An interactive interview of Aamir Khan telecast by Star News on 26th evening must be an eye-opener for the politicians of every class & creed.Aamir is very clear in his mind about what he is doing and dares to express it. The program included his comments on reservation in educational institution.Is there a way to retrieve such programs officially from the channels and show it to those who, unfortunately, missed it last evening?
From: Sirsa News Desk:
Well, the official web site of the Star News is http://starnews.indya.com/ it has options to subscribe to log in into the site to view the matter posted on the Star News site. However the technology called IPTV, to watch TV programs already telecast at later stage (Video On Demand) is in pipeline and shall be soon available to Indian viewers as well, [IPTV is the next generation of convergence, which uses telephone lines to offer TV content unlike the existing system of having a separate cable for TV and phone. IPTV shall be bundled with other services such as Video on Demand, Voice over Internet Protocol or digital phone, and Web access, collectively called Triple Play. Airtel shall probably be the first company to launch IP TV in select Indian cities, later to available else where also.]
