Times Now is a 24-hour English language news channel based in Mumbai and broadcast primarily in the South Asian region and sparingly across the USA through partner networks. The channel was launched as a joint-venture of Bennett, Coleman & Co. Ltd. the publishers of The Times of India and Reuters. It launched in early 2006 expanding Times Group's reach into news television programming in India as well as to try and carve out its own slice of the English news channels in India.
It was the first news channel in India to be launched on mobile screens (Reliance Infocomm Network), ahead of the TV launch and has significantly strengthened the digital presence since.
TIMES NOW is brought to you by Times Global Broadcasting Co. Ltd., a Bennett, Coleman & Co service. We operate out of Mumbai, with presence in 15 other cities through our Bureaus and offices, complemented by the news gathering teams of The Times of India and The Economic Times.
TIMES NOW is available across all platforms in India viz. Analog & Digital Cable and DTH,and on mobile through Reliance and Idea services. The Channel can be viewed LIVE outside of India on www.watchindia.tv with a Broadband connection.
