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.
