The channel was known as DD Oriya in 2011, when the name of the Indian state of Orissa was changed to Odisha, and the Oriya language spoken there was renamed to Odia.
- In 1994, Doordarshan launched a number of channels in Indian regional languages. They were originally numbered from 1 through 18; they were renamed in 2000. (Most were renamed to the corresponding language; in the case of DD Podhigai, DD Saptagiri, DD Sahyadri and DD Girnar, they were named after hill ranges in the state where the language is spoken, while DD Chandana was named after sandalwood, a major produce of the state of Karnataka.)
