A few ago we witnessed the birth of a brand new channel called NTV. The channel had pathetic coverage and even more pathetic was it's content. Mainly consisting of repeats of popular TV shows, this channel was doomed from the start. Apart from a few shows the only watchable content was some classical songs that they played from time to time.
It's actually good to have a state operated English language, but the next time this is tried out maybe more locally produced English content is the way to go.
NTV had potential but no vision. R.I.P NTV!
