Tamilan TV from India, which has been broadcasting from India for several years, launched in Europe in February this year (2018) on Eurobird 9B (9 degree East): 11881, Vertical, SR 27500 and fec 2/3. The channel is available free-to-air on Eurobird satellite along with IBC Tamil TV, Athavan TV, Holy God, NLM TV and the pay-TV channel Star Vijay TV.
It came as a surprise when Tamilan TV launched in Europe on satellite in a time where many European based Tamil radio- and TV-channels were leaving satellite transmission to only be online based channels. It was expected that the channel would only be available temporary in Europe, but now it seems to be that the channel is making a more permanent stay in Europe.
Tamilan TV is available as a seperate feed for European Tamil viewers and the channel is branded as "Tamilan TV Europe" with a logo for the European feed. The programmes are also different from the Indian feed, and the channel will show programmes focusing on "Tamil", music, movies etc. Tamil companies from Europe are also able to advertise directly on Tamilan TV Europe if they contact Tamilan TV in India.
If you don't have a satellite dish anymore in Europe, viewers are able to watch Tamilan TV Europe live from Media Asia's Live Tamil TVs page, or through Tamilan TV Europe website or through their app on Google Play.
Tamilan TV Europe's website is currently under construction. But the live stream of the channel is available on their website.
