Distribution[edit]

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.[2]

Controversies[edit]

On 15 November 2011, in the country's highest defamation suit, the Supreme Court upheld Bombay High Court's order making Times Now liable to pay Rs. 100 crore. The channel had erroneously run Justice (retd) P B Sawant's picture instead of another judge in connection with the Provident Fund scam.[3]

Times Now was accused of misrepresenting facts regarding an interview it telecast of an alleged eve-teaser in August 2015. The News Broadcasting Standards Authority authorities asked Times Now to apologise and fined them 50,000 rupees for this.[4][5]

On 17 February 2016, Times Now aired an unverified video which accused Kanhaiya Kumar, a university student, of sedition.[6]
