both from the world of music, and comedy in 2015. Later, Network 18 decided to name it MTV Beats, playing Bollywood music exclusively.
Channel V ran for almost two decades, before finally shutting operations in 2017.
