IBF Membership

The IBF story has unfolded in remarkable ways, through all ups and downs of the past 17 years. IBF stands ready, willing and able to provide the services that our members need to power their businesses.

As the premier body of Television Broadcasters in India, our members have built a strong foundation for IBF from which we continue to derive strength today.

We are pleased to inform members that the IBF membership base has expanded owing to clearances of several pending licenses/security clearances/renewals of member channels. While the number of regional channels has remained static in comparison to last year, in contrast, the tally of National Channels has increased to 178 and their numbers have gone past that of Regional Channels.

We expect these numbers to grow during the course of next year. The break-up of News and Non-News member Channels is given below:
