Sun TV adds channels to US bouquet

India's Sun TV Network has added four more channels to its US bouquet on the Dish direct to home (DTH) network.

Tamil comedy channel Adithya TV; the Tamil Gemini Comedy channel; Malayalam music channel Kiran TV; and Tamil music channel Sun Music are now available to Dish subscribers.

Sun TV, KTV, Gemini TV, Gemini Movies, Udaya TV and Surya TV are already aired by the Sun TV Network in the US.

The addition of new channels will provide the South Indian diaspora in the US greater variety, and provide the broadcaster with greater subscription revenues as a result.

"Dish dominates the South Indian market in the US and we are thrilled to bring more of our content to an even wider audience," said K Vijay Kumar of Sun TV Network.

Chris Kuelling, vice president of international programming, Dish, added: "We are the leader in delivering TV channels from across India to those in the US seeking news, music and entertainment from their home country.

"Dish currently offers 92 South Indian channels, and the launch of additional Sun TV Network programming shows our continued commitment to serve the South Indian community."
