South Asian TV slowly coming to life
South Asian TV has finally started broadcasting on KHLM-LD 43.5.
As of now, there is no schedule posted on the station’s web site. As I type this they have gone from an educational program about tigers, to a brief musical interlude with scenes of India, back to the promotional loop they have been running for the past few weeks, to a black-and-white travelogue-style film.
The station is recruiting staff. Interested parties should contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stations like this, in my opinion, are what DTV, and especially low power DTV, is for: local stations serving underrepresented communities. Hopefully the local South Asian community will embrace this new broadcaster, and support it with their advertising dollars.
