Hindi film channel UTV Movies will begin transmission in the US through DTH by January next year, officials said.
UTV Movies is the film channel of UTV Global Broadcasting Ltd (UGBL) and is currently available in countries like Sri Lanka, Nepal, the Maldives, Japan, Australia and New Zealand. It was also introduced in the Asia Pacific region recently.
'Considering the US has a sizeable population of Indian origin and growing popularity of Bollywood movies among international audiences, we thought of introducing the channel there as well. The movies will be telecast through DTH,' Shantonu Aditya, UGBL's executive director, said in a press release.
