Since the beginning, the Channel could inspire the Malayalees to become highly astute, literate and politically conscious. Moreover, we have been encouraging them towards a silent social revolution. We created a niche in the industry with its distinct identity in the news and programmes with unique contents, without losing vista of the main objectives of furthering the family values and national integrity.
Within a short span of time, the channel could establish as a responsible public service institution that not only provides viewers swift, accurate and unbiased news but also educates and entertains through imaginative and social-relevant programmes. In the era of interactive and highly-competitive media, Jaihind TV always strives to make our viewers more informative and entertained with the highest ethical and journalistic standards.
The channel is run by a group of eminent personalities with Socio-Political and Journalistic excellence, spearhead by Shri. Ramesh Chennithala as the President and Shri. M.M Hassan as the Managing Director.
Presently the channel is being viewed around 10 million viewers in India through the DTH platforms like Tata Sky, Airtel DTH, Big TV, Sun DTH and Veideocon D2H. Major cable networks, MSOs, and more than 2000 local cable TV operators are carrying our channel. We have a strong footprint in the Middle East, South East Asia, Europe and the USA also. In addition, we are trying to expand our reach across the world through the various online platforms.
