PTC Punjab’s leading television network confirmed plans to launch 3 new channels for the public to enjoy very soon ‘PTC Gold, ‘PTC Simran’ and ‘PTC Music’.
Rabindra Narayan, PTC’s networks president and MD stated that these three new channels would help promote Punjabi culture, Punjabi lifestyle, Punjabi language, and Punjabi Virsa.
“PTC Network is launching three more channels as a gift to our loyal viewers,” Rabindra Narayan said in an interview with a leading daily.
‘PTC Gold will be a treat for sports lovers as it will showcase sports related programmes such as CWE Big Fight, Kabaddi matches and hockey matches among others,” Rabindra Narayan added.
Talking about the ‘PTC Simran’, Rabindra Narayan said: ‘PTC Simran is going to be a 24-hour channel devoted to promote Sikh religion. Live telecast of Gurbani from different gurudwaras will be the USP of this channel. Besides, it will also teach history related to Sikh pilgrimage.”
Questioning on why the network needs a new music channel, the president said: “We are launching PTC Music channel on the special request of the audience. More than 2800 songs were released recently and they could not be played on just one channel. Hence, there was a need of another music channel.”
Rabindra Narayan also said that PTC doesn’t care for trends and this is the only Punjabi channel that doesn’t broadcast songs related to drugs, weapons, and those against women.
