VH1 to be launched in India

Viacom's music channel VH1 will soon be aired in India. According to Indiantelevision.com:

"...Interestingly, the premium music channel from the Viacom stable is being launched not on the Sony - Discovery One Alliance platform, which is where MTV and sister kids' channel Nickelodeon are, but on the Zee - Turner bouquet."

"...MTV Networks Asia Pacific president Frank Brown said, "The launch of VH1 in India represents a new milestone reflecting our rapid growth and development in the country. This launch makes it the third 24-hour VH1 channel in Asia and the 18th channel to join the MTV Networks family in the Asia Pacific region. It also makes India the second country, after Australia, in Asia that carries all three MTV, Nickelodeon and VH1 on a 24-hours platform."
