Tez News channel is a 24 hours Hindi news channel launched by the TV Today Network on August 22nd, 2005. Tez News, a satellite news channel, is the third news channel under the TV Today network.
The catch line of the Tez News, "Khabrein Phataphat", which literally means fast news, has propelled the channel into providing short segments of news, instead of long programme based news shows. The 24-hour Hindi news channel was launched with the sole aim of delivering news to the busy viewer who does not find enough time to devote to long and detailed news bulletins. However, recently the channel has changed its motto in to "Khabar Har Pal", meaning Constant News. The channel has also launched a website www.teznews.com in order to provide an interactive platform with its viewers.
Tez News channel was launched with the combined efforts of Aroon Purie, Managing Director of TV Today and G. Krishnan, CEO of the company. The channel has shorter news slots, with back-to-back news and no long-winded discussions or avoidable analysis. Its main motive is to provide its viewers with maximum news in minimum time. Tez News channel plans to further increase the news pie as it will attract viewers who lack time to view the entire news bulletin.
Tez News channel aims to augment the scope of the programs, so that the viewers and sponsors can derive the most out of the network. Besides the regular news updates, Tez news channel airs shows like Astro Uncle, Tez Taare and others.
