Thanthi TV is a Tamil news channel owned by Dina Thanthi, the leading Tamil daily newspaper. Thanthi TV was launched in 2009 as NDTV Hindu, an English local news channel and a joint venture between NDTV and Chennai-based national English newspaper The Hindu. Like its Delhi counterpart NDTV MetroNation, the channel covered local news and variety events in the city of Chennai.
Metronation Chennai Television Ltd., which ran the channel, was sold to Dina Thanthi in 2011; NDTV Hindu ran for a year as a bilingual channel (English and Tamil) before rebranding to Thanthi TV (Tamil-only) in 2012.
