Thanthi TV (Tamil: தந்தி டிவி) is a 24-hour Tamil news satellite television channel based in Chennai, India. It is owned by Dina Thanthi group.


NDTV Hindu was launched on 16 May 2009 which was owned by NDTV (51%) and The Hindu Group (49%).[1] It was started as Chennai city-specific English news and entertainment channel and broadcast only in Chennai.

After Dina Thanthi group took over NDTV Hindu, they rebranded the channel as Thanthi TV.[2][3] Initially it was a Chennai city specific channel but after the acquisition process was completed, it was rebranded and relaunched on 13 November 2012 as 24-hour Tamil news channel which serves and broadcasts to Tamil Nadu, India.[4]
