Doordarshan Kendra Hyderabad was inaugurated by the then President of India, Neelam Sanjiva Reddy on 23 October,1977. The service has been extended to the entire state in a phased manner by installing Terrestrial Transmitters of different capacities ( HPTs, LPTs, VLPTs ) in different parts of the state. In addition to the Terrestrial transmission, DD Hyderabad programmes are beamed through DTH and cable networks.[1] Doordarshan Kendra Hyderabad’s Regional Network in Telugu took on a new identity as “DD Saptagiri”, on 2 April, 2003.
