MUMBAI: Sun TV Network is shutting down six channels including four ad-free action movie channels and replacing them with new channels in Malayalam, Telugu and Kannada language. The company has got the approval of the Ministry of Information & Broadcasting (MIB) to re-launch the channels. The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has also approved the pricing of the new channels. Sun TV Network is shutting down Tamil GEC Sun TV RI (Rest of India) and Malayalam movie channel Kiran TV, which is being re-branded as Surya Movies. Sun TV RI is a mirror of the network’s flagship Tamil GEC Sun TV; however, its broadcast is specialised for all states other than Tamil Nadu, allowing advertisers to focus on specific geographical areas. The four ad-free movie channels also being shut down are Sun Action in Tamil, Gemini Action in Telugu, Suriyan TV in Kannada and Surya Action in Malayalam.
