The Government has decided to show BTV World, a channel owned by Bangladesh TV, on the Doordarshan (DD) Free Dish which will be available for the viewers of the national broadcaster.
At the same time, DD India would be made available in Bangladesh for being viewed by the people in that country, an official press release said.
This arrangement is the result of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) signed between Prasar Bharati and Bangladesh TV (BTV) on May 7.
BTV World would be of special interest to the viewers of Eastern India, the release said.
"The decision marks an important watershed in the strengthening of ties between the two countries and follows with an earlier decision taken by the two Governments to co-produce a film on Banga Bandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, which will be directed by the eminent film director and producer Shyam Benegal," it said.
The Government has also approved the proposal of Prasar Bharati for making available KBS World, an English 24x7 channel of the Government of South Korea on the DD Free Dish.
Simultaneously, people of Korea would be able to view DD India in their country, the release added.
