The high-voltaged anchor, Arnab Goswami is back with Republic TV news channel which is also the first Indian news channel to be streamed live on Star India’s digital platform Hotstar.
From Rahul Gandhi to Arvind kejriwal, none will be left.
"Dear viewers, you've supported me over the years & Republic is the result of your faith. I am happy to tell you that Republic TV is a free to air channel. From Kashmir to Kanyakumari and Northeast to Gujarat, Republic TV is FTA (FREE TO AIR). My young, passionate, idealistic & committed news team needs your support. This committed news team is putting out a FREE TO AIR channel for you. Back them, contact your cable/DTH provider now," said Goswami.
In January, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) National Executive member and Rajya Sabha MP Subramanian Swamy had written a letter to the Secretary, Ministry of I&B, asking them how a tv channel could be allowed to use the name Republic as the usage of the term is restricted under the Emblems and Names (Prevention of Improper Use) Act, 1950.
And so, the name changed to Republic TV. Out of all odds, finally Republic TV bangs on social media.
Twitteratis welcomed Republic TV channel in their memes style.
Here are some Tweets on Republic's debut:
