Launched in November 1988, NDTV has become synonymous with credible news. Its first show, 'The World This Week' opened country’s eyes to the world in a way it had never seen before. What was one small step for a company called New Delhi Television Ltd was one giant leap for the Indian broadcasting industry. Together with a 1500 plus strong team of reporters and producers around the country today, the network has been instrumental in building the company’s brand and strength of news delivery. Incisive and creative, NDTV targets the global Indian with news that is credible, true and fast. It is currently the only English News Channel from India which is beamed in the UK, USA, Canada, South Africa, Middle East, Australia, New Zealand, Mauritius and most of the SAARC Countries to reach out to the Indian Diaspora.
Partnering NDTV in the 25 years celebrations are Tata Consultancy Services, one of the world’s top technology firms and Hotel Taj Palace, a part of the India’s most renowned Hotel chain the TAJ group, as title sponsors and hospitality partners respectively.
