Television is relatively a young medium in India, restricted until the early 1990's to the State owned broadcaster, Doordarshan (DD). Even DD began national telecasts only in the mid-1980's, when indigenous satellite technology made it possible.

Private television channels relying on satellites for transmission and on cable networks for dissemination began to make their presence felt by the early 1990's. It was only towards the end of the 1990's that 24-hour news channels catering specifically to Indian audiences – in English, Hindi and other languages – emerged at the national as well as regional levels.
