Asianet Television Network has officially launched its Telugu entertainment channel Sitara from today October 09, 2008. The channel began its test signals in the second week of September, 2008.

The new channel has a two-phase roll-out. The first set of programming will have blockbuster movies, in-house content, including general entertainment, cookery shows, travelogues, soaps and live shows, while the second phase will see replacement of prime time movies with game and reality shows.

Speaking to us, Vijay Babu, chief operating officer, Sitara, says, “Sitara will add an new dimension to the Telugu television programming, which is fresh and different. We are sure that our viewers will enjoy the channel thoroughly. The talent shows and realty shows on the channel are informatively conceived and interactively executed, as we are set to redefine the television viewing tastes.”

Movies being popular in the region, most channels in this market bank substantially on Telugu movies for their content. Telugu movies are a crucial part of Sitara too, which has acquired a good enough movie library.

So far, the other content has mostly been generated in-house. The channel has been in the making for some time and hopes to aid the network’s growth.

Asianet will also launch a 24-hour Telugu news channel in the Andhra Pradesh in early 2009. The network also plans to launch a bouquet of channels in 2009 in markets including Tamil Nadu and Maharashtra.

Apart from other regions, the network has three prominent channels in the Malayalam market, including Asianet (GEC), Asianet News and Asianet Plus (for the youth).

  1. Sir,
    Your programmes are good. At the same time I would like to put before you about the programme’ sitarabalam’ : plz scroll the phone numbers or email id to contact. In my observation the programme iis good. Secondly the programme ” RANGUPADUDHI’ the anchor is very much talketive which is giving a little bit inconvenient to watch the programme.

  2. Sithara TV is too impresive channel for me in recent days and I want email id for sithara balam program.Also I love to watch PAKASALA programme its very nice with so many new recipies.

    • Hello Lavanya,
      I am also regularly watching sitara balam and I become fan of SITARA BALAM. For your information, they are not giving any email id or contact phone numbers. You may send your name, date of birth, place of birth and time of birth to 56006688. SITARA BALAM may call you on your number.

  3. Sir,

    The programmes are excellent in your channel. The pakashala is awesome for food lovers, similarly rangupaddudhi, sitara balam, chinni chinni asha. I would like to compliment about the chinni chinni asha program, this is very good and this is the first time i am seeing such a wonderful program from a channel. We are the regular watchers of all the programs, I am recommending your channel to all my friends and relatives, even they are happy about few of your programs.

    Specifically I would like to make a comment regarding the moving transmitted by your channel. Your are showing same movie for atleast 4 times(ex – Athirindiya chandram, chanikyudu and etc). There are 100s and 100s of movies, There are many old movies(may be flopped ones) in telugu, which are even transmitted by DD. Then why are you repeating same moving again and again.

    Ok,
    i hope u understand the viewers problems.

    thanking you,
    mallik

  4. Hi,

    I agree with the mallik words, this channel is very impressive, i am expecting more programmes on social responsibility.

    Thanks & Regards
