The channel was launched in 2006 by Times Global Broadcasting Company Limited, a joint-venture of The Times Group (Bennett, Coleman & Co. Ltd.) and Reuters. Sunil Lulla was hired from the Sony Entertainment Television as CEO. In 2008, Reuters exited the venture by selling back its 25.82 percent stake in Times Global to BCCL.
Along with the other Times group channels (Zoom, ET Now and Movies Now) Times Now is distributed by Media Network and Distribution (India) Ltd (MNDIL), which is a joint venture between The Times Group and Yogesh Radhakrishnan, a cable and satellite industry veteran, under the brand Prime Connect.
