NBF releases statement after news channels go off-air
On 1 February 2022, about 11 news channels went off-air due to a satellite outage. The outage was a result of interference with a radio frequency from 6:30 PM IST. 
NBF has shared that the body is working closely with all the relevant stakeholders to ensure that the news services are broadcasted as soon as they can possibly be restored.  
The news channels that have gone off-air are Angel TV India, Madha TV, Makkal TV, Kairali News, Puthiya Thalaimurai, Sankara TV, Subhavaartha TV, Vasanth TV, Public TV, Polimer News, and Mathrubhumi News. 
NBF said, "We assure ardent news channel viewers, advertisers and our distribution partners including local cable TV operators, and multi-system operators, that we aim to have the service back. We thank PlanetCast Media, Tata Communications, Intelsat and Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) for taking up the issue on priority and working on it." 
Whilst writing this news update, an NBF source has shared that they have yet to get any update from ISRO and the affected news channels.
