AAJ TAK is a 24-hour Hindi news television channel owned by TV Today Network. AAJ TAK loosely translates as "Till Today" or "Up to the Minute". AAJ TAK initially began as a news bulletin on a public television station in India and turned to an independent channel after the carrier did not renew its contract. In India, AAJ TAK is free-to-air. In 2006 it began offering a pay channel to international markets.


AAJ TAK has won the Indian Television Academy Award for Best News Channel for 13 successive years.[2] Aaj Tak has also won several other accolades, such as the Indian Telly Awards.[citation needed].

According to a 2006 poll jointly conducted by the BBC and Reuters, of specific news sources spontaneously mentioned by Indians, Aaj Tak was the most trusted.[3]
