What is the procedure to start a tv channel in india?
If you want to transmit on cable then talk to cable facility suppliers. (people who actually lay and maintain cables who own the cable network physically) then you can hire a channel from them.
if you want to broad cast through satellite then you need to hire a pod from the satellite company.
Neither of these facility come cheap and be prepared to loose a lot of money in first few years.
since you are not a production house, and have to buy all the pro grammes from the production house . Make sure you have a healthy bank balance.
Most of your income will be from advertising so you need facilities to produce them.
