Imagine TV to go off air today!

There has been buzz about the channel shutting down for a long time now. We guess those rumours weren’t totally false. Here’s why the channel won’t be aired any more

Imagine TV, a channel which was owned by US-based Turner Broadcasting System Inc will officially go off air today. And the reason behind this is low ratings and failure to meet the desired targets in terms of viewership and popularity. The channel was launched in India on January 21, 2008. It changed hands from NDTV to INX group a while later. And now, four years later it will finally shut shop.

But this news doesn’t come as a big surprise. The channel was in the news for its dwindling numbers every now and then. Jamuna Paar, Dwarkadheesh, Saware Sabke Sapne Preeto are some of the shows that were currently being aired on this channel. And guess those weren’t very popular when compared to the latest shows running on rival channels Colors, Sony, Zee or Star Plus.

Even so, we’re curious to know the fate of the serials on Imagine TV, especially Swayamvar – Veena Ka Vivaah.  Now with the channel going off air will Veena Malik remain a spinster all her life? We can’t help but wonder. Guess it’s time to wait and watch how all this will affect the television world!Subscribe to me on YouTube

    very sad the the channel shut down. i wish some other channel wud run these shows.

  • kulbhushan sharma

    i m missing chandragupt maurya. it was the only serial i was watching and missing it badly. plz restart.

  • Arnav Ramkrishnan

    I wonder what will happen to Chandragupt Maurya? That was the only program I watched and egarly waited every week for it. I didnt call Saturday as Saturday. Like if anyone in my family asked what is the day, it was like “Aaj Chandragupta hai”

    Hope if it re-starts (only the show, I dont care about the channel) any how :(

  • Col JS RAJU

    I regularly watch “Chnadra Gupta maurya:\”
    My wife watched ‘preetho” every day.

    If it closes where will these serial go???

    Please advise

  • Sana

    i paid big canadian dollars to watch this channel… loved baba aiso var dhoondo, i cant believe they would shut down without finishing their dramas. i wasted my money for 2 years all for what??? if ndtv imagine team has any other channels b sure not to watch because i want them totally out of business!!

  • Abhinav

    hey what about chandragupta maurya…..it was the only serial i watched…..what will happen to this show now?

  • Arun Kumar Mahto

    I used to watch Chandragupta Maurya.Now,what will happen? Please,come back Imagine.

  • Tasneem

    I now the shows weren’t so popular but the people who were watching this channel liked the serials and so……… very less people now about this channel so how won’t it get less rating 1st you people have to think how many people of the world now about this channel…… In Saudi Arabia many people get to now this channel because Colors Star Plus Sony TV doesn’t work over here if it has to work we have to pay money 4 it……. so for this reason people is Saudi Arabia watch Imagine TV……. WE REQUEST YOU THAT PLEASE LET IMAGINE TV GO ON UNTIL THE SERIALS FINISH AFTER THAT YOU PEOPLE CAN SHUT IT DOWN AGAIN……………

  • Taz

    My mum loved this channel but my GOD I hated it!! I hated how they dragged 5min stories for 30mins with rubbish dramatic posh posh posh on every characters face when even the slightest drama happened and how every show had the same format, music, posh posh posh Zzzzzzzzzzzzz everyone needed the sack and this is the best thing that happened. Makers with no imagination and treating the public like mugs/robots and flogging a dead horse like Indian tv/cinema loves to do

    UK non viewer!
