Indian Broadcasting Foundation makes Sony Pal, Star Utsav, Zee Anmol and Colors Rishtey free for audiences for the next two months

The coronavirus is spreading like a wildfire across the world. It is already declared as a pandemic. More than six lakh people across the globe got affected by the disease. In India, more than 1000 people got infected with it. Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced a 21-day lockdown in the country to fight the disease. This has made people to get confined to their homes. The major source of entertainment at home is on television. To make it more feasible for the viewers, the Indian Broadcasting Foundation (IBF) decided to waive off tariffs on four channels for a period of two months. Those four channels are Sony Pal, Star Utsav, Zee Anmol, and Colors Rishtey.

 
IBF is a not-for-profit industry that promotes television broadcasting in, to and from the country. Giving its support to the central government in fighting the coronavirus, IBF has taken this decision of giving out channels for free. Sony Pal is a part of the Sony Entertainment company. Star Utsav comes under Star Group while Zee Anmol comes under Zee Group. Colors Rishtey is a channel of the Viacom18 group. Thus, all the major television giants in the country have come together to support the cause of the fight against COVID19.
 
IBF opined that this initiative will provide wholesome entertainment to people and eventually make them entertained during their home quarantine. Even streaming platforms are coming up with discounts to get more subscribers. This will help them to entertain the audience in this lockdown period. We have to see if any other channels follow the suite.
