If you are bored of regular shows on all other Infotainment channels, tune into “History TV18” for some real whacky and amazing shows. History TV18 is a new channel launched in October owned by a joint-venture between A&E Television Networks, owner of American History and Network 18, Indian media group. The channel is currently available in six languages in full HD across all major markets in India and plans to reach out to more than 50 million households.
Salman Khan has been roped as brand ambassador of the US based factual entertainment channel. It hopes to change the perception of history in India and by choosing Salman as the face of the new channel; they have already taken an imperative step in reaching out to all age groups and gender.
With the new avatar, the channel wants to transform people’s opinion about History. The channel today lays emphasis on people making history every day and trying to make this genre as popular in India as it is around the world.
All the shows on the channel have a different and intrusive trend about them.
– They have a modern feel because of the major theme “How Stuff Works”. This can be seen in shows like “Food tech“- how technology behind farming/processing works, “Extreme Trains“- how some amazing trains work and run, “Sliced“- how everything works?
– It blends well with historic themes like America- Story of US (again America is very modern society so it’s historic but modern), strange rituals (scientific explanation behind theories like hypnotism, sub conscious mind etc)
– Hindi dubbing is decent too.
India’s audience has evolved in terms of TV and its daily dose of entertainment. The History channel realized this fact and shows with apt motto-
“Kuchh Naya Dekho, History Bante Dekho” are on air.
So what are you waiting for? Get over the boring soaps, serials, reality TV shows and head for this one!!
