ATN NDTV 24x7 (also known as New Delhi Television) is a Canadian Category B English language specialty channel owned by Asian Television Network (ATN).

ATN NDTV 24x7 broadcasts news and current affairs programs with an emphasis on India and issues related to the Indian community in Canada. Programs are primarily sourced from NDTV 24x7, an Indian-based television channel, and locally produced Canadian content.

History

In April 2005, ATN was granted approval from the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) to launch a television channel called ATN - South Asian News - English, described as "a national ethnic Category 2 pay television programming undertaking devoted to news programming about the South Asian subcontinent."[1]

The channel launched on December 19, 2005 as ATN NDTV 24x7 initially on Bell ExpressVu (now called Bell TV).[2][3]

On September 25, 2012, ATN NDTV 24x7's broadcasting license to operate as a pay service was revoked at ATN's request.[4] The channel subsequently re-launched as a regular specialty service on June 17, 2012, under the following license: ATN South Asian English News Channel 2.
