New sports Channel from Nimbus :
And no, I am not talking about "Neo Sports". This nimbus channel is still a mystery for Indian viewers but Nimbus communication has unleashed yet another channel called - "Neo Sports Plus."
When Neo Sports concentrates on only cricket matches, NeoSports Plus will show other International and domestic sports such as Bundesliga, Series A and the World Badminton Championship.
Not only that, NeoSports Plus will show cricket matches in Indian regional languages as well, whenever possible.
The only question remains is where is this channel - So dear friend, the news is Nimbus don't plan to market their sports channels. they have given distribution rights to Star Tv and don't care whether viewers are getting at their home or not. Neo Sports Broadcast Cheif Executive Sashi Kalathil says that they will only market their channel whenever their is some huge cricket matches featuring India is coming up, otherwise they won't.
Of Course Mr. Kalathil, you know Nimbus has got the broadcasting rights of all cricket matches played in India. Why do you need to market yourself... needful people will find you... THEY JUST HAVE TO.
