History[edit]

In May 2010, FDR Media Group Inc. was granted approval by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) to launch a television channel called Mehndi HD TV, described as "a national, niche third-language ethnic Category 2 specialty programming service that will feature topics of interest to Canadian women of South Asian heritage."[1]

The channel launched on November 28, 2011 on Bell Fibe TV and Rogers Cable as Mehndi TV in both standard definition and high definition.[2]
