Worldspace to launch another indian channel

WORLDSPACE(R) Satellite Radio Launches India's First 24-Hour Gujarati Channel

SILVER SPRING, Md., Dec. 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- WORLDSPACE(R) Satellite Radio , one of the world leaders in satellite-based digital radio services today introduced 'Radio Umang', the first ever 24-hour Gujarati radio channel for subscribers in South Asia including the Company's primary market of India. 'Radio Umang' (channel 111) presents a unique platform, ranging from the pulsating tunes of the Garba and Dandia Raas to the melodious Sugam Sangeet and Ghazals, that showcases the rich diversity of musical traditions of Gujarat. There are over 50 million people in India alone who speak Gujarati.

I'm thinking these guys are in deep trouble do to the recent rollout of hundres of new am/fm stations that will blanket all of india. From most available information , the documents required to launch repeater networks.Still reside with the government of India for some reason.

Xmsr pulled the plug for a reason.I would think it was for reasons other then the issue of available time alone
