There are already three channels in Assam, oldest being NETV, then NewsLive and DY365 apart from PRAG cable channel.
Though number of channels have increased in Assam, the quality and standard of reporting in the existing channels pale while compared to Delhi based news channels. But we can hope, both viewers as well as the people associated with these channels would be benefited. Also, we should expect some improvement in quality of content.
